The 100 Books Tag
What is the 100th book on your TBR list?
Wasn't planning on math, but nonetheless: I’m on #74 right now, so #174 is Shane, by Jack Schaefer
Take your current book, open it to page 100, and quote a few sentences that you like.
This happens to be Great Expectations, chapter XIV, first page:
I used to stand about the churchyard on Sunday evenings when night was falling, comparing my own perspective with the windy marsh view, and making out some likeness between them by thinking how flat and low both were, and how on both there came an unknown way and a dark mist and then the sea.
When you are 100, what author(s) do you know you will still be re-reading regularly?
I feel inclined to first say that my Great-Grandfather lived to 101 and my Grandmother lived to 104. So, this could happen. I know I’ll still be rereading Tolkien and Dickens. Besides them, I’ll probably still be working on the 1000 Greatest Novels.
Link to your 100th post. Do you still agree with it?
It was a Top Ten Tuesday, asking for the most anticipated book releases of 2015. Yeah, I still agree with it.
If someone gave you £100, which would be the five books you would rush to buy?
Let’s see £100 would give me $121.89 (ya know, I started a reading blog so there wouldn’t be math…GRRR!). I’m after these…not sure I’d be able to get all five:
What book do you expect to be reading 100 days from now?
Ordinarily, this would be hard to figure with confidence (really? More math?), but I am fairly certain I’ll be somewhere in the middle of Les Misérables
Looking at The Guardian’s list of “The 100 greatest novels of all time”, how many have you read? Of the ones you haven’t, which ones would you most like to read? And which will you never read?
I’ve read 56 of them. I plan to read them all. In fact, I used this, and several others, to make a composite, now known as MY LIST (see the next question for more information)
Create your own 100-themed question to answer.
So, just like the previous question. From MY LIST, how many have you read, and from those you haven’t, which are you most likely to read?
If you've read this, consider yourself tagged. Of course, you are not compelled to answer, but your book blogging license may be revoked if you don't.
