one book, two book, three book, four… and five

Pardon my lack of words. My brain says I’ve had too much fun and sun at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and that it’s time for bed.

I found this meme over at raidergirl3’s an adventure in reading; it originated with Stuck in a Book.

The Book I Am Currently Reading
I am stuck a third of the way into Jasper Fforde’s One of Our Thursdays Is Missing, just before Thursday gets thrust into a dangerous position. I seem unwilling to commit her to danger. And I just picked up Erin Bow’s Plain Katehalf an hour ago and read the first chapter.

The Book I Finished Last
Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. That’s the last 2011 book review I owe before I’m caught up to date here on the blog.

The Next Book I Want to Read
Tea: A Global History by Helen Saberi, which Rudi gave to me for Christmas.

The Last Book I Bought
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, in part because I had kept the library copy out past its due date and still hadn’t started it. This paperback copy will fit nicely in my bag.

The Last Book I Was Given
Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer — a birthday gift from a coworker.

I like this meme, and may have to borrow it …

I hope you’ll like Woman in White. I had a hard time getting into it, but was really glad that I kept going.

Also – you forgot to add the category for the last book you “won” – however, I can’t find your address, so if you would send it to me, I can mail your book to you.

@Bridget: Thank you! I’ve listened to the first few chapters of Woman in White already, but I’ve heard it starts slowly. I’ll give it longer than my usual 50 pages.
