Books, Books, and More Books

It's time! It's time!

Another reading challenge sponsored by Katrina at Calladidder Days. And you'll never guess what she named it, it's so creative and wild, I tell you - oh if I only had her talent to name things, then my kids would probably be kissing my feet for such great naming abilities -

Ta da daaaa:

Cute, isn't it? Anyone can join. All you have to do is come up with a list of books you want to read and then try to work your way throught them. It doesn't matter if you read them all; the idea is to read! Head on over to Katrina's (or click the button above) to find out more about it if you want to get in on the fun.

I've already got a list a mile long. My hard part will be narrowing down the list to about 20 or so.

And in celebration of this wonderful event, I'm going to do Another Book Meme! (And the crowd goes wild...)

Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you’ve read, italicize the ones you want to read, cross out the ones you won’t touch with a 10 foot pole, underline the ones on your book shelf, asterisk the ones you’ve never heard of and color the ones you loved.

Did I confuse you?

Join Mr. Right's world. I have that man's head spinning All. The. Time.

Let me recap:

  • bold - did read
  • italicize - want to read
  • strike - won't read or read but hated it with a passion and if I could burn every copy so that others wouldn't be exposed to such terrible dribble I would do it and people should not be allowed to get paid for such awful writing
  • underline - own
  • * - never heard of the book
  • colored - loved it and would recommend it to others
  • If there is nothing done to the title, then that means I'm indifferent to it or I haven't decided about it yet.

If only I could make a legend like this for Mr. Right to follow. Poor guy. Sorry Honey... there's no guide for me...
