1.4-All-Star Game
Take me out to the ball game! Grab your peanuts, grab your hot dog, and don't forget your glove for those fly balls. Read a book that features baseball as a sport or with a baseball-related word in the title or a cover that has something commonly used or seen in baseball. i.e. My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, or Miss Peregrine's HOME for Peculiar Children

Now that all the festivities are over, it is time to relax and read whatever pleases you.

Two Point Tasks
2.1-The Olympic Rings
Read two book each book must have a predominant color of one of the 5 Olympic rings: blue, black, red, yellow, green. i.e. Without Mercy by Lisa Jackson, Withering Tights (Misadventures of Tallulah Casey, #1) by Louise Rennison, Wicked Ties (Wicked Lovers, #1) by Shayla Black, Where Dreams Begin  by Lisa Kleypas, Voyager (Outlander, #3) by Diana Gabaldon

2.2-Let's Travel
Watching the Olympics always makes me think of all the amazing places in the world that I would love to visit. Read two books in countries other than the one you live in. The two books must be from different countries. i.e. The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and Between Shades of Gray

I will have Diana post the last two tasks as soon as they become available.
