Cassandra | 5898 comments Welcome to the challenge, everyone!

Karina, as far as I'm concerned, you can be as creative as you like with what fits in each category. I figure it's like the group read nominations - if you can make a decent case for it, it fits.


message 14: by ZaraS (last edited Dec 17, 2014 05:30PM) (new)

ZaraS  *book reviewer | 2353 comments Please count me in.


Question: when you say; "Read a book that contains a word in the title that fits each of the 25 categories below" You don't actually mean that all 25 categories need to be in the title of one ("a") book do you?
