MountainKat | 19706 comments 2013 September Monthly Challenges

This thread is for suggestions and questions for the various categories. The thread for the participants is located HERE.

1. 'S' is for September: Read a book that starts with 'S' or a book whose author's first or last name starts with 'S'

2. Member of the Month - Pollyanna: Pollyanna has been a member of the RRRC since January 2010. Here is the link to Pollyanna's shelves. Please read a book from any of Pollyanna's shelves or a book published in 2010.

3. Geography - Connecticut: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Connecticut.
Fun Facts about Connecticut:
★ Connecticut is known as the "Constitution State".
★ Connecticut is named after the Connecticut River. The word is a French corruption of the Algonquian word quinetucket, which means "long tidal river".
★ The famous author Mark Twain was a resident of Connecticut.

So you can also read a historical romance set in the United States or any book where a MC works for the government. Or you could read a book with a body of water on the cover or is set on a body of water. In addition, you may read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or any other classic.

4. Fight Procrastination Day (Sept. 6): One problem with this group, it makes your TBR grow and grow and many books get neglected. Read a book that has been on your to-read (or similar) shelf for over a year. Or if you are a newer member to goodreads, one that has been on that shelf since you joined.

5. Make Your Bed Day (Sept. 11): Or don't! Read a book where someone ends up in a bed at some point - alone or otherwise! =P

6. Defy Superstition Day (Sept. 13): Knock on Wood, Cross Your Fingers or maybe counting on Beginner's Luck - all things we might be doing this Friday the 13th! Or you could read instead! Read a PNR, UF, horror or a book with any good or bad luck symbol on the cover.

7. Blame Someone Else Day (Sept. 13): Read a book recommended to you by someone or a book from your GR recommendations. Then you can blame, or credit, someone else!

8. Elephant Appreciation Day (Sept. 22): And there is so much to appreciate...! Read a book with an animal (or shifter) on the cover or in the story.

9. National Good Neighbor Day (Sept. 28): I have some and I hope you do too! Read a book where a neighbor plays part in the story or a friends to lovers story.

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

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

When posting your challenge progress, please make sure to put the date/s when you finished your book/s.

Please repost your progress as it helps when updating.

Happy Reading!!
