reading challenge: what's in a name 2?

As the new year fast approaches, I've worked up many possibilities for the categories for this year's What's in a Name Challenge? Although this list may change, here are my current ideas:

1. A book with a "profession" in its title:
  • The Love Artist by Jane Alison
  • The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta
  • The Fireman's Wife by Jack Riggs
  • Priest by Ken Bruen
2. A book with a "time of day" in its title:
  • The Midnight Diary of Zoya Blume by Laura Shaine Cunningham
3. A book with a "relative" in its title:
  • The Sisters Antipodes by Jane Alison

4. A book with a "body part" in its title:
  • Keep Your Mouth Shut and Wear Beige by Kathleen Gilles Seidel (finished 1/3/09)
5. A book with a "building" in its title:
  • Open House by Elizabeth Berg
  • The House at Riverton by Kate Morton
  • The Hotel New Hampshire by John Irving
6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title:
  • Death du Jour by Kathy Reichs
  • Heart Trouble by Kathy Hogan Trocheck
I only have to read one per category, and I've given myself lots of options. I'm looking forward to starting this challenge.
