What's In A Name Challenge 2016

Host: Charlie @ The Worm Hole
Dates: January - December 2016
See the challenge announcement/sign-up post HERE

I haven't participated in the What's In A Name challenge for a couple of years, but I'm signing up for the 2016 edition. It's always fun matching up books with categories, and it's going to allow me to read a few of the books that've been on my TBR pile for quite a few years now.

Although Charlie says it's preferred that books don't overlap with other challenges, she also says it's not a requirement. Which is good, because I'm pretty sure I'll be doing quite a bit of overlapping. This list is very likely to change during the year, but here's what I'm thinking about reading for each of the six categories:
  1. A country in title: From Russia With Love, by Ian Fleming
  2. An item of clothing: Death in a White Tie, by Ngaio Marsh 
  3. An item of furniture: The Cabinet of Curiosities, by Preston & Child
  4. A profession: The Nine Tailors, by Dorothy L. Sayers  
  5. A month of the year: The Enchanted April, by Elizabeth von Arnim 
  6. A title with the word "tree" in it: Silver on the Tree, by Susan Cooper 
During the year, I'll be tracking my progress over on my challenge blog (HERE).


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.
