Greyweather | 43 comments There is also the What's in a Name? Challenge
You have six categories (name, location, weather, color, plant, and animal) and you have to read a book with that category as part of the title.

For example:
Solomon VS. Lord
The Secret History of Moscow
Snow Crash
Red Seas Under Red Skies
House of Leaves
The Weird of the White Wolf

Linda Is that "What's in a Name" challenge posted somewhere here? I can't find it, and it sounds interesting to me.

message 4: by Tien (new)

Tien (tiensblurb) There are many challenges on blogspot (including what's in a name)

Also there are a couple other of groups on GR that are running challenges:

The Next Best Book Club - The Official Fall Challenge is close to finishing but the Winter one will be starting on 1 Dec.

Pick-a-Shelf (this is a group I created) - there's a mini game starting 1 Dec also.

Greyweather | 43 comments Here's a new one (I think).

The Five Senses Challenge
Read five books, the title of each should have something in it associated with the five senses (Sight, Hearing, Taste, Smell, Touch) and/or the five organs that are associated with each sense (Eyes, Ears, Tongue, Nose, Fingers/Skin).

The Mote in God's Eye
Putting It Together: Turning Sow's Ear Drafts Into Silk Purse Stories
A Taste of Revenge
A Whiff of Death
Seven Touches of Music

message 6: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) I've set my self the challenge of banning myself from books and trying to make a dent in my to-be-read pile rather then buying new ones.

Maybe that as another possibility?
