I’ve Been Tagged (The Horror… The Horror…)

Trish over at Hey Lady!  Watcha Readin’? tagged me with this.  I’m so new at this that I don’t even know what meme means.  I mean, I have an idea, but not really…

Here’s how it goes (by Trish):

My Friend Amy (edited by Don: actually Trish’s friend Amy, but you know how blog names go) started the whole thing and said: I am going to list three categories of books. 3 MUST Read Books, 3 Keep Your Eyes on These, and 3 Look For These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 3 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blog but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 3 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as it goes around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so someone can see how the lists are changing as they go around the blogosphere. Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.

  1. Memes can be fun, but I’ve put the kabosh on them on my site with a meme killer. See the site for the link, if they get too annoying. Looks like you’re “hanging” in the same circles I’m in, with Koolaid Mom and Amy.

    I have seen them and this is my first tag. I’m still trying to figure out just what meme means.

  2. Oh gosh Don! I don’t know what a “meme” is either! The only meme I ever heard of was the “Rick Roll”…haha!

    I’m sure I can figure it out!!!

    Ummm…Thanks for tagging me?


    I hope you are still thankful(?) when you finish…

  3. Wait…I’m confused. (Nothing new there).

    Do I have to copy all three lists and add my suggestions? Or just one list?

    Durrh…It’s very late…maybe I should mind my meme in the morning!

    Trish said to do all three – replacing one book (of your choice) in each group of three. I’d wait, it takes a bit of time.

  4. I will definitely have to do it tomorrow! I think it’ll be fun though!

  5. Don,
    Well, I only did one list, but it is posted. Thanks that was fun, although if I had tried to do all the lists I would not be saying that!

  6. A meme is basically one thing that everyone answers. There’s Booking Through Thursday, where you go grab the question, and there’s the kind where it gets passed around, like this one.

    But to anyone who’s doing it, you only have to do ONE LIST. I’m just an overachiever so added to each list from each person who tagged me.

    I swear I commented on this post already…but maybe I just responded to the comment you left? Sometimes I’m surprised I can remember my name in the morning. 🙂

  7. Chute. I don’t think my definition is very clear. Hang on…


    That explains it well. Better than me, at least. 😀

  8. Oh yay! Trish says I only have to do one list!! That takes a little of the pressure off…haha!


    I didn’t get to it today…but will tomorrow!
