"What's In A Name?" Reading Challenge

I will be participating in the "What's In A Name" Reading Challenge hosted by Annie beginning January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008.

The Challenge: Choose one book from each of the following categories:

1. A book with a color in its title. Examples might include: The Amber Spyglass, The Red Pony, Blue Blood

2. A book with an animal in its title. Examples might include: The Hound of the Baskervilles, To Kill a Mockingbird, Julie of the Wolves

3. A book with a first name in its title. Examples might include: Jane Eyre, the Harry Potter books, Anne of Green Gables

4. A book with a place in its title. Examples might include: From Russia with Love, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Out of Africa

5. A book with a weather event in its title. Examples might include: The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Red Storm Rising, Tornado Alley

6. A book with a plant in its title. Examples might include: Where the Red Fern Grows, The Name of the Rose, Flowers for Algernon

--You may overlap books with other challenges, but please don't use the same book for more than one category. (For example, you can use The Red Pony for either a "color" book or an "animal" book, but not for both.)


I'm all ready to get started! My selections are:
  1. The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
  2. Germ by Robert Liparulo
  3. He Loves Lucy by Susan Donovan
  4. Bangkok 8 by John Burdett
  5. Oregon Breeze by Birdie L. Etchison
  6. The Flower Net by Lisa See


HAPPY NEW YEAR & HAPPY READING!
