What an Animal Reading Challenge

I’ve decided to join Kristi’s What an Animal! reading challenge.

The rules are simple:
1. Read at least 6 books that have any of these requirements:
a. an animal in the title of the book
b. an animal on the cover of the book
c. an animal that plays a major role in the book. a main character that is or turns into an animal (define that however you’d like ;>)).

2. The animal can be any type of animal (real or fictitious)–dog, cat, monkey, wolf, snake, insect, hedgehog, aardvark…dragons, mermaids, centaurs, fairies, vampires…you get the idea…

3. Challenge runs from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009. You can still sign up after July 1st as long as you can get 6 books read by June 30th ;>).

4. Books can be fiction or nonfiction.

5. You may make a list of books at the beginning of the challenge or just list them as you find them.

6. Books may be swapped out at anytime (assuming you made a list to begin with).

7. Crossover books with other challenges is permitted and encouraged.

8. You don’t have to blog or write a review, but you can if you want to.

9. Sign up with Mr. Linky at Kristi's place. Please sign up with the specific post announcing the challenge if you are a blogger. If you do not blog, sign up with your name and leave the URL field blank. Thanks!
10. Have fun!!

Great books Sharon! Thanks for the review of Swine Not? I love Buffett's music, but have yet to read any of his books (although I have several on my TBR pile...sigh...). This one looks like another one for my wish list! ;>)
