The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches your letter and the category.

This “Challenge” works in conjunction with the other challenges you may participate in this month. You may use a book to fulfill multiple items (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!) While you are fulfilling the requirements of your other challenges, be on the lookout for the following items (they may be on the cover or mentioned in the book):

The Challenge: I will post a list of 12 categories, 6 general relating to any book, and 6 specific to that month. On the last day of the month before, I will post the letter of the month. You can start reading on the 1st. The goal is to get as many points as possible by the end of the month.

Duration: February 1st to February 28th

Rules:
1.Any genre of books will work
2.Ebooks and audio count
3.You can read in any order
4.Rereads are ok but if you really reread the book

Points: You get one point for each category you can tie to a book, where the first letter begins with the letter of the month. You get double points for each time the letter of the month is used to begin a word (ex. for author if the letter was C, Cassandra Claire would be 2 points). We will not be deducting points for duplicate answers like the original game version does.

…..Note….. if you have already earned 1 point for an item and come across another item worth more points you can replace it. Please only list the one book that you are currently using for points.

Special categories are open for interpretation. As long as it is mentioned in the book and you can justify how it fits, it will work.

When you find one of the items list the Book Title and Author (or link the cover), date it, and specify where the item is found within the book. (i.e. page number, e-reader location, audio chapter)

Just like the regular game we will not use the letters Q, U, V, X, Y and Z.

Let me know if you have any questions.

February is month number two. February 6 is "National Wear Red Day", which aims to raise awareness of heart disease in women. February is still the smallest month. February 2nd is Groundhogs Day; groundhogs are an odd little animal. The February flower is the violet and the stone is the amethyst which are both shades of purple. And last but not least February is most known for Valentine’s Day filled with all sorts of romantic things.

Missyb | 127 comments I just finished a beta read Wednesday 2/11. Can I use it for this? It has a few of the catagories in it. Ex.: it takes place in Phoenix, they use a purple sage flower on their weapons & 2 or 3 others. The book was 200 pages.

8. Red: “You’ve done brilliantly,” says Paul, who seems to believe in the power of motivation and isn’t letting the fact that he is talking to a bright red, puffing, sodden lump put him off.
Jemima J by Jane Green - ***** - 2/18/2015 - Page 138

9. Small: "She blanches slightly at the price, but then it’s a small price to pay for being thin, and this gym is so close she won’t have any excuse not to go, so with pen in hand she starts ticking the boxes."

10. Animal: "Such animals as you have never seen, striped horses, great spotted things with necks as long as stilts, hairy mouse-pigs as big as cows, stinging manticores, tigers that carry their cubs in a pouch."
