The Color-Coded Reading Challenge 2012

So glad to do this one again in 2012! I actually have a few books on hand that will count, which is a bonus, and some of the others will likely come from the book series that I intend to look into this year.  For some reason it was really fun to find books for this challenge last year and I look forward to doing it again. If you'd like to join this challenge, the link is here.

Here are the rules:

*Read nine books in the following categories.

1. A book with "Blue" in the title. The Blue Place - Nicola Griffith
2. A book with "Red" in the title. My Name Is Red - Orhan Pamuk
3. A book with "Yellow" in the title. Yellow Crocus - Laila Ibrahim
4. A book with "Green" in the title. How Green Was My Valley - Richard Llewellyn
5. A book with "Brown" in the title. Young Goodman Brown and Other Tales - Nathaniel Hawthorne
6. A book with "Black" in the title. The Black Opera - Mary Gentle
7. A book with "White" in the title. The Devil in the White City - Erik Larson
8. A book with any other color in the title (Purple, Orange, Turquoise, Pink, Magneta, etc.). The Man in the Gray Flannel Skirt - Jon-Jon Goulian
9. A book with a word that implies color (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Paisley, Stripe, etc.). The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

I found some interesting books last year just because of the color in the title, so I look forward to doing that again.


  1. So glad to be able to put it together and have folks interested again. Good luck with it!
