How about a mini-super-challenge for 1 month? Basically, you need to average 5 films and 5 books per month to successfully complete the SC. So why not launch "The Super Challenge Prequel Challenge"?

5 books and 5 films, same rules as the SC, but you track it yourself?

Personally, I wouldn't be doing a book/film challenge before the book/film challenge. I reckon that would burn me out: a bit like climbing up a mountain part way before having to descend and start again.

The whole world is having to make adjustments and finding new ways of doing things for the next few months at least. It seems to me like a wasted opportunity not to bring forward this challenge which seems designed for this period of enforced isolation.

Nevertheless, I'll go with the decision of the organisers.

I think I’ll try to read a few books in English and get it out of my system before the start then. I’m having a bit of trouble concentrating right now, so I don’t know that I’d get much reading done in a difficult language right now anyway.

I'd be happy to try something like that. Maybe it could have a sort of theme to sort of differentiate itself as pre-challenge. Just a couple things that come to mind
- The Deep Dive - Read a single book twice. This can sort of scale as easy and as hard as you want. Could be a short story or a full novel.
- The Pre-Modern Pre-Challenge - Read something that was written over 200 years ago
- The Taste - Do a short challenge in a language you do not intend to do your challenge in and haven't used in a previous challenge. Who knows, you may find your plans changing.
