Meme from Cherry Pie

I haven't done a meme before, and have no idea what the word means (guess I could google), but I thought that, since this one is about books, I'd do okay. Wrong! I've been reading story books to small children for the past seven (almost eight) years now, and not much else. Guess I'll have to come up with my own meme, featuring books like Winnie the Pooh, The Wind in the Willows, Many Moons, and Bread and Jam for Frances if I'm going to dazzle anyone with how well read I am. There are quite a few on Cherry Pie's list that I'd like to read, someday!

Meme instructions: Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you might read, cross out the ones you won't, underline the ones on your book shelf*, and place parentheses around the ones you've never even heard of.

*Many thanks to Cece for clear, simple instructions on crossing things out. I managed to cross out Everything in my Entire blog before finally getting it right.

Hey. I finally tagged someone. I had Catch-22 on my shelf for years before I finally forced myself to read it. It was quite good in the end.

His Dark Materials are a trilogy of quite simply brilliant children's fantasy books ( probably best at ages 10-14 minimum). But any grown-up can't help but be astounded by them. I think you'd enjoy.

I'll go find that recipe now x

Oh! And I think it is pronounced Me Me - as in " Lets talk about Me! Me! Me!" That's just my interpetation of it anyway.
