Leslie | 15985 comments 1. The title of the book cited must have one word, at least, which is the same as a word in the previous title.

2. The repeated word in the new title must not be an article ("a," "an," or "the").

3. The repeated word must be spelled exactly as the word was spelled in the previous title, e.g., "prune" is not the same word as "prunes," and "loyal" is not the same word as "loyalty."

4. A hyphenated word is one word, not two, e.g., "thunder-clouds," and if used must be repeated in full, not in part only.

5. The repeated word must be in the title as shown in a Goodreads edition, or on the title page of the book. A sub-title or a series name can be included if the sub-title or series name is included in the title of a Goodreads listing, or is printed on the title page of the book.

6. Please play on the most recent correct post. If that isn't the most recent post, a short explanation of why not would be helpful. Please verify that no one else has posted while you were preparing your post.

7. Try not to repeat titles already used on current thread.

8. If you have read the book it would be informative that you so indicate and tell when you read it, if you can.

9. Try to use the Goodreads title & author links.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce

Force fed in school and couldn't understand it at all. Tried again recently and loved it! Hubby even read Ulysses and read bits out to me. This a step too far ....so far.

Tweedledum  (tweedledum) | 2023 comments What a pity. Anne Frank's dairy deserves to be read properly. Perhaps you will have a chance to read it as an adult.
