Books, Books, Books

In order to divert you from the fact that I have no knitting content today, I present the following meme that's been making the rounds. Next to yarn, the 2 other things I love to shop for most in the world are books and music, so this meme is right up my alley. If Borders or Barnes & Noble sold yarn, you'd never get me out of there!

This weekend promises to be much better weather so I can get some decent pictures of 3 of my WIP's--cause dark, stormy/rainy weather and gray and dark olive green yarn and cables just don't go together.

In the interim, bring on the meme:

Meme instructions: Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you’ve read, italicize the ones you might read, cross out the ones you won’t, underline the ones on your book shelf, and place parentheses around the ones you’ve never even heard of.

The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown+
The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy - Douglas Adams
The Great Gatsby - F.Scott Fitzgerald+
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee+
The Time Traveler’s Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
(His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - J. K. Rowling+*
Life of Pi - Yann Martel
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story - George Orwell*
Catch-22 - Joseph Heller
The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien+*
(The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time - Mark Haddon)
Lord of the Flies - William Golding
Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen+*
1984 - George Orwell+*

Atonement - Ian McEwan
The Shadow Of The Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemmingiway+*
The Handmaid’s Tale - Margaret Atwood
The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
Dune - Frank Herbert

Since I can't seem to bold and underline at the same time, I put a + next to the books I currently own. I added the asterisks to indicate those books that I've read more than once.

There isn't much I won't read, so none of these are crossed out. If it isn't italicized, it's not that I won't read it, but it'll be further down the list from those I am looking forward to reading.

Love them books.

Back to actual knitting content tomorrow.
