I’ve been tagged by Susan at You Can Never Have Too Many Books with a book buzz meme. The meme originator is Amy at My Friend Amy. Here are the rules:

I am going to list three categories of books. 3 MUST Read Books, 3 Keep Your Eyes on These, and 3 Look For These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 3 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blog but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 3 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as they go around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing. Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.



Here are my selections
(stars are next to my additions):



3 MUST Read Books:

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

Tin-Roof Blow-down – James Lee Burke

*Goldberg: Variations by Gabriel Josipovici



3 Keep Your Eyes on These:

A Place Called Canterbury – Dudley Clendinen

Friend of the Devil – Peter Robinson

*Wild Nights! Stories About the Last Days of Poe, Dickinson, Twain, James, and Hemingway by Joyce Carol Oates



3 Look For These Soon:

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Private Patient – P.D. James

*Twenty Fragments of a Ravenous Youth by Xiaolu Guo

I’m supposed to tag three people but I don’t want to tag someone who might not want to play, so if you are reading this, and are in the mood, consider yourself tagged!
