I’m going to break the rules and not tag anyone because I think it’s more fun to see who does it without being tagged. So please feel free to play along! It’s fun to see people’s answers.
You must be honest.
You must answer all the questions.
You must tag at least 4 people.
Here I go!
1.What book has been on your shelf the longest?
Captian’s Blood by William Shatner with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. I’ve had it since around 2005 when I was around 13 years old.
2.What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?
Current read is The Pursuit of Pleasure by Elizabeth Essex, My last read was Encounter with a Rogue by Deb Marlowe, My next read will be The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin (a new to me author thanks to a friend)
3.What book did everyone like, but you hated?
Hmm, I don’t think I have read a book that everyone loved and I hated. Usually, I like something about every book. The only ones that I have not liked I did not finish.
4.What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?
Pride and Prejudice. I have it but have never gotten around to reading it.
5.What book are you saving for retirement?
I haven’t planned that far in advance.
6.Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end?
I have to wait until the end! I could never ruin the ending for myself by looking.
7.Acknowledgment: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?
I like them as long as they don’t drag on for pages. I know the excitement of having your name mentioned in a book!
8.Which book character would you switch places with?
I can’t pick just one! There are many in the historicals that I read that love and think it would be fun for awhile to be them.
9.Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)
A lot of the westerns I have read remind me of being a little girl wondering in the fields among the cows and animals.
10.Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.
I won an audio book copy of Her Imperfect Groom by Rose Gordon by posting a picture of my fur babies. It was a surprise giveaway.
11.Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?
Yes. I love to give books as gifts to other book lovers. I want to share the joy that books can bring.
12.Which book has been with you most places?
All of them. I have the Kindle app on my phone so pretty much all of my books are with me everywhere.
13.Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?
I was homeschooled so I had a bit more choice with what I had to read. Anything I read I loved.
14.Used or brand new?
Both. I rarely actually have print books but I will take them either way.
15.Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?
16.Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book?
Broken Trail. I loved the movie more than the book. The book was still good.
17.Have you ever read a book that’s made you hungry, cookbooks included?
Yes! I’ve read a few historical romances that have mentioned food that sounds yummy. One even had recipes at the end.
18.Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?
I can’t pick just one. All the authors I follow on Facebook are amazing.
19.Is there a book out of your comfort zone (e.g., outside your usual reading genre) that you ended up loving?
Yes. Stolen by my Knave by Dawn Brower is slightly outside my usual genre because of time travel and I loved it. I usually don’t like any with time travel except for Outlander.
