I’ve decided to do tags this year! Or as many as I’m able should I be tagged or see an interesting one open to all 🙂 I was tagged by the lovely Brittany at Perfectly Tolerable. I only just started following her blog and in fact she found me first! She’s got some great posts and I love this simple tag 🙂
Amazon.com has a list of “100 Books to Read in a Lifetime” that’s been compiled by Amazon’s editors, and the question is, how many of Amazon’s recommended books have you read? As usual with tags there’s some rules but simple ones:
- Include the link to Amazon’s List
- Tag the creator of the meme (Perfectly Tolerable)
- Tag and thank the Person that tagged you- that would be me 🙂
- Copy the list below and indicate which ones you have read
- Tally up your total
- Comment on the post you were tagged in and let them know how many you read
- Tag 5 new people! (And comment on one of their posts to let them know you tagged them)
Unfortunately I’ve not even heard of some these authors let alone read their books! Oh well, my score is going to be abysmal but here we go 😀 … Oh and although you only have to say ‘yes’ I’ve decided to add notes including which books I want to read although some have been on my tbr pile since I was a teenager! 😮
*The names of book titles US versions rather than UK.
So as you can see my total score is….7 out of 100! (more if the picture books count!)
If only some of the classics and old books I’ve read appeared on this list: Crime and Punishment, Lord of the Flies, Short Stories by Oscar Wilde, etc. my score might have been a lot higher…but alas according to Amazon’s editors I need to read a lot more in my lifetime!
I’ve enjoyed doing this tag, it’s fun and simple to do and nice to compare books with others. I nominate…Everyone! I’m not going to nominate anyone specific to do this tag (I feel strange picking specific people who might not want to or missing out those who do) but urge anyone who has enjoyed seeing this and who wants to, please take part…and you can nominate me as your tagger 🙂
How many books have you read from this list? Are there any that you want to read, or any that you’ve never heard of? Let me know your thoughts I’d love to hear from you 🙂
You can also follow My Peacock Books in these places too if you’d like 🙂 !
