There is a new host for this challenge in 2010. Beth at Beth Fish Reads will be hosting What’s In A Name 3 Challenge with a few changes. Here’s how it works: Between January 1 and December 31, 2010, read one book in each of the following categories:
- A book with a food in the title:
- A book with a body of water in the title: The Secret River, by Kate Grenville
- A book with a title (queen, president) in the title: The Witch of Blackbird Pond, by Elizabeth George Speare
- A book with a plant in the title: A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, by Betty Smith
- A book with a place name (city, country) in the title: The Lost City of Z, by David Grann
- A book with a music term in the title: The Piano Teacher, by Janice Y.K. Lee
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.
Other Things to Know
- Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
- Books may overlap other challenges.
- Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
- Creativity for matching the categories is allowed.
- You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
- You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
- There will be a single prize at the end of the challenge. Readers who complete the challenge and write up a wrap-up post (or wrap-up comment) are eligible. Beth says she’ll figure out a way to make it international.
See my book choices in red. I’m still thinking on a few of them.
