A Sixth Category For What’s In A Name 2014

The 2014 What's In A Name reading challenge logo

I published the What’s In A Name challenge without a 6th category. It was forgetfulness on my part and I’m not sure how I managed to not notice it in all the time I was planning. Nevertheless many people have asked for a category, if they can create their own, or if I could come up with a subject for their particular blog.

So I’ve decided to create an official sixth category for this year. Because it hasn’t been available from the start and because I know not everyone will see this post, 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.

Without further ado, here is the sixth, bonus, category for What’s In A Name 2014:

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

Hope you’re all enjoying your books, this reading challenge and others.

And if you’re wishing you had signed up, there is still time, head on over to the sign-up page, fill in your details, and get reading.

Oh, nice. I am glad I noticed this post. I am sure only 5 would have been fine, but this new topic is fun!

Kailana: Glad you like it :)

Emma: I think when I posted to your blog I added ‘university’? I did think about that afterwards, in that it might make it sound harder than I expected. Feel free to be creative!

Beth: Glad you like it and that you’ll be reading for it :)

Margaret: I read your post – thank you for blogging about it, I really don’t know how many people might see the update so the more news the better :) And as said, I like your potential titles!

Jenny: Thanks!
