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:
The Swan in the Evening by Rosamond Lehmann
Pigeon Pie by Nancy Mitford
The Doves of Venus by Olivia Manning
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.
