The Book Bag: Touching the Surface and Enthralled

Posted by Katie L. Carroll on January 24, 2013 in Book Bag, Books, Family |

I have in my possession the infamous book bag. It’s kind of like the traveling pants of my sisters, my mom, my sister’s wife, and I. The bag has two quotes on it: “When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.” (Erasmus) and “My best friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.” (Abraham Lincoln).

There aren’t too many rules to the book bag. Add as many books as you want. Read as many books as you want. Keep it for as long as you want (or until you get tired of being harassed by the other bookees). When the bag cycles back to you, take out your old books and add in some new ones. There is a journal that goes along with it for jotting down your thoughts on your own books or others (or none).

Here is what is in the bag for me to choose from (I’ll probably try and read them all (if I haven’t already read them…I’m looking at you Will Grayson, Will Grayson), even though some of them are *gasp* adult books).

Code Name Verity   Tears of the Desert: A Memoir of Survival in Darfur   Lone Wolf

Will Grayson, Will Grayson   I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced   Between Shades of Gray   Say You're One of Them

The challenging part for me is to try and include books my twin-not-twin hasn’t already borrowed. Here are the books I will be adding to the bag. I thought Enthralled  would be a good one because it’s an anthology of short stories. The other bookees can read whatever stories tickle their fancy and skip the rest. Touching the Surface is by Kimberly Sabatini, who is an awesome person who wrote an awesome book, so of course I want everyone to read that one.
