Booking thru Thursday - unique sorting


Browsing through my blog, I found a link to this post about the "Sorted Book Project." Go read it. I’ll wait.
The idea is to take a few books and physically sort them in such a way that the titles make some kind of sense … something that I’ve never quite gotten around to doing and photographing, but which fascinates me.
What title/combinations can you come up with? (Bonus points if you actually assemble the books and photograph them, like in the original post.)
This was just too much fun not to try. Though I get my books from the library I do have a stack of books waiting to come home with me (patience, Baila). So I did two stacks of sorted books. The first is titled professions:

In case you can't read the titles they're: The Poet, The Cellist of Sarajevo, The Piano Tuner, and The Sportswriter.

My second stack could not be more appropriate for a day that saw the deaths of both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson.



This picture unfortunately didn't come out as clearly so here are the titles of the books:
Die Trying
Everything Changes
Gone, Baby, Gone
Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral
Long Way Down
How to Talk to a Widower
Plan B

If you'd like to participate in Booking thru Thursday, post your sorted books on your blog and leave a comment on the BTT Web site.

Very creative combinations!

I knew Farrah was ill, but I was shocked about Michael Jackson. Very sad.

I was shocked about Michael Jackson, too. One deathly news for a day should be enough, apparently not.

Two deaths are real shocking news. I grew up on MJs music.

Heatwave reading

First clever then timely. Great work!

Seems so strange that Michael Jackson is dead. Was astounded that he was 50 too. Think I will watch that Thriller dance scene in 13 Going On 30 this weekend just for fun.
