a fun little book meme

Amanda tagged me with this fun little book meme. Amanda, by the way, has to be one of the most voracious readers on the planet, and she's always writing great reviews on her blog.

The Rules Are: Post your responses. Tag anywhere from 1-5 friends. Leave comments to let them know they've been tagged. Come back and leave a comment when your post is up. Ok, here goes:

*Next 5 books on your to be read shelf:

1. The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards
(for the Once Upon a Time Reading Challenge)

2. Call of the Wild by Jack London (for homeschooling)

3. The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan (for the "The Non-Fiction Five Challenge")

4. The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett (for the The Spring Reading Thing Challenge, and because I've been dying to read it ever since I read Chasing Vermeer)

5. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Kidd Monk (for the Southern Reading Challenge)

--I do, of course, reserve the right to change my mind. The whole woman's prerogative thing, you know.

I'm afraid I just don't have a clue how to answer this one. Sorry.

I had The Secret Life of Bees on my TBR pile for a few years. When I moved, I got rid of alot of books and that was one of them. I never got around to reading it. Hope you enjoy it.:o)

You've never heard of Havarti Cheese? I sure wish you lived closer ... I would have to bring you some! The next time you're at the deli counter, ask to taste a slice. :o) Mmmmmmmmmmm!

Debi-

I am attempting to not be too disturbed by the tagging - you are really throwing a very clueless me right into this blogging thing. I of course can definitely get the book part done, I just don't knwo who to tag!

Secret Life of Bees is a great book. It's not my usual genre to read, but I enjoyed it. Hope you do too!

OK, sorry to be so late to the party :) We were gone on vacation, then trying to catch up, now a house full of sickies, me included! Luckily, I keep most of this info on my sidebar, so I will try to do it soon. This weekend, hopefully :)

Thanks for tagging me!
