Most of the games here can only continue if the first or last person remembers to prompt. This prompt is for everyone though anyone may add to it.

All written fiction has a theme, and like I've read on other threads, there are no original themes -original only in the way the theme is related (the premise).

So here is a list of classic themes, 10 in all. Your game is to name two completely different books that share each theme. For example, to the saying 'Be true to thine self' you could post -Atlas Shrugged and Moby Dick.

As with all written fiction, the answers are truly subjective. Have fun!

1. Love conquers all.
2. Never judge a book by its cover.
3. I think, therefore, I am.
4. Don't count your chickens before they're hatched.
5. Look before you leap.
6. We are all the same under the skin.
7. Rise from rags to riches.
8. Faith can work miracles.
9. Honesty is the best policy.
10. Silence is golden.

Wow - just had an idea for a thriller/horror story with one of your prompts.
I'm going to write up a synopsis - back later.
