10.6 - Spring Showers
Because spring showers often bring rainbows, read a book with the genre GLBT on its main page. The genre may stand alone or be embedded under another genre.

Huh, weird because its GR description is lesbian Jewish magical realism...I will read it anyway and see what happens! Thanks!

Also if I got them both approved for length together?

Sorry, Fiona. According to SRC Rules: Only plays or books of poetry may be combined to reach the 100 page minimum. Other genres of books must meet the 100+ page requirement on their own. So those won't work for the challenge.

It has GLBT on its main page, so it fits.

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 3596 comments Hmmmm ... I could have sworn that earlier today I saw that someone had gotten approval for Chocolates for Breakfast by Pamela Moore by Pamela Moore. But when I look now, it's not on the approved list, and it doesn't have the genre on the main page. Was I dreaming?

I came across that earlier today. It is actually here: Genre Verification Thread . Hope that helps.

Sandi Barnes | 512 comments Book Concierge,

That book has been noted as having the GLBT genre in the Spring 2014 Genre verification thread here . . . https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Thanks for the help, Rebecca NJ and Sandi!

Book Concierge, they're right. That book was approved in the Genre Verification thread so it's good. So is The Year of Ice. I'll add that one to post 2 of this thread so if the genre disappears like it did on Chocolates for Breakfast, you're still covered.

message 50: by Shelby (new)

Shelby (stang_lee) | 449 comments I have a question Kristi, and feel free to tell me no, I'm sure if I dig far enough one of the MM books I read will actually have the GLBT designation. But the one I was thinking of using doesn't have the genre on the main page, but it does have the MM Romance Genre there. It is essentially a sub category of GLBT, but it still may not work for this challenge.

I was thinking of Billy's Bones.

Please just let me know. Thanks!
