From the challenge page:
- Basically, the idea is to read nine books in each of the colors assigned. The book can have the color or a shade of the color in the title and/or on the book cover. So, for example, for blue, a book that has blue (or a shade of blue) in the title or the book cover.
This is a fixed number challenge, so I will be attempting to read and review nine books by color. I will add book titles to the list as I pick them up, and I will link the reviews as I post them.
List of books read for this challenge:
- P.J. O'Rourke, How the Hell Did This Happen? (Blue)
- David Gonzales and Elliot Serrano, Homies. (Red)
- Norman Ohler, Blitzed. (Yellow)
- David Liss, et.al., Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon.(Green)
- Melanie Marquis, The Modern Spellcaster's Tarot. (Book and deck set) (Brown) (review forthcoming)
- Colin Dickey, Ghostland. (Black)
- Jancis Robinson, The 24-Hour Wine Expert (White)
- Jennifer Adams, Emma: an Emotions Primer. (Book with any other color: purple, orange, silver, etc.) (Pink).
- Rebecca Hankins and Miguel Juarez, Where are all the librarians of color? (Book with a word that implies color: rainbow, polka-dot, plaid, stripe, etc.)
Update note (11/30/17): Challenge completed. The Tarot book is the last item, and I will link the review when I finish writing it. I have to admit, this was fun, but it was also a bit more challenging than I expected, especially for categories 8 and 9. Still, this is one I will definitely do next year if offered.
