reading the seasons

Read books for each task listed. Some (but not all) tasks will have opportunities to collect bonus points.

You can read one book for every task or read multiple books for some tasks. (For example - you could choose to just focus on task 5 and read books with summer covers. That's fine - you can claim points for each one that fits).

RULES
*Each book may only be used for one task.
*For each book that you read, please post a link to the book, the author and the date you finished it.
*To count a book towards a challenge you must read the majority of it after the challenge start date.
* Where more than one option is given for a task, please state which option your book relates to.
*If the task relates to the cover of your book, please post the cover.
*All genres and formats are fine.
*Re-reads are allowed.
*No page minimum.

*When you have finished please re-post your whole challenge as a new message or we will not be able to award your Hall of Fame badge!

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible by the end of the quarter.

SCORING:
Score 1 point for each book read that fits a task plus 2 points for each bonus task.

EXAMPLE:
TASK: Read a book set in USA (Bonus: set in one of the 'Thirteen Colonies')

You read a book set in California = 1 point for USA : Total 1 point

You read a book set in Delaware = 1 point for USA + 2 points for Delaware: Total 3 points

Please keep a record of your points total at the top of your post.
