What's in a Name book Challenge

Bingo over at Bookin with Bingo is hosting this challenge. I thought I would give it a try.

*The Challenge: Choose one book from each of the following categories to read this year. As you read them keep track of the titles and when you have done them all, report back. There is no OFFICIAL prize other than the sense of accomplishment.....well, maybe one or two little treats to the first who finish and some surprise prizes in between now and DECEMBER. I think it will be great fun! I will put little reminders in every so often to keep people working on this!

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 in THIS CHALLENGE!

*You don't need to decide exactly which books you will be reading ahead of time, though you're certainly welcome to. To join enter here

I have not decided which ones I want to read for this challenge sp, as I read the books. I will list them.

Hi, Cheryl!
You are one of the 4 who signed up with me on my blog to do this challenge. I investigated it and spoke with Annie's mom, Debi. She was very nice about it and as soon as I found out that this is where this challenge came from today (I wish I had seen her comment to you or that she had let me know sooner) I decided to contact you all and then to shut it down on my site. I still have the challenge button on my blog and it now links directly to Annie's blog. It is also where I will be doing the challenge. Good for Annie and good for me to know. I had seen the button so many places with rules and it never dawned on me that it belonged to someone else or at least was their "baby". I have in looking today, seen others similar to it but those people can do as they please. I just wanted to let people who visited my blog way back when about it, know that this is what happened. I hope you are doing it with Annie as it is a great challenge! Thanks Cheryl and come by and check out all the great giveaways I have going right now..this March Madness theme is just that--MADNESS! LOL,
Bingo (AKA Karen)
