Cold Hands, Warm Heart: Alaskan Adventures of an Iditarod Champion by Jeff King

Best wishes, King Jeff, once again on the Iditarod Trail, so many people's thoughts are with you ... wonder what he has in the little bag on the gangline ... a possible memorial to his dog, Nash, (killed when a drunk on a snowmachine attacked his team yesterday) going to Nome with them?

151moibibliomaniac

Pennsylady,

Here are the Suggested Rules of the Game:

1. Please play on the most recent correct post.

2 Please verify that no one else has posted while you were preparing your post.

3. The title of the book cited must have one word, at least, which is the same as a word in the previous title.

4. The repeated word in the new title must be other than an article ("a," "an," or "the").

5. The repeated word must be spelled exactly as the word was spelled in the previous title, e.g., "prune" is not the same word as "prunes," and "loyal" is not the same word as "loyalty."

6. The repeated word must be in the title as shown in a LT library listing, or on the title page of the book. A sub-title or a series name can be included if the sub-title or series name is included in the title of a LT library listing, or is printed on the title page of the book.

7. A hyphenated word is one word, not two, e.g., "thunder-clouds," and if used must be repeated in full, not in part only.

8. No repeats on current thread.

9. If you have read the book it would be informative that you so indicate and tell when you read it, if you can.

10. Try to use Touchstones. Put brackets around the title and double brackets around the author. If Touchstones don't work, try using an HTML link.

Bastards and Boneheads: Canadas
Glorious Leaders Past and Present
by Will Ferguson

329rolandperkins
Edited: May 7, 2016, 2:21pm Top

off topic:
A curiosity of 328, Schmerguls, is that, this
time the title didnʻt appear in blue, even though
I purposely left out the apostrophe of
"Canadaʻs". (Usually I can get the blue to
appear by this incorrect maneuver.)
If I had left the apostrophe in it would
of course not appear in blue.
I still havenʻt decided if that is a quirk of
my own system, or of LT.

330starbox

Bastards & Boneheads: Canada's Glorious Leaders, Past and Present --#330 I managed to make it work by copying & pasting the title straight from Ferguson's listed works on Librarything. Seems they use ampersand sign instead of written 'and'; maybe that's the difference!

"click(ing)... I am taken to Romeo
and Juliet"...(328, 333)

I think it is because the words "Will" and
"Ferguson" appear somewhere in the
field (though not in the title or author)
that the system is searching; Iʻm
no computer scientist, and not sure Iʻm, even
using the right terminology here, so perhaps
another member could give you a clearer
explanation. In my own searches I am usually
getting a long list of great classics that seem
to have nothing to do with what I clicked on.

#344 plays on #343 with a hyphenated word and #346 plays on #345 with a word ("Florida's" is not the same word as "Florida") which is not exactly the same as what was in #345. Both thus violate the rule that the word must be exactly the same as in the title previously set out.

516Schmerguls
Jun 16, 2016, 11:45am Top

Lisa, they were last listed at the beginning of part 149 of this game:

Here they are: (pretty simple, really)

Rules of the game:

1. Please play on the most recent correct post.

2 Please verify that no one else has posted while you were preparing your post.

3. The title of the book cited must have one word, at least, which is the same as a word in the previous title.

4. The repeated word in the new title must be other than an article ("a," "an," or "the").

5. The repeated word must be spelled exactly as the word was spelled in the previous title, e.g., "prune" is not the same word as "prunes," and "loyal" is not the same word as "loyalty."

6. The repeated word must be in the title as shown in a LT library listing, or on the title page of the book. A sub-title or a series name can be included if the sub-title or series name is included in the title of a LT library listing, or is printed on the title page of the book.

7. A hyphenated word is one word, not two, e.g., "thunder-clouds," and if used must be repeated in full, not in part only.

8. No repeats on current thread.

9. If you have read the book it would be informative that you so indicate and tell when you read it, if you can.

10. Try to use Touchstones. Put brackets around the title and double brackets around the author. If Touchstones don't work, try using an HTML link.
