Saturday Word Play- Letters from Whitehorse



I've been in the Yukon for the past few days, more on that later.

In the meantime, look at all the books that can be found in Whitehorse... sort of.

I'll give you an author and part of a title. The missing word can only be spelled using letters from the word Whitehorse.

As always, feel free to do all 10 at home but only answer one in the comment section below:

1. W.O. Mitchell: --- Has Seen The Wind?
2. Janet Evanovich: Wife For ----
3. Shel Silverstein: ----- The Sidewalk Ends
4. Janet Fitch: ----- Oleander
5. Bill Bryson: A ----- History of Nearly Everything
6. Alexandre Dumas: The ----- Musketeers
7. Agatha Christie: The Pale -----
8. Larry McMurtry: The Last Picture ----
9. Kathleen Meyer: How to ---- in the Woods
10. Danielle Steele: Family ----

And since this was an easy task this week, why not add a title of your own using letters from Whitehorse?

5. A Short History of Nearly Everything

Elizabeth George - What Came Before -- Shot Her?

3. Where the sidewalk ends

John Mutford said...

Raidergirl: That's right. And I'm guessing yours is "What Came before HE Shot Her?" (And you could also have removed the letters for "Shot" and "Her".)

Jo-Ann: Bingo.

Remi said...

9. How to shit in the woods

Lahni said...

1. Who Has Seen the Wind.
I'm trying to come up with my own, but my brain is not functioning this morning!

Wanda said...

Though I've only seen the movie, I'm guessing #4 is White Oleander.

Here are two more for you.
1. Stuart O'Nan: ---- You ---- ----.
2. Mary Swan: Boys in --- -----.

Kate said...

6. The THREE Musketeers

How about everybody's favourite (except mine!):
Margaret Mitchell: Gone ----the Wind

Rosemary said...

4. White Oleander

And, wanted to give you a heads up that I've just given you a little bloggy award:

Remi: Tee-hee. Yes.

Lahni: That's it.

Wanda: That's right! But you've stumped me. I so badly want to Google.

Kate: Right. And Gone WITH the Wind! Yay!

Rosemary: Thanks!

More Hints ...

1. Stuart O'Nan:
a) Jiminy Cricket sings, "When You ---- Upon a Star".
b) Rumble in the Jungle Documentary: When We ---- Kings.
c)The first word found on grave stones before the name of the deceased, as in "---- lies Lester Moore FOUR SLUGS FROM A 44 ..."

2. Mary Swan:
a) --- Book Mine Set
b) Popular background image at A Season to Read. -----

Wanda said...

Since I stumped you I get to go again, right?! This one should be easy for you.

Beatrice MacNeil: ----- ----- -----s Gallop

John Mutford said...

Wanda: I'd like to solve the puzzle, Pat. Is it "Wish You Were Here"? (No Les, No Moore)

and "The Trees"?

And the last one is a pure guess, is it "Where White Horses Gallop?"

Wanda said...

The Boys in the Trees, yes. As for the rest, "You've got it, Pontiac!"
