The TCF Monthly Challenge for February

description

I know this is a rather large challenge, so I don't expect anyone to finish all parts of it, rather that you mix and match what you read for the month to it. Remember, this is one LARGE challenge, and shouldn't be viewed as lots of little challenges.

How It Works:
★Create your own challenge by mix and matching across the various tasks, however the challenge is not a series of mini challenges!! It is one large challenge, not one for spell outs and one for Wacky/History tasks!! You can, if you wish, choose to focus on only one part of it, like ONLY doing Spell Outs or ONLY doing the Wacky/History Tasks!
Books read can be used for only one task/letter, regardless of how you choose to participate!
★Books must be read from February 1st to February 28th
★Re-reads are allowed, but all books must be at least 50 pages in length!
★When using titles in the Spell Out Tasks, the words A, And, An, and The do not count.
★You CAN change your Books at any time during the challenge.

Some Info to Keep In Mind:
♦Keep your original post updated and give a shout out in the thread when you're all done! Please do not make a separate post with your finished challenge, edit your original comment! This is so I can keep accurate track of participation. You can make an announcement post like "Finished in comment #2!", so I know where to find your completed challenge to congratulate you! Duplicate posts will be deleted!
♦Mark books as finished by adding the date finished next to the book listed and either striking them out using the "< s> < /s>" HTML commands (without the spaces) or by copying and pasting a checkmark: ✔ ✓ Feel free as well to rate your Finished Books 1-5 ♥'s with 5 Being the Best, however it is not required that you do so!
♦Add a tally of completed books to your Original Post= 0/5 completed!
See my post for examples and if you have questions, PLEASE ask me here, or PM me!

Tasks:
Spell out any of the following words with Title, Author First and Last Name, or Series name. For an additional challenge, if you choose to do a spell out using titles, try using the last word of the title instead of the first to spell your words.

•Valentine •Cupid •Heart •Short •Groundhog •Super Bowl •Violet •Pink •Amethyst •Red •Love •Lincoln •Aquarius •Presidents (Day) •Mardi Gras •Ash Wednesday •Sweetheart •Love •Oscars •Tenderfoot •Dogger •Stubloon
