Bookshelf Meme

Tell me about the book that has been on your shelf the longest...

I can't remember the exact book, but this one comes the closest. The Pinhoe Egg is very dear to me because it was the first book I received from HarperCollins and the first I reviewed for a company. I loved the story and thought it would make a great movie!

Tell me about a book that reminds you of something specific in your life (i.e. a person, a place, a time, etc.)...

I just found this book on my shelf and it reminds me of something specific in my life because I just recently got cast as Mrs. Arable in Charlotte's Web. It is for a 5 week summer camp. I love this story and Templeton the rat will always be one of my favorite characters. :)

Tell me about a book you acquired in some interesting way (gift, serendipity in a used book store, prize, etc.)...

A couple of years ago, while we were visiting my grandparents in CA, my grandfather gave me this book. He had a collection of Tom Clancy books. This is special to me now because he has passed away. I have not finished the book yet, I guess I don't want to quite yet. :)

Tell me about the most recent addition to your shelves...

Graceling. My newest addition. The cover is absolutely amazing and the sword with the eye just begs you to the read the book. :) haha

Tell me about a book that has been with you to the most places...

I'm kind cheating and putting a series of books as my answer but it fits the description the best. When I travel I normally bring about 5 books with me every time, they are pretty much always different. But when I was younger, the Magic Tree House Books were the books that I traveled with and that I read multiple times. Jack and Annie are amazing kids! :)

Tell me about a bonus book that doesn't fit any of the above questions...

Book of a Thousand Days. This book is my bonus book because it more than does not fit in any of the questions it does not fit in any category or any groups, etc. It IS the group. Ok, that maybe is going a little far, but this book rocks so much and it is by far one of my ultimate favorite books. *sighs* Just the thought of reading it again makes me happy!

The Rules:

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...

5. Make the meme more fun with visuals! Covers of the specific edition you’re talking about, photos of your bookshelves, etc.

Picture of the Week (12)

The other day I was looking outside my window and I noticed a lizard. It was really pretty and so I climbed out onto my roof for a better look and got this shot. :)

Picture of the Week (10)

This past Saturday, I decided to go and compete at a Debate Competition a couple hours away with some people from my school. I competed in oral interpretation, which is basically presenting a passage of prose or poetry. You are judged on your poise, voice, way you present, etc. I did pretty well considering my lack or preparation and am excited for the fall (when it all starts up again). It was so fun! The picture above was my passage and it was a section from Anne of Green Gables.
