My Life According to the Books I've Read... (2)

Hello again!
Well, it's been a week full of celebrating one of the things we love the most....books!  With today being the final day of the 2010 Book Blogger Appreciation Week festivities, I wanted to do something a little different (*ahem*...sort of like the rest of the week of non-traditional BBAW posts), and yet still the same.  Am I confusing you yet?  Hopefully not because this post is all about fun AND interaction.

I stumbled upon a MEME of sorts about a year ago (actually it was August 31, 2009...but hey, who's REALLY counting...hehe) that I thought was rather interesting to say the least.  The title of it was (and still is to my knowledge) "My Life According to the Books I've Read".  Though there are many fun variations on it out there now, the original questions, as I saw it, were to be filled out every year and posted to your site.  The catch?  The answers ALL have to be titles of books you read during the past year!  It's not as easy as it sounds....but it IS lots of fun!  So as we close out BBAW for 2010, I present to you my answers and ask you to share yours!  Feel free to do a post of your own and leave a link in the comments or post your responses right here.  Here we go...

Some great answers, you are so right that doing this (or similar) is such fun - I particularly like your answers regarding your death and the current state of your soul, very good.

What a great idea! I would love to do this meme, but that means actually tracking the books I read... I've saved it and hope to track back to you sometime in early spring, when I actually do the post, too!
