Really Random Tuesday #47: A Book Winner, Tuesday Titles, and Memes




Please help me to congratulate DarcyO, the randomly chosen winner of The Iguana Tree by Michel Stone, a novel about a young family who emigrates from Mexico to America equipped only with the dream of a more prosperous life.  If you didn't win this beautifully written novel, please don't despair, because I have other terrific book giveaways on the right side of my blog, so be sure to scroll down and take a look (if you're on a mobile device, you'll need to switch to the web version to see them).





********************

While many people seem to hate Monday, at least it's a day that's mentioned frequently, even if it's in a begrudging manner.  Wednesday, also called "Hump Day",  is mid-week,  so it's referred to with relief, while Thursday, because of its proximity to Friday, is associated with that favored day.  Friday and Saturday garner a lot of happy attention, and Sunday is seen as a day to relax.  But what about Tuesday?  Tuesday is not exactly the most popular day of the week.  Poor Tuesday!  I thought maybe I could "help" Tuesday by finding some books with Tuesday in the title.  The first one I thought of was Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson by Mitch Albom, my introduction to this author.  A quick Google search helped me to find other books with Tuesday in the title:

No Tildes on Tuesday by Dr. Cherrye S. Vasquez, a book for children

Tuesday by David Weisner, a picture book for children

Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Bret Witter

What other books have Tuesday in the title?

MEMES
 
Recently I updated my Memes page, which is a large collection of book-related memes. If you're interested in learning more about these memes, or even memes in general, please take a look.  Also, if you have a meme that is not included in my list, let me know.  I would be happy to add it to my page,  if it's suitable.

  4. Congrats to Darcy! (That is also my rat terrier's name...)
    I've listened to Tuesdays with Morrie and I really want to read Until Tuesday.
    Checking on the online library I find: a series by Karen Kingsbury , One Tuesday Morning, Beyond Tuesday Morning, and Remember Tuesday Morning. And Twister on Tuesday by Mary Pope Osborn.
    I don't have a blog, but i enjoy reading them!
