Do you read colorfully? See if you can fill up a box of crayons with the titles of books you read. Start with good old ROY G. BIV but feel free to add any titles that might have the names of crayons you'd find in a box of Crayola. Exact names or color variations are all acceptable

Pink: A Coral Kiss, coral is a shade of pink
Red: The Fire Rose, while it is referring to the flower here, you can use it as a shade of red.
Orange: Blood Orange, again this refers to the fruit, but go ahead and use it as the color.
Green: The Green Mill Murder, this matches exact, of course
Blue: Cocaine Blues, it means the music, but it contains the word.
Black: A Study in Sable, sable is a shade of black.
Peach: Peach Pies and Alibis, may be the fruit but it is a color, too.
Brown: Brownies and Broomsticks, it contains the word so go ahead.

Start with Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet and go from there. Have fun.

Lenny (lenny_ray) | 5 comments Let's see.
Grey Shades of Grey Not 50, just Shades - the Jasper Fforde one.
Yellow The Yellow Wallpaper and Other Stories and The Lemon Table Gold could count as yellow, too, right? The Golden Gate
Green The Green Mile
Black Black House and Blackwood Farm and also Beyond Black
Orange Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
Red Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West
Blue Nothing But Blue Skies

Actually, go ahead and count Gold as its own color, the more colors, the prettier the picture. :-)
