Challenge Complete: Title Fight



Title Fight Button 2016



Bruce at The Bookshelf Gargoyle has challenged us all to put on our gloves and shiny shorts to step into the ring for a title fight in the book world. He gave us seven categories  to fulfill in order to become a heavyweight reading champion. I've completed all the categories and added a little fancy footwork with a bonus book.

The Categories
 
1. A book with something related to fighting in the title:
The Old Battle Axe by Elizabeth Holding Sanxay (3/17/16)
2. A book with someone’s title in the title:
Which Doctor by Edward Candy (1/28/16)
3. A book with onomatopoeia in the title:
The Black Rustle by Constance & Gwenyth Little(2/22/16)
4. A book with an object you might find in a boxing gym in the title:
Poacher's Bag by Douglas Clark (2/19/16)
5. A book with an injury (or a word related to or implying an injury) in the title:
The Bachelors of Broken Hill by Arthur W. Upfield (2/24/16)
6. A book with an emotion in the title:
 Make Death Love Me by Ruth Rendell (3/1/16)
7. A book with a word or phrase implying victory in the title:
 The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont by Robert Barr (1/30/16)

Bonus: The Big Smoke by Adrian Matejka [a book of poems about the life of Jack Johnson, the first African American heavy weight world champion]

Sergio, I try to make sure that most of my books will count for multiple challenges (especially mystery challenges!).
