Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments If you like the Read-the-Month challenge, but is having problems with the multiple-lettered months? If you like to take your time, and prefer a slower pace?

Read-the-Season Challenge follows the same format as our popular Read-the-Month Challenge, except that you have a whole season to finish 6 books plus a bonus one.

Here is the timeline:

Winter - December 21, 2009 - March 19, 2010
Spring - March 20, 2010 - June 20, 2010
Summer - June 21, 2010 - September 22, 2010
Autumn - September 23, 2010 - December 21, 2010

READ-THE-SEASON AUTUMN CHALLENGE
Duration: September 23, 2010 - December 21, 2010


Rules are simple. Using the word AUTUMN, pick a book title or author (first or last name) that begins with the letters in the chosen season.

Bonus: Read a book that has the word AUTUMN in its title.

D.G. | 4477 comments Wow! Two U books...I need to figure out if I have something with 'U' on my TBR that would work...

ETA: Yikes! Nothing with U! I'll check back when people have posted their lists to see if I can steal two 'U' books.

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 1058 comments I'm in, I'll post as I go.

@ D.G. The first two Stacia Kane books will work if you haven't read them yet: Unholy Ghosts and Unholy Magic. All of MJ Davidson's Queen Betsy books start with Undead and _____. Lisa Unger's Beautiful Lies is a pretty good suspense book with a little bit of romance thrown in the mix. I'll probably read another one of her books. Stephanie Rowe has a book called Unbecoming Behavior which is a quick, light read. I'll see if I can think of any more.

Alycia I'm in. Will post as I go.


message 15: by Anne OK (new)

Anne OK (anne-ok) | 223 comments Count me in. Here's some "U" books I found but haven't decided which I'll read for the challenge.

Under the Tuscan Sun
Under the Boardwalk
Under Her Skin
Up Close and Personal
Up Close and Dangerous

I'm leaning towards "Under the Tuscan Sun" because I loved the movie.

message 47: by Lori (new)

Lori Baldi Well, it looks like fun especially since 1 of my favorite books, which isn't listed so far, is a "U" book -- "Until You" by Judith McNaught! I've read it about 5 times and will be easy to get through 1 more time. And the bonus is a book I have recently acquired, "It Happened One Autumn" by Lisa Kleypas. It sounds as if I'm on my way. My first challenge here. Should be fun.
