TWQ: Economy Books

Following the TWQ (The Weekend Question) asking about Economy Books and Economy TV Programmes, this week, we turn to literary output.

Can you list what some books would have been called if they had a lack of space or plot? List as many as you like.

My answers are:

A Tale Of One Village
One Musketeer
Robin Hood and his Merry Man
Bridget Jones' Single Page
The Wave
Crime
(from Crime & Punishment)
Murder On The 2:15 from Hounslow (from Murder On The Orient Express)

Now it's over to you...

But before you go...

Take a look at Blogrush before you go (on my sidebar). It counts the number of impressions it gets. Your site will then earn one credit per impression, and will be shown on a widget on another site once for every credit earned. This means that for every time your blog gets a hit, it will be shown on another Blogrush site. If you get 200 hits per day, it will be shown on another 200 blogs! It's all absolutely free! In a few days, there will be a multitude of colours available. Click on it to find out more.

kenju said...

Jean-Luc, for the life of me I cannot think of a thing right now. Sorry. If I do come up with one, I'll be back. Michele sent me.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

How about the Dragonrider of Pern? (only one!)

As for BlogRush, I'm underwhelmed so far. I haven't seen an upturn in traffic -- we signed up on Monday -- and I keep seeing not just the same sites but the same posts from those same sites.

The Tour Manager feels that it's worth hanging in there 'cause the site's still in beta. We shall see, I suppose...

Shephard said...

Blogrush... interesting. :)

I thought of you when in Vegas... The Star Trek Experience was pretty immersive and cool.

Michele says hello!
