@TheDaysGoBy tagged me in the #namechallenge game but I was traveling so couldn‘t get to my books. Then I got overwhelmed. But I definitely wanted to do it so, better late than ever. I restricted myself to books on my already read shelves and none starting with “the” just to make it tougher. 😉

TheDaysGoBy Great job! 👍🏻 3w

#NameChallenge @aimesuee Ta-dahhhhhh! I don't love Lillian as much as the other three but I do like her an awful lot and I couldn't think of TWO L books right now. At 4 a.m. I'll come up with a hundred.

Aimeesue Ha! 4 AM is definitely when I come up with my best "Oh, I SHOULD'VE…" ideas! Great choices, though! (edited) 1mo

Aimeesue @jillrhudy I'd have still gone with Lilian. But I loathe Tolkien. 😂😂😂 1mo

jillrhudy @Aimeesue I shall overlook it! 🤭🤭🤭 after all you also have no use for Dickens. 1mo
Aimeesue @jillrhudy True. The way he treats his women characters makes me so MAD! Just ew. But I hate fantasy. I do like Tolkien‘s poetry and 1mo

Thanks for the tag @Lcsmcat . #NameChallenge Spell your name with book titles. 😀 All the titles shown I have read and liked, though Robinson is not a favorite (I know she is beloved but her genius misses me). I tag @Aimeesue and @Buechersuechtling if either of you are so inclined to play along.

Lcsmcat I need to read the Updike. It‘s on my perpetual TBR. 1mo
Ruthiella @Lcsmcat I read it many years ago in my 20s but I recall it was one of the first times I realized the importance of writing style and my enjoyment of a book. 1mo
Buechersuechtling Oh, cool. Thank you for the tag @Ruthiella ‼️🙂 I will play, I promise – but I need to think about my book titles first. Is it a condition that I need to have read all the books I spell my name with❓ 1mo

Aimeesue I will play! Now to ponder… this may take me a while. 1mo
Ruthiella @Buechersuechtling You don‘t have to have read the books! I just mentioned it because Linda did. 😀 1mo
Ruthiella @Aimeesue I look forward to seeing what you come up with!😀 1mo
BkClubCare I haven‘t yet read any of these. Tho Rabbit Run is on my classics club 50. I need to move both the Atkinson AND the Robinson up to read soon. “Her genius escapes me”. 😂 3w
