(Click on the links for more examples and info)

  • One/1  – Anna Quindlen’s One True Thing
  • Doubled word – I have two options here:   Apologize, APOLOGIZE by Elizabeth Kelly or The Smart One and the Pretty One by Claire Lazebnik
  • Reference to outer space  – Walter Kirn’s Up in the Air 
  • Possessive noun – I hope to read BOTH of these: The Children’s Book by A.S.Byatt and The Children’s Bible by Lydia Millet


  • Botanical word – I own 2 books with “garden” in the title: The Paper Garden by Molly Peacock or Alan Drew’s Gardens of Water
  • Article of clothing – I have NO IDEA! please help. I couldn’t even figure out how to search by gr tbr to give me suggestions.

I will be reading Pauli Murray’s Proud Shoes for the Article of Clothing category…  psbypm

This is one of my favorite challenges because it gets me to go through my own shelves and I am reminded of or re-find possibilities of some great reads!

More choices possible on my list in goodreads.

  1. Sounds like a great list! I love Elizabeth Kelly’s books. I read The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt and it would definitely be worth a re-read and the Lydia Millet is on my TBR (has been for a while)! There seem to be a lot of books about dresses lately — The Gown; Nine Women, One Dress; The Wedding Dress (Danielle Steel). There’s always Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley (on my TBR) or Dress Your Family in Denim and Corduroy (David Sedaris)!

    1. Oh, I meant to respond to this and must have forgotten. I took your suggestion for the word DRESS and found some titles on my tbr that I will seek at the library. THANK YOU for these very helpful suggestions.

  2. I’ve done such a terrible job of doing any of the things that connect me to the blogging word in the past few years. But my one word for 2021 is “reconnect.” Maybe I should start with jumping into this challenge!
