Read a book whose title includes a 6-letter or longer word you can make using the letters "Reading with Style". Your word can have two e's, i's or t's because those letters are repeated in our group name, but the other letters can appear only once.

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12316 comments I'm pretty good at making little words out of big words, but Kate had to take me to school on this one because I didn't follow the directions properly. The word must actually be spelled out in the title or subtitle - you can't scramble the letters in the title to make a word with the the RwS letters.

The Book of Daniel (Daniel) or
Union Street (street)

Edit:

No possessives/contractions and the qualifying word must stand on its own, not be part of a longer word. I offered The Russländer to qualify for "slander" but we aren't going to extend things that way.

Rosemary | 2950 comments Here I come with the first awkward question ...

I plan to read Destiny's Rebel this season. Destiny would work, but there's no second S. Does the apostrophe+S disqualify it?

(I adore this task, by the way!)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12316 comments Yes, unfortunately. I should have mentioned that above, and will edit that post. No possessives/contractions and the qualifying word must stand on its own, not be part of a longer word. I offered The Russländer to qualify for "slander" but we aren't going to extend things that way.

Connie G (connie_g) | 1397 comments This is a fun task. I found two on my list of books for the summer.

Small Great Things (things)
A Spool of Blue Thread (thread)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12316 comments My favorite so far of the books I have slotted is
They Hanged My Saintly Billy: The Life and Death of Dr. William Palmer because it has two words - hanged and saintly. I'll post it for 20.3 Historical, but I'd feel deserving of two combos for it.

Yes, the word can be in the subtitle.
