Welcome to a new monthly challenge here at The Challenge Factory. Each month we’re going to pick a different celebration theme and then you can read any books that you think fit that theme. Below are some examples of what I would do for the month’s theme, but you can interpret this any way you like.

August Celebration Theme: Birthday

• Books you got for your birthday
• Things you want for your birthday (hot guy on cover, book boyfriend, vacation to where book is set)
• Books published in the month/year of your birthday
• Books set in the decade you were born
• Read books to spell out your birth month.

Use your imagination and have fun! Happy Reading!!
