Ashley (readerandwriter) I thought I start a new game. Heres how it is played. You give 4 clues that can help name the book. Whoever names the right book gets to give 4 clues for another book. If no one can name the book then the person who made up the 4 clues makes up another 4 clues to a different book. Make sense? Let me start the game off with an easy one.

1. Wizards&Witches
2. 7 years
3. A train
4. Magic

Name This Book

message 33: by Shawnee (new)

Shawnee (icedream) | 42 comments Fenixbird,
My guess for your clues is

message 36: by Amy (new)

Amy (ldtchr) | 33 comments Nope, afraid not.

message 37: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie maybe, Ldtchr you should give us new clues and the title to that other book:)
