10.3. Lean on Me
To celebrate the Leaning Tower of Pisa, read a book in which the word "lean" appears intact in the title/subtitle or author's name.

yes, "lean" is intact in the name.

Yes, the task falls for the word to be "found intact" - so as long as all the letters of the word are together, making the word "lean," it works.

I'm planning to read A River Runs Through It.

I also thought of The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun which I read for the Spring challenge.

I'm also looking forward to reading Eleanor Marx: A Life which would fit for this prompt.

Bryony (bryony46) | 362 comments Would a book by Lean Cullinan be okay? I ask because her name is usually written with an accent on the letter e, although this doesn't appear to be included in the Goodreads record. Thank you!
