For HB-Kira [I hope I've used it correctly]

Okaaaayyyy. I’ve been tagged by my dear HB [HB, what does Kira mean? I'm assuming it's a term of endearment, so...] and, I have a very embarrassing confession to make:

I don’t know what tagging means.

There. So I’ve said it.

Somebody, please. Answer me. If I’m going to be a blog-hick, then I might as well do it wholeheartedly. What is a tag? What does it imply?

And because it’s HB, I’m just going to trudge along and try to do what he and the others have done.

But. BUT.

This is a tough one.

One book that changed your life:

Many, at many points in my life. So many it’s hard to say. Writers who’ve affected me are Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Roddy Doyle, Shakespeare, Amrita Pritam and err… damn there are so many!

One book you have read more than once:

Paddy Clarke Ha ha ha, Much Ado About Nothing, Macbeth, English August… ya da ya da ya da…

One book you would want on a desert island:

Aghora I, II, II

One book that made you laugh:

Everything by PG Wodehouse, My evergreen love – Roddy Doyle, Spike Milligan, Stephen Fry [but he’s overrated], Alice In Wonderland, Ogden Nash, Much Ado About Nothing [that’s the way I want to fall in love…]

I am really beginning to get irritated with this one-book business. Poopy.

One book that made you cry:

Karoo by Steve Tesich, My evergreen love – Roddy Doyle [don’t even bother to ask anymore!], Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and many other books that I’ve read…

Damn. This is so unfair.

One book you wish had been written:

Roddy’s next book, Marquez’s next book…

One book you wish had never been written:


One book you are currently reading:


One book you have been meaning to read:

So so so many…


This was a most unsatisfactory list. Hmmm. I think I'll have to keep coming back and editing this defeatist list.

Great list, H! =)

Tagging is passing a task to someone who must also, in turn, pass the task to another one. I hope that answers it. =)

I don't know what "kira" means either. Did you read it somewhere in my blog?

I just found out where kira came from.

Sha-kira, ergo H-kira


Sorry for the confusion. =D

Thanks for doing it, H! =)

Now, spread the love!

H said...

Oh so THAT's where Kira came from! hmmm.

I don't know, somehow I feel this list was really unfair! it's like asking me who my favourite sibling is, or... I don't know. ever since I've written this tag-post out, there are times when I am driving or sleeping or eating or talking to someone and boom I remember a thousand books I wanted to add to the list... :-( so unfair lah!

Oh, I like GGM too! Haven't read him in a long time, though. And Shakespeare. And Alice in Wonderland. Great list!

H said...

GGM rocks! I'd written about my GGM obsession a few posts back too... sigh.

I feel like an evergreen GGM groupie.

Oh, to fall in love, Much Ado style!
