Here are the details copied from Socrates's Book Review Blog:
The What an Animal Reading Challenge V ends on February 28, 2013. I'm starting the new challenge a bit earlier because I want the begin and end dates to be the same as my other challenges (it's easier for me to remember). So, the What An Animal Reading Challenge V will still end in February, so if you haven't completed it, you still have time. However, for anyone who wants to start the next animal reading challenge, What An Animal Reading Challenge VI will begin on January 1st. Read on for more details...
✰ Read at least 6 books that have any of the following requirements:
✰ there is an animal in the title of the book
✰ there is an animal on the cover of the book
✰ an animal plays a major role in the book
✰ a main character is (or turns into) an animal (define that however you'd like).
✰ The animal can be any type of animal (real or fictitious)--dog, cat, monkey, wolf, snake, insect, hedgehog, aardvark...dragon, mermaid, centaur, vampire, werewolf...you get the idea...
✰ Challenge runs from Januar 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. That’s a full year to read at least 6 books (you can read more if you’d like).
4. Books can be fiction or nonfiction.
✰ You may make a list of books at the beginning of the challenge or you can just list them as you find them.
✰ Book titles may be swapped out at anytime (assuming you made a list to begin with).
✰ Crossovers with other challenges are permitted and encouraged.
✰ You don't have to have a blog or write a review, but you can if you want to. If you don't have a blog, just post in the comment section that you'd like to join. You can post your books in there.
✰ Books can be in any format of your choice (print, audio, ebooks)

I'm planning on reading 5 books for this challenge but if I can read more than that I will.
