Trisha | 31440 comments I thought this week, it might be fun to look back over the previous challenges.

We've been doing this challenge for over 95 weeks! That's a lot of original challenges. So, instead of coming up with a new one, I thought I'd revive some of the older themes and share them. I picked the previous August challenges from 2013.

Your challenge this week is to choose from the below previous Themes - all from last August, Weeks 43 - 46:

Option 1: Week 43 (One Word) by Liza:
The challenge for this week is to read a book with a one word title.

Option 2: Week 44 (Book vs Movie/Media) by Imani:
Well lately I have been watching alot of movies and realized that many of them are based off of books. Whether the book was used as inspiration for a movie , put directly into a movie , or even put on as a play ( for all the classics and Shakespeare plays ) , books are always a great place to start .

Option 3: Week 45 (Vacation Time) by Mehsi:
We are going to read a book where our main character(s) are going on vacation. This can be a roadtrip, or them taking a plane (or other vehicle), but can also mean a vacation gone wrong (alone on an island or something else happening (like murder)).

Option 4: Week 46 (The Blues) by Mandiann:
My challenge is to read a book with a blue cover.


Please Specify which Option you are choosing along with your book choice in your post!

Have fun and happy reading!
