You call that writing?
Ah crap. Who invited you?
You just keep opening the door.
Oh look! A shooting star!
Right up there. See? You can see it through this window.
I thought, perhaps, if I can't manage an entire blog post I might be able to at least make a list. List making can sometimes lead to something bigger, better and brighter. As it is Saturday and Seven is the perfect number for the anal retentive in me--it is, after all odd. I thought making lists of seven on Saturday's might be challenging and fun. Wonderful idea...right? But what shall the list topics be? That will be the sticky, gooey part. Feel free to offer list suggestions. I might even request them via Facebook and Twitter.
For this first Saturday Seven I have chosen the rather safe and perhaps boring topic of: Books.
I've spent some time over the past year purging shelves of books. I have tried to limit myself to only keeping books I still have a desire to read (because when I go to the book store to purchase ONE book, I buy FIVE). Some of the books I've read have touched me so deeply that I want to read them again. Today I recall the seven books I'd read again. That is, provided I can ever find the time to reread them. So, without further ado, completely off the top o' me head - with the occasional glance at my collection....my List of Seven. :)
- East of Eden, John Steinbeck
- Fearless Living, Rhonda Britten
- The Seven People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom
- The Last Lecture, Randy Pausch
- The Road, Cormac McCarthy
- The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Carson McCullers
- A Woman's Worth, Marianne Williamson
- The Art of the Possible, Alexandra Stoddard
Oy. You know, no one likes a smarty-pants.
Are there books you've read that touched you so deeply that you'd love to read them again? I'd be deeply honored if you'd leave your List of Seven in the comments below.
