Found meming in my life

Jagosaurus tagged me for this meme:

[1] Name five six of your favorite books.

1. A Short History of a Small Place by T.R. Pearson

2. A Winters Tale by Mark Helprin

3. Once and Future King by T.H. White

4. and 5. Would it be cheating to mention Hitchhiker’s Guide and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books even though Jagosaurus already did? (Though my favorites are The Truth and Feet of Clay.)

6. Lord of the Rings by J.R. Tolkien

[2] What was the last book you bought?

Vintage Knits and Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris

[3] What was the last book you read?

Eminent Dogs, Dangerous Men by Donald McCaig

[4] List five books that have been particularly meaningful to you (in no particular order).

1. Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell

2. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

3. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

4. John Adams by David McCullough

5. Nineteen Nineteen by John dos Passos

[5] Name three books you’ve been dying to read but just haven’t yet.

1. Truman by David McCullough

2.42nd Parallel by John dos Passos

3. Ramona by Helen Jackson

[6] Tag five people and have them fill this quiz out on their own.

I’m going to tag people privately, because I doubt they’ll respond and I don’t want to embarrass them. I’ll list them if they respond, but don’t hold your breath.

Did you have a hard time limiting yourself to so few books? I did. I could have easily listed a whole bunch more including some of the ones you listed.

Thanks for doing this. I figured your responses would be interesting and I wasn't disaappointed.

I had to keep setting myself to thinking in different directions. I'd get stuck on the dog books and have to remind myself to think of those laugh-out-loud books like Douglas Adams, Pearson and Pratchett. I must have changed every list about four times.
