Some Roman authors thought that Aprilis was related to the Latin verb aperire meaning "to open," because April "opened" the buds of leaves and flowers. A more likely theory is that the name was based on Apru, an Etruscan form of the name of the Greek goddess Aphrodite.

The Challenge:

To focus on "open" we challenge you to: Read crime, mystery and thrillers that are somehow related to open. The book could open with the description of the crime, have "open" in the title, or to solve the mystery something must be opened, etc.


To focus on "love" we challenge you to: Read crime, mystery, and thrillers that are somehow related to love. The book could have "love" in the title, love could have been the motive for the crime, a detective/lawyers or other main character could fall in love with the suspect, etc.
