Themed Reading Challenge

The Themed Reading Challenge for 2009 is being hosted by Wendy here.

It runs from 1st February 2009 to 31st July 2009

Here are the guidelines:

  • Books should be chosen from the reader’s TBR pile (physical or virtual).
  • The goal is to read 4 to 6 books linked by theme.
  • Overlaps with other challenges are allowed.
  • Readers may change their list of books at any time.
  • Readers may choose three different levels of participation:
    • Read at least 4 books with the same theme.
    • Read at least 5 books that share at least TWO themes.
    • Read at least 6 books that share MORE than two themes.

I couldn’t resist the chance to work my way through my library trying to out a theme together.

What emerged was four books by 20th century British women writers with birds in the title:

  1. The Swan in the Evening by Rosamond Lehmann
  2. Pigeon Pie by Nancy Mitford
  3. The Doves of Venus by Olivia Manning
  4. Nightingale Wood by Stella Gibbons

I plan to turn the titles to links once I have read and reviewed and I’ll track progress in my sidebar.
