May 2018 Challenge: I'm a Doctor!



May is a big month for medical professionals! There are no less than three "off the wall" holidays honoring them this month! What better way to pay tribute to them, we thought, than with a challenge!
description
RULES: Choose from the list below, selecting a category more than once, if you desire. Also, there is the Spell-It-Out Option. Or you may do a bit of both!

DURATION:   May 1st - 31st, 2018

LEVELS:
1-2 - Easy
3-5 - Medium
6-9 - Harder
10 or more - Hardest
Categories:
NURSE The first full week in May is Nurses' Week.
        Read a book where a main character is a Nurse.
SCHOOL During Nurses' Week, on that Wednesday, National School Nurse Day is always celebrated.
        Read a book where a child has to visit the school nurse.
HISTORY May 12th is International Nurses' Day, due to the fact that it is Florence Nightingale's birthday. In 1860, she opened the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery, which was the world's first secular nursing school and remains one of the world's oldest schools to be still operational.
        Read a book set in 1860, or where a main character is in nursing school.
COMBAT Florence Nightingale was a combat nurse.
        Read a romance where a character is or was a combat medic for their military team. (Can be medical or Military romance)
AMBULANCE The fourth week of the month is Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week.
        Read a book where a main character is a paramedic or with an ambulance on the cover.
PARAMEDIC EMS Week, was originally authorized by President Gerald Ford on November 4, 1974 for the week of November 3 - 10. In 2017, EMS week was May 21-27.
        Read a book set in November or 1974, a book published in May or 2017, or a book where a character is a politician.
EMS May 20-26, 2018, is the 44th annual National EMS Week.
        Read the fourth book in a series...or 44th, if you're feeling ambitious!

Spell-It-Out: Use a word that reminds you of something about May, or choose one of the words that are listed below, and then spell it out. Read books with titles, series names, authors (first or last name), character (first or last name), that begin with letters that correspond to letters of the word you choose. You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.). Such as:
Doctor, Nurse, Paramedic, Emergency, Patient, Sick, Checkup, Health, Disease, Medicine, etc...

Example of Spell-It-Out: - We used books that are coming out in May, something you do NOT have to do.

S. -Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts
I. - The Ivy Years series #4 - The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowen**
C. - The Cast by Danielle Steel
K. - To the Moon and Back by Karen Kingsbury
