Your challenge is to find the following words/phrases in the TEXT of the books you are reading this month.

You are NOT restricted to one book / one word; you may find as many of the words/phrases in a single book as you like. If you find all the words in one book you are really lucky!

This month's basic scavenger list is inspired by summer activities - summer camp, Canada Day & 4th of July celebrations

BASIC Scavenger List
archery
barbecue
best friends
bonfire
cabin
fireworks
flag
hike
independence
maple
mosquito
pen pal
shorts
swimsuit
tent

BONUS
Argentina
bathing cap
ostrich
revolver
salsa




Unless a variation is specified above, words must match exactly - although I will accept a plural/singular version. But that is the ONLY deviation allowed. So if you are looking for "daddy" - I will NOT allow "father", "Pops" or "dad".

You MUST finish the book before you can claim credit for finding the word/phrase.

Report as follows:
Word - Title of book - date finished - page # where you found the text - QUOTE
E.g.
1. Chandelier – A Prayer for Owen Meany ✔ – 10Jan16 – pg 297 – “…looking at the chandelier, …”

Have fun!
