Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) This month I got the idea that each member can pick their own challenge. However, the challenges must have something to do with the following topics:


NOTE: The books don't necessarily have to revolve around these topics. For example, you don't have to read a book that takes place completely during Spring; your challenge could be to read books that have green covers.

Any questions, ask below. Good luck!

Lori Goldstein I'm still not clear as to what or how many books of a topic to read. Also with music how would that work into this challenge.

And don't understand with covers how things would work.

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Lori, you can set your book goal to whatever you choose.

With music, you could read a book where a character in the book is in a band or plays an instrument.

For covers:

~Family: a person on the cover (male or female is up to you)
~Spring: A colour that reminds you of spring, or flowers, or sun
~Patriotism: a flag or a colour of your country's flag

Lori Goldstein Thanx Zakiya for the explanations.

Meghan, Like your ideas for these categories.

MUSIC: A former co-worker who was one tough cookie passed away recently. Mrs. Kang taught both regular band as well as Jazz band and Jazz Combo. In her memory will read at least one book dealing with Jazz music. (Not made this month, but am adding it to my "April" reads)

The rest of the "themes" I'm going to see what book plots and/or covers I can work in.

PATRIOTISM: Red, White or Blue on the Cover (2/3)
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick by Brian Selznick

FAMILY (Plot centers on a "family" and/or siblings exclusively):
The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson

SPRING (Floral Arrangements or Spring type items on the cover):
Hope to get into it next month.
