COLORS COUNT
DURATION: 1 Year

According to Wikipedia, there are 133 different Crayola crayon colors, and they come in many different sized packs.

Please post a link to the title of the book along with the date you finished reading. You may update your original post as you work on the challenge, but please also copy your update and post it as a new message in the challenge thread, as this will make it easier for me to keep track of your progress. This is especially important when you complete the challenge, so we can all give you a virtual pat on the back for a job well done.


BASIC 8-PACK: any color names you choose, at least 20 letters total

EXPANDED 24-PACK: any color names you choose, at least 40 letters total

JUMBO 64-PACK: any color names you choose, at least 60 letters total

SUPER-SIZE 120-PACK: any color names you choose, at least 80 letters total

SPECIAL NOTE: There are six colors whose names have multiple Zs in them. If you choose one of these colors, any Zs AFTER THE FIRST ONE can be used as wild cards, but only in ONE color name. If you choose more than one name with multiple Zs, you will need to find Zs for the other names. If you absolutely cannot find a title or author whose name begins with Z, after the first Z, you may use a title or author’s first/last name that contains the letter Z instead. The first Z must be either the first letter of the book’s title or the author’s first/last name.
