Count your age along your bookshelf. What book is it?
Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Used to be my favorite of the Bard’s plays, but has recently been overturned by Hamlet.
Pick a book set in your country.
There are many to chose from, since I live in Canada and have several of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books, but I’ll go with The Blue Castle. I love it so much.
Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to.
The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan, because it’s a goal of mine to someday visit each of the five D-Day beaches.
Pick a book that is your favorite color.
There’s not many purple books on my shelf, but I’ll go with my copy of Sense & Sensibility (by Jane Austen, of course). The book’s cover isn’t purple, but the spine is and that counts.
Which book do you have fondest memories of?
My copy of Cloaked (by Rachel Kovaciny) brings back a lot of good memories – reading drafts and giving my thoughts and, of course, my time with her and my time in America in general.
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
Usually, I don’t keep books on my shelf that gave me a difficult time of reading, but I admit that Code Name Verity (by Elizabeth Wein) was a hard, confusing slog the first time I read it. It’s improved on me, though, so I still have my copy.
Which book on your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?
The Second World War by Antony Beevor is huge and looks amazing and I’m sure I’ll feel very proud, accomplished, and knowledgeable about WWII when I get around to reading it.
This was such fun! I hereby tag anyone who’s read any of the books mentioned in this tag. 🙂
