★ Tourism is, of course, one of the most important contributor to the Egyptian economy, employing approximately 12% of the workforce.
You may also read a book that's part of a trilogy or a 7-book series; a book that is set in or around bodies of water (oceans, cruises, pirate abductions); or a book where travel is part of the plot.

4. Name Yourself Day (April 9): Have you ever wanted a different name? Was yours the source of many a taunt in school yards? Or did you ever find a name you just absolutely loved? This day is your day! Read a book by an author whose first or last name you wouldn't mind borrowing for a day.

5. National Sibling Day (April 10): Celebrate siblinghood by reading a book where siblings play a prominent role in the story. Or read a book that's part of a series featuring siblings.

6. Eight-Track Tape Day (April 11): The good ol' days before DVDs, CDs, cassette tapes, and (gasp) ebook readers. Read any book first published in the 1980s or any year ending in 8 (1978, 1998, 2008, etc).

7. Blah, Blah, Blah Day (April 17): The target for today is tackle all those jobs you've been putting off forever. Read a book that's been gathering major dust bunnies on your TBR.

8. World Penguin Day (April 25): Flightless or not, some consider these animals as absolutely adorbs. Read a book with a cover that is predominantly white and/or black.

9.National Welding Month: We love all those billionaires, but even regular Joes need love, too. Read a book with a blue-collar main character (auto mechanics, ranchers, firefighters, beat cops, bikers, etc.). No desk jockeys allowed!

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

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

2. Member of the Month - Nadine: Nadine has been a member of RRRC since January 2013. Here is a link to Nadine's shelves. Please read a book from any of Nadine's shelves, a book published in 2013, or a book published in January of any year.

3. Geography - Egypt: Read a book whose author, character, or setting is from Egypt.
Fun Facts About Egypt:
★ The Pyramids of Giza consist of three major pyramid complexes and is considered one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.
★ Egypt controls the Suez Canal, one of the most traversed navigable waterways in the world.
★ Tourism is, of course, one of the most important contributor to the Egyptian economy, employing approximately 12% of the workforce.
You may also read a book that's part of a trilogy or a 7-book series; a book that is set in or around bodies of water (oceans, cruises, pirate abductions); or a book where travel is part of the plot.

4. Name Yourself Day (April 9): Have you ever wanted a different name? Was yours the source of many a taunt in school yards? Or did you ever find a name you just absolutely loved? This day is your day! Read a book by an author whose first or last name you wouldn't mind borrowing for a day.

5. National Sibling Day (April 10): Celebrate siblinghood by reading a book where siblings play a prominent role in the story. Or read a book that's part of a series featuring siblings.

6. Eight-Track Tape Day (April 11): The good ol' days before DVDs, CDs, cassette tapes, and (gasp) ebook readers. Read any book first published in the 1980s or any year ending in 8 (1978, 1998, 2008, etc).

7. Blah, Blah, Blah Day (April 17): The target for today is tackle all those jobs you've been putting off forever. Read a book that's been gathering major dust bunnies on your TBR.

8. World Penguin Day (April 25): Flightless or not, some consider these animals as absolutely adorbs. Read a book with a cover that is predominantly white and/or black.

9.National Welding Month: We love all those billionaires, but even regular Joes need love, too. Read a book with a blue-collar main character (auto mechanics, ranchers, firefighters, beat cops, bikers, etc.). No desk jockeys allowed!

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