I was tagged by Perfectly Tolerable.  Please check out her blog. I am not a person who does a lot of tags. In fact, I have saved lots of ones I have been tagged in, so thought I would try to do some of them. Here goes:

Rules:

  • Friends don’t lie.
  • You must answer all the questions
  • You must tag 4 people

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Well, I have my shelf on Goodreads, but also many that I have on my physical bookshelf at home. I an not sure which one I have had the longest but I am going to guess it is Harry Potter.

I have the whole set and have seen all the movies, but this is the only one I have read.

 

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?

Last Read: Forever at Conwenna Cove by Darcie Boleyn

Forever at Conwenna Cove

Current Read: Watching Glass Shatterby James J. Cudney

Watching Glass Shatter

Next Read: After Anna byLisa Scottoline

3. What book did everyone like but you hated?

I don’t think there was one. There might have been one that I didn’t like as much as others, but not hated.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably wont?

I think it would be Pride and Prejudice byJane Austen

Pride and Prejudice

5. What book are you saving for your retirement?

Being as I am already retired, I am not saving anything.

6. Last page: Read it first or wait till the end?

I never read the last page first, but I sometimes peak when I am partway into the book.

7. Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?

I depends. Sometimes I read them and like them, other times, they are a bore.

8. Which book character would you switch places with?

Hmmm, this is a tough question. I am not sure. I don’t think I would want to go back in time because the lives of women were tougher. I do like D. D. Warren from Lisa Gardner’s series. She is tough, smart and has a family so I think maybe her.

9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)

Love You ForeverI have a favourite children’s book that I read to my kids and they now read to my grandkids. It makes me cry sometimes, but I still love it.

Love You Forever  by Robert Munsch

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.

Mrs. Sinclair's SuitcaseI have not really received anything in an interesting way. I did win some books in Goodreads Giveaways and one that a publisher reached out and sent to me without my request. I guess that might be the only one. I haven’t actually read it yet, but hope to some day.

11. Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?

Whenever I am invited to a baby shower or someone I know has a baby, I give them a copy of Love You Forever  by Robert Munsch  (See #9)

13. Any “required reading” that you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?

I loved most of the books I had to read in highschool, as I have always been an avid reader. I will say some of the Shakespeare I read was not the most enjoyable due to the old English but that would be my only complaint.

14. Used or brand new?

Doesn’t matter to me. I buy a lot of books at used book sales, yard sales etc. I also love the feel and crackle of a new book.

15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Yes I have. I read Angels & Demons (Robert Langdon, #1) byDan Brown and The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon, #2)  . I enjoyed them both, not sure why I have not read others.

16. Have you ever seen a movie that you liked more than the book?

Yes, The Princess Bride byWilliam GoldmanThe Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure: The "Good Parts" VersionImage result for the princess bride movie

17. Have you ever read a book that made you hungry, cookbooks included?

There have been so many. I read a lot of cozies and so many of them have food involved. I could list over 20 if I started.

18. Who is a person who’s book advice you’ll always take?

I don’t really have a person I always take advice from. I have several bloggers that have similar tastes to me so I often trust their reviews and suggestions. One of my sisters also reads a lot and I will take recommendations from her.

19. Is there a book outside of your comfort zone that you ended up loving?

The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy, #1)I am not a big fantasy, fairytale or folkore book but I am so glad that I tried The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy #1) by Katherine Arden. I read the second one and am looking forward to reading the last one when it comes out.
