Well done! I'm working on my meme, but it's too wordy! I need a machete!

Petty Witter said...

I know just what you mean Bybee, once I get started I find it difficult to stop - especially when the topic is books.

Jenners said...

I love that you have a live-in dictionary to ask about new words!!!

Petty Witter said...

Yes he has his uses - a walking, talking dictionary being one of them.

Kelly said...

Ah, a woman after my own heart!

I think you feel about books much the same way I do.

Dorte H said...

We agree on at least two thirds of these answers :D

Petty Witter said...

Might I ask what those are Dorte?

Dorte H said...

Of course. We agree on 2,3,4,5,6, 10,11, 12,14 :D

Not surprising that we don´t share favourite books, is it? We agree on nearly all the others.
I don´t snack very often when I read, but that is because I try to think of my weight. I eat sweets Saturday night, though, and sometimes I both read and watch TV.
