Carolyn’s Gentle Spectrums 2017

gentle-spectrums-2017

 

Happy RIEDEL Challenges renewal!  February 1 is here for my four groups!  May we have a fun year with GENTLE SPECTRUMS 2017!  This is my post for creatively choosing my literature.  I plan, then smooth out this list into finished books with reviews.  I keep categories that will continue to drum up a lot of book possibilities for us but add a fresh batch that will be easy as well.  I always have a lot of colour titles on hand and love matching them for our ten other themes, so please enjoy generous the scope of all eleven!  For some, the content suffices instead of scrounging for title words.

How do you think your reading fits these?  There is no quota and the same colour book can also go into one subject category.  If you are finding several books that match, please sign-up with me by clicking my gorgeous Manitoba portrait above and gather them with us!
