Bonus Scavenger Hunt: September 1 - October 31

Most items are pretty general, but some are specific. If in doubt about an item – just ask! I try to be pretty flexible on most of these since I want everyone to have fun. They may be on the cover or mentioned in the book.

The Rules:
• List the sentence in which the word (or phrase) is found and its location in the book.
• You may use a book (or even a single sentence) to fulfill multiple items (you do not have to read separate 40 books for this challenge!)
• Books that are used must be read during the period of this challenge.

The list*
Apple
Barn
Blur
Candles
Candy
Cinnamon
Coffee with cream
Community
Crabby
Creep
Descend
Dorm
Fire pit
Flannel
Flashlight
Football
Fraternity or sorority
Futon

Orange article of clothing
Resume

Rocky
Sanitize
Sapphire
Scale
School bus
Section
Shower Curtain
Sunflower
Table lamp
Toilet paper

*Note: If you have not completed the previous months words - never fear! I never close these out. It will remain in the scavenger hunt folder for a while, but will get moved to the Scavenger Hunt Archives after a few months.

Suzanne (esmerelda1) | 1464 comments The Challenge Factory
TCF September/October 2020 Bonus Scavenger Hunt
Duration:
September 1 - October 31

Progress: 35 out of 40

Most items are pretty general, but some are specific. If in doubt about an item – just ask! I try to be pretty flexible on most of these since I want everyone to have fun. They may be on the cover or mentioned in the book.

The Rules:
• List the sentence in which the word (or phrase) is found and its location in the book.
• You may use a book (or even a single sentence) to fulfill multiple items (you do not have to read separate 40 books for this challenge!)
• Books that are used must be read during the period of this challenge.
