This thread is for participants to post their lists and update their progress. The thread for suggestions is HERE.

1. 'J' is for July: We liked it so much in June, lets do it again!! Read a book that starts with 'J' or by an author whose first or last name begins with 'J'.

2. Happy Birthday!: Read a book from a July birthday celebrant's GR bookshelf whose name/nickname starts with the same letter as yours. If no one has the same letter, choose someone with the closest letter to yours alphabetically. RRRC July Birthday List

3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Saudi Arabia (Middle East). Or because Saudi Arabia has all of these, read a book about a monarchy (royal family), oil, or desert.

4. 7th Month: Lets face it, not a lot of series are seven books long. Since seven is a prime number, read a book that is a prime number in a series or has a prime number of words in the title. For those of you aren't math geeks like me, a prime number is a number greater than one divisible only by itself and one - 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13... (Yeah, this is practically a freebie!)

5. Fourth of July: Read a book with a Firecracker Heroine or a red, white and/or blue cover.

6. Tour de France/Summer Olympics: Read a book that features athletes or an athletic event, takes place outdoors or is set in France or England.

7. All or Nothing Day, July 26th: Read a stand alone book, one that is not part of a series or connected to any other book.

8. I Forgot Day, July 2nd: Read a book that has been on your to-read list so long you forgot about it.

9. Ugly Truck Day, July 20th: Read a book about a cowboy, construction worker, mechanic, set on a ranch, involves cars/trucks, or one that just has a cover with a guy that looks like he was out working on his truck. ~sigh~

10. Reader's Choice: Read any book of your choice.

You can choose 3, 5, 8 or all 10 categories, depending on your reading speed, book availability and/or time commitments.

When posting your progress, please make sure to put the date you finished each book.

Please repost your progress as it helps with updating!

Happy Reading!

Megan (Celtic_Girl) | 118 comments I'm in and will try for all ten!


RRRC July 2012 Monthly Challenge
Duration: July 1, 2012 - July 31, 2012
Completed: 10/10


1. 'J' is for July: We liked it so much in June, lets do it again!! Read a book that starts with 'J' or by an author whose first or last name begins with 'J'. Anything Goes: My Autobiography by John Barrowman ~ July 2

2. Happy Birthday Melanie (July 6)!: The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting ~ July 11

3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Saudi Arabia (Middle East). Or because Saudi Arabia has all of these, read a book about a monarchy (royal family), oil, or desert. The Girl's Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World by Liz Curtis Higgs ~ July 25

4. 7th Month: Lets face it, not a lot of series are seven books long. Since seven is a prime number, read a book that is a prime number in a series or has a prime number of words in the title. For those of you aren't math geeks like me, a prime number is a number greater than one divisible only by itself and one - 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13... (Yeah, this is practically a freebie!) A Baby Between Them by Winnie Griggs (#3) ~ July 16

5. Fourth of July: Read a book with a Firecracker, Heroine or a red, white and/or blue cover. XVI by Julia Karr ~ July 22

6. Tour de France/Summer Olympics: Read a book that features athletes or an athletic event, takes place outdoors or is set in France or England. Knee Deep by Jolene B. Perry ~ July 30

7. All or Nothing Day, July 26th: Read a stand alone book, one that is not part of a series or connected to any other book. Her Rebel Heart by Shannon Farrington ~ July 11

8. I Forgot Day, July 2nd: Read a book that has been on your to-read list so long you forgot about it. Risky Reunion by Lenora Worth ~ July 15

9. Ugly Truck Day, July 20th: Read a book about a cowboy, construction worker, mechanic, set on a ranch, involves cars/trucks, or one that just has a cover with a guy that looks like he was out working on his truck. ~sigh~ The Vow: True Events that Inspired the Movie by Kim Carpenter ~ July 27

10. Reader's Choice: Read any book of your choice. Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath by Mimi Alford ~ July 2
