Bookshelf Meme @ 1:35 PM
So, I got tagged by Zoe's Book Reviews to do a meme. Zoe, thanks for tagging me! Here's the meme response:
1. Tag 3-5 people, so the fun keeps going!
2. Leave a comment at the original post at A Striped Armchair, so that Eva can collect everyone’s answers.
3. If you leave a comment and link back to Eva as the meme’s creator, she will enter you in a book giveaway contest! She has a whole shelf devoted to giveaway books that you’ll be able to choose from, or a bookmooch point if you prefer.
4. Remember that this is all about enjoying books as physical objects, so feel free to describe the exact book you’re talking about, down to that warping from being dropped in the bath water…
1. the book that’s been on your shelves the longest: I have had the Fudge books by Judy Blume on my bookshelf from second grade. They've always been good books to me.
2. A book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time, etc.): The Cat in the Hat reminds me of when I was young, and nobody had to worry about what everybody else thought of them.
3. a book you acquired in some interesting way (gift, serendipity in a used bookstore, prize, etc.): I got the His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman for Christmas in 2007, and I didn't realize that it was those books until I actually opened the book. haha.
4. the most recent addition to your shelves: I got 13 Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
5. a book that’s been with you to the most places: Um... I take a book with me wherever I go, so I can't pinpoint one. I'll say the Harry Potter series books overall are the books that I've taken everywhere.
6. a bonus book that you want to talk about but doesn’t fit into the other questions:I think that this is a hard book to choose too. I think that I'll choose My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I chose this book because it was one of the best books that I've ever read. It brings up an issue that shouldn't be ignored at any rate, and Picoult did a wonderful job of writing about it.
I am going to tag:
