Hi There !

A very simple game ...one just has to write the title of any book preferably, along with its author's name, keeping in mind that the title should start with the last letter of the previous post.

If you wish to you can share a few words about the book or can give a brief introduction as well....So my entry is

THE MILE HI! CLUB (Memoirs of a stewardess)...By Janet Chew

May I make a suggestion? Because a lot of book titles begin with "the" and "t" probably won't come up that often, how about "the" being put to the back as in "Hunt for Red October, The" and so making more titles available?
Just a thought. I was really stumped with "n" and still am even without "the".
Mental block or age?

that's a wise suggestion, blue2 !...or probably "the" can be bracketed..eg. (The) Facebook Effect...by David Kirkpatrick.

A Pair of Blue Eyes - Thomas Hardy
A story set in the 1800's about a woman who is between two suitors, one young and without social status and the other older and established in society. So the story unfolds around this dilemma (!) and her struggle about whether to follow her heart or give in to her parent's and societies expectations.
