My Life as a Book 2011


This is a fun meme hosted this year by Pop Culture Ned. All you have to do is finished sentences about yourself using only books read in 2011 and leave your answers in the comments at Pop Culture Ned. I couldn’t resist again this year. Meme: My Life as a Book 2010.

  1. José Ignacio – I’m so glad you played this game! Your answers are terrific :-). I probably wouldn’t last very long either if I were president – your answer there is inspired! And I very much like your answer to My Boss is, too :-).

  2. Interesting ex and weekends at your house, Jose Ignacio! I think I’d only want to last 3 seconds as president as well, if we are thinking of the USA, given all that Obama has had to put up with since getting elected.

  3. What Maxine said and you have no mercy at all? not even a little? Just teasing. Good job Jose.

  4. I really like your answers because you included a lot of international authors. I just finished MERCY (titled THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES here in the U.S.) and thought it was great. And you’d last a lot longer than I as president!

  5. Great answers! Very well thought out. And lots of variety in book titles and countries.

  6. Margot, Margaret, Dorte, Maxine, Cathy, Keishon, Pop Culture Nerd, Kathy, thank you very much for your comments. It was great fun to participate.
