The How To's:

There will be a list of questions for the EOTM to answer about themselves. Each month there will be a challenge based on their answers. There's no limits to how many books you read for the challenge and you have been challenged to use your creativity for this one :)

So for example if the EOTM lives in Florida you could read a book set in Florida or you could read an author that has the same name as the EOTM, etc.

Duration:
5/1/14 - 5/31/14

I know this may not be on your starter plan, but if you don't mind inspirational romances, there are a couple of Love Finds You books set in Florida: Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida and Love Finds You in Holiday, Florida. I just finished the Treasure Island one, it was decent.
