Damini I think some of you are already familiar with this challenge, for those who are new to the concept, here is how it works.

The Procedure~
These challenges spell out a word. Then for each letter read books with titles, series names, authors (first or last names) that begin with letters that correspond to the word you choose. Some challenges allow you to use characters (first or last names), too. You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.)

It is nice if you indicate near the top what your goal is and how many books you've read, even if it is as simple as the example below. (Three books read out of a goal of four.)

Some people also use check-marks to show they've read the book. Some people indicate their star rating. Most at least add dates and it is nice to add a bookcover link, too.

Example of Spell It Out Challenge~

Suppose you're spelling out the word June:

3/4

J. - ✔ The Jewel of Seven Stars (Title) 1/23/13
U. - ✔ Unsettled (Title) 3/5/13
N. - ✔ The Collected Papers of Nevill Coghill: Shakespearian & Medievalist by Nevill Coghill (Authors first name) 6/26/13
E. - Edward from Twilight series (Character's first name)


So this is how it works.

What do we do here?
Here, we'll specify a subject/topic each month which you'll have to use for this challenge.

For example, the topic for August will be Genre of books. You can choose any genre of book, whichever you like, and spell it out during the course of this month in order to take part and finish the challenge.

Hope its all clear to you. Take part and have fun. :) For any queries, you can ask here.

!!~Monthly Topics~!!
