What's in a Name 5: Sign Up

Welcome to the fifth What's in a Name challenge This challenge was originated by a young blogger named Annie, who hosted it for two years. When she decided to give up on being the host, I took over the challenge.

I credit this challenge with being one of the prime reasons for my becoming a blogger, so I am thrilled to be its new host.

Here's How It Works

Between January 1 and December 31, 2012, read one book in each of the following categories:

  1. A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title: Black Hills, Purgatory Ridge, Emily of Deep Valley
  2. A book with something you'd see in the sky in the title: Moon Called, Seeing Stars, Cloud Atlas
  3. A book with a creepy crawly in the title: Little Bee, Spider Bones, The Witches of Worm
  4. A book with a type of house in the title: The Glass Castle, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Ape House
  5. A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title: Sarah's Key, The Scarlet Letter, Devlin Diary
  6. A book with a something you'd find on a calendar in the title: Day of the Jackal, Elegy for April, Freaky Friday, Year of Magical Thinking
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

Other Things to Know

  • Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
  • Books may overlap other challenges.
  • Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
  • Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed but encouraged.
  • You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
  • You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
On January 1, I'll publish 7 posts, each with a Mr. Linky (one for each category and one for your wrap-up post), on this blog so you'll have a place post links to your reviews (bloggers) or leave comments (non-bloggers) as you finish up each category. You'll be able to find these posts during the year by clicking on the button in the sidebar. (I'll create those links on January 1.)

Tip: If you're ever struggling to find a title to match a category, check out what other people have read so you can get ideas or be inspired. And remember to be creative.

To join in, sign up with Mr. Linky below. If you aren't a blogger, just add a comment. If Mr. Linky ever disappears, either try again later or click on Email Icon in the side bar and send me your information, and I'll add the link myself.

To use Mr. Linky: put your name or your blog's name in the top box and the URL (web address) of your blog in the bottom box. If you don't have a blog, use your tumblr account, your Facebook page or simply mention your intent to join the challenge in the comments.

Thanks to @DogEaredCopy, @marny_h96, @Zetablue, and @SuziQoregon for suggestions for, inspiration for, and confirmation of this year's categories. Feel free to suggest ideas for 2013 in the comments.

It's never too late to join!

I hope you like the categories! Have fun and good luck.

Sounds like fun! I'm in!

Anonymous,  11/14/11, 6:40 AM  

You came up with some really good categories - I'm in!

Jacqui 11/14/11, 6:45 AM  

Already thinking about what I could put in my categories. Thanks.

Gnoe 11/14/11, 6:47 AM  

OMG I so totally failed #4! Revanche in the new year! Thanks for hosting again Beth! :)

Marny 11/14/11, 7:58 AM  

Looking forward to it :-)

Daryl 11/14/11, 8:19 AM  

Congrats on this .. it sounds fun. I'll think about the commitment I dont want to say I'm in unless I can do the whole thing right ..

Dorte H 11/14/11, 9:03 AM  

Now I have already made up my mind not to fail ... eh participate in any challenges next year, but those categories are great.

Well, we will see how weak I am :)

Debi 11/14/11, 9:04 AM  

I just love so much that you've kept this challenge going. :) Thank you!

Julie 11/14/11, 9:12 AM  

I am so excited for this. I think I have something in my huge TBR pile for all the categories. If not, I'm not adverse to buying. ;)

Thanks for hosting again!

Carrie K. 11/14/11, 9:29 AM  

Great categories - I don't know how you manage to come up with such creative ones every year!

Karen White 11/14/11, 9:49 AM  

Little Bee is on my nightstand pile so I will hold onto it till January!

Nise' 11/14/11, 9:55 AM  

Categories look great! I'm in.

Unknown 11/14/11, 10:24 AM  

Really great categories, and my mind is already racing, thankfully my shelves are full of some that will fit in. You know those ever growing shelves..LOL. Looking forward to seeing other's reads too.

dog eared copy 11/14/11, 11:00 AM  

YAY! I love this Challenge! I can't wait to get home tonight and sort through my books and see what, from my TBR & TBL stax qualifies! I'll be writing up a Letter of Intent so to speak, sometime this week :-)

AlleluiaLu 11/14/11, 11:14 AM  

Sounds great! I'll be back when I've done my post so I can link up. Always enjoy this challenge.

Have a great day!

Buried In Print 11/14/11, 11:37 AM  

Your categories for this year are such fun: yay!

bermudaonion 11/14/11, 11:44 AM  

This will probably be the only challenge I sign up for in 2012, because I bombed them this year. I need to read one more for the What's in a Name 4!

Mary @ Notes in the Margin 11/14/11, 11:46 AM  

Thanks for doing this. As someone else said, I already have at least one book that will fit most of the categories on my TBR list.

Sandy Nawrot 11/14/11, 11:56 AM  

I am always tempted to join this one because it is just so darned clever. I've been anti-challenge here the last year or so, but I'm going to think about it.

Zibilee 11/14/11, 1:00 PM  

Though I don't join many challenges, this one sounds like a lot of fun. I am going to have to consider it!

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks 11/14/11, 1:22 PM  

How fun to see the new categories for WIAN(5)!

Andi 11/14/11, 2:06 PM  

SUCH fun categories!!! I never actually complete everything in this challenge, but I'm still always tempted to sign up!

SuziQoregon 11/14/11, 3:08 PM  

I'm spending way too much time today looking for books I already have that fit categories and then searching the library for others.

I love this challenge.

Will be back to link up when I do my sign up post.

Margot 11/14/11, 4:21 PM  

I'm joining for sure. It's always a challenging challenge for me to find just the right books. Thanks for sponsoring it again.

Sarah Reads Too Much 11/14/11, 5:06 PM  

Love the categories this year!!

Anonymous,  11/14/11, 5:37 PM  

I enjoyed very much your 2011 categories, and can't resist coming for more in 2012, really cool! Thanks for your fun creativity. Emma

Col (Col Reads) 11/14/11, 7:08 PM  

Excellent categories! This Challenge is the reason I started blogging -- of course both Ellie and I are in for next year! Thanks so much for hosting.

Unknown 11/14/11, 8:15 PM  

oh my..I love the categories for this one next year. So creative but doable and fun. I'm going to have to keep my challenges to one or two or three next year and this one is a strong contender!

Bev Hankins 11/14/11, 8:40 PM  

I'm in! Had a great time last year and can't resist the new categories (not to mention, I'm a challenge glutton).

Can't wait for 2012.

Cat 11/14/11, 11:13 PM  

A favourite challenge and love the categories for 2012.

akika 11/15/11, 1:19 AM

I'm really excited to take part in this challenge! Thanks to christina_reads and birdgirl_1107 for advertising it on their Livejournal accounts!

Anonymous,  11/15/11, 5:38 PM  

This challenge tipped me into blogging too. I'm resisting signing up for many things but I can't resist this. So I'm going to have a lovely time rifling through books to put together a list.

Gerbera Daisy Diaries 11/15/11, 10:10 PM  

Haven't selected my 2012 books yet or finished 2011 -- but hopefully I will get it done!

Darlene 11/15/11, 11:55 PM  

I had so much doing the challenge for 2011! Thanks for hosting again!!

By the way, I have an "oops" in my sign-up. I'm #44 - Darlene @ Darlene's Book Nook. I wasn't careful enough and let Mr. Linky pre-fill the fields and the last book I linked up is showing up in brackets behind my blog name. Can you delete the "(Defining Diana)"?


Christine 11/16/11, 7:27 AM  

Yay!!! I'm so excited for this one already and I still have one more book to read for this years! Love these categories! I'll be signing up for sure! :)

Cathy 11/16/11, 4:12 PM  

Fun categories! If I break down and decide to try challenges again, this will definitely be the one!

Farin 11/17/11, 12:26 PM  

Very excited for this.

(Oh, and "Daphne" carried over from another challenge I'm participating in. Stupid form.)

Lady In Read 11/18/11, 1:46 AM  

Sounds like a fun challenge and doable as well! I am in..

Anonymous,  11/18/11, 1:49 AM  

I wouldn't have thought of these categories - so creative!

I'm already looking forward to coming up with my list of books.

Kristi 11/18/11, 11:05 AM  

I love this challenge! I have done it for the past two years and it's so fun trying to find titles to fit the categories.

I'm definitely in again! I'm finished with all of my books for 2011. Now just to get all the reviews up and link them up.

Thanks for hosting!

HulaMonkey 11/18/11, 11:11 AM  

Love the categories - it will be like a scavenger hunt thru my To-Be-Read list of books.
I've notified members of BookTrib where to get info and sign up.
Thanks so much for hosting!

Sharon 11/19/11, 5:43 PM  

I'm looking forward to participating again. I really like the categories!See ya in Jan.

I've signed up. This is going to be good!

Book Dragon 11/25/11, 9:16 PM  

I'll be back later with a link but I wanted to tell you that I look forward to your challenge. Always have trouble with it and for 2011, I think I used a children's book to finish it off ;)

Love when I read a book and then realize it fits in :D

Suzanne McClendon 11/26/11, 7:15 PM  

This sounds like a fun challenge. I look forward to participating. Have a great weekend. :)

Gnoe (@Graasland) 11/27/11, 4:24 PM  

Of course I knew I was going to participate again the minute your post went up! (Where would we be without twitter and rss feeds eh?)

The What's in a name challenge is always one of my favourites! Today I finally got to write my admission post and put it in the Mr Linky - YAY! Now I'd better hurry and finish #4 in time... :-o

Anonymous,  11/27/11, 8:42 PM  

Sounds like fun! I'm in. :)

Anonymous,  11/28/11, 9:32 AM  

In for another year. This time categories are great... but also difficult! I only have one for now, it'll take some time to work them out! Great!

Stacy 12/1/11, 12:04 PM  

Yay! This is the first reading challenge I've ever signed up for, hopefully it doesn't start an addiction!

jeanne 12/2/11, 5:54 PM  

I'm ready for a reading challenge and this one looks very fun. Can't wait till January!

Kim 12/3/11, 1:31 PM  

I am drastically paring down my challenges for 2012, but this is one I was so hoping was going to be offered again! Now I just need to scramble to finish 2011's! :)
Thanks for hosting it again.

Melwyk 12/3/11, 2:01 PM  

Love this challenge! I will be joining up "officially" once I have my challenge post up :)

Christine Harding 12/3/11, 5:23 PM  

I'll have a go but need to refine my list!

Yvonne 12/4/11, 7:39 PM  

I'm in! Sounds like fun.

Kelly 12/5/11, 11:10 AM  

This is only my second time for this challenge, so I'm definitely in! I'm making myself use books I already have, so I may have to get fairly creative to fit one of the categories.

Amy 12/5/11, 1:28 PM  

This challenge was also one of my first experiences with book blogging. I'm glad to find it again!

Rachelle21 12/5/11, 8:50 PM  

I was inspired to start a blog. I don't know how often I'll post but it is started.

Unknown 12/6/11, 3:40 AM  

Sounds interesting! Should be great fun catching up with what others are reading...M in :)

Elizabeth (My Reading World) 12/31/11, 6:09 PM  

We signed up to this last year--but in January both children became very ill (they, unfortunately, even made it on to Real Rescues!) which put our year off to a bad start, so we've decided to re-try for the new year. My two children: Hazel & Kieran will be joining as well!

Janet 1/1/12, 6:06 PM  

Looks like fun! And this time I plan to stick with it. Even motivated me to find a blog I started and forgot about :x
Is it cheating the book I'm reading fits a category already?

Anonymous,  1/1/12, 9:36 PM  

Signed up!! it would be fun to read the categories i have never bothered to read before!!

Unknown 1/2/12, 3:03 AM  

I had fun with looking for titles to fit this challenge last year ... looking forward to participating in it again :-)

Great idea and I look forward to playing around with some titles.

Hilachas 1/7/12, 5:52 PM  

What an interesting project. I love to read as much as I love to quilt.

Great challenge. Can't be too hard, right?

H Lynnea 1/8/12, 2:16 AM  

Wow, some really challenging ones on here! But hopefully it well help me focus on what to read next!

Marg 1/8/12, 3:15 AM  

I studied English Literature at Uni many, many years ago and was a mad keen reader! However, years of children and their needs have made reading history. One of my resolutions for 2012 is to get back into it. Santa brought me an e-reader so it's portable and I can't lose my place. This sounds like a great way to explore reading again. Thanks for hosting.

Serenata 1/8/12, 8:31 AM  

Discovered this thanks to Melody and it ties in well with my idea to do a weekly book review as I love reading so much. Thank you.

Anonymous,  1/8/12, 12:31 PM  

I've never done this challenge before, but it looks fun! I'm looking forward to trying to figure out the books for each category! Thanks for hosting!

Linked1 I m sure it is going to be fun!

Stitchinwitch 1/9/12, 5:57 PM  

I seem to have been neglecting my reading so this looks like a fun challenge to get me back into my bookworm ways :)

Jessica Peter 1/9/12, 8:57 PM  

I'm in! I did this in 2012 and had fun.

Also, a suggestion for 2013: A book with a title in the title (e.g. Married to the Viscount; Dark and Stormy Knights)

Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm 1/10/12, 8:03 AM  

Oh this is wonderful, I'm always trying to find new books to read

Sounds like a really fun challenge with fun categories! I'm in. :)

this is the first time I have ever participated in such a challenge. I am recently retired and am envisioning lots of time to read.

This is my first time in a challenge and I can't wait! I love reading with my toddler & preschooler. Thank you for including us.

ME 2/11/12, 4:31 PM  

Brilliant idea! I'm all signed up :)

Becca 2/19/12, 8:05 PM  

I'm going to give this one a shot. Thanks!

My post is on the linky! :)

I'm coming in a little late, but I have read (since January) one book that matches a category and I love the idea of this challenge. Thanks for hosting!

I am excited to finally return to the land of reading for pleasure, after spending the first few months of 2012 reading for exam prep. Excited for this challenge and thank you for hosting!

I'm excited to be doing this again, even though I've got a late start. Looking forward to what everyone will end up reading!

I really enjoyed doing this last year, hopefully I can keep up with reviews this year!

Hi! If I sign up for this challenge now (since it is better late than never!) could I include any of the titles I have already read in 2012? Thanks in advance!

Beth F 4/18/12, 6:55 AM  

@Wuthering: yes, any book read in 2012 will do, even if you just signed up.

Amber 4/20/12, 8:15 AM  

I am super excited to give this one a try! Can't wait to go exploring at the library!

I wasn't gonna do this challenge in 2012 but I have changed my mind. I just can't stay away from it.

Paula 6/8/12, 9:47 AM  

I did this challenge with Annie the first two years and had no idea that someone else was hosting it! Is it to late to join for this year? Hope not!

Faith @ StudentSpyglass 6/15/12, 11:46 AM  

I've just signed up, and am loving the categories.

I may have to take advantage of the rule that says creativity is encouraged in terms of fitting in titles though!

Thanks for hosting and putting so much thought into this.

Bibliophile 8/29/12, 7:31 AM  

Joining again this year in order to try to regain my will to blog.

Tania 9/20/12, 11:32 AM  

Hi! There's still some time left in 2012, so I'm gonna do this challenge. :)

This looks like fun. Too bad I didn't hear of this sooner. But I'll try to see what I can come up with in the time that's left.
