What's In a Name Challenge 2

Here's my list for the What's in a Name Challenge 2. I had all of these on my shelf and didn't have to buy a single book for this challenge. That tickled me to death!

1. A book with a "profession" in its title. ~ The Story of Doctor Doolittle by Hugh Lofting(1948 Hardback version)

2. A book with a "time of day" in its title. ~ Night Over Water by Ken Follett

3. A book with a "relative" in its title. ~ Daughter of Fortune

4. A book with a "body part" in its title. ~ Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie Macdonald

5. A book with a "building" in its title. ~ The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title. ~ A Day No Pigs Would Die by Robert Newton Peck

It's really fun to go through your stacks and find books that meet the criteria of the challenge. Can't wait to get started, but must wait until January 1.

2008 Back To History Challenge

Good Grief!! I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted on this blog. I've been reading since July - I really have. Can't remember what all I've read but I'm going to try to list some of the Back to History Challenge books that I've read but not done a post on. I think I've read the twelve we were supposed to, although I know I haven't stuck to my original list very well (or at all!)

9) The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom (Really Good!)
10)Little Britches: My Father and I were Ranchers by Ralph Moody (another good one)
11)Judge Sewall's Apology - The Salem Witch Trials by Richard Francis (good, interesting, only a little dry)

Dang. I can't remember. Going to have to go and look through my read stack...

Ah, I remember now, even though it's no longer in my stack since I've passed it on already...

12)Washington's Lady . Another about Martha Washington and Very Good!

Yeah, challenge completed.

Now I'm going to participate in the second year of What's In a Name. I'll post my list soon....
Happy Reading!
