Read as many as you want:
1. April brings us Earth Day (22nd) and Arbor Day (5th). Read a book in which nature plays a major role. Suggestion: Zollocco: A Novel of Another Universe
2. New Year in many Asian countries arrives in April. Read a book which relates to your Resolution for this year.
3. Buddha's birthday is said to be 8th of April. Read a book in which meditation or self sacrifice is a major theme.
4. Fourth Thursday of this month is Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day in the US. Read a book in which family is given importance.
5. In Greek mythology, Taurus was identified with the bull whose form Zeus took to rape Europa, a legendary Phoenician princess. Read a book in which either of these play an important part: Greek mythology, rape, princesses or bulls even!
OR
Pick a word related to this month and read books to spell it out! You can use character names, book's title, series title or even the author's name!

Examples:
H: A Highlander Christmas (Highlander, #7) by Janet Chapman (Series name begins with an H)
E: The Edinburgh Dead by Brian Ruckley
A: Baited Blood (A Madison Rose Vampire Mystery #2) by Sue Ann Jaffarian (Female lead is named Ann)
R: Celtic Evil Roarke (Fitzgerald Brothers, #1) by Sierra Rose by Sierra Rose (Author's surname begins with an R)
