Drum Roll!

April challenge will be:

1. To read a book with pink on the cover. Anywhere, any amount. Pink is to symbolize the new flowers that will be starting to bloom this spring.

2. And/Or books with a ocean theme: diving, beaches, vacation, boating. I love to swim and sit on the beach with a good book.
