I really really really wanted to participate in this meme. And Lisa’s introduction to the meme made me want to answer it even more because I do the same thing. I’m drawn to readers like dogs are drawn to foul smells, like children are drawn to anything clean and/or breakable. I might be on the introverted side, but I will approach a reader 9 times out of 10 just so we can talk books.
But…*sigh* I’m reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix right now. Interesting, yes, but a boring answer for this meme! And I was lucky enough to be sick last week so I got to read read read, but I indulged myself in Laurell K. Hamilton’s The Killing Dance and Mitch Albom’s One More Day. I would be tempted to review or mention One More Day, but it was just okay. There’s not a whole heck of a lot to say about it. Prior to that, I read Stones From the River by Ursula Hegi…could I possibly go back 4 books to answer this meme? I don’t think so…so I think I’ll just wait to complete this meme until I’m finished with Harry Potter and pick up something a little more literary.
In the meantime, here’s Lisa’s meme, and feel free to answer it here!!
I’m a reader who is always looking for a good book recommendation from friends, neighbors, people on planes, in waiting rooms, at the library.. wherever I happen to be. I find myself saying, “Whatcha reading?” several times a week!
In this meme, I’d like to know 5 things:
1. Whatcha reading?
2. How much of it have you read so far?
3. What’s it about? (in a nutshell! A sentence or two is enough)
4. What does the title refer to?
5. Would you recommend it?
