I couldn't find a picture for this but the first book that was put on my shelf was The Holy Bible (New International Version). I was given it in the third grade by my Lutheran church which happens to be when got my first bookshelf.
Tell me about a book that reminds you of something specific in your life (person, place, time, etc...)
When I first picked up The Two Princesses of Bamarre, I immediately recognized their personalities. One of the princesses (blond one) reminded me of my older sister and I couldn't help see myself in Addy (brunette one). This book is also one of my favorites. :)
Tell me about a book you acquired in some interesting way (gift, serendipity in a used book store, prize, etc.):
When our church got the new hymnals (these dark red ones), they were giving away the old ones. So I brought one home!
Tell me about the most recent addition to your shelves:
I have a rule: I only add books to my shelf when I am done reading them. So the most current one added was: Top 8 by Katie Finn.
It's been a slow reading week but I hope to finish 13 Little Blue Envelopes before I put up my In My Mailbox post tomorrow.
Tell me about a book that has been with you the most places:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid even went with me to my Grandma's house several times. I read this to my younger brother and he is also in love with it now. And he hates reading! So that's a big step up.
Tell me about a book that doesn't fit any of the above questions:
I also read this one to my brother and we got a kick out of it. There are a limited number of good younger boy books that have a rough edge while still being funny (we've learned from experience) and this is one of them! I love this book but most of Author Sid Fleischman's other works are creepy and ... creepy.
