Life according to literature

I picked this up a few minutes ago from Of Books and Bicycles. The speed of the internets! I believe I was tagged on FB, but am doing it here instead.

Using only books you have read this year (2009) answer the questions, without repeating a book title. I think the answers would change very much depending on mood.

Describe yourself: Provincial Lady Goes Further (E. M. Delafield)

How do you feel: Seven Types of Ambiguity (Elliot Perlman)

Describe where you currently live: We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Shirley Jackson)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? A House in the Country (Jocelyn Playfair)

Your favorite form of transportation: Thames: The Biography (Peter Ackroyd)

Your best friend is: Frederica (Georgette Heyer)

You and your friends are: Excellent Women (Barbara Pym)

What’s the weather like: The Rain Before it Falls (Jonathon Coe)

You fear: Headhunters (Peter Lovesey)

What is the best advice you have to give: To Love and Be Wise (Josephine Tey)

Thought for the day: Why Shoot the Butler? (Georgette Heyer)

How I would like to die: Disco for the Departed (Colin Cotterill)

My soul’s present condition: Light and Darkness (John Harvey)

I've run out of books. Again.

  1. I’m afraid that when I finally get around to doing this one I’m going to find no appropriate book titles for the categories. We’ll see. I love where you live now, as well as how you’d like to die.
