Where's my bookmark?

Wanting to do something new and a little different to start off the year, I've decided to join What's In A Name, a reading challenge hosted by Annie, the most delightful and gifted 10 year-old daughter of blogging buddy, Debi.

The rules are simple - read 6 books between January 1,2008 - December 31, 2008 in each of the following categories:

1. A book with a color in its title.
my choice: Whitethorn Woods, by Maeve Binchy

2. A book with an animal in its title.
my choice: Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen

3. A book with a first name in its title.
my choice: Mary, Mary, by James Patterson

4. A book with a place in its title.
my choice: Shutter Island, by Dennis Lehane

5. A book with a weather event in its title.
my choice: Eye of the Storm, by James A. Forrest

6. A book with a plant in its title.
my choice: A Rose for Her Grave, by Ann Rule

Couldn't be easier, you don't need a blog to join in the fun and you can change your list during the year if you want.

I've read Mary, Mary and Shutter Island...don't remember much about the former, but the latter was great, albeit very strange. ;)

Ooh, fun! I joined this one too, Marianne. In fact, this is the only reading challenge I've joined, although I considered others. I thought Annie did a great job coming up with the title and categories for this one. It's not too stringent, I am pretty sure I can read these books in the time frame :)

Happy Reading!!!
