Who would like to play the book game?

Asked by Stinley (11500points) March 14th, 2014

There is a book game on Twitter that I thought we could play here too. I hope that’s allowed…

You get a topic and you have to change a book title to pun with the topic. Eg the topic is Spring. A punning title: The Grape Hyacinths of Wrath.

You get the idea?

We can choose a new topic after a bit.

The topic is Spring.
Go!

Sorry for not participating for a long time but I really can’t think of any book for the spring topic.

Can I suggest another topic? How about crime?

Stinley's avatar

@Mimishu1995 You are forgiven! I like your suggestion

Tropical_Willie's avatar

The Man with the Golden Dandelion.
Good suggestion @Mimishu1995 !

rojo's avatar

Um, Crime and Punishment?

Stinley's avatar

Ok we will go with Crime as the next topic.

Wuthering Fights

@Mimishu1995 try thinking of the book title first (look on amazon?) then change it to fit the topic.

Stinley's avatar

@Mimishu1995 Not sure that you’ve quite got the idea yet, sorry :-(

You think of any book title and then you need to change the book title to fit the theme. So my book title was Wuthering Heights and I changed it to Wuthering Fights. Because fighting is a crime. An added bonus is that Heights and Fights rhyme. Hope this helps with your next try xx
