March Scattergories

The Lost Challenges discussion on goodreads

The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches your letter and the category.

This “Challenge” works in conjunction with the other challenges you may participate in this month. You may use a book to fulfill multiple items (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!) While you are fulfilling the requirements of your other challenges, be on the lookout for the following items (they may be on the cover or mentioned in the book):

The Challenge: I will post a list of 12 categories, 6 general relating to any book, and 6 specific to that month. On the last day of the month before, I will post the letter of the month. You can start reading on the 1st. The goal is to get as many points as possible by the end of the month.

The scoring: for the first 6 tasks, you need to read 
1. A book with a title that begins with the letter of the month
2. A book with an author whose first or last name begin with the letter of the month
3. A book with a Main Character whose first or last name begins with the letter of the month (I will accept a nick name)
4. A book with a Secondary Character whose first or last name begins with the letter of the month. (I will accept a nick name)
5. A book that has a location beginning with the letter of the month (either a name or a place - library/Lincoln)
6. A book with an item on the cover that begins with the letter of the month. (you must post the cover & state what the item is.)
For 1-4, you can score additional points for more words starting with the letter of the month - the authors/characters first AND last name begin with letter of the month or the title has more words beginning with the letter of the month). Score 1 extra point per word/name beginning with letter of the month.
For the Specials Section, you can either find the given word in the text of your book for one point OR you can find a word that fits the given word that begins with the letter of the month for 2 points. 
(if the given letter is T & you are looking for "Chocolate" you can find the word Chocolate or find "Truffle" or "Turtle" (as in the candy kind.) If you find the word Chocolate you score 1 point. If you find a word that begins with the letter of the month, you score 2 points. 
Please give the location of the word and the sentence it is found in. For every word in that sentence that begins with the letter of the month, you get one more point per word. {Tyler found Tami's favorite TRUFFLES at the local pharmacy. Score for this sentence: 5 points: Tyler (1) Tami (1) Truffles (2) the (1)}
