“A Day in Books” Meme floating around…

It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow here in the U.S., and this is my all-time favorite holiday. It’s better than Christmas as it doesn’t have all that baggage associated with it. Just meet with friends and/or family (or not), and eat some good food together. Nice.

I also see it as a good time to remember the (many) good things that are in my life. So many to choose from – that’s a great “problem” to have!

Browsing through some of the book blogs that I visit, I came across this meme (thanks to Cornflower  and Books Please): My Day in Books. I did it a while back, and thought it would be fun with a more recent stash of books. The task is to complete the sentences using the titles of books that you have read this year. Here is what I ended up with:

I began the day by A Study in Scarlet

before breakfasting on Roast Beef, Medium

and admiring Mr. Bridge.

On my way to work I saw The Edwardian Lady,

and walked by A Sight for Sore Eyes

to avoid Tess of the D’Urbervilles

but I made sure to stop at Vanity Fair.

In the office, my boss said, Mustn’t Grumble

and sent me to research The City of Djinns.

At lunch with Daddy Long-Legs,

I noticed Lady Audley’s Secret

in The Room with a View

greatly enjoying Perfect Meringues.

Then on the journey home, I contemplated The Odds

because I have The Storm at the Door

and am drawn to My Cousin Rachel.

Settling down for the evening in The L-Shaped Room,

I studied The Gentle Art of Domesticity

by The Power of Habit

before saying goodnight to The Age of Innocence.
