It’s Book Apocalypse!

Book Apocalypse Banner

(awesome banner made by Cass!)

Many bloggers. Ten books. One bunker. It’s Book Apocalypse! Here’s the situation (from Bonjour, Cass!):

For mysterious reasons unknown to you, citizens of the world are suddenly panicking because the time of the Apocalypse has indeed come. You have been offered a place in the official Bonjour, Cass! bunker, sponsored by the Bonjour, Cass! Book Apocalypse Protection Agency (BCBAPA™). In order to secure your spot, you are required to submit a form listing the ten books from your to-be-read list to bring with you.

Today my application is up for consideration. Which books did I choose? Will I be approved? And what new word did I create to rhyme with orange? Find out over on Bonjour, Cass!

As for me, after a couple of “personal days” I’ll be back the rest of this week with a Classics Reclamation Project post, the Reading Buddies discussion post for The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, and maybe even some thoughts on Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. But today…Book Apocalypse!

    Loved your selections and I also think that on the basis of your improvised helmet alone (adorable!) that you deserved your spot!

      Thanks, Steph! I wonder how many rules that improvised helmet allowed me to break? :-)

    Erin, you made some great choices and I loved that you included The Deptford Trilogy, as that was one book that kept me pondering and questioning well after the last page was turned. I also liked that you included Jane Eyre. I am reading that one for the first time this month, and I am so excited!

      Thanks! Ooh, now I’m excited to get to the Deptford Trilogy. It’s funny, I’m already reading 2 of the 10 books I picked, after allowing them to languish on my shelves for years. Maybe I’ll end up getting to them all soon! I’m reading Jane Eyre for the first time right now as well. I’m really loving it, and I hope you do, too!

    That was very fantastic! I am glad you got approved. (Also, hear, hear for Jane Eyre n00bs!!)

      Thanks :-) Yes, I’m reading Jane Eyre now, actually, slowly so that I can savor…I know I only get to read it for the first time once!
