Trifecta of Birthdays Meme

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?

Little Women
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!
