My Day in Books (meme)

December 26, 2011

This meme was so much fun, I had to share it with you. You can see it done by other bloggers here and here. This was my day (all books are ones I read this year):

I began the day with Kick-Ass Creativity.

On my way to work I saw The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street

And walked by Revolutionary Road,

To avoid Death in the Garden.

But I made sure to stop at Swamplandia!

In the office, my boss said, “Do One Thing Different,”

And sent me to research The Tao of Equus.

At lunch with Cluny Brown,

I noticed The Sinister Pig

Under The Winter Sea,

Then went back to my desk, Naked, Drunk and Writing.

Later, on the journey home, I bought Home is Where the Wine Is

Because I Was Told There’d Be Cake.

Then settling down for the evening, I picked up The Paris Wife

And studied How Not to Look Old

Before saying goodnight to Bossypants.

What would your day in books look like?

  1. How fun is this? I'm going to have to see if I can do this too.

  2. Such fun! Especially to a book lover. I think my day would end with Randy Alcorns, "Safely Home."

  3. Cheryl--You definitely should--it's fun and easy!

  4. Pamela--I can't think of a better way to end a day than "Safely Home." Thanks for visiting!

  5. Looks like you definitely had fun with this! Funny reading.

  6. These are such fun to read and I love seeing a few of the books you read this year! I read Death in the Garden several years ago and was just looking at her other books recently. It does look like you've read a nice variety of NF--I hope to read more of it next year!

  7. Krista--It was fun to put together, and I enjoyed going back over the list of the books I read this (last) year.

  8. Danielle--It was a lot of fun going back over the books I read in 2011. I worked on compiling some stats yesterday--it was interesting to see what I'd spent most of my time on, and gave me ideas for what I'd like to read more/less of in 2012.
