Tag, I'm IT

Wendi at Wendi's Book Corner tagged me with Random Facts: Book Edition! While I can't imagine why anyone would find any seven relevant facts -- let alone random ones -- about me interesting, I'm lacking a post for today so this seems like a good way to make it look like I've been busily blogging along. So here's your seven book-related facts (random, not relevant, that is):

  1. I don't have a library card. I can't do it. Nothing against the library, which was my best childhood friend, but now that I am an income-producing adult, I simply MUST own the books. They must reside on my shelves. I love them. They're mine.
  2. I am a 37 year old adult and I read every one of the Twilight series. 'Nuff said about that.
  3. I hate Nicolas Sparks' novels. Too sappy even for me.
  4. I just mentioned this on Book Blogs, but it bears repeating: the only novel that has ever made me cry is Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove.
  5. I actually read a ton of non-fiction that I don't review on this blog. All of it history.
  6. I read two bedtime stories to my toddler every single night that I'm at home. On the nights I'm not at home, I am required to recite I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by memory over the telephone.
  7. I cannot go into a book store without buying at least one book, even if I never get around to reading it.
So there you have it, all the dirty details. Now I get to ambush seven other unsuspecting blogs with this little exercise. Hmmmmm (*evil laugh*)....who shall I choose?

  1. Amy at Passages to the Past (because I know she has soooo little to do these days, ha ha).
  2. Amanda at The Luscious Literary Muse.
  3. Melanie at The Indextrious Reader (I just love reading her blog name).
  4. Carey at The Tome Traveller's Weblog.
  5. Petunia at Educating Petunia.
  6. Leah at The Octogon.
  7. Heather at The Reader's Word.

If you're brave enough, here are your instructions:
1. Link to the person who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs
4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog!


  1. You should review the non-fiction, too.

  2. I agree. We like to hear about non-fiction, too!

    I've had to train myself to use the library. It was a matter of space at home. :-) I still buy way more than I read though.


  3. I may get around to the non-fiction, especially since it's history stuff. I'd like to get some more male-oriented books up (not that women don't read non-fiction, but you know what I mean).

    Lezlie -- I think I will always buy more than I read. It gives me something to look forward to, for some reason.

  4. I have read every Twilight series book except the last one. And I can't wait to read it.

    I love Nicholas Sparks.

    I cannot leave a bookstore without buying at least one book either.

  5. You must post about the non-fiction you read. At least give us 4-5 lines. May be you can do a collective post every month. We would love to read about it.

  6. oops, the last comment was from me again. It is my friends login. I sometimes forget to change it from google/Blogger to OpenId. And it's stuck there. I am not able to log out form it so that even accidentally it does not show up. But alas...

  7. Thanks for tagging me, I enjoyed doing this one and reading other peoples answers. My results are posted on my blog.

  8. Michele - I love it! We have a set number of bedtime stories every night too. I've never read Lonesome Dove but I'm impressed about that one - I read a handful of books a year that make me cry.


  9. LOL - I've got a library card, but I don't think I've ever used it!

    I'd love to read some reviews of non-fiction books!! I've done a few on my site, and I think some are quite good.
