Behave yourselves while I am away

Right, I need to finish up at work, pack for everyone, find someone to feed the cat while we are gone (oops! Almost forgot that one!) and empty the fridge of anything likely to go yucky. No internet access down in the Lake District so I won't be able to say Hi for a week or so. Be good while I am away. You can have a couple of friends round, there are drinks in the fridge. No wild parties or at least, if you do, make sure you clean up really well. And to keep you amused, this meme-type thing which I saw at Zoot's and since it's about books, I couldn't resist. I've done it, and if you want to do it too, knock yourselves out. Just leave me a comment so I can come over and compare notes.

Bold those you’ve read.

Italicize books you have started but couldn’t finish.

Add an asterisk* to those you have read more than once.

Underline those on your To Be Read list. (Be honest!)

  1. You really didn't have time to do that while getting organised to go away, did you?

    Still, hope you had a lovely time. The Lake District! in this gorgeous weather! you're so lucky!

    We're off to Rome for a few days but we have to go on one of those flying things that fall out of the sky from time to time. Right now, I'd rather come with you...
