This game might be trickier than the others, depending on the word:

1) look at the suggested word/topic/concept

2) search for a book with that word/topic/concept in the title

Next person: start a new word/topic/concept and keep it going for the next member!

For instance:

WORD: family
TITLE: Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris

StarMan (thestarman) | 1879 comments I'm not sure if I understand...
can you post another one so I can engage my brain cell?
thanks!

For example...
WORD: dog
TITLE: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Just Elise (justelise) | 176 comments So we each assign our own word to search for? And post our title with the word? Just an idea, but maybe it would be more of a challenge if one person posts the word and someone else has to find a title with that word in it (then posts a new word for the next person to find)? Maybe?

(And I might be misinterpreting, but I'm glad I'm not the only one.) ;)

Yes, you're both totally right. StarMan had an idea that he shared with me, and I agree. I don't think I was thinking clearly when I posted this one. Please forgive my oversight...in my rush to put something out there, I didn't think it through. Let's proceed with your idea, Elise...

Hey, guys...if you see anything that doesn't make sense or needs to be tweaked, please speak up like you've been doing! Sometimes I exhaust my poor brain trying to think of ideas. In putting material out there too quickly, I forget to explain myself clearly...thanks so much for pointing out my errors! Signing off for tonight; no coffee (trying to be good for a change) has really thrown me for a loop...as my messages tonight demonstrate! LOL

Julie (julie_prewett) Dead Man Walking The Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty That Sparked a National Debate by Helen Prejean
Dead Man Walking: The Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty That Sparked a National Debate

This book was so emotional for me. I cried; not the kind where tears silently fall, but pure blubbering. My husband had to hold me when I was done. I can't really say what triggered that in me, but I can tell you I was sad for the victim and their family and for the man who was put to death.
