Reading Material

Huge weekend, completely trashed, my brain is numb - so best I can do is this tag given to me by the most glorious Dabich:

1. One book that changed your life: Sarah by J.T. Leroy.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: The Complete David Bowie by Nicholas Pegg.

4. One book that made you laugh: Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs.

5. One book that made you cry [or feel really sad]: Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami.

6. One book that you wish had been written: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides.

7. One book that you wish had never been written: How the Dead Live by Will Self.

8. One book you’re currently reading: The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.

10. Now tag some other people: I tag Good Girl, Erik and CuteCTGuy!

I've just noticed that I've been tagged by Good Girl, bear with me GG - I promise I'll do it when my brain is back in gear!

Good job, Ziggy! Daphne Du Maurier is an excellent choice!!!

missy said...

I've been meaning to read Rebecca, too... I got given a copy of the book by a friend's 70 year old mother...

Gretta James said...

I've read the magic far away tree several time too. That book is an all time classic.

Gretta

Erik said...

Excellent choices, & whoo-hoo! My very first tag. I will endeavor to make you proud.

Beth said...

Not only is this blog decadent, but it's also cool. You listed many of my favorite books (I'm so tired of people who couldn't get through Middlesex; i couldn't put it down!). I have a copy of Rebecca, in case you'd like to borrow it.

Dale said...

How very dare you mention Augusten Burroughs when I was just this day accusing him of ripping me off. Tsk tsk. How is Jhumpa doing? I've read Interpreter of Maladies but no others. I liked some of it but not all.

Miz BoheMia said...

Hi my most Ziggylicious darling! Once again, late to the party but given my life circumstances I have a feeling you will understand! Soooo.... I am catching up...

I speak French and depending on how the guy meant it it could mean "to have stumbled upon a decadent blog"... "to lie atop a decadent blog"... or to "fall upon a decadent blog"... no matter what, thou art decadent and I would go with option 1... see? You are even loved in French! JE T'AIME! JE T'AIME!

Ooooh! Me likey the tape fo sho! FO SHO!

As for the list of books? Oh my! You impress and intimidate and awe me all at once! And psssst.... thanks for not tagging me!!!!

Now, what happened over the weekend, hmmm? ;-)

Much love to one I love dearly!!!

Moi!

ziggystardust73 said...

Thank you Dabich - I'll read Rebecca and let you know!

Missy, we'll have to read it and then let each other know what we thought!

Gretta - Magic Faraway Tree was a BEAUTIFUL book. I read it over and over when I was a child in order to escape - I love it. And welcome to my blog!

Erik - endeavour to make me proud? I have no doubt given your writing ability that your reading ability will be equally as impressive.

Beth - you flatter me so! I loved Middlesex, wasn't so impressed by The Virgin Suicides though - how about you?

Dale - where have you been? I'm bovvered. Of course Augusten Burroughs ripped you off - you just need to publish your book ;-)

Miz Boho - I don't expect anything of my friends - I just love it when I see them. And we both know that you are just as decadent as I ;-) ... hope all is OK and the move is shaping up well! Smooches.

~ good girl ~ said...

Ziggy, ahhhhhhh! Lol! I am meme-fied. Will get to it when I am over my meme phobia :-)

We must share a common silly DNA. First the "no milk, plse" and now Faraway Tree. I have my orginal books from the Enchanted Wood series. Been with me everywhere for the last 23 years. Rememeber Toffee Shock?? The toffee that grows more and more as you chew before it POPS and shocks?? And The Land of Goodies was my favourite with the door handles made of barley-ed sweets. And that slide down from Moonface's house. Ahhhh...I had often wanted that slide. I love Mister Saucepan Man :-)

Smooches,
GG x
