Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about the All Things Spring Challenge!

Those who have been around awhile know how these challenges work, but in case you're new to the Not Too Challenging Challenges, I'll explain.

The idea behind these challenges is that if you can make it work for you, then it works for me. Any book that reminds you of spring, no matter how remotely, can be used for this challenge.

Some ideas -

**Books published in March, April, May or June.
**Characters named March, April, May, June or Spring.
**Books that take place in the Spring or center around Spring activities such as Easter.
**Covers that remind you of Spring.
**Reminds you of Spring because you bought it during the spring.

Seriously, if for any reason it makes you think of Spring, it can count!

**The only restriction to the challenge is that the books must be read between March 20th and June 20th.

If you're interested, please sign up below!

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments No fair is right! Apparently some of the UK people got it early. Feckers. Not the UK people, but the ones who didn't send it to me.
