20.2 - Rookie At the Top - Bamaace83's task: Family Vacations
Summer months always bring multiple opportunities for family activities. Growing up, we were shipped off to our grandparents’ houses for a few weeks. Family reunions, day trips, and sporting events were also on the family summer calendar. Memories were made that I will cherish for a lifetime. For this challenge, it’s a perfect time to remember our families.

Read one book from one of the options listed below:

Option 1: Read a book with the genre "Family" on the main page. For example: The Last Song, If I Stay, My Sister's Keeper, The Glass Castle, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Option 2:Read a book with one of the following words in its title or subtitle: “family”, “vacation”, or “reunion”. Plural versions are acceptable, but no other variations are allowed.

Required: State which option you used when you post.

Joanna (walker) | 434 comments Could you please approve Moral Disorder: and Other Stories for family in case the genre drops off the main page later?

Thanks.

With this task, series titles are excluded, so Vampire in Denial will not work, but either Vampire Vacation or Reunion would work for option 2.

The 'family' genre is listed on the main page, but I'm worried that it might change before I read/report.
