CHALLENGE: What's in a Name? 2

Annie is hosting the What's in a Name Challenge again, with all new categories. I like making a list with a few options for each category. there is a new blog with all the details, but basically, 6 books throughout the year, chosen from the following six categories. I must head over and see some other suggestions of titles for the categories. Some seem harder to find titles for, but I haven't been looking for very long.

A book with a "profession" in its title:
In the Company of the Courtesan
Teacher Man, Frank McCourt

A book with a "time of day" in its title:
The Smell of the Night by Andrea Camilleri June 14/09
Late Nights on Air
When Twilight Burns

A book with a "relative" in its title:
The Sister by Poppy Adams June 30/09
The Seven Daughters of Eve
When We Were Orphans
Cain His Brother, Anne Perry

A book with a "body part" in its title:
Remembering the Bones - Frances Itani Feb 28/09
The Left Hand of Darkness

A book with a "building" in its title:
The House at Riverton
The Wheel on the School
The View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro July 4/09

A book with a "medical condition" in its title:
Girlfriend in a Coma

This looks like a fun challenge, but I haven't completed any this year, so...I don't know...

Cool I didn't have a chance to check out the new catagories yet. I have one more left to read for this year and will see if what IU have on my list for next year fits in. The only one I have read is The House at Riverton so will look forward to your reviews.

bybee - it's just about the lists for me. Whether I finish or not is beside the point. And Annie is so cute, how can you not join? But don't stress yourself out, it's all for fun.

rhinoa - exactly, I just picked books that I have already or that I already want to read. New categories are fun.
