An End of Year Book Meme

Kate Greenaway's 'Christmas in Little Peopleton Manor' in Illustrated London News Christmas, 1879


A book meme I first spied on Cornflower's blog and too much fun to pass up!

My Day in Books

I began the day with Incidents in the Rue Laugier.

On my way to work I saw The Other Elizabeth Taylor

and walked by Westwood

to avoid An Episode of Sparrows

but I made sure to stop at The Carlyles at Home.

In the office, my boss said "To the North"

and sent me to research The Way Things Are.

At lunch with Mrs Miniver

I noticed The Tortoise and the Hare

under The Odd Women,

then went back to my desk As It Was.

Later, on the journey home, I bought A Wreath of Roses

because I have The Soul of Kindness,

then settling down for the evening, I picked up Nourishment

and studied The New House

before saying goodnight to The Winds of Heaven.

  7. That's great. Can I play too?

    I began the day with The Cold Light of Mourning
    On my way to work I saw Our Lady of the Lost and Found
    and walked by Old City Hall
    to avoid Moral Disorder
    but I made sure to stop On Green Dolphin Street
    In the office, my boss said "One of our Thursdays is missing"
    and sent me to research The Charming Quirks of Others
    At lunch with The Fair Miss Fortune
    I noticed Rivers Running Free
    under The Bean Trees
    then went back to my desk, A Darker Domain
    Later, on the journey home, I bought Water for Elephants
    because I have No Time for Romance.
    Then settling down for the evening, I picked up The Game
    and studied The Language of Bees
    before saying goodnight to The Dirty Life

  8. Susan, Glad you joined in! I've had so much fun reading about about everyone's 'Day in Books'. And you made me laugh with your buying water for elephants because you have no time for romance.

  9. Darlene, thank you so much for posting this. Your post was the one that alerted me to it. I've had a go at it myself and had so much fun. How is your daughter finding Canterbury? We'll be there on Boxing Day.
