You must be honest
You must answer all the questions
You must tag at least 4 people
1. Which Book Has Been On Your Shelf The Longest?
Probably Meet Kit from when I was four, or the Nurse Nancy Golden Book I got about the same time.
2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you'll read next?
Currently I am reading Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott. I am loving it so much, especially the dear characters. I think the last thing I read was a re-read of The Last Battle by C. S. Lewis. And next will be Freckles by Gene Stratton-Porter.
3. What book did everyone like but you hated?
No book comes to mind.
4. What book do you keep telling yourself you'll read but you probably won't?
I have so many I keep telling myself I'll read and I hope to read them all. . .one day. . .and who knows if I will or not? Not me!
5. What books are you saving for retirement?
As in, books that are so long I won't read them now, or books that are special so I want to keep them? ??? I'm not sure.
6. Last page: Read it first or wait until the end?
Uh. . .I sometimes do a flip over the pages I haven't read yet, but I never read the last page first!! Though admittedly I once read a book that was a tad boring and had a predictable plotline, so when I was half way through I skipped to the last chapter and read it before giving it back to the library. 😉
7. Acknowledgments: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?
I like reading acknowledgements. It's fun to see a bit of what the author did to make their book a finished product.
8. Which book character would you switch places with?
This question stumped me. Really! I usually would have an answer. . .stick me somewhere in Lewis's, Tolkien's, Alcott's or Montgomery's books and I hope I'll survive and be happy. 😀
9. Do you have a book that reminds of you something specific in your life? (Place, time, person)
The Annotated Hobbit we got when my sisters and I were "Hobbit" crazy.
10. Name an interesting book that you acquired in an interesting way.
After I read the first few Anne books, we didn't have the rest. So my pitiful cries for the next one was answered by my wonderful mother ordering the rest along with several other LMM books. ❤
11. Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?
Methinks I probably have for Christmas or birthdays.
12. Which book has been with you most places?
Well. . .Pollyanna was with me on a long trip, but then so was Emily Climbs by L. M. Montgomery. And whatever book I'm reading goes all around the house with me.
13. Any required reading in High School that wasn't so bad two years later?
Honestly I can't think of any required High School reading. . .
14. Used or brand new?
I like both, though the way brand new books won't stay open on their own is a bit irritating, but it's fun to be the first to start breaking them in.
15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?
16. Have you ever seen a movie you liked more then the book?
Does saying that I liked what happens concerning the Arkenstone in The Hobbit movie better that what happened in the book count? 😊
17. Have you ever read a book that made you hungry (cook books included)?
Farmer Boy. Only I'm not sure if it made me hungry; more likely towards the opposite effect because of all the food that was talked about. 😉 The Golden Picnic in Anne of Avonlea made me want to have a picnic, so I'll say that.
18. Who is the person whose book advice you'll always take?
19. Is there a book out of your comfort zone (e.g outside your usual reading genre) that you ended up loving?
Well now, can't say I've read any thing out of my comfort zone, but if I did I apparently didn't end up loving it!
And now, I pass the tag to SW, Chloe, Lily, and Hope Ann.
