Rivers

... in book titles or on book covers.

(Fiction and nonfiction are both OK, but please go easy on the geography stuff -- and please note that for book title entries, the word "river" or the name of a river should actually appear in the title itself!)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Why Winesburg, Ohio? I don't see a river on the cover.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) No, but Ohio is both the name of a state and that of a river.


message 3: by Hayes (new)

Hayes Someone found copies of Twain with the river on the covers; thank you. Mine both have other pictures.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) You're welcome! :)

Thom Dunn "Big Two-Hearted River"...a Hemingway short story.

I tried to add Sokolov's other book--The Don Flows Home to the Sea, but it wouldn't come up.

Lobstergirl There's Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving. Haven't read it, myself.

That's because it's merged with "Quiet Flows the Don." Are they the same book, or different? If they're different then the merging should be undone.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I'll undo it -- oh man, someone has REALLY messed up the Shokolov books! Thanks for bringing this up ...

Drat. Whatever it is, it's a Sony release and therefore blocked online for us poor souls living in Germany! (It wouldn't have been CCR's "Rollin' down the River," would it??)

:O)))


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Oh well. Thanks for the good intentions, in any event!!

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Thanks for the extra special thought! Alas ... :( (I think YouTube has an agreement with Sony to block any and all clips with Sony content when clicked on from somewhere in Germany. Too bad! Oh well ...) So I'm just going to have to imagine hearing it! :)


message 17: by Hayes (new)

Hayes That's blocked too? Rats!! Usually these things are blocked in Italy... very strange.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) And they say the internet is the land of unlimited possibilities ...

Tell me about it. I thought there were FIVE (5) books in Shokolov's epic. BTW, I held text for a blind proofreader of The Don Flows Home to the Sea and looked forward to reading it straight...if I can find it.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) We'll, I've at least separated out the "Don Flows Home to the Sea" volumes and those specifying that they're only a partial edition ("vol. 3 of 5" or some such thing). And I've also added "The Don Flows Home to the Sea" to this list ...

Holding text for a blind proofreader -- sounds interesting! Was this in Braille then? (How exactly does this work anyway?)

My boss, Sandy Brezhinsky, blind since childhood (glaucoma), would have a stack of Braille to work from big as 6 telephone books, I would have the book. She would work through the Braille reading out loud while I looked for any variance in the book. After a while we would switch. She could read Braille as fast as I could read the print aloud. We worked in her kitchen. She had cats who would jump up on the table often. She would know which cat had come by the slight variation in the table vibrations. All in all, a great experience for me.


message 22: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Looks like the cover of Tom Sawyer (#6) got changed - no river on it.


message 23: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl "Leaves of Grass" @60? Did that once have a river on it?


message 24: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl State of Wonder #98?


message 25: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Beloved #111?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Lobstergirl wrote: "Looks like the cover of Tom Sawyer (#6) got changed - no river on it."

Yes -- I'm going to leave it for the time being at least, since the cover we all originally voted for had th Mississippi on it (and who knows these days, maybe the default cover is going to get changed to something with a river on it yet again). And at least the Mississippi is prominent feature/quasi-character in the book itself.

But thanks for pointing out the others; removed them all!

And thanks for all the likes on this list ...


message 27: by Vicki (new)

Vicki Re: message 2, about Ohio being both a state and a river. This seems like a slippery slope to me, since that is also true for Illinois, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, Colorado, and I think maybe Connecticut, too. In Winesburg, Ohio, it's obviously being used as the state name.
