Whatcha Reading? Meme
Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 10:29PM

I got tagged by Lisa for this meme. The instructions and my answers are below.  

I’m a reader who is always looking for a good book recommendation from friends, neighbors, people on planes, in waiting rooms, at the library.. wherever I happen to be. I find myself saying, “Whatcha reading?” several times a week!

In this meme, I’d like to know 5 things:

1. Whatcha reading?

2. How much of it have you read so far?

3. What’s it about? (in a nutshell! A sentence or two is enough)

4. What does the title refer to?

5. Would you recommend it?


1. I am reading one book and listening to another. 

2. Currently, I am about a quarter of the way through Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie and almost half way through listening to Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl.

3. Midnight's Children is a memoir about a person who was born at midnight on the day that India become an independent country.  G & S is about a New York times food critic who is making her way through the scene in NYC.

4. Midnight's Children refers to a group of kids who were born at midnight.  I am not sure yet what G & S title is a reference to.  Maybe I will find out soon.

5. I would recommend both of these books.

I am not sure who to tag, but I will say Planet Books, Birdlashes, and anyone else who would like to participate by leaving comments.
