I was over at Bev's place, My Reader's Block.  She has posted about a reading challenge I want to join. It's the What's In A Name Reading Challenge.  I did this one a few years ago and loved looking for books that fit the categories.  So I decided I'd try it again.  It's being hosted by Charlie over The Worm Hole.  Here are the particulars......

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 – translations and other languages most definitely count!): 

1. The word ‘the’ used twice (The Secret By The Lake; The End Of The Day, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time
2. A fruit or vegetable (The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society; The Particular Sadness Of Lemon Cake)
3.  A shape (The Ninth Circle, The Square Root Of Summer, Circle Of Friends)
4.  A title that begins with Z – can be after ‘The’ or ‘A’ (Zen In The Art Of Writing; The Zookeeper’s Wife, Zelda)
5. A nationality (Anna And The French Kiss; How To Be A Kosovan Bride; Norwegian Wood)
6. A season (White Truffles In Winter; The Spring Of Kasper Meier; The Summer Queen; Before I Fall; The Autumn Throne)
