451 Fridays

April 10, 2009

451-fridaysElizabeth, at As Usual, I Need More Bookshelves has a great feature called 451 Fridays.  For this feature, she’s asking people what 5 books they would save.  When she invited me to participate, I was thrilled.  Well, the assignment turned out to be much tougher than I anticipated, but it was a lot of fun.  We went to visit Vance last weekend and I brought up this question and we had some great discussions with Vance and his roommates.  If you want to know what books I selected, go check out Elizabeth’s blog.

    That would be hard – picking just 5 books. You had great choices.

    Ooh, good answers! And I like that I had to link over to another book blog to see them. I added Elizabeth’s blog to my Google Reader.

    that’s a tough question!

    This would be a hard challenge. I commented at Elizabeth’s blog.

    very tough question! and as much as I love A Tale of Two Cities, I can’t imagine having to memorize it and become it. You picked a terrific top 5.

    Good list. Not sure I want to limit myself to five. I’d have to think about it for a while…

    Kathy, I don’t envy you your assignment. That’s really hard. I appreciate that your choices are socially conscientious and well-rounded.

    Kathy, those are all great picks. I think I would have cheated by selecting “The Collected Works of …” five great authors. The Grapes of Wrath would probably be interesting to re-read in light of the economic mess we’re in.

    I have no idea what I would pick. I’ll have to think about it!

    great choices! Tale of Two Cities isn’t one I would have thought of, but it’s a terrific selection.

    Ooooh…I love 451 Fridays. I’ll have to check out your post. I’ll leave you a comment there!

    Great choices! Of those 5, I think I’d “become” To Kill a Mockingbird.

    And Elizabeth is right…you are the best commenter in the blogiverse!

    I’m so glad you participated – thank you!
