My life in books


I found this fun little exercise over at Of Books and Bicycles, and just had to put together my own list. The directions read, "Using only books you have read this year (2009), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It's a lot harder than you think!" I limited my answers to titles for greater comedic effect, but each one is linked to my review for full author info.

  • I loved doing it also.

    I had to use a 2008 book for the weather, though.

  • May I hang with you and your friends? I would fit right in being part savage myself. Very clever! Might take it on this week. Maybe.

  • This was a fun one. I usually skip "about me" memes, but I liked that this one was a book title game.

    Your answers are great -- especially the Flannery O'Connor title!

    Here is mine.

  • Inventing English! I love that. And I would also like to go to The Magic Mountain, although preferably not Thomas Mann's version!

  • this is so fun! I'm going to have to do it too when I get a chance!
