Book Tag!

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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

  1. What book did everyone like, but you hated?

 No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah Maclean

  1. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?


  1. What book are you saving for retirement?

Not saving any for retirement – reading as fast as I can.

  1. Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end?

Never, never, never read the last page first.

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

I enjoy reading acknowledgements. Some of them are touching, some amusing.

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

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

Signed books from authors are interesting and lovely.

  1. 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.

  1. Which book has been with you most places?

 Jane Eyre.  No doubt about it.

  1. 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.

  1. Used or brand new?                                                                                                           New, used, borrowed, electronic, paper – I love them all.
  1. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Not one.

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

I haven’t yet.

  1. 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.

  1.  Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?

Carol Cork.

  1.  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:
