Strickgarnschnitzel: Clippings of knitting yarn.


Strickgarnschnitzel: Clippings of knitting yarn.

Thursday, April 20, 2006


I found this at Sally Sue's Blog. (Isn't her Rose of Sharon pretty?) So, here's how it works. Copy and paste the list, then bold the titles you've read. Add four recent reads to the bottom of the list (be sure to bold those too!) and then tag someone. Or someone's, if you have more blogging friends than I do.

And I tag Holly and Alison.

Truth be told, if I'd listed the last four books I'd read, then it would say books 7, 6, 5 and 4 of the Wheel of Time series, but that hardly seemed very cool. Anyway, all of those are this year's fair, so they count, right? And yes I added footnotes. That's what those asterisks are all about...

*Since it specifically mentions the saga as well as just Ender's Game I figured I'd mention I've actually read the first four of the saga, plus Ender's Shadow, which is a book in a related series, called the Shadow Saga, about the same characters, but with different focus.

**I doubt anyone but I will have read Secretary of Frivolous Affairs. It was published in 1911, the copy I have is first edition and I found it at a thrift store recently in a cache of antique books. (I LOVE antique books!) After buying as many of them as I could carry, the oldest inscribed in 1899, the newest inscribed in 1935, I brought them home to research the authors. In addition to it's saucy title (and title page illustration!) the May Futrelle book caught my attention because May Futrelle, a noted author of the day, was a survivor of the Titanic. Her husband, too whom the book is dedicated, just a year before the disaster, went down with the ship. It's a lovely book, by the way.
