Here's a new game to try. The way it works is each person will list one title and highlight one word or part of a word in that title. The next person then lists another title that includes the previous title's highlighted word or part of word and they will then highlight a different word or part of word, and so on.

For example:
Person 1: White Witch, Black Curse- black
Person 2: Black Beauty- beauty
Person 3: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty- sleep
Person 4: The Big Sleep- big
etc. etc.

Got the idea?
Ok, first title will be:
The Book of Three- Three

Next person has to find a title that has the word "Three" in it. Also, feel free to make any comments about the book you listed. I'm thinking maybe we can find some interesting suggested readings here.

"The Book of Three" is by Lloyd Alexander, the first in a five book children's fantasy series based on Welsh mythology. An old favorite of mine.

Three Weeks with My Brother by Nicholas Sparks, Micah Sparks . . . . Brother
After a weekend of crying my eyes over The Notebeook and The Wedding I read this and loved hearing about his life as he wrote.

Joanna Shellie - I don't think you got the point of this game. You're supposed to take the word indicated by last person on the list, not the first one. I'll take your word though.

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow - little
