It’s easy to join in! You can play from anywhere in the world and there are hundreds of dollars' worth of books up for grabs.

Solve a series of book-related challenges as quickly as you can to collect coins. The five Bookaxers with the most coins at 8pm (UK Time) on 30th April 2018 will each win a bundle of books, and the Bookaxer with the most coins overall will also win a place in our Bounty Hunt Hall of Fame!

Everyone who has played will also be entered into our lottery draw, giving them more chances to win books.

Good Luck!

UPDATE - The 2018 Bounty Hunt has now closed and will return bigger and better in 2019. You can still take on the challenges but any coins you collect will not count.

The Lottery

For those finishing outside the top five there is still hope!

Terms & Conditions

1. The Bookaxe Bounty Hunt will end at 8pm UK time on 30th April 2018. This is the deadline for collecting coins and all counts will be frozen at this time.

2. In the event that multiple Bookaxers have collected the same number of coins, the overall winner will be determined by who completed the highest level challenge. In the event that a tie persists, the winner will be the Bookaxer who completed it first.

3. Bookaxe's decisions regarding winners are final.

4. Bookaxe reserves the right to disqualify any participant who they feel has not played to the spirit of the game, for example (but not limited to), publically revealing the answers to challenges, etc.

5. Only one new user per IP address will be rewarded with coins. Please do not create multiple fake user accounts - we will know who you are and you will be instantly disqualified!

6. For shelving, axing and TBRing books, coins will be awarded once per category for the duration of the Bounty Hunt.

7. Bookaxe Bookcharts are regularly updated to reflect the behaviour of Bookaxe users. The latest Bookaxe bookcharts are found here.
