Nope. each line is a category- so try to read books that are
-writen by a female, or has a red cover, or starts with "f", etc.

you can pick and choose as many of the categories as you wish. It's just a fun challenge!

As you finish a category, you can cross it out and list the book that you'd read that completes that category. Hope this helps! =)

message 25: by Karen (new)

Karen GoatKeeper (goodreadscomkaren_goatkeeper) | 100 comments The two books by Marguerite Henry were fun to read especially so since I do like horses.
However, now I'm serious about this month's challenge: "Pride and Prejudice." It's got a pink cover, is a love story, a romance and was written by a woman.
Gardening season is beginning, kids are due next month so it's nice to fit into more than one category since reading time will soon shrink for the summer.

message 27: by Karen (new)

Karen GoatKeeper (goodreadscomkaren_goatkeeper) | 100 comments I just finished "Pride and Prejudice" which is definitely a February romance type novel. The writing is superb. It overcomes a mostly dull plot and makes the book an interesting read.
