Judy (patchworkcat) | 2212 comments Nice list, Thing2. I see you are using a lot of your ABC books, or are they all ABC books?


message 3: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) And, there's that The Song of Achilles again. :)

They'll all be ABC books if I can figure out how! No sense double reading ... ;)


message 5: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) I have 16 books left over from my 2012 list and most of them have been slotted into my alphabet challenge. Unfortunately, there are a few that start with C. I'll select just one of them for the alphabet.

Kimberly | 130 comments Fantastic list ThingTwo!
I see some wonderful titles on it and may have to steal a few from your list to add to mine.


message 7: by Thing Two (new)

Thing Two (thingtwo) Thanks, Kimberly!


message 8: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 2212 comments Hubby loves Tin Tin. Did you see the movie? If so, what did you think about it?


message 9: by Thing Two (new)

Thing Two (thingtwo) I haven't. I chose it because of the Anne Frank connection.


message 10: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 2212 comments Okay, I have to ask....? :-)


message 11: by Thing Two (new)

Thing Two (thingtwo) :) She received these books on her last birthday before she went into hiding.

I'm working on a "project" loosely based around Anne Frank, and feel it would be helpful to read the books she so enjoyed.


message 12: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 2212 comments How interesting, Thing2. I hope you will link to your project...what a great idea!


message 13: by Thing Two (new)

Thing Two (thingtwo) When it's published, I'll be sure to mention it on Goodreads ...


message 14: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 2212 comments Make sure to put it some place where I will see it. I really would like to see what you came up with.


message 15: by Thing Two (new)

Thing Two (thingtwo) Ah ... you may have to wait a while. :)
