For those of you who are not following Kaizen Journaling on Facebook (you really should, for cool extra stuff that doesn’t make it to the blog), I recently posted several photos of my journals.
But one of them, is about this entry: My Life in Books. It’s a TV show on BBC 2, presented by Anne Robinson. She invites couple of celebrity guests who love reading, and asks them for five books which are important to them. Inspired by the show, I decided to do my own entry in my journal. (You can see a full size picture on Facebook)
If you can’t read it clearly, here are the books:
1. Childhood Favourite – 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
2. Teenage Years – Persuasion by Jane Austen
3. Early Twenties – Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop
4. Late Twenties – Proust was a Neuroscientist by Jonah Lehrer
5. Late Twenties – A Writer’s Diary by Virginia Woolf
At the end of the show, they ask the person what they think their list of books says about them. I haven’t journaled about that part yet, but I would like to ask you. Reading at the list above, what is the impression you get? What do you think it says about me?
ACTION YOU CAN TAKE TODAY:
Of course above question is not your action. That’s just for you to share your opinions and feed my curiosity :-). Your action is to do an entry for yourself. What would be the books for YOUR LIFE IN BOOKS? If you do the entry, feel free to send me an image by email and I may share some of them here, or if you post it anywhere, leave the link in the comments below.
