My Gentle Spectrums Page, 2016

GENTLE SPECTRUMS is ready for 2016!  I hope we keep growing like in 2015!  This is my personal page, with a bit of description.  Please click this year’s pretty logo, to see my home site and how to join.  If you can’t imagine answers to every subject yet, come for the party.  :-)

I had no books in mind when I created these ‘Gentle Subjects‘;  just had fun brainstorming them.  I printed them, carried the list and a pen around our house, and worked out titles the same as you will!  I’m certain my examples will spark ideas.

Gentle Spectrums 2016

Welcome to year three of GENTLE SPECTRUMS!

I created this dual game, initially for a place to continue with more colour titles than older challenges included.  There are many among my books.  Opposite from narrowing material, one hue at a time, we collect as many as we find.  Since everything may repeat, I request titles bearing actual colours and their spectrums.  For example, brown and beige;  not “chocolate”.  There is a list of additional vocabulary that makes “Limitless Palette” easy.

I also love matching titles to broad subjects.  With ample room for creativity and the fun air of a scavenger hunt, these naturally metamorphosed into one group.  Thus it has two options.  You need only join once.  If your material fits a second game, you are set!  Note:  games A and B are separate.  The same “Limitless Palette” book may fulfill a “Gentle Subjects” category dually.

  1. Hi, Carolyn. I *think* I have joined this little group. I am reading (or have read) a title to go under Pairings (I think…). If you can’t tell, I am just a little bit confused how to join and exactly what qualifies! :) I linked it under the linky found on another page… but I’ll put it here too.

    Have I done it right?

    • We’ve caught up at your blog and the Goodreads chat group by now. To join is like any other group: please create a post to help let people know where to find my challenges. Instead of a sign-up button, e-mail me that URL when you have it. Then, by all means use the review page(s) to each group you’re in all year.

      “Winter Garden” doesn’t work because they are merely two nouns in a title. We want actual couples (Grandpa & Grandma or Grandparents) or inanimate pairings, like salt & pepper. The book you have queued called “Keeping The Kids” would work because it implies a pair of kids. Now that I have better explained that category, I’ll bet you’ll find many more ideas all year. I can’t wait to receive your e-mail, Blossom! :)

Everyone can comment! Use an e-address to sign in. :)
