What’s in a Name Challenge 2019

It’s ON! I’m so excited to be participating once again in the Challenge that suits me and my reading style so well. The What’s in a Name 6-Category Reading Challenge now hosted by Andrea at Carolina Book Nook. The image below will link to the Challenge Sign up Page.

The categories and my ideas for a book I might read to satisfy:

  • A precious stone/metal  –  The Alexandrite: A Time Travel Noir by Rick Lenz
  • A temperature  –  Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford (a CC50)
  • A month or day of the week  – One Fine Day by Mollie Panter-Downes (CC50)
  • A meal –  Anyone want to support my thoughts that The Bird’s Nest (Shirley Jackson, CC50) qualifies because it is a dish considered a “delicacy in Chinese cuisine“?
  • Contains the word “girl” or “woman”  –  Marie Benedict’s The Only Woman in the Room
  • Contains both the words “of” AND “and” –  Looks like Nonfiction is the way to go. Two interesting options:

  1. This is a fun challenge and I usually participate but this year I’m not doing any year-long reading challenges. Yikes. Anyway, have tons of fun!

    1. Thanks! I cut back last year and then found out I would have completed a few without trying. Funny how that works out sometimes. Best to you on a lovely reading year.

  2. Thanks for joining! I just learned about bird’s nest soup for the first time a couple of months ago. Go for it! 🙂

    1. Thanks. and YOU’RE DOING GREAT at the hosting! it’s pretty easy once you get the pages set up for recording all the Linkies… 😀

  3. Great categories! I was thinking about a category for the BTCC with words from the calendar (i.e., days of the week, months of the year, etc.) but I didn’t know if that would be too hard if all the books have to be at least 50 years old.

    And I also agree that Bird’s Nest is a food. It is definitely a soup (though I don’t think I’d like it); also, my grandmother used to make something called Bird’s Nest cookies — basically, it’s chocolate chips melted and mixed with fried chow mein noodles and peanuts. It sounds gross but we used to fight over them when we were kids.

    1. Thanks for the support. 😀
      This is the first time I’ve picked What’s in a Name titles NOT from my own shelves – because those darn books are still packed in boxes and those boxes are at the bottom of a huge stack of unpacked boxes…
