In Maria’s Naming Conventions Challenge, you choose books to read based on the letters in your first name. There are three tracts, and you can do any or all of them. They are:
- Authors whose last name begins with the letter.
- Authors whose first name begins with the letter.
- Book titles that begin with the letter.
I’m going to do all three, but only because I can use books that I’m reading for other challenges! Here are my picks:
Last Updated: 2/15/09
Tract 1: Author Last Name
J: Juster, Norton – The Phantom Tollbooth
Atwood, Margaret – The Handmaid’s Tale
Iles, Greg – Third Degree
Moran, Michelle – Nefertiti
Evanovich, Janet – Plum Spooky
Tract 2: Author First Name
Joanne Fluke – Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder

Tract 3: Book Title

This challenge doesn’t start until September 1, and it goes for one month per each letter in your name, so for me it ends February 1, 2009.
