What’s in a Name Challenge 2012

What’s in a Name 5  is being hosted by Beth at Beth Fish Reads. I have been meaning to sign up for it for the past two years but I always end up procrastinating and end up not doing it. This year I thought I would do it even if it is kind of late in the day.

Now about the challenge, between January 1 and December 31, 2012, read one book in each of the following categories:

  1. A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title,
  2. A book with something you’d see in the sky in the title,
  3. A book with a creepy crawly in the title,
  4. A book with a type of house in the title,
  5. A book with something you’d carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title,
  6. A book with a something you’d find on a calendar in the title.

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 not only allowed but encouraged.
  • 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.
