What's in a Name? 3 Challenge


This is probably going to be the most challenge for me to finish, but that's kinda why I'm giving it a try this year. I'm intrigued by it. I'm interested to see just how well I can do with it.

This challenge is being hosted by Beth Fish Reads, She has a dedicated blog for the challenge.

The rules:

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. A book with a music term in the title: Song of Solomon, Ragtime, The Piano Teacher
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

I don't have to create a list ahead of time, which is awesome. It's going to be a surprise to my readers and myself!
