I'm not a big Blog-trend person, and there's a whole subculture I don't know, BUT I liked what I saw tonight cruising a few new-to-me blogs, and saw this one over at Shelly's books shelf. (

So, I'm going to answer here and I WAS going to post MY blog over there, but the browser gods HATE me and I cannot get the blog to allow me to post. This has happened repeatedly - our OS is apparently too old for the internet world anymore (we're working on upgrading but we need to do OTHER stuff first, like, er, shhhh, backup) so I can't tell Shelly this is here and thus, become part of a meme….my first ever, I think.
IE just won't load and we can't upgrade and Netscape just gave me so nasty little error message. I hate 'em all - and no we can't use Safari yet; we're still at Mac OS 8.5.1. Upgrading and all looks essential but I'm still learning what's wrong and how to fix it all. So anyway...
Come on in, the water's fine:

1. Name the titles of 3 books (not necessarily the books, themselves) that you particularly like.

Real quick, first three TITLES to come to mind were

Don't Turn Your Back on the Ocean - Janet Dawson

Book Lust - Nancy Pearl

Lamb: The Gospel According To Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal - Christopher Moore

And I _liked_ all three books very much.

Partner Stu added, when I told him this category

Nibbled to Death By Ducks by Robert Campbell.

2. Name 3 characters you found memorable and the books they appeared in.

This one is IMPOSSIBLE to limit to three. Ye gods.

Scout Finch - To Kill A Mockingbird

Julian Kestrel - four books by the late great Kate Ross - A Broken Vessel, The Devil In Music, Cut to the Quick, Whom the Gods Love

Jennifer from Hard Laughter by Anne Lamott

And ok, because it's really unfair to limit someone SO character oriented to 3 (and cuz I only have 2 in the nest group - cheat, cheat) - The Librarian in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books (ook!)

3. Give 3 favorite first lines and the books they came from.

I'm terrible with these.

"Camels stink worse that goats" always thought that was a grabber. From Catherine Dain's Walk A Crooked Mile

I love that Madeleine L'Engle began A Wrinkle in Time with "It was a dark and stormy night."

And I know there are others I've raved about but, I'm just no good at remembering.
