top ten books with numbers in the titles
posted by soe 1:47 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to share favorite books with numbers in their title:

  1. Crazy ’08: How a Cast of Cranks, Rogues, Boneheads, and Magnates Created the Greatest Year in Baseball History by Cait Murphy
  2. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
  3. The 13 Clocks by James Thurber
  4. Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott
  5. Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
  6. For Every One by Jason Reynolds
  7. 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
  8. The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde
  9. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
  10. Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale

Apparently I enjoy books with numbers in the titles; I easily could have kept going with this topic. How about you?

Have you ever read A Tale of Two Cities?

I had a ton of numbers too! (I could have made a whole post out of “one,” honestly) Book of a Thousand Days just missed the cut on mine.

I haven’t seen Two Boys Kissing mentioned in a long time. Haven’t read it myself, but it’s nice to see something old (in book blogger terms) and familiar.
