1. March: Read a book which title starts with "M."

2. Birthday: Read a book from a March B-day celebrant.

4. St.Patrick's Day Irish Theme: Read a book that has a predominantly green cover or has anything related to Ireland (plot, cover, character, etc)

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) Really not happy we have to choose a book off the list for #9 since I don't like anything on the list since I don't agree with what they've chosen. Yeah, I know, I don't have to complete all 10 categories but I try to every month.
