The First Day of Bookmas

Welcome to day one of our Bookmas Giveaway contest. For those who missed the rules, hop back over to the November 30 post and give a quick read.

Now on to our contest . . .

At the end of last year I had the "brilliant" idea of tackling the Book List Challenge. At the time I thought I was smart by giving myself a lot of leeway. Probably not smart enough. I still didn't read nearly as many of these in 2011 as I would have liked, but I did get to a few, and one of them became such a favorite that I read it twice and am a little sad it took me this long to read it at all.

Which book was it?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

Kaitlyne said...

Notes from a Small Island - Bill Bryson?

BW said...

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

Kaitlyne said...

Haha, Gloria's got it I think. I just read a couple more clues. :) Way to be fast!

Am I the only one who has a hard time figuring out where to look on Facebook? I don't use it, so I think that's why.

MAGolla said...

Sounds like fun, but really, Jessica who has the time to spend ferreting out this information. Fun for you, but I have too much stuff to do to prepare for the holidays. The only reason I'm blog hopping is because I'm waiting for a phone call before I walk out the door . . . and there it is!

S. D. Grimm said...

Wow, that was fast.

Alison said...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

BW said...

It's Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.

Sonja Foust said...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is my guess. :)


Kaitlyne said...

Magolla, you don't have to play. If last year is any indication, the answers are found literally in a matter of minutes.

I actually think this is one of the most fun contests I've run across on a blog and I was excited to hear they chose to do it again. If you aren't interested, why not just drop it from your blog hopping for the next few days?

The Cozy Mystery Journal said...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl is my guess too.

Kim Villasenor said...

James and the Giant Peach

Unknown said...

Dang and I thought i was fast with thirty mins. I had Charlie and the chocolate factory. Because I really didn't like the next book after that. It was rather weird. And I am glad they didn't make it a movie.

Kim Villasenor said...

James and the Giant Peach

Erin said...

I agree Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Kim Villasenor said...

I meant to say "James and the Giant Peach is my daughters favorite", otherwise I probably wouldn't have come up with it so quickly. This is fun, let's do another one!

Shaunna said...

Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen

Andrea Laurence said...

Y'all are too fast. We're going to have to make the clues harder or you'll never get to the bottom of the page where I'm listed! :)

Kaitlyne said...

I'll start from the bottom tomorrow. How's that? :P

Becca said...

I didn't get here fast enough, it's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Daryl Wood Gerber a.k.a. Avery Aames said...

Could we learn which clues helped you discover the answers you came up with? I love hearing about deductive reasoning!

Did you start at the top of the list and descend?

Just wondering.

Becca said...

I found out 'cause I like Charlie and the Chocolate factory and one clue was about a girl that turns into a blueberry and it reminded me of the move:)

elizabeth kane buzzelli said...

My clues are at the blog on my website--just in case anybody thinks I've hidden them in code.
