Last Days to Enter October BookDare

Even Monsters Need Haircuts,
 by Matthew McElligott 
 Thanks again to Adam Lehrhaupt  for his #BookDare challenge. This has definitely been a challenging month!

In September, I forgot to post my reading list and be entered for the giveaway. Don't you do the same in October. Hop over to Adam Lehrhaupt's blog and comment on the books you've read this month which correspond with the categories below. If you missed this month's challenge, stay tuned. Adam posts a new list each month. Tweet your favorites and get a conversation started.

I usually try to coordinate the BookDare list with my regular MG/YA reads, but in preparation for Picture Book Month, I decided to choose picture books which fit the themes. It's a lot of fun. I hope you'll join us in November.

The Duckling Gets A Cookie!?

October Themes:
1. Halloween is in October. Read a book with a Halloween theme.
2. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Read a book with pink on the cover.
3. October 31 is Increase Your Psychic Powers Day. Read the book that you think I’m thinking of right now.
4. October 6 is Mad Hatter Day. Read a book with a hat on the cover.

And here are your October bonus themes:
October 9 is Moldy Cheese Day. Just mention your favorite cheese in the comments for an entry.
October 11 is Take Your Teddy B ear to Work Day. Read a book with a bear in it.
October is Cookie Month. Read a book with a cookie on the cover or in the title.

    1. Almost as much fun as Adam's new book, Warning: Do Not Open This Book! (there are monkeys in it)
      Thanks, Rhythm.
