My Life as a Book - 2011

A few years ago, I met my friend and fellow blogger, Pop Culture Nerd, through a meme about book titles. She has devotedly continued that meme each year, and I always look forward to it. I think partly because it's how I met her and partly because she is so darned creative with the sentences.

So, a few weeks ago I was asking her about it. I said, "did I miss it this year? I hope I didn't miss it." I didn't. Her post went up today and here are my responses, describing my life through the book titles I've read so far this year. Feel free to pick it up and run with it yourself. Be sure to drop us a link in the comments so we can come see your answers though. If you don't have your own blog, feel free to leave your responses in the comments! And here we go, MY LIFE AS A BOOK 2011:

One time at band/summer camp, I: Vainished (Joe Finder)

Weekends at my house are: Three Seconds (Roslund & Hellstrom) - blasted things are never long enough! ;-)

My neighbor is: On the Wrong Track (Steve Hockensmith)

My boss is: (the) Silent Enemy (Thomas Young)

My ex was: Delirious (Daniel Palmer)

My superhero secret identity is: The Nightmare Thief (Meg Gardner)

You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because: You're Next (Gregg Hurwitz)

I’d win a gold medal in: The Last Strip Tease (Michael Wiley)

I’d pay good money for: (a) Portrait of a Spy (Daniel Silva)

If I were president, I would: Fall from Grace (Wayne Arhurson)

When I don’t have good books, I: (start a) Slugfest (Rosemary Harris)

Loud talkers at the movies should be: Long Gone (Alafair Burke)

O.k., there's my contribution. I can't wait to read yours next!

Great answers, Jen! This also reminds me that I HAVE to read Gregg Hurwitz's novel. Thanks, much.

Haha! Sooo, if you were president, you plan on fooling around with interns? I guess that ties in with how you can do a gold-medal-worthy striptease.

Thanks for playing and being so enthusiastic about it, Jen!
