What's in a Name Challenge!

What? Yet another reading challenge?

Uh, but this is a neat one. What's in a Name Challenge! tests participants to find and read books that fit its six different categories. And, these are thinking-outside-of-the-box categories. For instance, one category is called "a book with a number in the title." Interesting, no? Participants only need to read one book in each category, and we have all of 2011 to complete the quest.

This challenge is hosted by Beth Fish who blogs at Beth Fish Reads. For more details about the What's in a Name Challenge!, click here.  

As usual, I already have my list of titles for the challenge, culled from my 2011 Reading List. Here you go:
  1. A book with a number in the title: At Swim-Two-Birds by Flann O'Brien
  2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: The Clue of the Broken Locket by Carolyn Keene
  3. A book with a size in the title: A Little Too Much Is Enough by Kathleen Tyou
  4. A book with travel or movement in the title: Travels with Zenobia, Paris to Albania by Model T Ford: A Journal by Rose Wilder Lane and Helen Dore Boylston, edited by William Holtz
  5. A book with evil in the title: Bad-Ass Faeries edited by Danielle Ackley-McPhail, L. Jagi Lamplighter, Lee Hillman, and Jeff Lyman
  6. A book with a life stage in the title: I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason by Susan Kandel
It's less than 2 hours until 2011 yawns aloud in my time zone. Happy New Year, dear readers!


  1. Number 4 is one heck of a long title.

    Interesting challenge.

  2. Alice, the funny thing is the book physically is relatively slim. :-)
