Brittney tried to find the creator of this tag, but couldn’t.
1. What Book has been on your shelves the longest?
My current shelves…The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you will read next?
What I might read next
3. What book did everyone like, but you hated?
Outlander. I have no love for this book.
4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?
The Romanovs: 1613-1918 by Simon Sebag Montefiore
I really do want to read it but it’s a huge history book and I am a mood reader.
5. Which book are you saving for retirement?
6. Last page: Do you read it first or wait to the end?
Always wait until the end.
7. Acknowledgments: Are they a waste of paper and ink or interesting?
They are interesting.
8. Which book character would you switch places with?
None of them. Either I would be in a fantasy world or in Regency/Victorian London. I like my modern conveniences a little too much for that.
9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life?
Harry Potter. I put off starting these books for so long. The first 4 were out before I finally picked up the first one. I refused to read them because they were so popular, typical teenager I know. What made me pick them up was they started to be banned so I wanted to know what all of the fuss was about.
10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.
Brittney @ Perfectly Tolerable got me a signed copy of The Omega Objection by G. L. Carriger (Gail Carriger) while she was at the Denver Comic Con. Gail is my favorite author so this meant a lot to me.
11. Have you ever given away a book for a special reason to a special person?
This may sound silly but its the first thing I thought about.
A while back I had a co-worker that had a house fire. Most of her things were saveable but had to be professionally cleaned. If memory serves me the fire was a shortage in the kitchen and the response time was wonderful and most things were just water damaged. Due to insurances paying well they were not accepting any help at this time. A short time before this she let me borrow her favorite book, which I had already given back. This book had been out of print for more than a decade or two so I went on a search for it so she would have something for comfort.
The book was The Nonsuch lure by Mary Luke. If you ever come across it you should pick it up.
12. Which book has been with you the most places?
I am going to have to say The Wrong Number by R.L Stine. I still have my very battered copy that I read way back when. This is also the book that sparked my love of reading.
13. Any ‘required reading’ you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?
Nope, the book that I hated then I still feel the same way. Of Mice and Men.
14. Used or brand new?
Either is fine as long as it’s in good condition.
15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?
Yes. Angels & Demons I do not know why I never continued the series.
16. Have you ever seen a movie that you liked more than the book?
Don’t come after me…The Lord of the Rings Movies
17. A book that’s made you hungry?
I can’t think of any that does. I don’t snack while I am reading.
18. Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?
My friends Tina and Kelly
19. Most read authors?
RL Stine (that I can remember) @ 55
Gail Carriger @ 20
Charlaine Harris @ 17
J.K. Rowling @ 15
20. Ship from two different books?
I have no idea why these two came to mind. Audrey Rose from Stalking Jack the Ripper and Nikolai Lantsov from the Grisha Books.
As always feel no pressure to do this.
