The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches the letter and the category.


The object of this challenge is the same sort of thing as the board game. We give you a list of 12 categories/words and a letter and you find items that fit those categories in your books. The goal is to find all 12 items. You may use a book to fulfill as many categories as it fits (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!)

The first 6 categories will stay the same, the second 6 will be announced each month.


Please remember to add a link to the book, the author and give the date you finished reading it.
You also need to post the sentence and page/loc# for items 7-12.

Sorry, Ferenc, I did not see your post. You've been added. :)

That's the one thing I don't like about GR - when you are linking people and someone posts, you don't know about it because you are in that thread. It gets me every once in awhile!
