Read Your Name Challenge

O.K., I think I can handle this one, too. Victoria is hosting the Read Your Name Challenge 2009. The idea is simple -- read books that begin with the letters of your name. For me, this will only require four books! Visit Victoria's challenge blog for all the rules. Here is my list:

L = Love in the time of Cholera (overlap with What's in a Name Challenge)

I= Icy Sparks by Gwyn Rubio

S= The Stone Angel by Margaret Laurence

A = Abide with Me by Elizabeth Strout OR Anna Karenia by Tolstoy

Once again, these are all books that I already own. So, I'm not buying new books, and I'm whittling away at the tbr mountain.

So many interesting challenges to choose from! This one sounds good . . .

That's very clever but so unfair when you have a long name! :) I read Stone angel last year for a book group and really enjoyed it. It won't make you feel happy to grow though.

victoria, thanks for hosting this one. I think it'll be fun!

literary feline, too many to choose from -- that's my problem!

stefanie, for once I'm glad to have a short, boring name. My mom was not very creative with our names -- Pam, Lisa and Scott. However, this is because she and her siblings had such unusual names -- Venay, Venon, Quita, and Norvel.
