March's Build Your Own Challenge runs from March 1st through March 31st. As with all of our BYOC challenges, you get to decide how to make this one work for you. As long as you can tie it to March, it will count.

Need some ideas? Here you go -

--It's Irish American month, which brings to mind leprechauns, four leaf clovers, pots of gold and rainbows!

--It's Music in Our Schools Month, Nutrition Month, and Women’s History Month.

--March 2 is Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday.

--March 21st is the 1st day of Spring which makes me think of flowers and warmer weather. (There will be an All Things Spring Challenge posted in early March, so you might want to plan ahead for an opportunity to overlap books.)

If you need more inspiration, check out this list for other possible ideas: March Happenings

Please post your status updates like this: 1/4, 2/34, 9/10, etc. That's the best way to make sure you're updated correctly.

Restrictions - You can sign up and list your books at any time, but all books must be started no earlier than March 1st, and must be completed by March 31st to qualify. You can make changes to your challenge through the final day.

We hope you'll join us! :)

Gaynell (gaynellk) | 268 comments I'm in, too. I'll read 10 books from my ever expanding TBR pile. I don't know how they will relate to March except they will be books I get the urge to read in March. I usually don't know what book I'll want to read next until I get the one I'm reading finished. Maybe I'll read one or more series that I have bought, but have not read any of the books yet.

1. A Bed of Spices - Completed 3/3/12
2. Destined for an Early Grave - Completed 3/5/12
3. This Side of the Grave - Completed 3/7/12
4. One Grave at a Time - Completed 3/8/12

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments I'm about to start the Rock Chick series, Becky. What do you think of it? Have you read the Colorado Mountain series?


message 22: by Becky (new)

Becky (beckysbusyreading) | 320 comments I like the Rock Chick series but not as much as the Colorado Mountain series (which I loved and want to read again), but I am so addicted I can't stop myself from finishing the entire series. When I finish the Rock Chick I want to start another of her series-just haven't decided on which one yet;).
Kristen Ashley is now an auto buy for me! Her men are my ideal!!

Absolutely!!! I adore them! I read CM and DM series, and loved them both. A great standalone is Heaven and Hell.

If you're interested, smashwords is having a sale and KA's book are included, 25% off with code REW25. The most expensive books become about $3.75. The sale ends 3/10 I think.
