Jessica at A BookLover's Diary gave me the Butterfly Award! Now, I'm not sure if there are any rules to winning this award, but I am definitely going to pass it on! I just have to think about it. Let it stew for a bit. I'll get back to you. Thank you so much, Jessica. After the day I have had (which will be blogged about later, but it involves dog feces and urine and lots of it), I loved getting this award. Thank you! Everybody should FOR SURE check out her blog. I am a book lover, as is she, and I know so many of you out there are as well. Check her out!!
I have so many things I want to blog about and so little time. As I write, my husband is waiting to play Call of Duty: World At War on the computer so I've gotta be quick like ninja. After searching for a job for the last two months, I think he deserves some brain deadening time.
So, here's my quick post.
I love books. Love, love, love books. I have boycotted the Kindle because I don't want to ever give up my precious books. The sight of rows and rows of them on bookcases. The feel of a book between my hands. The smell of an old library book or a brand new paperback. I wish I could live in a library! If I was wealthy, I would have a room that would be floor to ceiling bookshelves full of all my precious gems, with a ladder that rolled from one brown bookcase to the next.
I am also finding some great book blogs, which I am probably a little too excited about.
So, my bookworms, I want to share my favorite books with you, the ones I would save first in a fire. In my next post (when my husband isn't oh so very patiently waiting for his turn to kill and maim the WWII Germans), I will explain why. But, until that time arrives, here they are in no particular order:
1. The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
2. Diary of Anne Frank
3. Night by Elie Wiesel
4. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
5. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
6. The Complete Poems of Elizabeth Bishop
7. The Vaccine Book by Dr. Robert Sears
8. Odes to Common Things by Pablo Neruda
9. The World According to Garp by John Irving
10. A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
11. Facing Love Addiction by Pia Melody
12. The Poetry of Robert Frost
There are a few more, but I think my brain might be clouded from all the dog droppings I've had to scoop up ever so gently so as not to get any on my fingers (gag), therefore I can't remember the rest. Right now I am reading Julie and Julia and having an awful time getting through it. We'll see... Oh, and I love Harry Potter! Who doesn't, really (well, except for the whack jobs who think the books are the devil's work...I hope that isn't any of you...ahem...cough, cough...if it is, I take it back...you're not a whack job, just a little...a little...okay, you're a whack job. Sorry).
And furthermore, I would love to hear all of your favorite books! Write a blog about it or just put it in the comments! I am always open for suggestions and would love to hear about ANY OF YOUR FAVES (although, you are excused, but not forbidden, from admitting anything embarrassing, like loving those romance novels with Fabio on the front).
