Hi Connie,

I came across two books that say "volume #" on them. Can I put these toward this challenge too? ive had them out of the library for weeks and it's almost time to return them but I haven't read them yet because i keep doing the challenges haha. Let me know if i can use them. It's Fables, Vol. 7: Arabian Nights and Days and Fables, Vol. 8: Wolves .

Michelle:
These books would count for this challenge because the volume number is actually a part of the title. Books in a series where the number is part of a subtitle would not count. i.e. Cross (Alex Cross #12). I hope I explained that well enough.

1) Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Picoult *
2) Nineteen Eighty-Four - George Orwell
3) Department Nineteen - Will Hill
4) The 19 Wife - David Ebershoof*
5) Wife No. 19 - Ann Eliza Young*
6) Eleven Minutes - Paulo Coelho*
7) Eleven Minutes Late: A Train Journey to the Soul of Britain -Matthew Engel
8) Eleven Minutes (Fracture, #0.5) -Megan Miranda
9) 90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life
by Don Piper, Cecil Murphey *
Those * at the end, are those I've read. I highly recommend 90 minutes in Heaven and Wife No. 19 and the Thirteenth Tale (which another reader posted).

Actually found more than 50 titles just for 19 and quite a few which had a number when paired with minutes - for those looking for a random search.
