The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

Another Book Meme

A book meme...happy, happy, joy, joy! I saw this at Observations of a Librarian and of course, couldn't resist.

Here are the instructions as copied from Katya:

"These are the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by Library Thing's users, as of I don't know what day -- the original said "today" but I got this a week or so ago. As usual, bold what you have read, italicise what you started but couldn’t finish, and strike through what you couldn’t stand. Add an asterisk* to those you’ve read more than once. Underline those on your to-read list. "

I'm so glad someone hates The Catcher in the Rye besides me! You didn't like Angela's Ashes? I just laughed my butt off during his description of his first communion -- mine wasn't anywhere near as memorable.

I will for sure do this meme! And, your welcome, because of me you read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
Do you remember my reason for picking it in the Book Club? Because it's on all the book lists I've ever seen about books that should be read and there you go, it was on this one too.
Check my blog later for my results.
Have a great Thursday!
