what’s in a name 2016


Here’s How It Works

Between January 1 and December 31, 2016, read one book in each of the following categories:

  1. A country (Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn, Xiaolu Guo’s I Am China, Martin Wagner’s Deutschland)
  2. An item of clothing (Su Dharmapala’s Saree, Ann Brashare’s The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants, Javier Moro’s El Sari Rojo; Pierre Lemaitre’s Vestido De Novia)
  3. An item of furniture (Marghanita Laski’s The Victorian Chaise-Longue; C S Lewis’s The Silver Chair; Goslash;hril Gabrielsen’s The Looking-Glass Sisters)
  4. A profession (Adriana Trigiani’s The Shoemaker’s Wife; Mikhail Elizarov’s The Librarian)
  5. A month of the year (Elizabeth Von Arnim’s The Enchanted April; Rhoda Baxter’s Doctor January)
  6. A title with the word ‘tree’ in it (Ai Mi’s Under The Hawthorn Tree; Elle Newmark’s The Sandalwood Tree)

The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

Category 1: A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. Le Guin

Category 2:The President’s Hat, by Antoine Laurain

Category 3: The Secret of the Old Clock, by Carolyn Keene

Category 4: Death Comes for the Archbishop, by Willa Cather
