Snow Books a.k.a. A Book List that Snow-Balled
a book list by the Twitter Followers of Flashlight Worthy
I'm always glad I had the idea for Flashlight Worthy and some days I'm especially glad. Today's one of those days.
This afternoon a woman named Tammy wrote me and suggested I recommend a book called "The History of the Snowman." This happens every day: someone suggesting a book that may be excellent, but for which I have no context, no list appropriate for the book.
Well, I took a look and oh, boy, it's a great book; I had to find a home for it. But where? Well, I recalled a book all about making snow forts, and decided I'd create a list of books with the word "snow" in the title. Okay, I had two books. Where to get the rest?
Twitter to the rescue! With just a few (extremely) short messages blasted into cyberspace I received a flood of excellent suggestions (within minutes!) from dozens of strangers from around the... well, I don't really know where they're from.
Who cares? They were tremendously helpful. Ain't technology grand? Enjoy the list.
P.S. Only now as I finish this description do I remember that I have an entire list dedicated to the "biography" of individual "things" like snowmen. I guess I've officially reached the point where my brain is fully saturated with lists.
Just so you know, at least a dozen more books were suggested; many of them were good books. But the name of the site is Flashlight Worthy so I ruthlessly culled the list to include only the very best.
