CHALLENGE: What an Animal!

Kristi at Passion for the Page is hosting her first challenge. It looks easy enough once I checked my pile of books around here. Do you like animals?

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
d. 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, 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 below. 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!!

I'm looking at:
1. The Camel Bookmobile by Masha Hamilton
2. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
3. The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga
4. Crow Lake by Mary Lawson
5. Maus 1 & II by Art Speigelman
6. Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson


  1. That's a great list of books, raidergirl! Can't wait to hear what you think of them. Welcome to the challenge ;>)!

  2. I've only read Crow Lake and thought it was only ok - everyone else in the world seemed to have loved it though so I'm curious to see what you make of it!

  3. Water for Elephants was a great book. I hope you enjoy it as well.
