May 2018 Challenge - Miscellaneous May
Begins: 01May18 / Ends: 31May18


Not celebrating anything specific this month. (Your moderator / challenge creator is on the road and forgot to research ...)

Tasks:

1. Read a book with a Pastel colored cover

2. Read a book whose author's first name begins with a letter in M A Y

3. Read a book with a '5' in the total page count

4. FIRST published in MAY (any year)

5. Flowers on cover


---------------------------------------------------------

Rules of the challenge
*Books must be at least 100 pages in length
*Page counts are taken from the Goodreads record.
*A book counts for only ONE task per challenge (but feel free to use it for other challenges ... in the past or in another group).
*Re-reads are fine, as long as you actually read the entire book.
*Book should be finished within the time-frame of the challenge.
*Any format ("dead tree," e-book, audio...) is fine.

If you want acknowledgement that you have completed the challenge you MUST include the date you finished reading each book.

You should edit your original post to include the book (and/or cover) for each task. When you are finished, be sure to post a new message alerting me that you've completed the challenge. I do not get any notification when you edit your original post.

As always, have fun!
