The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches your letter and the category.

This “Challenge” works in conjunction with the other challenges you may participate in this month. You may use a book to fulfill multiple items (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!) While you are fulfilling the requirements of your other challenges, be on the lookout for the following items (they may be on the cover or mentioned in the book):

The Challenge: I will post a list of 12 categories, 6 general relating to any book, and 6 specific to that month. On the last day of the month before, I will post the letter of the month. You can start reading on the 1st. The goal is to get as many points as possible by the end of the month.

July is the 7th month of the Gregorian Calendar. It is on average the warmest month in most of the Northern hemisphere (where it is the second month of summer) and, the opposite, or the coldest month in much of the Southern hemisphere (where it is the second month of winter). It is National Ice Cream Month . Shark Week is July 5-12. Will it be safe to go into the water? International Free Hugs Day is celebrated on the second of July. Several countries celebrate National Tree Day in July. Also, many countries celebrate their Independence day in July, with flags flying.
