End of the book meme.

No time to read today but two no-shows means time to blog.
I divided this meme into bits. If you want to go back to the original meme and the links to where I got it from please go back to this post.

31. Dune (Frank Herbert) Read years ago. Wasn’t my favorite Sci Fi Novel.
32. The Notebook (Nicholas Sparks)—never read. Probably won’t.
33. Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand)—read a lot of Ayn Rand as a teenager. Not sure if it would have same fascination as adult, but it might.
34. 1984 (Orwell)—does anyone get through high school without reading this?
35. The Mists of Avalon (Marion Zimmer Bradley)—I don’t remember this well but I really liked some of her fantasy novels.
36. The Pillars of the Earth (Ken Follett)—tried but couldn’t get into it. Have liked others by this author.
37. The Power of One (Bryce Courtenay)—Not sure if I know enough about this to comment. Definitely haven’t read.
38. I Know This Much is True (Wally Lamb)—I really liked this one. Enough to re-read someday. Plus I have a weakness for books with a mental health theme. I’d recommend this one highly.
39. The Red Tent (Anita Diamant)—haven’t read. Maybe will someday.
40. The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho)—I think I bought this used and it is somewhere on my TBR pile.
41. The Clan of the Cave Bear (Jean M. Auel)—couldn’t get into it.
42. The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini)—I really liked this book and would recommend it although it had one of the saddest scenes in any book I’ve ever read.
43. Confessions of a Shopaholic (Sophie Kinsella)—Read. So far I haven’t become a chick-lit fan. I read a lot of genre novels but chick-lit isn’t catching me.
44. The Five People You Meet In Heaven (Mitch Albom)—haven’t read.
45. The Bible—not in its entirety. We’ll leave the whole faith issue out right now. I’m discussing literature.
46. Anna Karenina (Tolstoy)—read years ago. Definitely a chunkster. Probably one of those must read novels. It was long enough ago that I don’t remember it well.

I've only read a few on this list. Hayley has The Alchemist. I keep meaning to read it, but doubt she even knows where it is. She went from her Egyptian phase (which, by the way, lasted for nearly 10 years...but she knows about all she's going to whilst living in the U.P.) to an alchemy phase. She's still interested in both, but is now more into Asian stuff, especially Anime/Manga (of which the alchemy is still a part).

The Kite Runner:yes, a personal favourite and I know which scene you mean.
Clan of the Cave Bear: I loved the whole saga, Earth's Children, of which this is the first though it is often repetitive especially the love making scenes.
