2024 Reading Challenge: February

Hey readers!

Feeling blue about the winter weather? The grass may be greener (or at least not covered in a layer of white) in warmer climates, but the yellow, pink, and purple of spring flowers is right around the corner. Keep all those colorful thoughts in mind for this month’s Mass Center for the Book reading challenge!

February’s challenge is: A book with a color in the title
