DHASG September Challenge



Introduction: September is the ninth month of the year, and summer is breathing its last gasp. Kids are back in school, and people start gearing up for the fall holidays and events. But we still keep reading. We'll see what goodies the month of September will bring us for our next challenge.

Instructions:

1. Books must be read between September 1st and September 30th of the month.
2. Please post on this thread that you are signing up and update your stats as you finish. Let the moderator know when you are completed in your final post.
3. A book can only be used once in the challenge.
4. Books of any genre can be used for the challenge, unless a particular part of the challenge states otherwise.
5. Happy reading!

Levels:
1. Fall in Love with Reading: Read 10-12 books
2. Working 9 to 5: Read 5-9 books
3. Box Lunch: Read 3-4 books



1. School is In!: Since school is back in session, your homework is to read the first book in a series that you have had on your bookshelf/ereader for more than six months.
2.Argh!, Matey!: September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. In honor, read a book with pirates in the storyline. Alternatively, you could read a book with a character named: Jack, Anne, Henry, Edward, Morgan, Jean, William, or Mary (all famous pirates). Another alternative would be to read a book where the main character is pregnant (women pirates could escape hanging by pleading their bellies), or is a runaway from a very bad lifestyle (since this is why many turned to piracy).
3.Labor Day: Since the first Monday of September is Labor Day, celebrate by reading any book you want for this part of the challenge.
4.Respect Your Elders!: Not only does Grandparent's Day get celebrated in September, but in Japan they celebrate Respect for the Aged Day this month. In honor of these days to celebrate the older people in our lives, read a book with a character who is older than 59. Yes, you can count an immortally young character, as long as they are chronologically older than 59.
5.Fight the Power!: Mexico celebrates its independence day and Mozambique celebrates its revolution this month. Read a book with characters who are fighting against cruel authorities or for their independence (freedom fighters).
6. Be Prepared!: In the US, we celebrate National Preparedness Month in September. Read a book where the main characters are prepared for any eventuality. You could even read a book where the main characters practice "safe sex."
7.Hispanic Heritage Month: Since we celebrate the contributions of people of Latin heritage in the US this month, lets do it by reading a book with a main character who is of Latin heritage or descent. You could also read a book set in a Latin American country or in Spain or Portugal.
8.La Couleur Bleue : Sapphire is a birth stone for the month of September. In honor of its color blue, read a book with a main character who has blue eyes, blue hair, wears a lot of blue; you could read a book that has blue on its cover. You could also read a book that makes you feel blue (aka sad). Since sapphires are associated with loyalty and faithfulness, read a book where the hero stays faithful to the heroine no matter what.
9.The Balanced One: Libra is the other birth sign for September (along with Virgo). Libras are known to be fair, tactful, and charming. They are known for their balanced approach to situations and people. Because they are so amiable, they have trouble saying no to others. Although they can be selfish, they never betray others. Read a book with a main character who exhibits any of the above traits.
10.Forget Me Not!: Myosotis is a genus of blue annuals or perennials that are one of the birth flowers of September. According to folklore, God named them when they called out 'forget-me-not'. Read a book with a forgetful or amnesiac main character. Alternatively, read a book with an enduring love story. Also a symbol of those lost in war, you can read a book with a main character who lost a loved one in war or someone whose life was devastated by war.
11. Love in Vain: The Morning Glory is one of three birth flowers for September. It symbolized "love in vain" in the language of flowers during Victorian times. Read a book about unrequited love, or one in which the character loves "not wisely nor well." Since it is now the symbol for genuine affection and the 11th Wedding Anniversary, you could use it for a book in which the main couple has had a long, happy marriage.
12. History 101: Since school is in session, read a book that commemorates one of the following historical events that take place in September: The Great Fire of London, Elizabeth I's birthday, The start and end of the 2nd World War, Discovery of Penicillin, Elvis Presley appeared on Ed Sullivan for the first time, The word 'obey' deleted from the marriage ceremony vows. Indicate which one you picked and how it was used.

Let's celebrate the first month of fall and a month full of reading in September!

Kim Davis | 134 comments I am starting Calculated in Death (In Death, #36) by J.D. Robb for #8. I think it fits in two ways; the cover is blue, plus Roarke always stays true to Eve.

8.La Couleur Bleue : Sapphire is a birth stone for the month of September. In honor of its color blue, read a book with a main character who has blue eyes, blue hair, wears a lot of blue; you could read a book that has blue on its cover. You could also read a book that makes you feel blue (aka sad). Since sapphires are associated with loyalty and faithfulness, read a book where the hero stays faithful to the heroine no matter what.
