Is it February already? Wow, time has flown by so quickly. I’m 9 books in and only managed to get in one Take It or Leave It challenge last month. Many of you have been busy also and it seems our Take It or Leave It Mini Challenge is a hit so far. If this is your first month with us, welcome!



For instructions on how to play for EPIC BRAGGING RIGHTS see our Take It or Leave It Mini Challenge Introduction.

This month’s challenges are:

1. “All the great ones leave their mark. We’re the Wet Bandits!” Home Alone– Read a mystery were a character leaves a calling card.

2. You Devil! – Read a book with the word devil in the title, Devil as the author’s name, or that features a devil or the devil.

3. I love cake! – Read a book whose title contains all the letters found in the word cake but not the actual word cake.

4. You’re the one that I want! – Read a book whose author has the same name as your significant other or crush.

5. The book I’m looking for is red. – Read a book with a red spine.

6. When the cat’s away… - Read a book that features the word mouse in the title, as a character or name of a character, or as part of the plot.

7. Commander and Chief – Read a fiction book with a character who shares a first or last name with the current or a past president of the United States of America. (Double points if the name is both the first and last name of a president.)

In order to get points toward bragging rights and notoriety - post your completed challenges and books by March 3, 2017.

Now that I have finally finished a book I started last month, I can focus on the February challenges. So far:

3. I love Cake!: Josie and Jack by Kelly Braffet
5. Red: The Art of War by Sun Tzu and Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare (I bought these editions and Barnes & Noble that are completely red & gold and really pretty).

Angela | 5 comments Hi Group - late to notify but managed to get through one mini challenge book last month - Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulkner. Never read a James Bond book before, and while not by the original Bond author, it was pretty good. Heading into March mini challenge but this starting work thing is making it a little harder!
