DHASG November Challenge

Introduction: The eleventh month of the year has arrived. Fall nights have us bundling up and we are enjoying our hot drinks on cool days. It's a time to be thankful and to start getting ready for the holidays. Thanks for celebrating November with our monthly challenge.


Rules:

1. Books must be read between the 1st and 30th of November.
2. A book can only be used once in the challenge.
3. Any DHASG member can participate in the challenge.
4. Enjoy the month of November and your reading.

Levels:

1. Cornucopia: Read 9-11 books.
2. Bucketful of Leaves: Read 5-8 books.
3. Cozy Reading Weather: Read 3-4 books.

Categories


1. Writer Love: In honor of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), let's celebrate writers, established and unpublished. Read a book by your favorite author, a newbie author, or a book that has a character who is a writer of any kind.

2. Be Thankful!: In the United States, we celebrate Thanksgiving this month. Give thanks for good reading by taking the time to read a good book. Any book you want will count for this.

3.Sadie Hawkins Day: As created in the Lil Abner cartoon by Al Capp, this day on November 13th is the day when the ladies chase their men, and if they catch them, he has to marry her. Read a book where the heroine does all or most of the chasing.

4.Semper Fi: November 10th celebrates the birth of the United States Marine Corps. Let's give honor to the Marines by reading a book with the character who is a currently active or retired Marine.

5.Young Readers Day: November 14th is in honor of young readers. But heck, we're all young at heart. Read a young adult, children's or middle grade/juvenile book or read a book with a younger main character. You can even reread one of your favorite books from your childhood or a celebrated children's book.

6.Chaos Never Dies: Believe it or not, November 9th is Chaos Never Dies Day. Not something we'd celebrate, per se, but a day to acknowledge how chaotic our lives can seem. Let's use this challenge to deal with chaos in some small way. You could clean up your chaotic reading list by reading a book that's been on the pile for a while, or even read a book where the character(s) bring order to a very disordered world in which they live.

7.Absurdity Day: November 20th celebrates the illogical and senseless. Read a book that veers into the absurd, illogical, and senseless, in whatever way you choose.

8.Buy Nothing Day!: Instead of going out into the madness of Black Friday, how about you Buy Nothing! Stay at home and read a book you already own. It can be a library book, but the catch is it has to be a book you did not purchase anytime in the last six months.

9.On Pins and Needles: November 27th is a day with roots in the pro-Labor party of the early 20th century, but nowadays this day also represents waiting anxiously for something or having less than steady nerves. You can represent this feeling by reading a suspense novel or a thriller, or even an action or horror book (or a romance book with any of the above elements).

10.Lost and Found (Hopefully)!: November 6th is Lost Without a Compass Day. Read a book where the lead character feels lost, either emotionally or spiritually or is actually lost in reality. Let's hope they find their way ultimately. You could also read a book that you've been trying to get a copy of for a long time. Let us know what you choose in parentheses.

11.Look for Circles: Yes, this is a holiday this month on November 2nd. Read a book with a circle of any kind on the cover.

-or-

11.Sandwich Day: November 3rd is the day for our most celebrated of convenient foods, the sandwich. Here is a list of sandwiches, and you may choose one and read a book that represents that sandwich to you in some way. Please explain in parentheses which sandwich you chose and why. List of Sandwiches: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_...

Hey ladies! Congrats on finishing the challenge and taking part. I'm afraid I was caught up with finishing NaNoWriMo, so I didn't have a chance to write the December challenge yet. I will try to get it up either tomorrow night or Tuesday.

I'm very sorry for the delay!
