Another round of bookish fun...

Last year I did a post on how books are the answer to everything, and I thought it would be fun to revisit it with some new categories. Want to play, too? Just answer the following with titles of books that you've recently read and see what your books say about you.

Here are mine:
     Who you are: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie  (by Alan Bradley)
     Who you wanted to be when you were younger: Guitar Girl  (by Sarra Manning
     A Typical Day: Much Ado About Nothing  (Shakespeare)
     Where you want to be in a year: East of the Sun  (by Julia Gregson)
     Something you love: Castles in the Air  (by Judy Corbett)
     Something that scares you: The Uncertain Places (by Lisa Goldstein)
     Something you'd like to change: The Never List  (by Koethi Zan)
     Your hopes for the future: Belle Epoque  (by Elizabeth Ross) OR A Rather Lovely Inheritance  (by C.A. Belmond)

Play along. It's fun.
(And let me know what answers you come up with.)
