Friday Meme

Courtesy of Thordora, I give you the book meme I have seen all over the place.

If you want to play along, simply take the list below, paste it into your own blog, put READ next to those you’ve read, WANT TO next to those you are interested in, AGAIN & AGAIN next to those you’ve read and can’t stop, and leave blank those you don’t care to read.   Like Thordora, I’m adding “MEH” for stuff I read and wasn’t impressed by.

I’m not much of a reader (unless it’s People magazine). The sad part is that the ONLY book I read on that list was The Great Gatsby – that was required in my senior English class in high school. And even then I skimmed some of it, watched the movie & consulted Cliff Notes.

I go through phases of eating up any book around and then I can go months without reading anything. I suppose at the moment I am making a concerted effort since I enjoy it so much – the only reason I don’t read is laziness.
