Life Books Challenge



Click here to go to the main page
Rules:
Part I: Choose Your Life Books
What are the books that, in some aspect, define you? Think about who you are in terms of spirituality, love, economics, values, worldview--the list could go on and on. These might be nonfiction, self-help, fiction, picture books, children's books, etc. Give us your life in books. To see SmallWorld's example, click here. After you've picked your life books, write a post and leave the link on Mr. Linky. Be sure to copy and paste the button above on your blog somewhere!

Part II: Discover Something New
Check out the blogs of other participants and find at least two titles to add to your TBR list. Let us know what books you are adding by linking a second time to Mr. Linky with (Something New) by your name.

Part III: Read the Books
When you've read the new books, write a review and leave a link to your post in the comments here.


I'm still thinking about my Life Books, but this sounded like an interesting challenge and I wanted to get a post up.
UPDATE: My Life Books are here.

Jessi, this challenge really makes me think...wow, not sure what I'll come up with. I'm not sure I've read enough to make sure I pick the right books to define me...

I know! I thought of three right off the bat, and now I'm trying to come up with some more. It's challenging, but fun. :)

I have never thought of life books. There are books I like so much, but I don't think they define me. This will need some more rumination.

This seems more difficult to me. I must be indefinable. Will have to look for books. HOw many do we need???

I have ten right now, and I think that's a good number. They're pretty eclectic; I think they'll sum me up nicely. :)
