Charlie who hosts the What’s In A Name challenge on her blog The Worm Hole has added a a 6th category to the challenge. I was hoping she would as there has always been a 6th category for this challenge. Here it is in Charlie’s own words:
A book with a school subject in the title. And yes, that does mean you can get creative and use a magical academic subject if you wish €“ Hogwarts is a school, after all.
Examples of books you can choose: The History Boys by Alan Bennett, Angelology by Danielle Trussoni, Mastering The Art Of Soviet Cooking by Anya Von Bremzen
This sixth category will be considered a bonus. You can read for it or not €“ if you only want to read for the original five categories your last book of the five will still mean you have completed this year’s challenge.
I’ve had a quick look at my unread books (as I like to use challenges to read from my own books, rather than having to buy/borrow them) and have these to choose from:
The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier
A Small Part of History by Peggy Elliott
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
A Dead Language by Peter Rushforth
Italian Neighbours: An Englishman in Verona by Tim Parks
An Equal Music by Vikram Seth
The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare by James Shapiro
A Time To Dance, No Time To Weep by Rumer Godden
