My First Meme

I didn't actually create this meme but I'm passing it along. Is this allowed? I'm new to the whole blogging thing so please cut me some slack if I'm not following netiquette rules.

This may be old news to many kidlit blogsters, but Kimbooktu posted a meme a few weeks back (yep, I'm that far behind) that I just have to share.

My responses to these questions (although I realize no one asked me):

1. Hardcover or paperback, and why?

Hardcover: Why not?

2. If I were to own a book shop I would call it...

Read-Head Books
(because both my son and I are red-heads)

3. My favorite quote from a book (mention the title) is...

"...sometimes bad things happen so that good things can happen. You just had to make the best of it." - Dougal the Garbage Dump Bear, by Matt Dray


4. The author (alive or diseased) I would love to have lunch with would be ....

I have nothing to say, other than not one person (so far) has commented on this major typo...I think she meant deceased?

5. If I was going to a deserted island and could only bring one book, except from the SAS survival guide, it would be...

I'm not sure why I would be going to a deserted island, but if I were, I would bring The Short and Incredibly Happy Life of Riley by Colin Thompson and Amy Lissiat, to remind myself "...to be happy with a lot less."


6. I would love someone to invent a bookish gadget that....

Created an extra hour in each day devoted just for reading.
7. The smell of an old book reminds me of...

HOME
8. If I could be the lead character in a book (mention the title), it would be....

When I was young I wanted to be Pippy Longstocking or Anne (of Green Gables). They're both red-heads.

9. The most overestimated book of all times is....

The Da Vinci Code
10. I hate it when a (good) book....

comes to an end.

And, just to keep things exciting, I tag Betsy, Pam, Liz, Mindy, Jen and Jules.

Thanks for the tag, Sondra! I'll see if I can do this over the weekend. Still digging out from the Kidlitosphere conference last weekend...

Oh wow, I'm honored to be tagged by you! I have the same caveat as Jen, though: I really wanna answer this meme, but I'm suh-wamped AND the Southern Festival of Books is this weekend (I not only *want* to attend, but *have* to attend on Saturday), but I'll answer it when I can.

I enjoyed reading your responses, Sondra!

Thanks ladies. I look forward to reading your responses as well. Did I forget to mention how jealous I am that I wasn't at the Kidlitosphere conference?

I'll get over it...eventually.

Jen Robinson said...

OK, I'm in with answers, Sondra. Thanks! It was fun.

And I'm sorry you couldn't make the conference. Maybe the next one, in Portland, will be easier.

Yes it is allowed!

Thank you for posting my meme! And congrats on your blog. Be careful, blogging can be very addictive.

Please send me the address and description of your blog. I will include it in my Bookish Blog A-Z list.

Good luck!
Kim

Kim,

I'm already addicted to many things - including shopping, which I mention on my blog - so hopefully this new site will distract me from my spending habits!
