My day in books

(Inspired by Margaret of BooksPlease).

A funny meme where you just complete the sentences using  titles of books you have read this year.

I began the day with Falling Off Air.

Fractured and Found Wanting on my way to work I saw The Hanging Wood

and walked by Bloodhounds to avoid The Suspicions of Mr Whicher

but I made sure to stop at Blacklands.

In the office, my boss noticed The Sign and said  ”Three Weeks to Say Goodbye”

before he sent me to research Overkill.

At lunch with The Big O and Misterioso I noticed A Trace of Smoke

under Gallows Lane,  then went back to my desk to Hide My Eyes. 

Later, on the journey home, I bought Diamond Dust

because I have Lady Audley´s Secret.

Then settling down for the evening, I picked up Bruno, Chief of Police

and we studied The Demise of the Soccer Moms,

before saying goodnight to Mystery Man.

    Very cleverly done, I know these types of post take such a long time to put together.

  2. Margot Kinberg says:

    Dorte – Oh, I absolutely love it! I’m so glad you did this :-). I think my favourite one is what your boss says to you. This is terrific!

  3. Wonderful, Dorte! Oh, I wonder who the Mystery Man is? I like the way you have expanded this meme.

  4. Tracy: this one wasn´t difficult as you don´t need that many books. It would be fun if you played along.
    Margot: that one about the boss is also my own favourite. As soon as I found that book, I knew where to put it 😉
    Margaret: I had read far too many funny books so I had to add a few extra.

    You said goodnight to the mystery man? Does your husband know? 😀

    I’m HARD PRESS’D to find any fault with the story!

  7. Awesome answers! Love the meme.

  8. Barbara: not unless you tell him 😉

    Linda: that is praise indeed 😉

    Clarissa: yes, they are quite irresistible, aren´t they?

    Your titles fit perfectly! So often things like this don’t sound quite “right”, but yours worked so well!
    This was fun. 🙂

    Great answers to that meme. Very funny. I don’t know if I read that many adaptable titles, but I’ll try.
    Want to wish you and your family happy holidays and a Great New Year of Good Books!
    I will wish for peace in 2012, but I have a feeling that it’s a pipe dream. I saw and heard a rendition of the beautiful Dona Nobis Pacem, which my sister and I used to sing together.

  11. Thank you, Kelly 🙂

    And I wish you a happy Christmas and New Year, Kathy!

    And I very much appreciate that Kerrie over at Mysteries in Paradise will carry on the Global Book Challenge tradition. It is so helpful to me, and resulted in me reading much that I would not have read without it. So on to a new year of international reading, learning — and, vicarious vacations.

  13. Kathy: I am also glad someone else is willing to take over.
