What's in a Name 5

 
***Challenge Completed***
 
Hosted by: Beth Fish Reads
Dates: 1 January to 31 December, 2012

The idea of the challenge is to read one book in each of the following categories:
  1. A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title
  2. A book with something you'd see in the sky in the title
  3. A book with a creepy crawly in the title
  4. A book with a type of house in the title
  5. A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title
  6. A book with something you'd find on a calendar in the title
Other Guidelines (quoted from the challenge announcement page):
  • Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
  • Books may overlap other challenges.
  • Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
  • Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed but encouraged.
  • You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
  • You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
