Oh, don't get your hopes up -- it's a meme about BOOKS that I saw last month over at Tammy Theriault's blog and that I thought might be fun to do.
WRATH: With which author do you have a love/hate relationship?
For obvious reasons, I'd have to say Herman Melville at the moment, that long-winded circuitous bastard.
GLUTTONY: What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
I re-read The Lord of the Rings three times. I'm pretty sure I re-read Watership Down at least as many times, if not more. Alas, these days I have no time to re-read any books. I do have time, however, to fart around on the internet for hours. Hmmm.
GREED: What is your most inexpensive book?
Is this a cagey way of asking if I've ever stolen a book? No, I never have. I'm a good girl, you know.
ENVY: What book would you like to receive most as a gift?
A Shakespeare First Folio so I could sell it for a gazillion bucks. What?
LUST: What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
I don't tend to lust after written characters but once they're portrayed by movie heart throbs, then my interest is piqued. Guess I'm just shallow that way. Of course, all of you already know of my inexplicable fascination with Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth which for years has been causing The Lesbian Nation to demand the return of my membership card. So I won't elaborate further.
SLOTH: What books have you neglected to read due to laziness?
Don't think I can't hear you all saying "Moby-Dick" in unison, you Judgy McJudges.
PRIDE: What books do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
I guess mentioning the latest issue of Marvel's comic book Loki, Agent of Asgard isn't going to cut it, eh? You're all friggin snobs, you know that?
