the blame game

Sheesh...second week in and I almost forgot to post about who earned points this week. Forgive me, I'm feeling too lazy to take and upload pictures, so I'll just give you a list of what books I couldn't resist bringing into our little abode this week:

*News of a Kidnapping by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (got this from Paperback Swap after reading Eva's review)

*We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson (went right out and bought it last Sunday after reading Eva's review)

*Dark Harvest by Norman Partridge (total impulse buy...sounds perfect for RIP)

*Travels in the Scriptorium by Paul Auster (picked this up at the library after reading Carl's review)

*The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman (got this through inter-library loan...first heard of this one through Dewey and knew it had to make my Graphic Novels Challenge list, then felt compelled to finally order it after reading Nymeth's took quite a while to come, I think they should get some more copies)

*The Borden Tragedy by Rick Geary (picked up from the library after reading Joy's review)

*How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff (ordered from Daedalus books because of Dewey's review)

So, if I have this figured right, Eva and Dewey acquired 2 points, and Carl, Nymeth, and Joy have each earned 1 point. (Yes, I realize I gave out two points for one book, but Dewey and Nymeth are equally to blame. And it's my game so I can play it however I want to...hmmm, Maxidoodle just may be rubbing off on me there.) I think that now puts Dewey in the lead. Just two weeks in and already so much blame to go around!

This just cracks me up.

So, can we root for our favorite contributors?


Eva said...

is it bad that I got a warm fuzzy glow that I made you get more books? lol

Nymeth said...

lol, you're too funny, Debi :P I can't wait to see what you think of Maus.

Joy said...

Hooray! I get a point and you get an interesting graphic novel experience. Win-Win! :)

What a fun idea! I don't think I've been following your blog quite long enough to "get" all of what's going on, but from what I see I love it. You know who I would blame a lot--Nymeth. Sheesh!
