  • Book Title Game... Only the smart may enter here... or you.

    You'll have to use your noggins for this one. Google can't help you in here. There are the rules.

    1. Start with a well know book. What does well know mean? A best seller. An award winner. Widely avalable. Good Example: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Bad Example: Haunted Houses of Binghamton New York.

    2. Pick a telling line from the book. The line must be specific and important to the book. Good Example: "The attack had also had an effect on Hermione. It was quite usual for Hermione to spend a lot of time reading, but she was now doing almost nothing else." Bad Example: "Fudge stared at him"

    3.Post the line

    4. If you don't know you can ask yes or no questions about the book.

    5. The first person who correctly names the BOOK and AUTHOR the line comes from posts a new line.

    Get it?

    I'll start.
