Book Meme

Here's a meme I pinched from Ms Mac.

* The titles in bold are books I've read.
* The red ones are those I have no intention of ever reading ever in my lifetime.
* The ones with a bold ? I've never even heard of.
* The blue ones are those I have on my list but are as yet unread by me.
* The orange ones I might read some day.

1. The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown

Oooo boy....I haven't read hardly any of those books....and I've always considered myself quite the reader!

Guess reading all horror and fantasy doesn't count, huh? ;)

I need to get a tad more intellectual, I guess! :)

I liked this meme a lot! I think I have to read this Middlesex book now, everyone seems to be raving about it!

You have got to read the Bell Jar. Do you want me to send it to you? It makes you realize that your life is never quite as bad as you think it is. I think that is always a bonus.

I absolutely despised The Old Man and the Sea. I keep telling myself I should go back and rereard it ... because it couldn't have been as bad as I remembered it. (Ok. I know it wasn't bad writing. It's Hemingway for goodness sake...but it bored me to tears)
