November #BookDare

Adam just posted the themes for the November #BookDare reading challenge. Basically, you check the themes, read the books, talk about them, see suggestions from other readers, and maybe win a prize. Do you need any other reasons to join the fun?

This Book!
Go to author Adam Lehrhaupt's blog for details.

Without further ado, the November themes:
Thanksgiving is in November. Read a book with a Thanksgiving theme.
November 2 is Book Lover’s Day. Read one of your favorite books.
November 11 is Veteran’s Day. Read a book with service or the military as a theme.
November 13 is Sadie Hawkins Day. Read a book by a female author.

And here are your November bonus themes:
November 4 is Waiting for the Barbarians Day. Read a book with barbarians, vikings or other unruly type characters..
November 25 is National Parfait day. I have no idea what this means, but it seems like fun. Read a funny book.
November 29 is Black Friday. Read a book with black on the cover or in the title.
November 15 is the America Recycles Day. Read a book with an ecological theme.

November Bookdare prize,

The giveaway this month is for Wendi Silvano's Turkey Claus, illustrations by local favorite, Lee Harper.

Both Wendi and Lee have been chosen as Picture Book Month Champions, and Adam will be a guest poster for PiBoIdMo

Also please consider purchasing an on-demand copy of Lee's new book, Coyote. It's a book born of personal loss, but it certainly has wider appeal. The proceeds benefit the children and families of Sandy Hook.
