The Newly Formatted TCF Monthly Challenge for February

description

With the similarity of both the TCF Monthly and the What’s So Great About …? Challenge, popular vote has decided to merge the challenges! Foreman Trea will now be creating the challenge on a regular basis, so all questions/suggestions/comments should be directed to her! I know this is a rather large challenge, so I will be working to streamline it in the months ahead, and suggestions are appreciated! (Disclaimer: While I do appreciate all suggestions, not all of them will fit my concept for the challenge, and may not be used.)

How It Works:
★Create your own challenge by mix and matching across the various tasks
★Books must be read from February 1st to February 28th
★Re-reads are allowed, but all books must be at least 75 pages in length!
Books read can be used for only one task/letter!
★When using titles in the Spell Out Tasks, the words A, And, An, and The do not count.
★You CAN change your Books at any time during the challenge.

Some Info to Keep In Mind:
♦Keep your original post updated and give a shout out in the thread when you're all done!
♦Mark books as finished by striking them out using the "< s> < /s>" HTML commands (without the spaces) or by copying and pasting a checkmark: ✔ ✓ Feel free to rate your Finished Books 1-5 ♥'s with 5 Being the Best!
♦Add a tally of completed books to your Original Post= 0/5 completed!
If you have questions, Please ask me here, or PM me!

Tasks:
Spell out any of the following words with Title, Author First and Last Name, or Series name. For an additional challenge, if you choose to do a spell out using titles, try using the last word of the title instead of the first to spell your words.

•Valentine •Cupid •Heart •Short •Groundhog •Super Bowl •Violet •Pink •Amethyst •Red •Love •Lincoln •Aquarius •Presidents (Day) •Mardi Gras •Ash Wednesday •Sweetheart •Oscars •Tenderfoot

Don't worry about that, JoAnne! Even reading just 1 book counts for the challenge! This challenge is so large, I think it would take a herculean effort to finish every bit of it! Congrats on your progress on it this month!
