*I should be wrapping presents*
I came across another reading challenge this morning, the What's In a Name Challenge! So instead of doing the things I should be doing, I (once again) found myself making a list.
*The Challenge: Choose one book from each of the following categories.
1. A book with a "profession" in its title.
The Short History of a Prince by Jane Hamilton
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Blessed Are the Cheesemakers by Sarah Kate-Lynch
The Last Witchfinder by James Morrow
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (reread)
The Postman Always Rings Twice by James Morrow
2. A book with a "time of day" in its title.
Bright Angel Time by Martha McPhee
The Servants of Twilight by Dean R. Koontz
3. A book with a "relative" in its title.
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire
Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
4. A book with a "body part" in its title.
The Body Project by Joan Jacobs Brumberg (I started it a few years ago & never finished)
Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut
5. A book with a "building" in its title.
Blackbird House by Alice Hoffman
Joy School by Elizabeth Berg
Last Chance Saloon by Marian Keyes
The Mineral Palace by Heidi Julavits
6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title.
(This one's a stretch, and I've already read Love in the Time of Cholera)
Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding
I wonder which books will make the cut in 2009...
Here is the website in case you want to do it too: http://whatsinaname-2.blogspot.com/
