I was tagged for this by TruBlue93 and I actually don't have book shelves, but no biggie, right? So here goes:
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...
The book that has been on your shelf the longest:
Buttermilk by Stephen Cosgrove
I got this from my Grandma, I think, before we moved. It's really old because we moved when I was two and a half. And it has library stamps on the inside of the cover. It's a really cute book, too. And the rabbit is just beautiful.
A book that remind you of something specific in your life:
A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin
I took this one with me on the trip to go to my grandmother's funeral.
A book you acquired in an interesting way:
Eragon by Christopher Paolini (Movie tie-in cover)
I got this one when I was in Regina with my art class and the English class of the grade above us and we saw Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories at the Globe Theatre. I'd broughten Monica Hughes' Where Have You Been, Billy Boy? but I finished it on the bus ride up and was BORED and needed something to read and I bought this for like eight bucks in Walmart.
The most recent addition to your shelves:
Across the Pond by Storyheart
This is the first time an author's contacted me about a book. It rocks!!!!
A book that's been with you to the most places:
Cloning Miranda by Carol Matas
The Second Clone by Carol Matas
I'm doing these as one because I never read one without reading the other. They've come with me from Ontario and back a couple times.
A bonus book(s) that you want to talk about but doesn't fit into the other questions
A Little Princess by Frances Hodges Burnett
My fourth-grade teacher gave our entire class books as Christmas presents. This is the one he gave to me. It's now one of my all-time favourite books. And I love the cover, so I searched for like ten minutes to find it for you guys. I actually own two copies of this because my mom bought me one. I didn't mind.
Now on the the tagging. Have fun with this!
