It's been a little while since I played this so just to refresh my memory when looking for an item can we look for the word as it's stated in the list above with the exception of the proper nouns.

ex. we stopped at a store ( acceptable yes or no?)

Also would Academy be accepted as part of the school criteria?

I'll probably have a million more questions but it never hurts to ask ...LOL :)

Correct, your example is exactly what we are looking for.

Yes, I will accept academy for school.

Gea (gea89) | 406 comments Do sunglasses work for glasses?


message 10: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H Yes, Sunglasses will work


Jamie ~ Bad Boy Inspector (jamie_badboyinspector) For the colors do you find the word in title/book or can you use book cover that is predominately that color? I am new to this challenge so I want to get a grasp on everything before it starts :)


message 12: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H Yes, you can use the book cover but it has to be at least 50% of the cover.


Jamie ~ Bad Boy Inspector (jamie_badboyinspector) Ok thank you ;)

Gea (gea89) | 406 comments This couldn’t be possible! It was the one scenario I’d never thought of. All along I believed he was real, that he was not a figment of my imagination. But I was wrong—Flat Earth Club wrong.

Does this work for a planet?


message 15: by JoAnne (new)

JoAnne (joannemwct) | 1141 comments Do colors only work on the cover if 50% or more or could in the story it be She wore a red dress; Wehad our picnic on grass so green..., etc?

Colors are just like any other items we have to find, so they can be in a story like your examples :)

Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 1226 comments Would this work for planet:One of finest bartenders on the planet?


message 23: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ wrote: "Would this work for planet:One of finest bartenders on the planet?"

No, it won't work. It needs to be a proper noun like Earth, Mars or Saturn.

Rosina Is this ok for street?

i walked up and down Lambtons market street.

Megan (celtic_girl) | 363 comments Would Bible work for book?


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

will sunset boulevard work for a street name?


message 31: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H Rosina wrote: "Is this ok for street?

I do believe in this situation Lambton is the name of the city and market street means a street that all the markets are on not an actual street named Market Street. So, in this in this situation I would have to say no. A good way to tell if the street is a proper noun both the name and the street will be capitalized ie. Madison Avenue, Main Street or Rodeo Drive.


message 32: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H Megan wrote: "Would Bible work for book?"

Yes, I would accept Bible.


message 33: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H ~♥ Kat ♥~ wrote: "will sunset boulevard work for a street name?"

I'm assuming it is actually capitalized so, yes Sunset Boulevard will work.

I thought the same thing...wanted to make sure...


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks Jennifer and Yes both words are capitalized in my book :)


message 36: by Jamie ~ Bad Boy Inspector (last edited Feb 14, 2015 07:02PM) (new)

Jamie ~ Bad Boy Inspector (jamie_badboyinspector) Jennifer you said Earth had to be capitalized so this sentence won't work?

Left you feeling you aren’t the most amazing, gorgeous, kind creature that walks the earth?”

or this

You can feel so up, like you’re floating around the sun and then within seconds, you come crashing into the earth’s surface.”

They both seem like they talk about the planet and don't even capitalize "sun". They both came from a self published Author so they might not have got caught.


message 37: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H I will agree with you on the second example so go ahead and use it.


Jamie ~ Bad Boy Inspector (jamie_badboyinspector) Ok thank you !! I was getting ready to post my review post and noticed on our team thread you said it need to be capitol so I was frantically looking for other options just incase.


message 39: by JoAnne (new)

JoAnne (joannemwct) | 1141 comments Can paint be the verb or has to be a noun?


message 40: by Jennifer H (new)

Jennifer H Since I didn't specify, it can be the noun or the verb.


message 41: by JoAnne (new)

JoAnne (joannemwct) | 1141 comments Jennifer ♔Princess Penguin♔ wrote: "Since I didn't specify, it can be the noun or the verb."

Since it was under things I thought it would need to be the noun - person, place or thing.


message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

Would this count for Country?

“I didn’t just bring you halfway across the United States, get you to a place that is safe, for you to do something as incredibly stupid as threaten to leave.
