DHASG January Challenge

Introduction: Welcome to the first challenge of 2018! It's our chance to ring in our New Year with some great reading. If you're a newbie to our challenges or a veteran, we're happy to have you join us.

Rules:


1. Any DHASG member can participate in the challenge.
2. Books must be read between January 1st and January 31st.
3. A book may only be used once in the challenge.
4. Please sign up and list your stats or link to the completed stats listing when you finish the challenge.
5. In your stats, include book title, author, date read, and how it represents the specific part of the challenge.
6. Enjoy and happy reading!

Levels:

1. Best Intentions: Read 9-12 books.
2. Bright and Shiny: Read 5-8 books.
3. Starting Over: Read 3-4 books.

Categories:


1. Happy New Year!: The 1st day of January is an international holiday to celebrate the dawn of a new year. Use the concept of starting over for this part of the challenge.
2.Dear John: The 2nd week of January is Letter Writing Week. To celebrate, read a book that contains characters who write or receive letters during the course of the book. Even better if that is the main concept of the book.
3.Festival of Sleep: This grandly restive day falls on January 3rd. It is dedicated to celebrating sleeping or napping. Read a book that involves the concept of sleep, such as an old favorite like "Sleeping Beauty" or a character who can walk through other people's dreams or who can put others to sleep via their abilities.
4.Trivia Day: This day falls on January 4th, a day to enjoy learning and sharing trivia. Read a book that exposures you to some aspect of trivia you didn't know previously or is built around the concept of some obscure element of trivia.
5.Cuddle Up Day: January 6th is the opportunity to enjoy cuddling up with someone, with a pet, under a warm blanket, with a book. Read a book that has a cover with a person cuddling up, has a teddy bear or a comfy chair. You could also use a book that has a scene with a lead character cuddling, preferably with a loved one.
6.We Three Kings: The Feast of the Epiphany falls on January 6th, a day that celebrates the three wise men who traveled to meet the Christ child. It's celebrated in Latin America and other parts of the world. For this challenge, read a book with a prominent character who is a king, or a wise man (could be queen or wise person), or who goes on a journey of discovery.
7.MLK: Dr. Martin Luther King Junior was a civil rights leader whose life work was fighting for the equal rights of all people and building bridges among people for the betterment of all. His birthday falls on the 3rd Monday of January. Celebrate this man's life and work by reading a book that represents some of the concepts he fought for.
8.Say No to New Years' Resolutions Day!: On January 17th, people are free not to pursue their New Year's Resolutions. Read a book that shows the opposite of a typical resolution that people make for the New Year.
9.Thesaurus Day: January 18th is the birthday of the founder of the first Thesaurus, Peter Roget. A book that lists synonyms for words is invaluable to writers and students. Read a book that has a unique or less common word in its title or has a word you didn't know prior to reading the book. You could also read a book about a writer.
10.National Hobby Month: January is National Hobby Month. Read a book where the character has an interesting hobby and it's a prominent focus of the storyline.
11.This is Not a Holiday Day: January 16th is Nothing Day. To celebrate it, you can count any book you read on that day.
12.You Make My Dreams Come True: January 13th is a day to realize your dreams. Read a book where a prominent character does exactly that.
