Carol at Magistramater has created a meme since yesterday was the birthdate of three famous authors. I am, of course, a day late, but I decided to participate anyway.
The November 29 Birthday Meme
(Louisa May Alcott, C.S. Lewis, Madeleine L’Engle)
Answer for one, both, or all authors.
1. What was the first [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] book you read?
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
A Wrinkle in Time
2. If you could be a [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] character for a day, who would you be?
Probably Jo from Little Women, but then I’d tell Laurie yes! Especially Laurie as played by Christian Bale.
3. Do you prefer [Alcott?, Lewis, L'Engle]‘s fiction or nonfiction?
I’ve never read any of Alcott’s non-fiction – did she write any? For Lewis, probably non-fiction, but it’s really close. I’ve only read L’Engle’s children’s fiction, and I enjoy it. But A Circle of Quiet was truly wonderful. I can’t choose!
4. Which [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] book would you recommend to any reader?
Alcott – Little Women to every female reader of any age.
Lewis – The Chronicles of Narnia to everyone.
L’Engle – A Wrinkle in Time to kids, A Circle of Quiet to women.
5. Which [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] book did you dislike?
I can’t think of any.
6. What is your favorite [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] quote?
I’m going to skip this one cause I’m too lazy to go look them up.
7. Which [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] book would you like to read next?
I’ve always wanted to read Alcott’s letters. I plan to read Surprised by Joy sometimes soon, and also the next of L’Engle’s journals – whichever one comes after A Circle of Quiet. It might be The Summer of the Great-Grandmother.
8. What biography of [Alcott, Lewis, L'Engle] would you recommend?
Jack’s Life by Douglas Gresham, C. S. Lewis’ step-son
9. Rate the ALL authors by order of preference.
Let me know if you decide to do this one!
