Last Play:

Other People's Mail: 30 Years as a Dealer in Historical Letters & Documents by Kenneth W. Rendell

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.

880. The Two Deaths of Christopher Martin, by William Golding (read 26 Nov 1966)

I have somewhat less than 2447 books (out of 5727 total) which have "of" in their title. To determine exactly how many I have would require me to count how many of the 2447 have the letters "of" as part of another word or are in a phrase describing when I read the book, such as "spring of 1944", which counting I am unwilling to do.
