February M-o-M Challenge – Book Concierge (Tessa)
Begins: 01Feb17 / Ends: 28Feb17

Our January M.o.M. (Member of the Month) was Book Concierge (Tessa). So this challenge is based on the information she shared about herself.

1. She was in the Army Reserves - read a book with a member of the military (any service branch, any country, war or peace time)

2. Tessa loves Christmas - What's your favorite holiday?

3. Her favorite color is RED; she loves to wear red - Cover image includes an article of clothing that is RED (post the cover)

4. Three of Tessa's favorite authors are Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver and Edith Wharton - Have you read any books by these authors? And what did you think?

5. Her dream vacation destination is Africa - Read a book set in Africa.

---------------------------------------------------------

Rules of the challenge
Books must be at least 100 pages in length
Re-reads are fine, as long as you actually read the entire book
Book should be finished within the time-frame of the challenge.
Any format ("dead tree," e-book, audio...) is fine.

If you want acknowledgement that you have completed the challenge you MUST include the date you finished reading each book.

As always, have fun!

2/5

1. She was in the Army Reserves - read a book with a member of the military (any service branch, any country, war or peace time)

I read one Stephen King, THE COLORADO KID The Colorado Kid by Stephen King . I liked it but it was not his typical book. It was about an urban legend. I have not read Barbara Kingsolver. I have read Edith Wharton but I can never seem to finish her books. I get so mad at the characters.
