Book Meme

Thank you Ms. Julia :)

Instructions: Bold the ones you've read. Italicize the ones you've been wanting/might like to read. ??Place question marks by any titles/authors you've never heard of?? Plus I'm adding this, as Turtlebella noted that the choice of books by each author is a mite idiosyncratic: put an asterisk if you've read something else by the same author.

  • You haven't read Little Women or The Secret Garden? I love those books - I still re-read them once in a while, even now.

  • I might've read Little Women in high school, but I can't be sure...same goes for Secret Garden.

    I wish I kept a list of all of the books I've read. I'm always curious to know how many I've read in my lifetime.

  • I have six bookcases full of books and I've given away hundreds in addition. Plus I've read a lot of library books over the years. I'm sure it's in the thousands - I've often thought of compiling a list, but then I think that might cross the line into total geek-dom. I already keep an Excel spreadsheet of books I want to read. It's 4 pages long....*sigh* It's a sickness.

    Hah!! My WVW is shbkx. Shh. Books. I swear, the WVW machine is psychic.
