It's that time again. First day of Winter is Dec 21st. Challenge ends when spring officially starts on March 20th. So, figuring the world won't end on Friday, you can start a new challenge.

Read to complete the word WINTER, by using either the first word of the title (A, An, and The don't count), or first or last name of the author. You may only use a book once for this challenge, but you may combine it with other challenges.

Example:

W -
I -
N -
T - To the Nines by Janet Evanovich
E - Evanovich, Janet - Hard Eight
R -

message 4: by Barb (new)

Barb | 1072 comments Are we limited to just cozies? Or do other books count too? I have a lot out from the library that I need to finish before the end of the year, and I think some might work for this challenge, but they're not all cozies.

It happens. I used to pick out books to read to help complete challenges but after a year of doing that I ended up reading alot of things I might not have wanted too (not all bad but not all good either) and neglected what I wanted to read if it didn't fit challenges. So now I'm more careful what challenges I join and usually they are more general and not highly specific. You've still got a couple months on this so don't worry about it yet. ;)
