It must be Meme day.Â Jeni has tagged me for a Meme called “By the Book”.Â To be honest, I’m not much of a book reader, but I’m going to go on with this Meme, and see what I come up with.Â
“By the Book”
1. Total number of books owned: I got rid of most of my belongings, including books, before moving to Italy, so I’ll skip this questions because I’m embarrassed at how few I own.Â (Can you tell this is an insecure spot for me?)
2. Last book bought: Buenos Aires (Lonely Planet)
3. Last book read: I tried reading a book written in Lunfardo recently, called Los Siete Locos – I’m not giving up, I just have to get back up to Vancouver and borrow it again… Before that, I read The Alchemist. And I’m currently reading a personal anthology by Jorge Luis Borges that I received for Christmas – poems and short stories are a way to keep me involved in a book, so this is perfect.Â And I really like this one.
4. Five books that mean a lot to me:
Eat, Pray, Love,by Elizabeth Gilbert
Write It Down, Make It Happen, by Henriette Anne Klauser
Living, Studying and Working in Italy, by Travis Neighbor Ward and Monica Larner Owl
Conversazioni in Sicilia by Elio Vittorini, because it was my first Italian book – I know, heavy stuff.Â But I did it!
I don’t have a fifth, I don’t think…
I’m not going to tag anyone, because I’m a stubborn rebel.Â Ha!Â
Thanks, Jeni, for thinking of me!
