Well-Seasoned Reader Challenge

Here's another challenge for 2009. This one looks like a lot of fun and is being hosted by Melissa over at Book Nut. To read the full rules and see who else is participating, click here.

For this 3-month challenge, we need to read 3 books; each one must meet one of the following criteria: (1) have a food name in the title, (2) be about cooking or eating, (3) have a place name in the title, (4) be about someone's travels, (5) be about a specific culture, (6) be written by someone whose ethnicity is different from yours.

This sounds too good to miss. My tentative list is as follows:

  1. House of Blue Mangoes by David Davidar (criterion 1)
  2. Marco Polo: From Venice to Xanadu by Laurence Bergreen (criterion 4)
  3. Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George (criterion 5)
I may change my mind, but I think these are books I'll read.

That does sound look a good challenge. I'm trying not to jump into too many new ones right now, because I'm having trouble completing the 2 I'm already in.
