What’s in a Name 2 Challenge

>> Sunday, December 28, 2008


I loved Annie’s clever What’s in a Name Challenge this year and was happy to see she’s tweaked it a bit to keep it fresh for 2009.

Here's the scoop on the What's in a Name 2 Challenge

*Dates: January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009

*The Challenge: Choose one book from each of the following categories.

1. A book with a "profession" in its title. Examples might include: The Book Thief, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Historian

2. A book with a "time of day" in its title. Examples might include: Twilight, Four Past Midnight, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

3. A book with a "relative" in its title. Examples might include: Eight Cousins, My Father's Dragon, The Daughter of Time

4. A book with a "body part" in its title. Examples might include: The Bluest Eye, Bag of Bones, The Heart of Darkness

5. A book with a "building" in its title. Examples might include: Uncle Tom's Cabin, Little House on the Prairie, The Looming Tower

6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title. Examples might include: Insomnia, Coma, The Plague

*You may overlap books with other challenges, but please don't use the same book for more than one category.


These are the books I’ve chosen to read for this challenge:

Profession –
The Bookman’s Wake by John Dunning
Time of Day –
Murder on a Girl’s Night Out by Anne George
Relative –
Aunt Dimity Digs In by Nancy Atherton
Body Part –
Buried Bones by Carolyn Haines
Building –
Hammerhead Ranch Motel by Tim Dorsey
Medical Conditiion –
Delusion by G.H. Ephron

Thanks for hosting this one again Annie. I love the new categories.

Good choices! This was one of the few I will be joining in 2009. I loved choosing last year and was happy to see the challenge up again for 2009.

I hope you enjoy Murder On A Girl's Night Out as much as I did. Good luck with the challenge!

Literary Feline: I've seen several positive reviews so I'm looking forward to that one.
