Top 5 Books I Would Save From a Fire
This Top 5 Tuesday meme is hosted by the very lovely and super helpful Shanah at Bionic Bookworm. If you want to join in, please do. You can check out the fun topics selected for May. Today’s topic is Top 5 books I’d save from a fire.
As Shanah points out on her post today, don’t worry… my family and pets are safe! Now, what books will I rescue?
1 Pride and Prejudice
I’ve mentioned before that I am quite attached to my copy of P and P. It’s the same one I used for Literature class the two times we studied it in school. I’ve got all my annotations in there and I enjoy reading over my notes as I reread the story.
2 Harry Potter
I really like my Harry Potter books. I have the first four in a box collection and then the other hardbacks are right there next to them. They’ll be an easy save and one I’ll be happy to have.
3 Memoirs of a Geisha
Not that I’m attached to this book or anything. But after over 10 years of sitting on my bookshelf, I decided this is the year I will finally read it. No fire will stop me after all this time!
4 My Wedding Album
Not quite a storybook, unless you want to call it a story of our special day. But my husband and I lovingly sat and selected those pictures and where we wanted them to be placed. I spent hours looking at photos on my computer, tv screen and the low res catalogue to select just the right ones to be arranged and printed by the photographer. I don’t have that kind of time again to do over!
5 My Children’s Christmas Books
This one is a storybook (or three). For each of my sons we did Christmas photoshoots with various themes. Then for each of them I wrote a short story, put them with matching pictures and printed them. Every Christmas they come out of the box and we read the stories throughout the season. I’m keeping those.
Those are my five (yes Harry counts as one… it’s one story!). Which books would you save?
