Bev - I won't find them all either, and I didn't even set a goal of how many to find. I'll just be happy with whatever I can finish.


message 15: by Ed (last edited Jan 29, 2018 05:56PM) (new)

Ed Lehman | 2145 comments Question....do the names have to be characters or authors...or would names from non-fiction works also qualify? Perhaps a character or non-fiction author discusses Queen Elizabeth but Queen Elizabeth is not a character, is that sufficient?


message 16: by Ed (new)

Ed Lehman | 2145 comments Also....what if I find the name on the list...but in the source it is a last name...such as Jimmy Carter..... or if I find a male with one of the female names or vice versa...such as George Elliot?

jingles | 3480 comments Mod
Ed - it doesn't matter if the name is found in a non-fiction book, or if the person is real or fiction. If you find the name in a non-fiction book, it is okay to use it.

And you can use first or last name. So in the case of Jimmy Carter or George Elliot - you could use either name.

In the case of interchangeable names (where the name could be male or female), that doesn't matter either. If you find the name - regardless of the character gender, you are welcome to use it for either the male or female name.

Does all of that make sense? Does it help?

Yes....that's what I suspected...but wanted to make sure.

How Many Names Can You Find?
Duration:
01/01/18 - 12/31/18

Progress: 47 out of 200

This is a twist on the challenge Joanne posted several years ago, but has since been archived.

Below is a list of male and female names. The challenge is to see how many of these names you can find in one year's time. The challenge begins January 1, 2018 and ends December 31, 2018.

A total of FOUR names can be used per book read...no more. The names can be either character names or author names.

For each book read, please be sure to include a link to the book title, mention the author's name, and the date you finished reading the book.

You sure can, Denise. And if you want to back date to include names from books you've read since Jan 1, you are welcome to. It's alot of work I know, but the choice is your's if you want to do so.

You will need at least 3 posts I think for your tracking...4 might be better.
