Still no Joy, Suisan
HOWEVER I did find another VERY COOL MEME at BSChick's place. She was writing a SBD entry and I bet she didn't even know she was inventing a meme. Check it out: You take titles and arrange them into sentences.
You see, I’ve always believe that Harlequin Presents covers can be used either to
a.) make one weird blackmail note, or
b.) summarize a whole new plot for the upcoming month.
To do this one must first collect six Harlequin Presents. For our example we’ll use the six that came out for the month of November:
Pregnancy of Revenge by Jacqueline Baird
The Italian Doctor’s Mistress by Catherine Spencer
Bound by Blackmail by Kate Walker
Disobedient Virgin by Sandra Marton
Sale or Return Bride by Sarah Morgan
The Greek’s Bought Wife by Helen Bianchin
Do not try to make sense out of the titles. I don’t know what the Sale or Return Bride means either; it doesn’t matter. You are now going to rearrange these titles so they make a sentence (or a couple of sentences). Feel free to add in important linking words like (if, then, and, or longer phrases).
Your result may look like so:
Although Bound by Blackmail, the Disobedient Virgin refused to be the Italian Doctor’s Mistress and instead chose to be The Greek’s Bought Wife. Even though he considered her to be his Sale or Return Bride, she would carry his Pregnancy of Revenge with love.
I'm looking at my bookshelf now. Hmmm Feast of Murder, Uncle Dynamite, Five Weeks To Winning Bridge, Myself, The Four-Gated City, Courting Trouble, The Wages of Zen, Jed The Poor-House Boy, and The Penultimate Peril. Maybe it doesn't work for every bookshelf? You probably have to stick to one genre. I'll bet horror or cozy mysteries could be as good as Harlequin Presents.
See if it works for you and let me know. I'm going to gaze at my too-random list for another couple of minutes. Then I have to get back to the work of driving a wooden stake into a book's heart.
