"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my
lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other
bloggers who share their lists here.
This week, our topic is Books With a Unit of Time In the Title (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, eternity, etc.)
What a lovely idea. And what an easy way to find the books, I just had to go through my reading list and search for the appropriate units, starting with seconds. So, here we go:
Alexievich, Swetlana "Second Hand Time. The Last of the Sovjets" (RUS: Время секонд хэнд/Vremja sekond khend) - 2013
Ishiguro, Kazuo "The Remains of the Day" - 1989
Levithan, David "Every Day" - 2012
Scarry, Richard "What Do People Do All Day" - 1968 et al.
Solzhenitsyn, Alexander "His Great Stories" (One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich et al.) (RUS: Оди́н день Ива́на Дени́совича/Odin den' Ivana Denisovicha) - 1962/63
Drinkwater, Carol "The Olive Farm" and further Olive Farm Books (i.a. The Olive Season) - 2001-2010
Clarke, Stephen "A Year in the Merde" - 2004
Irving, John "A Widow for One Year" - 1998
Follett, Ken "Edge of Eternity" - 2014
Did anyone notice that I cheated? Top Eleven. Of course, I could have left out "eternity" or any of the others but after I found them, I thought they all deserve a place in the list.
I hope, everyone else had it as easy as I did this time. I always enjoy seeing other lists and discover new books. Not that any of us needs any.
📚 Happy Reading! 📚
