March M-o-M Challenge – Diana S
Begins: 01March16 / Ends: 31March16


.
Diana S was our February M.o.M. (Member of the Month). So this challenge is based on the information she shared about herself.

1. Diana’s favorite genres are Magical Realism, Historical Fiction and Paranormal. Read a book with one of these genres on the main page.

2. She is “semi-retired” and does a lot of volunteer work. Do you volunteer in your community? How?

3. Diana’s favorite place to read is in her truck. Read a book with a truck on the cover. (Preferred image is a pick-up truck, but we’ll accept a delivery truck, semi-trailer, etc ….. NO cars or buses, though.)

4. Last month’s MoM is very creative! Diana enjoys crochet, needlepoint and cross stitch. She also hand makes cards and tray favors for the meals on wheels Thanksgiving distribution. And she bakes cookies & breads to give as gifts. Do you do any of these things?

5. If she could throw a party, she’d throw a “soup party.” Read a book whose author’s first AND last initials are in S O U P P A R T Y (Letters can be used only as often as they appear in the phrase … so you can have two P’s but only one “A”)

---------------------------------------------------------

Rules of the challenge
Books must be at least 100 pages in length
Re-reads are fine, as long as you actually read the entire book
Book should be finished within the time-frame of the challenge.
Any format ("dead tree," e-book, audio...) is fine.

As always, have fun!
