On the first day of Reading, my true love gave to me:

2.  Two Turtle Doves: Turtle doves symbolize love. Read a book about love/family.
3.  Three French Hens: French Hens symbolize hope and charity. Read a book about hope or volunteering, helping others.   
4.  Four Calling Birds: Birds are sometimes considered messengers of the gods. Read a book with a god/ goddess or about birds.

6.  Six Geese a Laying: In animal symbolism, the goose stands for faithfulness or loyalty. Read a book with a dog or about a dog. 
7.  Seven Swans a Swimming:  Swans remind me of the ugly duckling. Read a book where one of the characters undergoes a major change or gets a makeover.
