What's in a Name 5

Hosted by: Beth Fish Reads
Dates: 1 January to 31 December, 2012

I had so much fun with this one in 2011, I can't possibly resist the 2012 edition. The idea is to 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 something you'd find on a calendar in the title
See the announcement/sign-up page here.

At the moment, I'm considering these titles for the challenge, but the list will almost certainly change during the year:
  1. Tyrannosaur Canyon. Douglas Preston
  2. The Moonstone. Wilkie Collins
  3. Spiderweb. Penelope Lively
  4. Iron House. John Hart
  5. The Glass Key. Dashiell Hammett
  6. The Man Who Was Thursday. G.K. Chesterton
I'll be keeping track of my progress on my challenge blog here.


  1. That's such a fun challenge. Good luck!

  2. This does sound like an interesting challenge. Happy New Year's reading!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
