Six things meme

Monday, November 17, 2008

I've been tagged for this meme by Rachel at http://americanbibliophile.com/ The idea is to write 6 random book-related things about myself and then tag six more people. But I'm going to throw it open to the floor: if you're reading my blog and you like the meme, feel free to pinch it. :)

1) I can't close a book on a page, or a chapter, ending in a 13. I always have to read past it.

2) My secret vice is true crime books. Every so often I go through a stage. Although, come to think of it, I haven't this year.

3) I've just realised that Neil Gaiman is my favourite author. After 30-something years of reading.

4) I originally started my blog last year to keep track of my own classics challenge (read 1 classics novel a month for 2008) and it's kind of ... expanded (in a good way).

5) Apart from my husband and son, the two truly great joys of my life are books and cats.
6) Our cat Scout, is named after Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird. I haven't read it since I was about 15, but I loved that book.

Maree - you left me a comment about signing up for the Christmas Swap, but somehow your e-mail didn't arrive. Would you mind resending it? xmasswap08 at gmail dot com

That's cool about the 13, I'm the opposite, 13 is lucky for me however I find anything with a 4 is rather upsetting :)
