I've noticed that there are a lot of random name generators charts. They can be quite fun. They can also become a reading challenge!

Using the chart, create yourself (or a loved one, friend, or pet) a new name. Read a book that is somehow associated with that new name. It's as easy as that :)

You can read more than one book for your new name, or you can go back and create a bunch of new names and read books for those names. It's your decision. Just have fun!

No page limit.
Re-reads and audio books are okay.
Be sure to date and rate your book.
Duration: June 1 - 30, 2020

I'm always impressed by food trucks. It's amazing how they can fit cooks, supplies, and equipment into a small area and still mange to feed people.

Would you ever want to own one? Here's your chance to at least name one :)
