RRRC November Birthday List

3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Missouri. OR, Missouri is known for its farming industry (108,000 farms, the second-largest number in any state after Texas.) – so, read a book involving the farming industry, set on a farm/ranch, or about a cowboy.

4. Plan Your Epitaph Day (November 1) Read a book where a character’s death plays a significant role in the story, even if that character does not. (Murder Mystery anyone?)

9. Stay At Home Because You're Well Day (November 30): I LOVE this idea. What better way to spend a day at home, but curled up with a good book? Read a book that a friend has recommended to you. Tell us who recommended it (yes, it can come from the GoodReads Recommends List)

10. Reader's Choice:

Challenge Duration: November 1 to November 30, 2012

2012 November Monthly Reading Challenge
Duration: November 1, 2012 - November 30, 2012


0/10

1. “N" is for November: Read a book that starts with 'N' or a book whose author's first or last name starts with 'N'.

2. Happy Birthday!: Read a book from an November birthday celebrant's GR bookshelf whose name/nickname starts with the same letter as yours. If no one has the same letter, choose someone with the closest letter to yours alphabetically.
RRRC November Birthday List

3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Missouri. OR, Missouri is known for its farming industry (108,000 farms, the second-largest number in any state after Texas.) – so, read a book involving the farming industry, set on a farm/ranch, or about a cowboy.

4. Plan Your Epitaph Day (November 1) Read a book where a character’s death plays a significant role in the story, even if that character does not. (Murder Mystery anyone?)

5. Book Lover’s Day (November 3): This is a holiday made for the members of this group! Read a book. Simple, straight forward – you love books so pick one that interests you!

6. Forget Me Not Day (November 10): Read a book that has been on your to-read list for a long time.

7. Young Readers Day (November 13): Read a Young Adult book (it must be classified as YA on the GoodReads page)

8. Shopping Reminder Day (November 26): Naturally we are being reminded to do our Christmas shopping! To help you get into the spirit, read a book with a Christmas theme (perhaps you can pick one up while out shopping…)

9. Stay At Home Because You're Well Day (November 30): I LOVE this idea. What better way to spend a day at home, but curled up with a good book? Read a book that a friend has recommended to you. Tell us who recommended it (yes, it can come from the GoodReads Recommends List)
