//one book meme//

Just finished The Host and will post about that this weekend.  For now, winding down and grabbed this meme from Eva over in Striped Armchair

One book you’re currently reading:  The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

One book that changed your life: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury 

One book you’d want on a deserted island: Norton Anthology of Literature 

One book you’ve read more than once: Does Beowulf count?

One book you’ve never been able to finish: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

One book that made you laugh: Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney 

One book that made you cry: Watership Down by Richard Adams 

One book you keep rereading: The Great Gatsby by F. S. Fitzgerald  

One book you’ve been meaning to read: The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky 

One book you believe everyone should read: The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch 

Finally, Grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the fifth sentence "The twining voices sounded petulant" (The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman)

If anyone wants to play along, feel free!


  1. What a fun meme. Beowoulf definitely counts!

  2. I've been meaning to read The Brothers Karamazov too. :)

  3. Shana - Good! I've read Beowulf so many times I almost named my cat Hrothgar! I joke of course. :) I do have Grendel on my shelf and am looking forward to checking that one out. I always felt sad for Grendel. He had to have been misunderstood. I'm glad someone wrote his story!

    Eva - You are so much better at getting to books than I am, if you do read this anytime soon, I expect a full review. :)
