As convener of the ANZ LitLovers Reading group, I've chosen all Aussie and New Zealand titles:

body part -One Foot Wrong by Sophie Laguna and/or The Other Hand by Chris Cleave

relative - Paint Your Wife by Lloyd Jones and/or The Good Parents by Joan London and/or Amy’s Children by Olga Masters

profession - The Zookeeper’s War by Steven Conte and/or Death of a Whaler by Nerida Newton and/or The Warrior Queen by Barbara Else

medical condition - The Blind Eye by Georgia Blain

time of day - The Evening of the Holiday by Shirley Hazzard

building- do rooms count?
The Lovers’ Room by Steven Carroll and/or Windmill Hill by Michael Jacobson

Could you please explain how we blog our progress on this site? Do we 'post' or 'comment'?

PS. I forgot to mention that I'm still on the hunt for the medical condition title.

I'll leave it up to you to decide if "room" is okay or not. Personally, I don't really mind if you use it.

I just added a bunch of Mr. Linkies on my blog, one for each category. If you look on the front page you'll see them. All you have to do is type in your name, the book you read, and the URL of your book review post. That's how you keep track of your progress.

I hope that was helpful!

This looks interesting. Not sure whether I can keep up with a challenge on top of other reading but I would use it to catch up on Aus writers. Here is what I would like to do:

PROFESSION: Marion Halligan's The apricot colonel

BODY PART: Marion Halligan's Wishbone (I reckon this is a body part - after all chooks and turkeys have them - LOL!)

RELATIVE: Elizabeth Jolley's My father's moon, and The Georges wife

MEDICAL CONDITION: Phryne Fisher's Cocaine blues (because I feel I should read one of hers - is this a medical condition do you reckon?)

TIME OF DAY: Marie Bjelke Petersen's Jewelled nights (if I can find it)

BUILDING: M Barnard Eldershaw's A house is built
