What's In A Name 3 Challenge

What's in a Name Challenge is now being hosted by Beth F at Beth Fish Reads.  The challenge post to sign up and learn more about the challenge is here.

This should be an interesting one - I've never done a challenge like this before but I look forward to trying it.

So here's how it works: Between January 1 and December 31, 2010, read one book in each of the following categories:
  1. A book with a food in the title: Clockwork Orange, Grapes of Wrath, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  2. A book with a body of water in the title: A River Runs through It, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, The Lake House
  3. A book with a title (queen, president) in the title: The Murder of King Tut, The Count of Monte Cristo, Lady Susan
  4. A book with a plant in the title: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Wind in the Willows, The Name of the Rose
  5. A book with a place name (city, country) in the title: Out of Africa; London; Between, Georgia
  6. A book with a music term in the title: Song of Solomon, Ragtime, The Piano Teacher
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

Those are the basics.  You can find more about the challenge here.

My list of books will go here:
  1. Food: Let Them Eat Fruitcake by Melody Carlson
  2. Body of Water:
  3. Title: Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt
  4. Plant: Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
  5. Place name:  Sydney's DC Discovery by Jean Fischer
  6. Music Term: Welcome to Harmony by Jodi Thomas

I'm so glad you decided to give this a try. Have fun with it -- I like the treasure hunt aspect of finding book titles.
