Welcome to May and our celebration of mysteries, mothers, Memorial day, macaroons, and much much more including all things Star Wars. May the fourth be with you! We are climbing back aboard the good ship Pumdeg Dau o Lyfrau and floating through our interdimensional portal to Texas to begin our librarian adventures with Beatrice De Nova.
Beatrice is the assistant librarian in the Special Collections reading room at the Houston University Library and her adventure begins when she meets Giovanni Vecchio, an Italian bookish vampire who loves whiskey, in A Hidden Fire, the first book in the Elemental Mystery series written by Elizabeth Hunter.
There are a variety of ways to complete this challenge with plenty of rabbit trails. Read a book with one or more of the following (but not limited to) and have fun exploring:
Spell out the first and/or last name of the character's name - one book per letter from the title on the cover
Spell out the first and/or last name of the author - one book per letter
Read one or more books in the series.
Read any book written by the author
Follow in a character's footsteps and read a book set in the country or time period of the story.
Follow in the author's footsteps and read a book set in their place or time of birth.
Read a book with the first or last name of the character or author in the title.
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!!!!
