So here is something fun to give a try.

I am going to list a ultb book and you try to find it and who owns it.

The book is "Concern Ursidae Embraces and Light Contacts"

But, wait if I just gave you the title you could look that up instantly. So I have used www.dictionary.com to find synonyms for the actual words in the title. (There is not a one to one word relationship.) The book has been tag ultb and is owned by a member of the group. The person who figures it out, posts the next book in the game thread.

I'll give you one more hint. (Not because you'll need it but because I want to encourage you to look at each other profiles.) The book owner's favorite Library is in the city of Lowell.

Oh an if your the books owner...well maybe wait a while and let someone guess it first...

Juvenile Warriors of the Councils.

The owner describes (his?) library using the words 'aspirational' and 'eclectic'.

eromsted, and guessing the first word to be Young turns up Young fighters of the Soviets.

Maggy's infelicitous behavior.

The owner says she(?) is happy that she can't remember her early childhood, and says she's, well, orderly about her physical books.

The 1:00 AM CresentBend

In the library of a user whose city and name match outside of Ahassee and Ydi.

So like 1:00 AM would be _______time.

A bend is a kind of decorative knot.

A Crescent is a phase of the _______.

18misericordia

1:00 AM is Night

Bow is a bend

Crescent is a phase of the Moon....

This thread's gone a bit quiet, but it looks as if misericordia was strongly hinting at "The Night of the Mooonbow" owned by andyray. But I'm confused because lots of other people own that title, it's just that andyray's hasn't been combined. So maybe I've got this wrong.

21misericordia
Editado: Nov 17, 2008, 12:32am

No you're not wrong and you found a uncombined book. Wow! Way to go. Post away!!!

22kevinashley
Nov 17, 2008, 4:22pm

OK, I'll try a slightly different tack. Not so much synonyms as a loose rephrasing or cryptic clue.

"When are we again? Oh, _then_! And look - there's a list, in time order, just the way it should be."

The owner does seem to like his/her tea.

23misericordia

"_then_!" hmmm that must mean something....

24kevinashley
Nov 18, 2008, 4:28pm

The underlines were for emphasis - I forgot one can use HTML markup in these groups and fell back on usenet habits. So it should just read then

And the word itself doesn't have special significance.
I wouldn't want to mislead anyone...

So, a day gone by and no takers. I'll try a gentle hint.

If the initial question was "Where are we" it would be about our location in space. But the question is "When are we". So it's about our location in....

Well, you've either lost interest or it's too difficult. I'll try some more hints. An adjective for a time-ordered list is ....

Also, this book has been reviewed by its one owner. From that, one can determine that the number 150 is significant in regards to the book (but you would not know that from the title or author.)

Misericordia, you have it. I believe that, by your own rules, you should name the library but you clearly know who it is. My comment on tea wasn't based on groups (I didn't even know there was a tea group) but on the member's profile page.

Anyway, back to you for the next puzzle.

TallyDi's library...I got worried the book might not be ultb...

"The dogs of the wicker container sphere"

35misericordia

Dogs which use their nose to track down people rabbits etc.

36misericordia

Actual it's not wicker but most of these items are wicker. the one in question would be cotton or nylon.

"The Crooning Grotto"

41misericordia
Fev 19, 2009, 1:39pm

Hmmm maybe some obscure reference to the owners profile page. Possible something about Singing Canyons...working on it.

42misericordia
Fev 19, 2009, 1:41pm

Hmmm just whom might be doing the singing... Gaints, Witches, Goblins Oh my!

The book takes place out West, and the LT member lives 'out West.'
