What’s In A Name 2016



I've never taken part in a reading challenge before. When I stumbled upon What's In a Name, I decided to give it a try. Here it goes: 

The basics

The challenge runs from January to December. During this time you choose a book to read from each of the following categories (examples of books you could choose are in brackets – I’ve included some from other languages, and translations most definitely count!):

  • A country (try not to use ‘Africa’!) Suggestions: Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn, Xiaolu Guo’s I Am China, Martin Wagner’s Deutschland)
  • An item of clothing (Su Dharmapala’s Saree, Ann Brashare’s The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants, Javier Moro’s El Sari Rojo; Pierre Lemaitre’s Vestido De Novia)
  • An item of furniture (Marghanita Laski’s The Victorian Chaise-Longue; C S Lewis’s The Silver Chair; Goslash;hril Gabrielsen’s The Looking-Glass Sisters)
  • A profession (Adriana Trigiani’s The Shoemaker’s Wife; Mikhail Elizarov’s The Librarian)
  • A month of the year (Elizabeth Von Arnim’s The Enchanted April; Rhoda Baxter’s Doctor January)
  • A title with the word ‘tree’ in it (Ai Mi’s Under The Hawthorn Tree; Elle Newmark’s The Sandalwood Tree)

More information on the challenge can be found at The Worm Hole.


My list


  • A country: Murder in Mesopotamia - Agatha Christie
  • An item of clothing: The Greatcoat - Helen Dunmore
  • An item of furniture: The Mirror of the Sea - Joseph Conrad
  • A profession: The Fencing Master - Arturo Pérez-Reverte
  • A month of the year: The October Country - Ray Bradbury
  • A title with the word ‘tree’ in it: The Baron in the Trees - Italo Calvino

The list may of course change.

Nikoli še nisem sodelovala v bralnem izzivu ali kakor koli že to prevedeš. Kljub temu me je tu in tam imelo, da bi. Tega sem našla zgolj slučajno in mi je bil takoj všeč. Pravila so enostavna: izbereš si šest knjig glede na besede v naslovu. Nalsov mora vsebovati državo / deželo, oblačilo, pohištvo, poklic, mesec v letu in besedo drevo. Ko prebereš, objaviš svojo oceno, vtis ali prosti spis na blogu The Worm Hole. Če koga zanima kaj več, je tam vse zapisano.

Seznam za branje imam, samo še na 2016 je treba počakati.
