Hi Everyone,

The previous seasonal book challenges have been fun and most everyone had success with them. So we have decided to offer this challenge again for Summer/Winter. Just like before, pick a word that makes you think of the season you are in. I know it's Summer in the United States but it's Winter in Australia. So choose the season for wherever you are. Then choose your word - whatever works for you. Then pick books - either by title or author, your choice - that spell out that word. Of course, you can change or even pick the books as you go. Your challenges (if you're doing more than one) can definitely overlap, as well. We want you to have fun with this and talk to each other and us about the books.

This challenge will begin today and go through September 21st. As you complete your books, please update your original post to reflect them.

Have fun!

Sheery, Jonetta and Talya
