“What’s in a name” Challenge

After completing the “James Patterson Reading Challenge”, I was motivated to participate in something else to keep me challenged.

“What’s in a Name Challenge” is being hosted by Beth F at Beth Fish Reads. The challenge post to sign up and learn more about the challenge is here.

So here’s how it works: Between January 1 and December 31, 2010, read one book in each of the following categories:

  1. A book with a food in the title: Clockwork Orange, Grapes of Wrath, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  2. A book with a body of water in the title: A River Runs through It, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, The Lake House
  3. A book with a title (queen, president) in the title: The Murder of King Tut, The Count of Monte Cristo, Lady Susan
  4. A book with a plant in the title: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Wind in the Willows, The Name of the Rose
  5. A book with a place name (city, country) in the title: Out of Africa; London; Between, Georgia
  6. book with a music term in the title: Song of Solomon, Ragtime, The Piano Teacher

I have not yet decided on the books but will get there as and when I find some good books. Here is where I will be tracking my status on this challenge
