Sayuri_x I have no clue....

Dina I can't vote. I haven't read any of these books.

Yes you can, Dina. Pretend these are on closeout and judge by the covers what you think you or someone else might like. You can "open them up" by checking out the info on each and, heck, they're only 5 dollars for 4 titles !

I can make such rules, I am the list-maker. (sound of trumpets blowing)


message 4: by Reese (new)

Reese Why not add books that you have read? Think about familiar books that have titles with words such as
"last," "next," "end," "final," comparative & superlative forms of adjectives ("less," "more," "richer," "best," "worst,"
"smallest," "tallest," "youngest," etc. , etc., etc.), or ordinal numbers ("first," "second," "third"
. . .).

Well, I had thought maybe a list called something like "Up and Down" or "Higher and Lower"....and we'd start with Camus' The Myth of Sisyphus.

Reese Perfect -- instructions that take you wherever you like to hang out -- from the lobby to the penthouse. (Fragment)
Thom, I do love your sense of humor -- seriously. (Sentence)


message 7: by Amalie (new)

Amalie This is quite interesting.
