My lovely Facebook friends and fellow bloggers, Carol Cork, Amy Ella, and Shell Cunliffe challenged me to a game of Book Tag. I’m very tardy in responding, but here goes:
You must be honest.
You must answer all the questions.
You must tag at least 4 people.
- What book has been on your shelf the longest?
Actually it’s a series of about 12 book from the old Harlequin Super Romance line from (gasp) 1982.
- What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?
Current: Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen
Last: A Warriner to Protect Her by Virginia Heath
Next: Blame it on the Duke by Lenora Bell
- What book did everyone like, but you hated?
No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah Maclean
- What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?
- What book are you saving for retirement?
Not saving any for retirement – reading as fast as I can.
- Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end?
Never, never, never read the last page first.
- Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?
I enjoy reading acknowledgements. Some of them are touching, some amusing.
- Which book character would you switch places with?
I might like to be Beth Mackenzie, and be the focus of all that HOT attention from Ian. Whew!
- Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)
Little Women was a gift from my aunt, and it was my first real “non-child” book. I remember my dismay when I received it, but then it set me on a path to loving romance.
- Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.
Signed books from authors are interesting and lovely.
- Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?
I gave my favorite author a copy of a book she hadn’t read by another favorite of mine.
- Which book has been with you most places?
Jane Eyre. No doubt about it.
- Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?
I enjoyed almost all the required reading books except for The Good Earth by Pearl Buck. I have never wanted to revisit it.
- Used or brand new? New, used, borrowed, electronic, paper – I love them all.
- Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?
- Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book?
I haven’t yet.
- Have you ever read a book that’s made you hungry, cookbooks included?
Not a particular book, but dinner scenes in Italian restaurants will do it for me.
- Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?
- Is there a book out of your comfort zone (e.g., outside your usual reading genre) that you ended up loving?
I don’t read a lot of contemporary romance, but I really love Sarah Morgan’s New York series.
Now I’m tagging:
