My Day in Books

photo by k
After seeing this meme on Simon and Sakura's blogs, I thought it would be fun to do it myself ... it's a story of a fictional day using books that I've read this year.

I began the day by The Walnut Tree

before breakfasting on The Pinhoe Egg

and admiring The Secret Garden.

On my way to work I saw Something Wicked this Way Comes

and walked by The Yard

to avoid The Woman in Black,

but I made sure to stop at The Phantom Tollbooth.

In the office, my boss said "I Am Half-Sick of Shadows",

and sent me to research Half Magic.

At lunch with Earwig and the Witch

I noticed Aunt Maria

in The Traveling Restaurant

greatly enjoying The Egg & I.

Then on the journey home, I contemplated Bright and Distant Shores

because I have The Map of the Sky*

and am drawn to Castle in the Air.

Settling down for the evening, Among the Mad,

I studied The Graveyard Book

by The Somnambulist

before saying goodnight to The Secret Keeper.

How was your day?

  1. Very clever indeed! I can't remember half the books I read this year, but most of them will probably have been ones I have shared with Holly. Will have to think about this ... it's an excellent activity.

    1. I'm a spreadsheet kind of gal so it's easy to just pull it out and scan down the list. Maybe you should do one version and Holly could do another!

  2. Oh this was great! Love it. Might have to give it a go myself. I love doing this kind of stuff.

    1. I bet yours would be ten times more awesome than mine. Somehow like 75% of my book titles this year started with "The" and I read three "egg" books. :)

  3. A fun meme.

    Love the mushroom piccie

    1. Thanks! We have TONS of mushrooms in the yard right now but not enough good daylight to take really good pics. I'm trying though!
