What is Simply...Challenging?

In brief, Simply...Challenging is my challenge blog. Here, I'm only listing the reading (and 1 writing) challenges I am/have taken part in, as well as book lists for each. My reviews are posted at Goodreads. Yes, it seems weird, but right now, it works for me. ;)

What An Animal Reading Challenge

1 March 2011 - 29 February 2012

Yvonne at Socrates' Book Review is once again hosting the What An Animal Reading Challenge (number 4).

The goal is to read 6 (at least) books - fiction or non-fiction - that have...
* an animal in the title; and/or
* an animal on the cover; and/or
* an animal in a major role; and/or
* a major character that shifts into an animal

The animal in question can be anything, including (in Yvonne's words) "dog, cat, monkey, wolf, snake, insect, hedgehog, aardvark...dragon, mermaid, centaur, vampire, werewolf...". 

What a list!  I'm sure I can find something that fits those guidelines! :)

Titles will be stroked out as they are read (or replaced as needed).
1.  Mousenet by Prudence Breitrose; ill. by Stephanie Yue (mice)
2.  The Haunted Castle by Geronimo Stilton (mice)
3.  The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks (vampire)
4.  Casting Spells by Barbara Bretton (sorceress, amongst others)
5.  Winner Takes All by Jacqueline Rayner (porcupines/aliens)
6.  Sharkpedia by Nancy Ellwood (sharks)
