One book you’re currently reading: The Little Giant of Aberdeen County; Tiffany Baker
One book that changed your life: Nancy Drew - made me fall in love with books

One book you’ve read more than once: Silas Marner
One book you’ve never been able to finish: War and Peace
One book that made you laugh: One For the Money; Janet Evanovich
One book that made you cry: The Kite Runner; Khaled Hosseini
One book you keep rereading: I almost never reread a book, but it might be Snow Flower and the Secret Fan; Lisa See (loved that book)
One book you’ve been meaning to read: Bel Canto; Ann Patchett
One book you believe everyone should read: A Separate Peace; John Knowles

Grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the 5th sentence.
"Just stay there, please. I'm going to measure you".

Feel free to play along.


  1. I love the books you've chosen for this meme. To Kill a Mockingbird made me fall in love with reading at 14. I loved Pillars of the Earth, Silas Marner,and Snow Flower.

  2. This is a fun meme! I saw the post over at Eva's blog, and I think I'll post mine tomorrow. I need some time to think about my responses.

    Pillars of the Earth is one of those I've wanted to read but haven't gotten around to.

  3. I loved the Nancy Drew books when I was little! And Pillars of teh Earth rocked. :D

  4. Nancy Drew was the beginning of my love of mysteries, I think.

    I haven't gotten around to Pillars yet either. I actually had it checked out of the library once, but never opened it.

  5. Pillars of the Earth is going to be one of my books for the Chunkster Challenge this year (after sitting on my bookshelf for far too long), with all the praise it gets I can't wait to actually read it.

    I have to admit, Nancy Drew books were my first library addiction and it has just never stopped! Funny how I hadn't thought much about them until I saw this meme you did. Those were some great mysteries!

  6. Pillars of the Earth is probably going to be one of my books for the Chunkster Challenge this year and I am very excited about it (after it has set on my bookshelf for far too long)! Everyone that I've talked to have really enjoyed it!!

    Thank you so much for this meme... it reminded me of how my love for Nancy Drew mysteries evolved into such a love for books as a whole. There really is something about that first series that you read that can really just captivate you forever!
