God is my broker. That's my new line. Loved this one.

On a limb with Claudia

did you put these together intentionally? It's a great conversation:

"Go slowly, some Back quickly. That's Me In The Middle. I'm not really here," he said.

"Everything's Eventual," she raised an eyebrow.

"Nobody's perfect. The Idiot Played Rachmaninov!" He said as if to justify himself.

"Woe Is I. Buy Jupiter" She replied.

"Now, God Be Thanked," He replied.

"God Is MY Broker," She laughed.

"The Trojan War will not take place," he said. He raised a finger to lecture, but laughed at the look on her face. "Long live the King."

She laughed again.

"SWF seeks same?"

Happy TT

Really interesting list. In fact, I looked at a lot of your blog and it is really good!

Nicole Austin

Oh, wow! How cool that the titles make a conversation. I never would have noticed that. Good eye, Claudia!


Tim Allen is an interesting fellow, he has a strong love of physics and I have found him to be very well versed on the topic, something I did not expect! And Asimov is always a great choice! Happy TT :)


Oops I posted in the wrong link. My TT is here:


Cool list, I might take a look at "The idiot played Rachmaninov" it sounds good.
Maybe you can stop by at my blog, cause I share a book list today as well :)

Happy TT and cu


The Tim Allen book must of been interesting. I never did read single white female but I saw the movie. It totally freaked me out. I never wanted a roommate ever again. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by my place.


I love the cover of Everything's Eventual...nice!


Never read any of these, but I did catch the movie version of Single White Female.


Im not much into short stories but my DBF has been trying to get me to read Stephens Kings..I did read 1408, however, I thought the movie was better.Tim Allen, huh? Interesting..Happy TT my friend and thanks for stopping by. Yep, I did one:)

SJ Reidhead

Very good, interesting idea for an author looking for a title.

The Pink Flamingo

The Gal Herself

Interested to see what you thought of the Tim Allen book. Just because someone is funny on stage doesn't mean he can write for thepage, so I was reluctant to give it a try. But if it earned a place on your shelf ...


Interesting list. None of them are my type of book, I must admit, haha.


I remember the French play from school too. I've had 6 years of French, but I never read books. When reading French I'm translating to Dutch all the time. When I'm reading English I don't translate, I think in English.
Thanks for visiting my TT.

Again, our book shelves are so different -- in titles, anyway. I bet the sag the same lol


Interesting selection of titles. Makes me want to go through my bookshelves and see what I've got.


That is a great idea for a list!


Oh my, I think I need to go book shopping and pick up a few of those titles!

Happy TT!


Some short sentences. Some remind me of six word memoirs. Hey, I just posted "Woe is me." Did I get the grammar wrong?

Alice Audrey

Buy Jupiter is excellent. I love Asimov


I've not read any of those, I'll have to check some of them out. Happy TT


As usual King is the only one of those I've read. I think I need to broaden my reading a bit more.


I think I'm going to have to place a hold on Woe is I now. It sould like a good read.

Happy TT!

Joy Renee

interesting list concept and what claudia did with it--wow. a whole new spin to the idea of books talking to each other.

thanx for visiting my list of authors most influential on my own writing

Geriatric Nurse

I really liked your list and your evaluation of the material. I will have to review my book shelves. Thanks for stopping by my blog.


Neat list.


Thanks for stopping by and visiting. I have to admit that none of the 13 books here are on my life list.

Have a great weekend.


Thanks for visiting. Just FYI, I linked to your article from my TT 13 Annoying Things On the Web:

Something went wrong with my submit button - sorry about the duplicate comments.


When I saw Woe is I, I was delighted that we both loved that book...but then I was even more delighted when I saw that you bought it from my recommendation (not to mention delighted that you refer to me as "lovely Di"...right now, most references to me start with "Mom" and are followed by "Where is the ..." God forbid anyone ELSE should unpack something and therefore know what it is!

Great list.

Candy Minx

It's amazing to me how many books you found that have such long/sentence style titles!

A couple on my shelves...

"And They all Sang"
"Made to stick"


"man in the middle"
"the upside of down"
"Enslaved by a duck"

Happy TT!
