I encourage anyone who has been tagged with the “four things” doohickey to pass this back up the line; I think perpetrators should have to come up with four new things (at least in the first four categories) every time another victim passes it back!
Four books I’d buy a friend

  1. East of Eden, John Steinbeck
  2. Narziss und Goldmund, Hermann Hesse
  3. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch, Alexander Solzhenitsyn
  4. The Moon and Sixpence, Somerset Maugham

Four books I’d buy an enemy (on condition they had to read ’em)

  1. Beloved, Toni Morrison
  2. A Million Little Pieces, that guy who was all over the news recently
  3. The Satanic Verses, Salman Rushdie
  4. Winnie the Pooh, AA Milne
