My Life as a Book

My Life as a Book post image

I’m going ease back into blogging post-Labor Day with a little meme I’ve seen going around the last week or so. I think I most recently saw it with Melissa (The Betty and Book Chronicles), who says it originated with Pop Culture Nerd. Wherever it came from, this one was fun. Here’s my life as a book for 2011, so far.

One time at band/summer camp, I was: In the Sanctuary of Outcasts by Neil White

Weekends at my house are: Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick

My neighbor is: In the Garden of Beasts by Eric Larson (I live next to a house of college football players!)

My boss is: The Help by Kathryn Stockett

My ex is: Train to Nowhere by Colleen Bradford Krantz

My superhero identity is: Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer

You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because: Reality Bites Back by Jennifer L. Pozner

I’d win a gold medal in: The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman

I’d pay good money for: The Broom of the System by David Foster Wallace

If I were president, I would: The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth by Alexandra Robbins

When I don’t have good books, I [am] Lonely by Emily White

Loud talkers at the movies should be: Crossing the Heart of Africa by Julian Smith

    These are always so much fun to read! I love your answer to Weekends at Your House!

      These usually make me laugh! I wish weekends around here were more exciting, but we’re pretty boring 🙂

    I’m not a meme gal, but I do love this one. This is the second year I’ve posted one, and it’s such fun. I love your answer to Weekends and Neighbors. You’re a brave woman living next to a house of football players…

      I’m not a big meme person myself either, but like you said, this one is pretty fun. We didn’t know they were football players when we moved in — so far, so good though 🙂

    I love these life in book memes! Thanks for sharing. My favorite (although it’s the most sad) is the one about your ex.

      Ha ha, that one does seem a little mean, doesn’t it? He’s really not that bad 🙂

    Fun answers! I especially like the “my neighbors” one. LOL I did this earlier this week -it’s always fun to try to find titles to match.

      Yes, it was a fun little meme — and fun to go through all the books I’ve read this year!
