I realize that March has started but I thought it might be fun to do a theme challenge and see what people can come up with.

I didn't want to go with the traditional theme. Drum roll!

March theme is... Read a book with Green on the cover or read a book with "Lucky" in the title.

*Luck, Luckiest can also be used.*

Have fun with this one! As much green or as little green it doesn't matter. Enjoy :)

I know life is crazy and it is hard to fit in so much reading. I understand. I like doing some of these off challenges because it makes you reach for something you normally wouldn't.

Happy Reading!

Karli (goodreadscomkarli_is_booked) Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger - look at all the green in this title! :) I just finished. Guess I have a few weeks to find a Lucky book. (I read Plum Lucky (A Stephanie Plum Between the Numbers/Holiday Novel, #3) by Janet Evanovich last year...does this count? :)

Denise (redreader) | 34 comments fun challenge...I will have to find a book to fit


message 15: by Heather B (new)

Heather B (heatherbenson) How many do we have to read?


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't have a limit. For me I personal strive to have at least two books read for the goals but I always like getting more read. However many you would like to read that fits for the challenge. 1 10 or 20, it just matters that you have fun reading.

I really just make challenges because it makes you at times reach for a book you normal wouldn't read. It forces me to go out of my comfort zone to at least get one book read.

Plus it is always interesting to see what others come up with.

**Carla** Dear John has a grass hill on the cover thats green so i guess that would work!! Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

oh no thats awful!!!! Did you get the lost and found number for the airport you flew into? Usually anything found on the flight while they are cleaning the plane for turn around gets sent to the airport lost and found. I would just call the airline you flew with and ask them for the lost and found number.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

i found out! (how to put a book)


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, good job!


message 38: by KSMary (last edited Mar 30, 2010 02:07PM) (new)

KSMary Thanks, Carla! I'll have to try that. It was US Air and I left it in Philadelphia. That airport is now officially my least favorite. The book isn't published yet, so I'll have to wait until this summer.

message 44: by Andrez (new)

Andrez (andrez-ssi) cool


message 45: by Elizabeth☮ (new)

Elizabeth☮ i finished In Cold Blood and was stunned by the book. this is definitely a must read for all. chilling and at the same time empathetic to the murderers. not that you don't think these men don't have what's coming to them (both were hanged about six years after the murders), but capote does a good job of painting a full picture of what these men's life were like growing up. and they had some hardships. again, that doesn't excuse killing someone. i think it's worth a read.
