May 2018 Scavenger Hunt
Begins: 01May18 / Ends: 31May18


.

Your challenge is to find the following words/phrases in the TEXT of the books you are reading this month.

You are NOT restricted to one book / one word; you may find as many of the words/phrases in a single book as you like. If you find all the words in one book you are really lucky!

This month's scavenger list are words that were found in
Band of Brothers E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Nest by Stephen E. Ambrose Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose
NOTE - you may NOT use this book for the scavenger hunt!


BASIC word list
alcoholic
attack
bodies (must be plural)
casualty
combat
division
evacuated
invasion
lieutenant
machine gun
parachute
radio
sergeant
tank
unique

Optional/BONUS word list
bayonet
foxhole
grizzled
Red Cross
whorehouse


===========================================

Unless a variation is specified above, words must match exactly, with the following exceptions: I will accept a plural/singular version, or differences in spelling between British and American English (e.g. honor or honour). But those are the ONLY deviations allowed. So if you are looking for "vivid" - I will NOT allow "vividly."

All books used must be a minimum of 100 pages long - Page length determined by HARDCOVER 1st edition. If no Hardcover, then the most popular paperback governs page #.

You may read in any format - text, audio or e-book. If using audio or e-book I suggest using Amazon.com's "look inside" feature to get a page number for you quote.

You MUST finish the book before you can claim credit for finding the word/phrase.

Report as follows:
Word - Title of book (please use the add book/author feature to add title) - date finished - page # where you found the text - QUOTE
E.g.
1. Acidic – The Midnight Watch – 07Jan18 – pg 160 – "…through the acidic sludge…"

Have fun!
