Booked by 3 for July: My Answers

Okay, that was harder than I thought. And I apologize for not answering sooner or acknowledging the two wonderful responses I know about. You folks really did a great job. Me? Not so great. I guess we won't try the August version of this because hardly anyone tried and what fun is that? So, here are my humble efforts.

Where's Poppa?
on Main Street

(authors: Robert Klane, Julie Gregory, Sinclair Lewis)

Wouldn't It Be Nice?
Walking Through Shadows
Forever Free

(authors: Brian Wilson, Bev Marshall, Joe Haldeman)

A Stranger is Watching
Lost Girls
Growing Up Weightless

(authors: Mary Higgins Clark. Andrew Pyper, John M. Ford)

We could certainly try this or something similar with first lines, but I'll need a show of hands. :)


  1. I especially like number two, very poetic. Have to say I really enjoyed this challenge and agree, it's a pity more people didn't take it up. Consider my hand up for a similar challenge using first lines. :)

  2. I really liked this challenge although I see I misunderstood the way in which it was to be done. Still, it was fun coming up with titles that flowed into a complete thought.

  3. There really wasn't a right or wrong way, Manky, and I really enjoyed your effort. It actually took more creativity, I think, to write it that way. :)
