Welcome to The Amazing Book Race!
The Amazing Book Race is a AMMP Book Challenge in which teams of two people race around the world with Books in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at "Book Stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win points and to avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination. Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including airplanes, hot air balloons, helicopters, trucks, bicycles, taxicabs, cars, jeepneys, trains, buses, boats, and by foot. Clues provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. These challenges are related in some manner to the country wherein they are located or its culture. Teams are progressively eliminated until two teams are left; at that point, the team that arrives first in the final leg is awarded the grand prize.
