I have been absent from the blogging world for over a month although it definitely did not feel that long!
In an attempt to ease myself into writing blog posts again, I copied this questionnaire from my friend Oona’s blog (moi Oona!). The idea is to answer the questions with titles of books from your bookshelf and expose your odd collection of books, and a bit of yourself too.
Here it goes:
Are you a man or a woman? The Woman Warrior (Maxine Hong Kingston).
Describe yourself? Chamber of Secrets (…well not really; I pretty much wear my heart my on my sleeve but it wouldn’t hurt to have a secret or two!). It’s either that, Goblet of Fire, or Little Red Riding Hood 🙂 Truth is somewhere in the middle.
What does life mean to you? State of Wonder (Ann Patchett)
How are you? Man’s Search For Meaning (Viktor E. Frankl)
Describe the place you’re currently living in? Madness and Civilization (Michel Foucault)
Where would you like to travel? Spain in Our Hearts (Pablo Neruda)
Describe your friends? Women of Sand and Myrrh (Hanan al-Shaykh)
What is your favorite color? Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit (Jeanette Winterson)
What is the weather like right now? Heart of Darkness (Joseph Conrad)
What is the best season of the year? Quiet Days in Clichy (Henry Miller)
If your life would be made into a tv-series, it would be called… Storm of Swords (George R. R. Martin)
Describe your relationship? Clash of Kings? Just kidding… maybe… Our Choice (Al Gore) – sounds awfully unromantic 🙂
What are you afraid of? Fear and Trembling (Soren Kierkegaard).
Daily aphorism? La comete arrive! (Tove Jansson)
Piece of advice you would like to give? Wenn du geredet hättest, Desdemona (Bruckner) (=Speak up if you have something to say, it might save your life)
How would you like to die? One Day (David Nicholls) House of Spirits (Isabelle Allende)
Feel free to share! I for one am really curious about what kind of books people own…
