MountainKat | 8666 comments December Monthly Challenge


This thread is for participants to post their lists and update their progress. The thread for suggestions is HERE.

1. 'D' is for December: Read a book that starts with 'D' or by an author whose first or last name begins with 'D'.

2. Happy Birthday!: Read a book from a December 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 December Birthday List

3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Wisconsin. Wisconsin is best known for the Green Bay Packers (the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team in the United States), their Cheeseheads (Wisconsin is known as America's Dairyland) and all the beer they drink (Milwaukee was once home to four of the world's largest breweries). I may have stretched the truth there a bit, but for this category you can also read a sports related book or one in which food/alcohol plays a large part in the story.

4. Winter (Southern) Solstice, Dec.21: The solstice brings us the shortest day of the year, so read a short book - one under 200 pages.

5. Winter (Southern) Solstice, Dec.21: The solstice also brings us the longest night, so read a book over 300 pages.

For those of you on the south side of the equator, just reverse those! =)

6. Humbug Day, Dec.21: Read a book with an unhappy, cynical or Scrooge like character.

7. Look on the Bright Side Day, Dec. 21: Read a book that features a happy, optimistic or Pollyanna like character.

8. New Year's Eve, Dec. 31: Out with the old… Read a book that has been neglected on your TBR, one that gets you current in a series, or an old favorite either book, author, or series.

9. New Year's Eve, Dec. 31: And in with the new! Read something new to you - a new release, a new author or a new series.

10. Reader's Choice: Read any book of your choice.

You can choose 3, 5, 8 or all 10 categories, depending on your reading speed, book availability and/or time commitments.

When posting your progress, please make sure to put the date you finished each book.

Please repost your progress as it helps with updating!

Happy Reading!

MountainKat | 8666 comments Yes, I am posting this early, hopefully that will help with all the holiday craziness surrounding us. Please remember though that the books need to be both started and finished within the month of December to qualify for this challenge! So don't think you can get a head start with your reading, only your planning! =)

Dami (Damiellar) (Damiella) | 15 comments I'd like to give this a go!

This thread is for participants to post their lists and update their progress. The thread for suggestions is HERE.

1. 'D' is for December: Read a book that starts with 'D' or by an author whose first or last name begins with 'D'.

2. Happy Birthday!: Read a book from a December 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 December Birthday List

3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Wisconsin. Wisconsin is best known for the Green Bay Packers (the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team in the United States), their Cheeseheads (Wisconsin is known as America's Dairyland) and all the beer they drink (Milwaukee was once home to four of the world's largest breweries). I may have stretched the truth there a bit, but for this category you can also read a sports related book or one in which food/alcohol plays a large part in the story.

4. Winter (Southern) Solstice, Dec.21: The solstice brings us the shortest day of the year, so read a short book - one under 200 pages.

5. Winter (Southern) Solstice, Dec.21: The solstice also brings us the longest night, so read a book over 300 pages.

For those of you on the south side of the equator, just reverse those! =)

6. Humbug Day, Dec.21: Read a book with an unhappy, cynical or Scrooge like character.

7. Look on the Bright Side Day, Dec. 21: Read a book that features a happy, optimistic or Pollyanna like character.

8. New Year's Eve, Dec. 31: Out with the old… Read a book that has been neglected on your TBR, one that gets you current in a series, or an old favorite either book, author, or series.

9. New Year's Eve, Dec. 31: And in with the new! Read something new to you - a new release, a new author or a new series.

10. Reader's Choice: Read any book of your choice.
