Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. This week, she asks: If you knew you only had 30 days left to live, would books and reading still hold such a great priority in your life? Or, would you set aside your reading to do something else, spend more of your time elsewhere? What would you do, instead?
Well, first off, if I only had 30 days to live and I knew about it, I'd spend every single hour with my family and my friends. I would write letters to my loved ones, to tell them how I feel for them, and all that. I would probably try out things I've never tried before -- although I still would never bungee jump!
Reading-wise, I'll most likely pick up and reread some of my old favorites. The Harry Potter series, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.. I might read The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint Exupery, 100 Love Sonnets by Pablo Neruda again. I'll stick to them, just because they make up my "reading life" in a lot of ways, and I'd want to go back to them. To be honest though, I don't know if I'd actually read them or just skim through them. In fact, I'll probably just bring them along with me wherever I go so they can keep me company in the end.. :)
