a meme reprised: five books
posted by soe 2:32 am

I last did this meme more than a year ago, which I think makes it eligible to be re-used at this time:

The Book(s) I Am Currently Reading
I started The Age of Miracles, a recently published dystopian coming-of-age novel by Karen Thompson Walker, this morning. I began A.A. Milne’s classic, Winnie-the-Pooh, over the weekend and am reading it slowly, a chapter a night before bed. And, finally, I’ve been plodding through Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s Encyclopedia of Life a few pages a time over the course of the last few months.

The Book I Finished Last
Tuck Everlasting, by Natalie Babbitt. Review to follow, hopefully tomorrow.

The Next Book I Want to Read
Rebecca Stead’s new book, Liar & Spy.

The Last Book I Bought
I feel like there should be something more recent, but it seems like The Enchantress might be the last book I purchased.

The Last Book I Was Given
Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant — a belated and much appreciated Christmas present from Sam.

Feel free to share your own answers in the comments.

Category: books. There is/are 3 Comments.

Books I am currently reading: “The Little Bookroom” by Eleanor Farjeon, “The Magician’s Elephant” by Kate DiCamillo, and “The House of the Seven Gables” by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Last book I finished: “The Dark is Rising” by Susan Cooper.

Next book I want to read: Probably one of the two collections of Roald Dahl stories that I borrowed from the library.

Last book I bought: I bought a bunch of quotation books for work.

Last book I was given: “The Tiger’s Wife” by Tea Obreht.

@Karen: I’ll be interested to hear what you thought about the Hawthorne.
