Every Month Is A Holiday Challenge

January 1, 2008 – December 31, 2008

Kim is hosting a unique, and what I hope will be a fun and flexible, challenge called: Every Month is a Holiday.  The idea is to read one book a month which celebrates a notable day, holiday or special event. She is allowing a great deal of leeway on how books are chosen and how they fit into the event for a specific month…and she’s given us lists for every month that outline all the various “holidays.” You should really go check it out!

Of course, I could not say no to this challenge…I’m planning on choosing my book as each month approaches. I don’t want to be tied to a specific list, but want my book choices to be flexible based on how I am feeling. I believe this is part of the fun of a challenge like this one…and I intend to have FUN!
