Reading Habits

Femminista della Casa found a fun book meme at jenandtonic that I thought was a neat test of your reading habits…

Bold the ones you’ve read

I really like the random’ness of the book list and definitely saw a few “themes” emerging from my choices. I now have a whole new list of books I want to read, that I am quite sure I will never find here in English…Fun stuff!

  1. You can get a lot of books on line these days (if you don’t mind reading a computor screen – but even now Sony has an e-book with paper-like contrast called Sony Read). I think you can find books on google and I know there is something called the Gutenberg project that has mainly classics.

    Right now I’m reading (besides the usual journals and books for work) Dante’s Divine Comedy (for the second time) and the first volume of the 30 volume autobiography of Casanova. I’m not sure I’ll go on to the second volume, but he’s quite a kick – the origibal Daniel Steele.

  2. Oh, Cherrye, this list is just torture! J has a great suggestion, and I think the online books are great for saving the trees, but I already look at a computer screen far too much…when I want to read a book, I need the real thing (sorry trees!).

  3. Wow, a great meme! I think I’ll try it out, too! Thanks for stopping by my blog. 🙂 🙂

  4. We’re a variety of volunteers along with beginning a new plan within our neighborhood. Your website provided us beneficial information and facts for you to works of art in. You’ve done an amazing approach and also our own overall set are going to be gracious to you personally.
