I’ve been racking my brain about what to blog…I already feel guilty about not blogging as frequently as I did during the summer–alas! the demands of grad school!–but since I’m not done with Madame Bovary yet (about 150 pages to go!), I thought I’d borrow a list from my book club friend Bridget at http://bridgetsbooks.wordpress.com/.
It’s a 30-Day Book Challenge to discuss the books in your life. I’m not as dedicated as Bridget to do one day per day, but why not check in with the list every now and then? Since it’s Sept. 8, I’ll do the first 8 days:
Day 1: Favorite book = His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman
Day 2: Least favorite book = Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Day 3: Book that makes you laugh out loud = Bartimaeus: The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud
Day 4: Book that makes you cry = Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
Day 5: Book you wish you could live in = The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
Day 6: Favorite young adult book = Any book written by Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries series
Day 7: Book that you can quote/recite = Hamlet by William Shakespeare (and LOTR of course!)
Day 8: Book that scares you = Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan
I won’t go into more detail, unless you’d like to know the reasons behind a certain choice of mine! (But I’m sure I’ll discuss these books frequently on this blog). I’d love you all to comment with your own entries, and I’ll be sure to finish the list when I can!
