Duration: January 1 - March 31, 2018

Rules: We are doing something really different this time round. Using any of the letters that spell F.I.R.S.T.  Q.U.A.R.T.E.R.L.Y., select one of the four categories found under them: colors, authors, themes, characters, titles, series, settings, or romance sub-genres. You could try doing one of each of these. Note: there are three "R's" and two "T's."

If you want to up the ante, spell something out! You may repeat a letter, if needed, although you’ll need to read a qualifying book.

Levels:
Easy - read 4 books
Medium - read 5-8 books
Hard - read 9-14 books
Harder Still - read 15-20 books!
Pretty Insane - 21 - 40 books!
Pure Insanity - read all 56 (actually 57; there's an extra one for "A")
