Top 10 Bookish Things I am Thankful for - Top Ten Tuesday (November 24, 2015)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

Top 10 bookish things I am thankful for
10. Clint Eastwood did not play the role of Atticus Finch
(don't get me wrong, I love Clint, but Atticus? Just sayin)
9. No more James Joyce novels on my quest
8. Aldous Huxley's vision of the future did not come to be
7. I didn't/don't live in the house at 124 Bluestone Ct.
6. George Orwell's vision of the future did not come to be
5. No one has made a remake of Gone with the Wind
4. Anthony Burgess' vision of the future did not come to be
3. My father was not like Anse Brundsen
2. None of my children were like Holden Caulfield
And the number one bookish thing I am thankful for...
1. Cormac McCarthy did not write The Lord of the Rings


  1. Hey, now wait a minute! The world has not ended, yet. There is still time for it to look like a mind-numb, emotionally-disconnected world without relationships, or a police state with Big Brother. It's starting to look and feel a lot like a combination of the two. But maybe I've been watching too much news.

    1. Yes...after posting I thought I should have written it as....has not yet come to be. ;-)

  2. Enjoyed reading the list. Enjoyed TOLW's creativity. I am most grateful for #5. So far at least, it indicates intelligence on the part of movie makers.
    Ruth's comment makes good points too.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Mary Ann. More synchronisity: one of the cable channels is doing 24 hours continuous GwtW.

  3. Your list is awesome!! And I agree about being thankful Aldous Huxley got it wrong! Yikes! And I'm super glad none of your kids turned out like Holden! :)
