July 2018 Scavenger Hunt
Begins: 01July18 / Ends: 31July18


.

Your challenge is to find the following words/phrases in the TEXT of the books you are reading this month.

You are NOT restricted to one book / one word; you may find as many of the words/phrases in a single book as you like. If you find all the words in one book you are really lucky!

This month's scavenger list are words that were found in
Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
NOTE - you may NOT use this book for the scavenger hunt!


BASIC word list
awkward
brilliant
dentures
elaborate
fried eggs (full phrase)
girth
hose
jury
kerosene
lightbulb
nuisance
pebbles
radiator
tractor
zucchini

BONUS / OPTIONAL words
argyle
death penalty (full phrase)
hemlock
Purple Heart (full phrase)
wax paper (full phrase)




===========================================

Unless a variation is specified above, words must match exactly, with the following exceptions: I will accept a plural/singular version, or differences in spelling between British and American English (e.g. honor or honour). But those are the ONLY deviations allowed. So if you are looking for "vivid" - I will NOT allow "vividly."

All books used must be a minimum of 100 pages long - Page length determined by HARDCOVER 1st edition. If no Hardcover, then the most popular paperback governs page #.

You may read in any format - text, audio or e-book. If using audio or e-book I suggest using Amazon.com's "look inside" feature to get a page number for you quote.

You MUST finish the book before you can claim credit for finding the word/phrase.
