more books

just when you thought my ranting about books was over, his grocness passed on a meme to me. so, here goes.

you're stuck inside fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?

andy warhol's diaries. so i can hobnob.

i mean, unless you're talking about burning me, in which case, i'll gladly be any of the "nonfiction" political books that have flooded the market these days. throw me on a pyre, baby!

have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

uh huh! most definately. but i'm not telling you who that happened to be.

the last book you bought was:

goodbye tsugumi--banana yoshimoto

the last book you read was:

a bear called paddington--michael bond

what are you currently reading?

independent people--halldor laxness
jeeves in the morning--p.g. wodehouse
goodbye tsugumi--banana yoshimoto (well, i just got it!)
and i'll start ruth reichl's new book if i can snag it at the library today.

five books you would take to a deserted island:

1) a girl scout handbook.

2) todd oldham's handmade modern: mid-century inspired projects for your home--just 'cause i'm stuck on an island doesn't mean it has to LOOK like i'm stuck on an island.

3) something on tesla--maybe i can figure out how to make electricity.

4) an up-to-date world atlas so's i can figure out where i am and where i need to go next.

5) tropic of cancer--because i've never finished it. (my second hand copy makes me sneeze. i guess i'm allergic to henry miller.)

three people who I'm passing this meme on to:

anybody out there want to do this?

Last year I helped teach a girl to read. She started off struggling with Dr. Seuss and by the end of the year we were reading a Bear Named Paddington. I was happy.
