I'll be participating in this one. Not sure of my level yet though. I'm going to attempt medium. I'll pick a word(s) closer to the start of the challenge when I have a better idea of what books I'm likely to read.


message 3: by Julia (new)

Julia (juliace) I'm in a couple of other groups and so I'm going to go with 'Very Easy' - I don't have a book yet, but I'll look for one and post at a later date.


message 4: by Caru (new)

Caru I think I'll go with Easy since I'll be having a lot of testing for school during March


Iesha (In east shade house at...) (emberblue) | 140 comments I think I'll try for easy.

A Month of Summer (Blue Sky Hill #1) by Lisa Wingate Does this Book count? It has Flowers on the Cover.
I have a Book that I think I can Read for this, but how does this work, Lura?

That's fine. I'm not intending the restriction on the Very Easy difficulty to be terribly strict. As long as *you* think the cover fits as a Spring scene, it's fine. ^_^

I do, most definitely, because I think of Flowers as Spring. My Mom had her first Daffodils come out today. She cut them and put them in a Vase.

Well, okay then. Looks like you found your book. ^_^

Caru Sorry but I can't do this anymore, I have testing and other things :/

No problem. I'll remove you from the list of participants. Good luck with your tests!

Oh, and if you find out you can do it after all the tests are done, you can always rejoin. ^_-

After we read the Book, what do we do? And also, do we start reading it on March 20th?


message 15: by Lura, The One Who Loves to Write (new)

Lura (luraj2612) | 1475 comments Mod
Just post here that you read the book, thereby completing the challenge. You can read it anytime during the challenge: 20 March through 20 June.

You can start it earlier, so long as you don't finish it until after the challenge starts.

Lura (luraj2612) | 1475 comments Mod
Oh, yeah. Definitely. I'll probably do a 'Read the Season' challenge for each season. I have ideas for several other challenges as well. ^_^

Found two short e-books and read them in the past couple of days, so I just need to finish Wings of Redemption by the 20th! Shouldn't be a problem as I'm halfway through already. ^_^
