•This “Challenge” works in conjunction with the other challenges you may participate in during this time frame.

•While you are fulfilling the requirements of your other challenges, be on the lookout for the following items - they may be on the cover or mentioned in the book. Most items are specific, but if in doubt about an item – just ask!

•You may use a book to fulfill multiple items (you do not have to read 50 books for this challenge...do not worry!)

•When you find one of the items, list the Book Title and Author (or link the cover), date it, & rate it. Then specify where the item is found within the book and a blurb from the sentence. For audiobooks try to put the chapter if possible. If not, then at least let us know you got it from an audiobook.

•Books that are used must be read during the period of this challenge, the challenge does not start until 4/1/18, but you can get your lists together early.

Good Luck & Happy Reading! ☺

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 2345 comments QUESTION - fancy coffee drink:

Will you take"Cappucino" or "latte" by itself? Or does this have to be in combination to qualify as fancy?


message 13: by ~Michelle~ (new)

~Michelle~ (mlundy5) Two questions:


1. Home pregnancy test - A character buys an EPT at the drugstore. Is that OK or does it have to say the exact words?

2. Mobile home - Would you accept 'double wide'?
