What's In A Name 2014 - Completed

I joined this challenge again this year. It is one of my favorite, if not THE Favorite.  Charlie at The Worm Hole did an amazing job this year, picking categories. 

The challenge runs from January to December. During this time you choose a book to read from each of the following categories (examples of books you could choose are in brackets):
  • A reference to time (Eleven Minutes, Before Ever After)
  • A position of royalty (The People’s Queen, The Last Empress, The Curse Of The Pharaoh)
  • A number written in letters (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, A Tale Of Two Cities)
  • A forename or names (Rebecca, Eleanor & Park, The Unfinished Work Of Elizabeth D.)
  • A type or element of weather (Gone With The Wind, Red Earth Pouring Rain)
Late in February, Charlie added a sixth category: book with a school subject in the title ( The History Boys by Alan Bennett, Angelology by Danielle Trussoni, Mastering The Art Of Soviet Cooking by Anya Von Bremzen. 

Tonight I finished the 6th book to complete this challenge. Since January 1, I read:

  • A reference to time : A Time to Dance by Karen Kingsbury
  • A position of royalty : The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
  • A number written in letters: One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus
  • A forename or names : Peony in Love by Lisa See
  • A type or element of weather: The Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nancy Pickard
  • A school subject:  The Driving Lesson by Ben Rehder

Thanks Charlie for taking over this challenge. It was great. I will look forward to 2015. 

Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
