This challenge is a celebration of the number of the month. There will be no levels and no page requirements, and the idea is to mix and match among the prompts for as many as your books will fit. However, a book may only be used for one prompt at a time, not multiple prompts! Duration will be from August 1st to August 31st, 2020.

Your challenge is to read as many books as you can that correspond to these listed prompts. Your sign up post is the post you should keep updated. DO NOT copy your sign up post to announce you are finished with the challenge! Books listed should also have completion dates to count as participating in the challenge! Here are the prompts:

Eighth book in a series
Author's Eighth Book
Eighth Book on your TBR pile
A book published in August 2020
A book published in 2008
The eighth book you purchase in this month
Read a book for the eighth time

JoAnne (joannemwct) | 100 comments If you read a box set with all the books by the same author can an individual title be used for the spellout? The boxed set name is the name of the series but one of the titles starts with I so I was wondering if it's okay to use as the I in the spell out eight?
Thanks

Sure, just link the individual book and not the boxed set.
