A challenge tailored for the books I like best.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'm not sure if I know any books that nobody has heard of, but I'll think on it.

Stephanie said...

Oh how fun!! I love that we talked about this last Short Story Monday!! I'll have to think about what I want to read!

How about A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Strange_Manuscript_Found_in_a_Copper_Cylinder. A 19th century Canadian proto-postmodern. It's fabulous.

Metro Mama: Sounds like an interesting book to be sure. However, when I click on the Wikipedia link it says, "A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder is the most popular book by James De Mille." If you click on the sasquatch picture in this post, you'll see that I intended the challenge to be unpopular books by popular authors. The Strange Manuscript book seems to be the opposite. I'd still like to read it though.

I've been mulling this over, but haven't thought of any worthy suggestions. I will continue to ponder.

Carrie, Barbara and Stephanie: Invites are on their way.

Metro Mama and Allison: I can't find email addresses (though I know I had yours once upon a time, Allison). Anyway, if you wish to join, I'll need your email addresses to send invites/permissions to post on the blog. Just write to me jmutford(at)hotmail(.)com

Got my invite, John! Now I just need to enable my JavaScript to accept it, which is going to have to wait a few days until the mass of hysterical people leave my office. (Just in case you're wondering what's taking me so long to accept.)
