15 books in 15 minutes!

I've been tagged on this fabulous book meme by just about everyone I know, so do it if you want -- and if not?


Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Tag 15 friends, including me because I'm interested in seeing what books my friends choose.

2) The Crusades by Zoe Oldenbourg
3) Capote by Gerald Clarke
4) Dorothy Parker: What Fresh Hell Is This? by Marion Meade
5) The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis
6) If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits by Erma Bombeck
7) A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving

  1. Dear Muffy Bolding, I like your list. Oldenbourg would be my #1--her work influenced me a lot.

    My new book will be published in March.

    Best wishes,
