Challenge: What's in a Name? 2

I've joined this challenged for 2009. The challenge is hosted by Debi. For the complete rules and the other participants, click here. The challenge is to read 6 books, one each in the following categories.

  1. A book with a profession in the title -- Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly (mystery)
  2. A book with a time of day in the title -- The Dead of the Night by John Marsden (kind of a fantasy)
  3. A book with a relative in the title -- The Marsh King's Daughter by Elizabeth Chadwick (historical novel)
  4. A book with a body part in the title -- A Needle in the Right Hand of God by R. Howard Bloch (historical fiction about the Bayeux tapestry)
  5. A book with a building in the title -- Teahouse Fire by Ellis Avery (historical fiction)
  6. A book with a medical condition in the title -- In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson (nonfiction; travel)
I reserve the right to change my mind and substitute books! Thanks, Debi, for hosting this challenge.

These challenges become addictive...or they have for me.

I'm glad you joined in on the fun. I, of course, have completely no self control and have joined every challenge that I've come across. I need all the incentive I can get to read 100 books in a year.

This looks like a good one! I have to organize my challenge lists for 2009, as I think I'll be joining you with "what's in a name"

Thanks for visiting our WW post. I saw your Bill Bryson title on this challenge and had to laugh. A Walk In The Woods is one of my favorite books. I have yet to read any of his others. Curious to see how you like this one.
