I’m going to try a book meme today, for the first time, I think. I haven’t written anything in a long time, even though I’ve wanted to, because I can’t think of anything interesting to write about.
Looking around the web, I found a simple-looking book meme at Book Meme, which got it from Rhapsody in Books Weblog, who acknowledged the source to be Lost in Books. I’m sorry if I missed out anyone along the way in giving credit to the original creator or source of this book meme.
For lack of anything better to do (yes, I’m really procrastinating from doing what I’m supposed to be doing a.k.a. work), I’ve decided to try it.
Anyway, it’s called the ABC Book Meme, and you just fill in each letter of the alphabet with a title of a book you’ve read.
If you haven’t read a book which starts with a particular letter, like ‘X’ or “Z” or “Q,” you can choose a book that uses one of those letters in its title. However, you can only do this 3 times.
So here goes. Warning: It’s not as easy as it seems…
