DHASG December Challenge

Introduction: December is here! It's the last month of 2018 and our last challenge of the year. Thank you so much for participating in our monthly challenges this year. Let's celebrate December and the holiday season together with our book reading. Happy Holidays.

Rules:

2. Sign up at any time during the month, but books must be read between December 1st and December 31st, 2018. Post when you sign up and update your progress regularly and when you finish.
3. Rereads are fine. Reads can overlap with other challenges on the group, but a book can only count once in this challenge.
3. In your stats, write your level, include book name, author, date read, and how it fits the particular challenge point.
4.Have fun!

Levels:

2. Eight Series Glomming: Read 5-8 books.
3. Four Book All-Nighters: Read 3-4 books.

Categories
:

1.Santa's Nice and Naughty List: Santa's making a list and checking it twice. He knows who's been naughty or nice. Read a book with a character who is either on Santa's Nice or Naughty List.
2.Party Like It's 2018!: This time of year, offices are rolling out their holiday parties, and plenty of folks are doing their home ones too. Read a book that features a rollicking party or celebration.
3.Poinsettia Day: December 12th is Poinsettia Day. Read a book that represents a fact or attribute of this beautiful holiday-associated plant. Information on poinsettias: http://extension.illinois.edu/poinset...
4.Make Up Your Mind: December 31st is the day to be decisive. For those who have had trouble making a decision, here's the day to do it. Read a book that features a character who needs to make up their mind about something.
5.Happy Whatever You Celebrate: Festivus is December 23rd, a day set aside for people who don't celebrate the typical winter holidays this time of year. Read a book with a character who celebrates a holiday other than the usual winter holidays.
6.National Ding-a-Ling Day: December 12th is a day to go outside the book, in other words 'ring your bell.' Read a book where a character does exactly that.
7.Look on the Brightside: Related to Winter Solstice Day, the shortest day of the year, use December 21st to be optimistic and think positive. Read a book that encourages positivity or features a character who has to think or be positive.
8.Ourstory: For Forefather's Day and Roots Day, Read a book that celebrates your personal history, whether it's your culture, origins or heritage.
9.Make Your Own Luck: Instead of celebrating unluck (December 31st), lets encourage the idea that we can make our own luck. In other words, read a book with a character that turns bad circumstances around for their own good.
10.Celebrate Food!: This month has lots of food holidays. Read a book that relates to the theme of yummy, delicious food. Maybe the lead character is a foodie, baker, or chef. See what your reading brings you.
11. Dear _______,: For December 7th, Letter Writing Day, read a book that involves some form of written correspondence within its narrative, be it letters, emails, or texts (or even tweets). Here's a list of epistolary fiction works, but you're welcome to use any books you want. https://bookriot.com/2016/08/24/100-e...
12.An Apple a Day..: December 1st is Eat a Red Apple Day. Celebrate red apples in particular. You could read a book with a red cover, one that has an apple on it (must be a red apple), or even in the story, such as Snow White, or get metaphorical, like apples being 'forbidden fruit.'
Bonus. White Elephant Gift Exchange: Take a wrapped gift and read it for the bonus challenge. Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, Channukah, Kwanzaa, Bathtub Party Day, Crossword Puzzle Day, Human Rights Day.
