Option 2=Find the words in the title of a book
Example- I'm going to read the book The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan as it has the word "Lightning" in the title.

1.

Option 3= Use the words above (or your own) and find them as objects on your book covers.
Example- I'm going to read the book The Lovely Bones Alice Sebold (English Edition) by Editorial Atlantic because there are clouds on the cover.

S Glynn (sgpeters) So, I'm confused. How is it so many members already have loads of books on their lists when it's only the 3rd of the month? Aren't these challenges supposed to reflect what you read during the time of the challenge, not before it starts?
