description

You may not be aware, but each month as I set up the TCF Monthly, I would add in a word that had been chosen from a dictionary website's Word of the Month list. When Book Concierge suggested that we split the Spell Out Section of the TCF Monthly out into it's own challenge, and many folks began voting for it, I decided to pull those dictionary words out of the monthly spell out list and make them their own challenge. Many thanks go out to Book Concierge for her suggestion!

How It Works:
★This will be a spell out challenge only, so pick your level, then pick your books.
★Spell out the listed words using Title (First letter of first word in the title only, but check the Do Not Count list below for exceptions!), Author Name (First and last only, no middle initials or names (unless noted)!), or Series Name (First letter of first word in the series name only, but check the Do Not Count list below for exceptions!). If using series name, be sure to add it next to your entry!! (Example: S-Loving Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #3) by Katy Regnery)
★When using titles for letters, the words A, And, An, and The do not count.
Books read can be used for only one letter in one word! NO DUPLICATING BOOKS OVER MULTIPLE WORDS!!
★Books must be read from December 1st to December 31st
★Re-reads are allowed, but all books must be at least 50 pages in length!
★You CAN change your Books at any time during the challenge.
★ Dictionary websites used can be found HERE and HERE, however, you are not allowed to use a word from those sites that is not listed in this challenge!!

Some Info to Keep In Mind:
♦Keep your original post updated and give a shout out in the thread when you're all done! Please do not make a separate post with your finished challenge, edit your original comment! This is so I can keep accurate track of participation. You can make an announcement post like "Finished in comment #2!", so I know where to find your completed challenge to congratulate you! Duplicate posts will be deleted!
♦Mark books as finished by adding the date finished next to the book listed and either striking them out using the "< s> < /s>" HTML commands (without the spaces) or by copying and pasting a checkmark: ✔ ✓
♦Add a tally of completed books to your Original Post= 0/5 completed!

See my post for examples and if you have questions, PLEASE ask me here, or PM me!

Sadly, this is one of the ones being retired at the end of the month, in order to make room for Foreman Lanelle's Spelling Songs challenge. I hope you'll consider participating in her challenge to meet your spell out needs!

Unfortunately not, Tiffany. This was too similar to Foreman Lanelle's upcoming Spelling Songs challenge, so in an effort to support her challenges, I decided to retire this one. The E-Reader challenge I run also has a spell out option, if you're interested in doing spell outs, but I've been pointing members toward the Spelling Songs challenge as the replacement for this one. Thanks for your interest!
