description

As you may or may not know, I consider myself a gamer. When I found out about this holiday, I knew I had to do it for a challenge! Did you know that March 10 is Mario Day? Written in abbreviated form, this date reads Mar. 10. Or, as it appeared to a Mr. Mario Fascitelli: MARIO. Fascitelli decided this quirk of the calendar was deserving of a holiday for people to celebrate the Marios in their lives. My first thought was of Mario of Donkey Kong/Mario Brothers fame!

Levels:
Goomba: 1-3 books
Koopa Troopa: 4-6 books
Hammer Brother: 7-9 books
Koopa Kid: 10+ books

How To:
You can choose to do the Short History portion, the Spell-Out portion, or Mix and Match them as you see fit. You can use the Title or Initials of the Author's Name to match your spell out option. Re-Reads are allowed, and there is no minimum page requirement

Short History:
The first Mario Brothers game was published in 1983: Read a book that is third in a series, 33rd in a series, or has three in the title

Mario was originally known as Jumpman until Italian-American landlord, Mario Segale, had barged in on Nintendo of America's staff to demand rent, and they decided to name Jumpman after him: Read a book where someone is a landlord, rents an apartment, or has Italian heritage

In the first game, Mario is portrayed as an Italian-American plumber who, along with his younger brother Luigi, has to defeat creatures that have been coming from the sewers below New York City: Read a book with a plumber hero or that is set in New York City

In 1985, there was a sequel released: Super Mario Brothers. The setting changes to the Mushroom Kingdom where you still play as Mario (or Luigi in two player mode), but have to rescue Princess Toadstool from Bowser: Read a book where a character has to rescue another person or animal

In 1990, Mario switched from being a plumber to being a Doctor in the game Dr. Mario: Read a book where someone switches professions or is a doctor

Also in 1990, the character of Yoshi was introduced to be a sidekick to Mario and Luigi: Read a book where a secondary character has to tag along on a trip the main characters are taking

In 1992, the character of Wario was introduced into the games as the final boss and main antagonist. He is thought to be a rival of Mario and Luigi’s and jealous of their success: Read a book where a character has a rival or is jealous of someone else.
