Book Meme

How I feel without a laptop.

“These fairy tales take me away from the harsh reality of peasant life.”

1. What’s on your current book wish list? If too many to list, describe what kind of things are on it.
I have a book wishlist a mile long, but some titles that pop into my head are Cinder, Supergods and Devil Said Bang.

2. If you could get just one of those as a gift right now, which would it be?
Well, Devil Said Bang isn’t out yet, and while I do want to read Cinder, Supergods has been calling to me lately. I’ve been seeing and hearing about it all over, despite it coming out about a year ago now. So yeah, I’ll go with Grant Morrison.

3. Are there any books in your collection that you want a different or secondary copy of?
I collect editions of Alice in Wonderland, but lately I haven’t been finding as many. I really want the Ralph Steadman illustrated version (it’s expensive!) and the Vintage version, because the cover makes me smile.

4. When is the last time you sold/donated/otherwise got rid of books you didn’t want anymore?
Oh, within the last month or two. I don’t keep as many books as I used to. Unless it’s near and dear to my heart, or I think I might read it again, I usually donate it to local book exchange.

5. Do you have any books written in a language other than your native tongue?
Sadly, no. I might be able to muddle through a couple children’s books in Spanish or French, though.
