What's in a Name Challenge...

A couple of years ago when I decided I wasn't reading enough, and then I decided I needed to learn to read while on a bus, and then I decided I needed to read other things than I would normally read I found this challenge.  Beth is the hostess for the What's in a Name Challenge.  I had a great time finding books to fit the categories, it even becomes a family affair, I make a wish list, and the hunt is on... I finished the challenge this year.

  Number 84 Charing Cross, DONE

Jewelry/Gem, Emerald Atlas, DONE

Size- Giant's Bread, Mary Westmacott, (Agatha Christie) DONE

Travel/ Movement- The Girl Who Chased the Moon, DONE

Evil - Out Stealing Horses, DONE

Life Stage- Child of the Northern Spring, Persia Woolley, DONE, WOW! way to go Persia.

I've copied my list above.  If you are unable to link to the review, so sorry, just learning the ropes of all the gadgets on the computer.  Who would have thought a stay at home mom would be able to do any of this.  Many times as I'm posting my reviews, such as they are, my son is sitting next to me with his ever encouraging words, of " you know how to do this".  Couldn't you just smack them sometimes, I'm sure we had many a tear when I said those words to them when they were learning the multiplication tables.  At any rate, I loved this challenge and hope to be as successful in the next.  Thank You to Beth for hosting.


Annie said... are very good keeping up with your challenges Irene. It almost inspires me, but I would be afraid I would get nothing else done...which is probably much the same as what gets done now!
