Winter Words Reading Challenge

December 21, 2009 - March 19, 2010

Tarissa of In the Bookcase is hosting the Winter Words Reading Challenge.  Here's what she says:

How many books do you want to read this Winter? It's time to start planning.
December 21 is the first day of Winter, and March 19 is the last day of the season...and this is the duration time of the reading challenge I'm hosting.

Here's how this challenge works:
Select your number of books you want to read below, and choose one of the corresponding words (I have set the minimum amount of books at 3).
3. ice,   ski
4. snow,   sled
5. frost,   slick
6. winter,   icicle,   flurry
7. mittens,   snowman
8. slippery,   ice skate
9. snowflake

The word you pick above is an acronym & the books that you read during this challenge will have to coordinate with the letters in the acronym.
You can use either of the following ways to select your books:
(1) A word in the title of your books must start with a letter from your chosen word.
or... (2) The author's first or last name has to begin with 1 of the letters in your acronym.

Try to find a fitting book for every letter in your acronym. For example, if you want to read 3 books & pick the word ICE, this could be your book list:

 I ::: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - by Laura Numeroff
 C ::: The Secret of the Old Clock - by Carolyn Keene
    E ::: Eight Cousins - by Louisa May Alcott

{The above are just sample titles, but it should give you an idea of what to do. Remember, you can choose ANY books you want. Maybe it's already one that you had on your reading-soon list, and fits in with this challenge. It's your decision of what you what to read!}

This challenge is for all ages of children, teens, & adults. Anyone is welcome to participate, and I hope YOU will!
