We interrupt your Sunday afternoon w/ a Haiku Riddle from a Reader!

Dear readers, hope we didn't wake you from a nap this lovely Sunday afternoon --its perfect nap weather here.  The Dad is certain of the book title, the Mom pretty sure and the Big and Little Sister are flipping through a couple of possibilities at lunch today... What do you think?  Solve the Haiku riddle and learn one of jolynbarrett's favorite books:

jolynbarrett said...
White whale in my depths,
are you really salvation?
or my undoing...
I think I want you to guess the title of the book that prompted this response. It answers another challenge because it's also one of my favorites.

Post your guess and thoughts on the book in the comments below:


  1. Pray, who is the prey?
    Ahab sees him in all seas;
    He seizes Ahab!

  2. how much fun is that!

  3. I have a clue. The First Line/Last Line of the book:

    Call me Ishmael. Now small fowl flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf; a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed, and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago.
