The Boat

I don't have all that much time to devote to talking tonight, so I will quickly rattle off the things upmost in my mind.

  1. No body has thought to suggest a book for the 100 Books to Read Before You Die list in such a long time.  I know that I have hundreds of books that I think you should all read before you die, so you must have at least a couple.  So why don't you think of one, or two, or even three of your favourites, the ones that you want to make the world acknowledge, ones that have slipped through the fingers of society and have settled at the bottom of the shelf to be discovered for its greatness by YOU.  Those are the ones that you just have got to share.  I know that you know what I mean. 
  2. I would like you all to know that I am someone that you can just ramble about what you're reading to.  I do it to you, so you can certainly ramble on back.  What are you reading at the moment?  What do you love about it?  What is it that is burning on your mind to just say, but no one you know would value hearing it?  That is the sort of stuff you can unload here, because we're book-lovers and I'm pretty sure that everyone who reads Bouquets is in the same boat.  That's what Bouquets is trying to be - the boat that we're all in.  Hmm.  That kind of cute and comical.  Is it just me?
That's all that's floating about on the surface of my mind right this moment!  Do you think maybe we can achieve some of these things?

  1. Ooh, I have some books to add :) They are: Les Miserable, Bleak House, Anna Karenina, The Messenger, The Book Thief, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Of a Boy, and A Fraction of the Whole :) Feel free not to add all of them, I always get a bit carried away when it comes to books!! The Messenger, The Book Thief and A Fraction of the Whole are all Australian, maybe that's why I relate so well to them? I just finished A Fraction of the Whole, if you haven't read it you really should! It's this absolutely insane philosophical novel, I think you'd like it!
