DHASG Songsters Winter Quarterly Challenge

Duration: December 22, 2011-March 20, 2012
Description: With this challenge, the goal is to read books that bring to mind a particular song. The book can be the exact title of the song, or have a theme reflected by the song title. Maybe even a character has the same name as the song title. Any way you can connect the song to a book, you can use it. Try to pick existing songs that can relate to bad boy or dangerous heroes. There are three levels to this challenge:

Amateur Songster: You’re a Karaoke Queen/King.
Read 3-4 books representing songs

Sold Out, One Evening Only Songster: Your life is a 5 minute music video.
Read 5-7 books representing songs

World Tour Songster: Your life is a 2 hour musical!
Read 8 and over books representing songs


General Rules:
1. You can only use a particular song and book once.
2. List the song and who sang it, the book and author, and when you completed it. If a song reminds you of a book character, feel free to tell us.
3. Post an updated thread to regularly record your status
4. Your book choices can overlap with any other group challenge as long as you read it within the starting and ending dates of this challenge.
5. Have fun!

Way to go, Kryptonite!


message 24: by Kryptonite (last edited Mar 06, 2012 04:23PM) (new)

Kryptonite (sg34) | 406 comments Thanks! I never realized how much a book can have connections with various songs. Now that I thought about it, for a few of these books, their songs were going through my head as I was reading the book. I thought this was going to be a very hard challenge since I don't listen to music that often.
