Sharing Books Meme

Recently Charlotte and I have been sharing our favourite books with Sophie and Gemma-Rose. We searched the bookshelves for books suitable for a ten and seven year old. Soon each of the girls had a wicker basket filled to the brim with unread books. All of them are old favourites of mine, which then gave me another idea. Why not share some of my other favourites with Charlotte?

Fifteen minutes and much bookshelf raiding later and Charlotte too had a basket of books to be read. Her eyes lit up as she contemplated reading all those books, many of which I had told her about quite often.

It was so much fun sharing my favourite books with my sisters that I had yet another idea. What about a book meme? I'd love to share my favourite books with all of you, and I'd love to see what books you like to read too. So, without further ado, here is my book meme.

  1. Good! I recently made a list of the my top 25 books anyway. Though do I have to name five books for every section?

  2. Thank you for tagging me Imogen!

  3. JT, no you don't have to. That's just how many I happened to end up with. You can name as many books as you like. Also, just tag as many people as you feel like. Thanks for joining in!

  4. That's OK Autumn. I'm quite excited about this meme because it's the first one I've ever started.

  5. Thank you so much for tagging me! I shall try and get around it shortly, it looks like sooo much fun!

    Have a lovely day!

  6. Thanks Jessica, I'm so glad that this meme is actually getting off the ground. I was afraid that no one would want to join in!

  7. You and Charlotte both have interesting lists, Immy. It's good to get new ideas:)

  8. Thank you for tagging me! I will put together a post soon. :)
