Spring Book Challenge

Now that the wedding is over, I have a lot more time to read.  I have a couple friends who are members of the Nest Book Club, so I thought I would join their spring challenge.  I'm joining late, so I probably won't get very far, but I thought it would be fun.  It ends June 30th, so I have two months to get some of it accomplished.  These are just the 5 and 10 point tasks since I don't have much time.  My book choices are in red.

5 Point Tasks
May 7th is No Pants Day - Read a book with an article of clothing other than pants in the title

Read a book with a spring word in the title.

Read a book with a spring color as the color of the cover.

It is raining out, so read a book while staying dry.

Read a book with a number in the title.

In honor of spring break, read a book set in a place you would like to visit.

  1. Interesting! This sounds like a fun challenge, if I actually had time to be reading right now!

  2. Twenties Girl was really good. That was the first book I read this year. I just started the third book in the bride quartet by nora roberts...(savor the moment) It came out at the end of April.
