A book is a literary compass that has the potential to direct our thoughts and actions:

"Everything we read stimulates our mind to think, and what we think determines what we desire, and desires are the seedbed of our actions. Given this iron law of human nature--from reading to thinking, to desiring, to acting--we are shaping our destiny by the ideas we choose to have enter our minds through print." - Fr. John Hardon, S.J., The Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan

Welcome to my own personal exploration of life through reading the great books of the world.

Title Blending Meme

I've never started a meme before, but I've always wanted to (Well, maybe not always, but at least since last Thursday. Anyway...) Here are the rules:

Blend two book titles together by using the last word of one title and the first word of the second title. If you want, you can blend the authors' names too. Like this:
  • The Divine Comedy 0f Errors by Dante Shakespeare
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince of Tides by J.K Conroy
  • The Canterbury Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Geoffrey Blume
  • The Screwtape Letters to a Young Poet by C.S. Rilke
and of course,
  • The Last Don Quixote by Mario de Cervantes.
Now it's your turn. Write as many or as few as you want. Tag six people. Extra credit for blending titles with my other two favorite books, Lord of the Rings and Master and Commander. Extra extra credit if you can find another title that blends with Don Quixote.

I tag Sylvia, Stefanie, John D., Love2Learn Mom, Maureen, Jean, and anyone else who wants to play.

Thanks for playing along everybody. I'm enjoying reading everyone's titles.

Oh, that's a good one! Thinking, thinking...

Thanks to everyone who has participated so far. One thing this exercise has taught me is that I need to be more clear in my instructions. I should have said that the last word of the first title needs to be the same as the first word of the second title, as in The Last Don Quixote (The Last Don and Don Quixote), or Love2Learn's The Man Who Knew Too Much Ado about Nothing (The Man Who Knew Too Much and Much Ado about Nothing).

Still, it's been fun so far and I've enjoyed reading everyone's titles.

I was tagged by Jean. Here'shttp://margmary.blogspot.com/2007/05/book-title-meme-revisited.html my (second attempt) at the book title meme. :) (I hope I did the html in this comment in the right place so it links to "Here" and not to anything else. We shall see... :)

I'm not sure my brain is up to this, but I'll give it some thought...
