Lisarenee | 7659 comments Did you ever notice that there are so many book titles our there you could have an entire conversation just using book titles? Well this game was created to prove that premise. In this game try to ask a question, answer a question, make a statement or declaration, etc by only using a book title. I call it Book Speak. So let the books do the talking.

Here's an example:

****************** first comment ********************************

Do You Love Me? by Joost Elffers

****************** second comment ****************************

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls) by Ally Carter


****************** third comment **********************

I Don't Know What to Say by Robert Buckman and Dr. Robert Buckman

******************* fourth comment

Here's the Deal: Don't Touch Me by Howie Mandel and Josh Young

**************************************** fifth comment *******************

I Want to Change But I Don't Know How by Tom Rusk MD and Randy Read

******************* sixth comment ********************

It's Over by Lee K. Sanford

****************** seventh comment ******************

So This is How it Ends (Avatars, Book 1) (Bk. 1) by Tui Sutherland

****************** eighth comment ****************&&

Breaking Up is Hard to Do by Lynda Sandoval, Niki Burnham, Ellen Hopkins, and Terri Clark


Now you give it a try. Remember keep the part that's relevant to the conversation in bold print and most of all have fun!

Hint: I searched Amazon for a relevant titles.

Carol Cork *Young at Heart Oldie* (httpsrakesandrascalswordpresscom) What Do You Say After You Say Hello by Eric Berne


message 5: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments Sorry guys to put print in bold you put (before the words you wish to bold) a small b sandwiched between a less than and greater than sign<>. After what you want bolded you put a slash and small b /b sandwiched between a less than and greater than sign <>.

A cheat sheet is listed above the comment box, it says: (some html is ok) in beige lettering. Click on it and you can see it. Just make sure to click on the X or the CLOSE to get out of that informational area, not the back arrow, otherwise you lose everything in your comment box.
