The Challenge is being hosted by The Worm Hole and the sign-up post is HERE.
The challenge runs from January to December. During this time you choose a book to read from each of the following categories.
The word ‘the’ used twice. (I have The Book of the Grail by Charlie Lovett.)
A fruit or vegetable. (I have The Olive Tree by Carol Drinkwater).)
A shape. (I have The Cheltenham Square Murder by John Bude)
A Title that begins with Z (an be after ‘The’ or ‘A’). (I have nothing but I haven't had a proper look yet.) Suggested title, The Z Murders by J. Jefferson Farjeon.
A nationality. (I have The French Riviera by Ted Jones.)
A season. (I have One Summer: America 1927 by Bill Bryson.)
As usual I’ve tried to include some easy categories and some not so. Remember the titles I’ve given here are only examples, you can by all means use them if you want to but it’s not necessary. There are plenty of other books that will fit the categories and you may have some in mind already or even some on your shelves you can read.
Books can be any format (print, audio, ebook). It’s preferred that the books don’t overlap with other challenges, but not a requirement at all.
Books cannot overlap categories (for instance my example of The Square Root Of Summer could be used for ‘a shape’ or ‘a season’ but not both).
Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed, it’s encouraged!
You don’t have to make your list of books beforehand, you can choose them as you go.
You don’t have to read your chosen books in any particular order.
The books I've chosen may change... plus I don't have one for the Z anyway. *But* I think it would be a useful thing to read those five books and get them off my tbr pile so I'll do my level best to read some of them.
