There are plenty of memes that want to know all about your book history and your all-time greats and your grand ambitions, but let’s focus on something more revealing: the books you’re actually reading now, or just read, or are about to read. Let’s call it The Immediate Book Meme.
1. What book are you reading now?
The Striped Ships by Eloise McGraw
Brother Andre by Jean-Guy Dubuc
Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious by Pat Gohn
2. What book did you just finish?
The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Junkyard Planet by Adam Minter
3. What do you plan to read next?
Voyage to Alpha Centauri by Michael O’Brien
4. What book do you keep meaning to finish?
The Reed of God
5. What book do you keep meaning to start?
The list is too long to type, biographies of T.S. Eliot and Rumer Godden and a whole pile of comp copies of books that Dom keeps bringing home from work but I just can’t find time for.
6. What is your current reading trend?
Buying biographies of favorite authors and not reading them. Opting instead for light juvenile fiction and genre lit.
Also, more generally, not making much time in the day for reading but satisfying my itch for story with the books I’m reading to Bella.
