What's in a Name Two


I had so much fun participating in the original challenge that I decided to join again this year.  Since I swapped out so many books last year, I decided to leave the categories open.  I may fill them in when I return to Seattle and have full access to my bookshelf.  For now, I like the way it seems like my possibilities are endless.  Next year the new Challenge is to read one book from each of 6 different categories between January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009:

A book with a “profession” in its title.  Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. I finished this in February; even though the challenge is officially over, I still want to finish.  You can read my review here.

A book with a “time of day” in its titleCurious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon. I finished the selection in November 2009. You can read my review here.

A book with a “relative” in its title. The Japanese Wife by Kunal Basu you can read my review here.

A book with a “body part” in its title. Their Eyes were Watching Godby Zora Neal Hurston. You can find my review here.

A book with a “building” in its titleHouse and Home by Kathleen McCleary; I finished it on September 1st. You can read my review here.

A book with a “medical condition” in its title. Blindsight by Robin Cook; I finished the book sometime in October, I think.  However, I posted my review in November and you can read it here.

I continue to be awed that the host is only 12 years old! When I was that age, I was sumberged in reading the babysitter's club!
