But now, of course, I have found approximately 1.467 trillion new things I want to join/do/be a part of. Here is the latest treasure I am chasing in 2011.
Since I'm already down for reading 111 books this year with The Centurions of 2011, I think Beth Fish's yearly "What's in a Name" reading challenge will be a fun way to track some of my reads. It's fairly simple to do, which works for my feeble brain.
When I started hunting books, I found several new titles I am excited about and excavated many old titles I had forgotten, buried in the catacombs of my book stacks. Here is the list, and what I plan to read:
- A book with a number in the title - Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut and An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
- A book with jewelry or a gem in the title - Hidden Gems: Naming and Teaching from the Brilliance in Every Students Writing by Katherine Bomer
- A book with a size in the title - Little Bee by Chris Cleave and Wither by Lauren DeStefano
- A book with travel or movement in the title - Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario and The Passage by Justin Cronin
- A book with evil in the title - A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- A book with a life stage in the title - A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick, Hereafter by Tara Hudson, and Boys Without Names by Kashmira Sheth
Mosey on over to her site for more examples of each. I think I'll do two books for each title-search, since I have a plethora of books to read by December!
What would your book choices be?
