Read as many as you want:
1. Inventor Alexander Graham Bell's birthday was 3rd March. Read a book with characters having communication problems or where any mode of communication (phone, mail etc) plays an important role.
2. Robert Frost and Elizabeth Browning were both born in this month. Read a book on poetry, or a poetry book or a book where poetry plays an important role.
3. Julius Caesar was assassinated in this month! Read a book about a revolution or a book in which an important political figure is assassinated.
4. March brings spring to Pakistan and we welcome it with lots of kite flying and wearing bright colors. Read a book about Asian culture, based in Asia or just one in which a festival is given importance.
5. March also brings St. Patrick's Day. Read a book with a green cover or a book in which this day is part of the plot.

OR
Pick a word related to this month and read books to spell it out! You can use character names, book's title, series title or even the author's name!

Examples:
H: A Highlander Christmas (Highlander, #7) by Janet Chapman (Series name begins with an H)
E: The Edinburgh Dead by Brian Ruckley
A: Baited Blood (A Madison Rose Vampire Mystery #2) by Sue Ann Jaffarian (Female lead is named Ann)
R: Celtic Evil Roarke (Fitzgerald Brothers, #1) by Sierra Rose by Sierra Rose (Author's surname begins with an R)
T: The Cat Who Had 14 Tales by Lilian Jackson Braun (book's name begins with a T)

Ideas for words to use:
MARCH, KITES, SPRING etc

Alexandria Nicole (alexandriatheo) | 10 comments My word is going to be, in honor of St. Patrick's day,:

G - One Foot in the Grave
R - going to have to think about this one
E - At Grave's End
E - Destined for an Early Grave
N - This Side of the Grave - Night Huntress series

So obviously I've started the Night Huntress series and after the first book I love it! So this month I'm going to plan on finishing it :)


 Eldritch Reading Reindeer Welcomes 2022! (readingreindeerproximacentauri) | 18 comments I'm going to do this, probably the original challenge. I wish I had read this three days ago, I could have used The Bone House by Brian Freeman , which I just finished last night, for the communication problem: it's set in Northern Wisconsin and Florida-and during the WI locale, characters routinely have dropped cell coverage and inability to reach each other.:) Will post my picks when I decide. Good challenge, thanks.
