Tuesday Things



This week's question: Legacy libraries. With which legacy libraries do you share books? Tell us a little about a couple of them and what you share.

How much fun was this!! Thank you BB, as you always come up with good questions for us. Here is my list:

Marilyn Monroe - 1
  • Hawaii>


  • Alfred Deakin - 1
  • Pride and Prejudice


  • Carl Sandburg - 4
  • A Lantern in Her Hand

  • Pride and Prejudice

  • The Good Earth

  • My Antonia


  • Earnest Hemingway -2
  • Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

  • Pride and Prejudice


  • William Butler Yeats - 1
  • Pride and Prejudice


  • Sylvia Plath - 1
  • Cranford


  • Theodore Dreiser - 1
  • My Antonia


  • Walker Percy - 2
  • Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

  • Pride and Prejudice


  • Sir Walter Scott - 1
  • Emma



  • I found this wonderful because it brought to mind some of my very favorite books - the book most shared was Pride and Prejudice, and the book that I was most happy people had read was Let Us Now Praise Famous Men.

    For your second question, I will have to think about it. My mother has been in the hospital for the last three weeks and I am almost brain dead. She has been moved to a physical rehabilitation center, so things are looking up and I may get some sleep! I did get some reading done at the hospital so at least there was that! Thank you for keeping us thinking and sharing.

    Hmmmm, I must not have entered P&P or Emma into my LT because I have those but they didn't show up.

    Of course, I wasn't using the statistics feature. Thanks for the advice! I'll check it out.

    I haven't added Emma yet, but I've got Pride and Prejudice on mine as well!

    Wow - I've just started entering my books as I just learned about this part of the site this morning! I've got 2 with Marilyn Monroe and 6 with Ernest Hemingway!

    This was fun - to see the rest of my list: http://wendisbookcorner.blogspot.com/2008/10/tuesday-thingers_28.html

    I own A Lantern in Her Hand, too! You don't see that one come up often.

    Let Us Now Praise Famous men is certainly unforgettable. This was my first Tuesday Thinger post and it was great fun to do.

    I had the most interesting overlap with Sylvia Plath's library.

    I hope your mother continues to recuperate, LibrarysCat.
