As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm joining in the challenge again for 2009. Like this year it runs from January to December, and the goal is to read one book in each of six categories. When I first saw the new categories, I thought it would be hard to find books from my TBR stacks that matched. But once I started looking at titles, I found lots! So here are the categories for round two, with a few possibilities of what I might read:
1. A book with a "profession" in its title.
The Historian - Elizabeth Kostova
The Visit of the Royal Physician - Per Olov Enquist
The Gun Seller - Hugh Laurie
2. A book with a "time of day" in its title.
After Dark - Haruki Murakami
The Night Watch - Sarah Waters
The Laws of Evening - Mary Yukari Waters
3. A book with a "relative" in its title.
The Piano Man's Daughter - Timothy Findley
The Distant Land of My Father - Bo Caldwell
To My Daughter in France - Stephanie Keating and Barbara Keating
4. A book with a "body part" in its title.
Twenty-Four Eyes - Sakae Tsuboi
Tooth and Nail - Ian Rankin
Mouthing the Words - Camilla Gibb
5. A book with a "building" in its title.
The Ice Palace - Tarjei Vesaas
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Anne Brontë
A House to Let - Charles Dickens et al.
6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title.
Blindness - José Saramago
The Fat Woman Next Door is Pregnant - Michel Tremblay
Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman - Haruki Murakami
It should be fun! Have you read any of these?
