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.

It was #59 and #63 that were the same. Sorry for using the wrong number.

#86 does not play on #85 since it does not play on a word in the title--nothing indicates the translated title was on the title page of the book. See Rules 6 and 7.
