Meme: Book Title Communication


WrittenWyrdd has apparently started up a new book meme. Since I haven’t done a meme in a while, I thought I’d do this one (it looked silly and fun). If you’d like to join in, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your version.

The challenge:

Complete the following sentences with book titles that you have read this year. Put the author of the book in parenthesis.

Simple enough, right?

I am: The Palm-wine Drinkard (Amos Tutuola)
I will never be: Harbinger (Jack Skillingstead)
I fear: The Left Hand of God (Paul Hoffman)
My best friend is: Ray in Reverse (Daniel Wallace)
What’s the weather like? This World We Live In… (Susan Beth Pfeffer)
Best Advice: Things Fall Apart (Chinua Achebe)
I’ve never been to: The City of Saints and Madmen (Jeff VanderMeer)
Favorite form of transport: Flight (Kazu Kibuishi)
I’ll never fit in at: In the Castle in My Skin (George Lamming)
How I’d like to die: An Idle King (J. W. Benford)
You and your friends are: The Reapers Are the Angels (Alden Bell)
Thought for the day: Why Darwin Matters (Michael Shermer)
Your soul’s present condition: Irreligion (John Allen Paulos)

A few of those don’t fit so well, but I did my best. Any thoughts?

Update (the following are folks who have added their own versions to their blogs)
