Read a book that starts with 'S' or a book whose author's first or last name starts with 'S'
2. Member of the Month - Pollyanna: Sweet Danger by Pierson, Cheryl 9/30

Fun Facts about Connecticut:
★ Connecticut is known as the "Constitution State".

So you can also read a historical romance set in the United States or any book where a MC works for the government. Or you could read a book with a body of water on the cover or is set on a body of water. In addition, you may read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finnor any other classic.
4. Fight Procrastination Day (Sept. 6): Flirting with Texas (Deep in the Heart of Texas, #5) by Lane, Katie 9/15
One problem with this group, it makes your TBR grow and grow and many books get neglected. Read a book that has been on your to-read (or similar) shelf for over a year. Or if you are a newer member to goodreads, one that has been on that shelf since you joined.
5. Make Your Bed Day (Sept. 11): How to Tame a Wild Fireman(The Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel, #4) by Bernard, Jennifer 9/29

Knock on Wood, Cross Your Fingers or maybe counting on Beginner's Luck - all things we might be doing this Friday the 13th! Or you could read instead! Read a PNR, UF, horror or a book with any good or bad luck symbol on the cover.
7. Blame Someone Else Day (Sept. 13): Ruthless Corcoran Team, #2) by Dimon, HelenKay 9/21
Read a book recommended to you by someone or a book from your GR recommendations. Then you can blame, or credit, someone else!
8. Elephant Appreciation Day (Sept. 22): The Sweetheart Bargain by Jump, Shirley 9/7
And there is so much to appreciate...! Read a book with an animal (or shifter) on the cover or in the story.

I have some and I hope you do too! Read a book where a neighbor plays part in the story or a friends to lovers story.
