My name is Lindsay and this is just so I don't feel guilty for not keeping a written journal...

I'm a dogear-er myself.

So this is my favorite book-I read it after my dad laughed and cried his way through it. (Nevermind the awards. My dad recommended it!)
Here's my second favorite-Thanks to my friend Sara, I read this and it has changed my life. (Not to be dramatic or anything...)
And here's my third-
It was just last year that I finally read this one. (After years of posing as a P&P expert.)
If I was stranded on a deserted island (and apparently had warning), these are the books I would have with me.
You get three. Which would you have?
OH wait, and this one-
Yeah, this one's pretty good too.
OK, you get FOUR.

When I was a kid, I read all the time. I would tear off little pieces of the page corners and eat them. Makes dog-earing seem kinda tame, doesn't it?

Becca Jane said...

Yay, thanks for some great recommendations! SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!

Becky- I'm sending you an email. I'm so excited for next week!

Yeah, I love book suggestions! You're funny, "here's my 3...uh...I mean 4" The BOM is just a given.

I had to think... Here is my list
1. The proper care and feeding of Marriage, by Dr Laura I have read this so many times and love it!

2. The Hobbit by JRR Tolken

3. All the Twilight books and just so you know I read them because I like vampires NOT because its poplular!!

4. Jesus the Christ, It has a bad rap for being hard to read but I truly enjoyed it!

And of course all the standard works!!

Well, I'm going to have to bring Pride and Prejudice too, or share your copy! I have read it so many times and never get sick of it, in fact love it more each time. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a long-time favorite that I could read over and over. The last one is a new favorite of mine, The Book Thief. I have read it a few times already and think it's one that could stand up to a lot of readings too. And yeah, I'd definitely want The Book of Mormon there too.

lins- you gotta check out pride and prejudice and zombies. you will die laughing and its totally worth the $6 if you buy it used on amazon. its my new fav.

im going to my desert island with a pitcher of virg Pina Coladas, a chair and a tote bag with Les Miserables (unabridged) by Victor Hugo, Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, Scarlett by Alexandria Ripley, and North & South by Elisabeth Gaskill. And because Im a sneaky one, I also stuck in the Complete works of Daniel Defoe.

Since these are all books you savor, not just read- this should hold me for a a little while till help arrives. Can I bring Matt and Rock as my cabana boys? someone has to fan me with palm leaves while i read....

Thanks for the suggestions guys! Melissa- The zombies are on my list. When I first heard of those I didn't believe it!
