Inspiration struck me a few days ago while working on themes and authors flavors for the 52 Books in 52 Weeks challenge. Something that would spice up the old A to Z alphabet or spelling out the months. The Birthstone Bookology Reading Adventure will take me around the world and through different time periods from the ancients to the present. Plus there are a variety of directions this challenge can go with exploring the myths and lore, different time periods and countries where the stones are found, as well as reading books spelling out the stones. The possibilities are limitless and ripe with rabbit trails.
I'm going to keep an open mind, use my imagination and see where it takes me. Join me on Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks and have fun exploring the world.
