There was a sheep, a mice, a mamba, an a mockingbird and some flies in my reading list. I read 5 out of the required 6 of the Animal Reading Challenge.
Socrates of Socrates’ Book Reviews is hosting the What An Animal III Reading Challenge. The full rules are on the challenge web page. The Challenge runs from March 1, 2010 to February 28, 2011.
The Requirement is to read at least 6 books that have any of the following requirements:
a. there is an animal in the title of the book
b. there is an animal on the cover of the book
c. an animal plays a major role in the book
d. a main character is (or turns into) an animal (define that however you’d like).
These are what I read this year:
- A Wild Sheep Chase, Haruki Murakami
- Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck
- Black Mamba Boy by Nadifa Mohamed
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Upon quick check at my shelf, I have acquired a few animal title books this year that could have qualified for the challenge:
The next challenge will start March 1, 2011, do hop off toAnimal Challenge IV to sign-up if you want. As for me I have enough of hunting for animal titles last year. I’ll pass for this year.
