What's In a Name 4 Reading Challenge

Host: Beth F of Beth Fish Reads

Challenge: Read one book from each of the six categories below between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.

I had so much fun choosing books from my TBR and the library shelves to fit last year's categories, that I just had to do it again this year.

I will keep a running list of the books I read for this challenge here in this post.

1. A Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
2. The Amulet Graphic Novels by Kazu Kibuishi 
3. Dream A Little Dream by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

6. Imitation in Death by J.D. Robb

  1. Hey! I decided to join this challenge as well. It's up to over 200 participants. And because I'm an anal freak, I made a list of books so I'm not going in completely blind :)

  2. Pretty interesting. I might join this one... well not sign up, but at least, pay attention to it.

  3. Mariana...
    Sweet! So glad you joined this one, too! It's pretty fun when you choose a book you want to read that fits the categories. It's like finding that tricky piece to a puzzle. I already made a list of books, too, but am going to be flexible in case a better fit comes along.

    nath... This is a pretty creative and fun challenge. You'd be surprised how many books you have on your TBR shelves that could probably fill each of those categories.

  4. What a fascinating challenge!
