What's in a Name? 3 Challenge

Beth Fish Reads is hosting another fun challenge. This time it's the What's in a Name? 3 Challenge! Here's the scoop:

So here's how it works: Between January 1 and December 31, 2010, read one book in each of the following categories:

1. A book with a food in the title: Clockwork Orange, Grapes of Wrath, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

2. A book with a body of water in the title: A River Runs through It, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, The Lake House

3. A book with a title (queen, president) in the title: The Murder of King Tut, The Count of Monte Cristo, Lady Susan

4. A book with a plant in the title: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Wind in the Willows, The Name of the Rose

5. A book with a place name (city, country) in the title: Out of Africa; London; Between, Georgia

6. A book with a music term in the title: Song of Solomon, Ragtime, The Piano Teacher

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

Other Things to Know

* Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
* Books may overlap other challenges.
* Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
* Creativity for matching the categories is allowed.
* You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
* You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
* There will be a single prize at the end of the challenge. Readers who complete the challenge and write up a wrap-up post (or wrap-up comment) are eligible. I'll figure out a way to make it international.

You can get all of the details here.

I am already looking through my bookshelves to see what books I currently have that fit these criteria!

This challenge is sure to be lots of fun! Are you in?
