This month has that trust Labor Day holiday in it which gave me an idea for this months challenge:

What is your dream job? Use that as an acronym. If your dream job is too long or specific than tell us what it is and chose the letters you want to do. You can use any part of the title of the books for your letters. Examples are below.

Examples:

This is the easy way:
C - Call of the Wild
O - The Odyssey
P - Letters To Pastors' Wives

The Call of the Wild by Jack London The Odyssey by Homer Letters to Pastors' Wives When Seminary Ends and Ministry Begins by Catherine J Stewart

More complicated choice:
I want to be a Deep Water Marine Biologist. I can only manage to read 5 books for this challenge so I am going to do D T M R B.

D- Demonic Dora
T- Beyond the Wall
M- Mrs. Poe
R- Follow the White Rabbit
B- The Bookstore

Demonic Dora by Claire Chilton Beyond the Wall Exploring George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire by James Lowder Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen Follow the White Rabbit (Beautiful Madness, #1) by Kellie Sheridan The Bookstore by Deborah Meyler

Read as little or as much as you can, but please join us.

Happy Reading!

I almost went with author, but it's a slow pursuit.

Good for you Heather. I found it difficult to have time for pleasure reading while in school. I really liked Exalted and I recently read an ARC copy of the sequel Denounced. Let me know what you think of The Bar Code Tattoo-I've been putting that book off for some reason.

Heather DeChaume | 27 comments Well up to now I've taken my basic classes online so my time was completely flexible. Now I have to go on campus because of my science classes. I just recently added these to my tbr list. I'll let you know what I think of The Bar Code Tattoo.

I want to be an author, and I would love it very much but my dream job would be to be a Marine Biologist. I want to specifically study sharks, but just anything marine would make me happy. Well except Dolphins, because they scare me a little.
