Duration: July 1 - September 30, 2018

Rules: Instead of doing something really different this time round, we're going to keep it the same...all year! Using any of the letters that spell T.H.I.R.D.  Q.U.A.R.T.E.R.L.Y., select one of the four categories found under them: colors, authors, themes, characters, titles, series, settings, or romance sub-genres. You could try doing one of each of these. Note: there are three "R's" and two "T's."

If you want to up the ante, spell something out! You may repeat a letter, if needed, although you’ll need to read a qualifying book.

Levels:
Easy - read 4 books
Medium - read 5-8 books
Hard - read 9-14 books
Harder Still - read 15-20 books!
Pretty Insane - 21 - 40 books!
Pure Insanity - read all 56 (actually 57; there's an extra one for "A")
