My World...According to the Books I've Read

I'd seen this going around the blogosphere and found it amusing, although I had no desire to do it myself. I didn't... until I started reading posts in my Google reader yesterday and discovered that some fellow crime fiction readers had put their own spin on it.

Originally you were supposed to answer the following questions using the titles of books you've read so far this year. Dorte, Bernadette, Maxine and Crimeficreader have all done this using the titles of crime fiction books they've read this year. How could I not try this, too?

Here goes nothin'!

  1. Glad you had fun too Cathy. Excellent advice about corpses:)

  2. I also loved your thought for the day. That one made me laugh out loud.

  3. This really is a terrific meme. So much fun. Good thought for the day and I like how you feel! All too often life is to me as it is to you.

  4. Along with retirement homes, unorganized corpses are murder! Good advice . . .although I'll procrastinate on that one, thank you very much. Fun meme.

  5. Love this meme! When the Devil Holds the Candle might be my favorite title in all the posts I've seen :)

  6. I'm glad you all enjoyed this. It was fun to try to choose the crime fiction titles that had at least a modicum of entertainment value!

  7. I've seen several of these lately but I do like this particular interpretation!

  8. Jenn--That's what made me decide to go ahead and do it! LOL


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
