Welcome to one of the monthly challenges here at The Challenge Factory. Each month we’re going to pick a different celebration theme and then you can read any books that you think fit that theme. Below are some examples of what I would do for the month’s theme, but you can interpret this any way you like.

November Celebration Theme: Thanksgiving

• Books that take place during or around Thanksgiving
• Books/Authors that you are thankful for
• Books featuring football
• Books published in November
• Read books to spell out Thanksgiving or your favorite thing about Thanksgiving (ie: family, parade, turkey, etc)

Use your imagination and have fun! Happy Reading!!

message 14: by Paris (new)

Paris (pah13) | 4285 comments When spelling out anything, you can use author name (first, middle or last), book name or series name. And if you really can't find a book that fits using one of those and you are desperate you can use main character names (first, middle or last).
