By the Book Tag

I was tagged by Felicity @ Poems, Prayers, and Promises for the "By the Book Tag". :D
This probably won't be very interesting, but here it goes anyway:

What Book is on Your Nightstand Now?
Nothing cool, just Child Training Tips by Reb Bradley. Though I did graduate this year, my mom still has a list of books she wants me to read for "school", and this is one. I'm not a very fast reader, even when I want to read a book, so it's taking me a while. But, I'll get it done sometime and go on to another book on her list. :)

What was the Last Truly Great Book That You Read?
The Daybreakers by Louis L'Amour! =D It was the second time reading it, but it was by far the best book I've read lately. And it was the last book I've finished :D I don't really read Louis L'Amour's, and my family tries to get me to read other books by him all the time, but nothing can beat Tyrel's story.  So there. ;D I've tried to read others, but I just can't. I don't really know why, but if it's not about Tyrel Sackett, it just seems weird. Even Tyrel is in the book, I can't do it. Strange, I know ;P

If You Could Meet Any Writer - Dead or Alive - Who Would It Be? And What Would You Want To Know?
umm... am I strange? I really think I wouldn't care if I could meet a writer or not.
What Books Might We Be Surprised to Find On Your Shelves?
I don't know.... *runs to look in box of books* Um, you would be surprised to find that I don't really have very many! haha! :D  (but I want more!) You might be surprised to find American Sisters: A Titanic Journey Across the Sea by Laurie Lawlor. 

 Or even some of the Sister's in Time series (I'm surprised to find those because I never read them! ;P )
 How Do You Organize Your Personal Library?
Well, like my sister, my books have been in a box for over nine months! But when I did have them on a shelf I had authors and series together, going by ages. I also tried to do the same size together. That can be hard though. :)
 What Book Have You Always Meant to Read But Haven't Got Around Yet?
 Nothing. That I know of... I like to read, but I'm very picky about what I read. I could say just books that my sisters tell me to read, but I've never really 'meant' to read those! ;) I think I'm finally getting out of the 'I don't read' stage I must've been in because I do read a lot more than I used to... and nobody has to force me. ;P
Oh, I guess I could say Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
 And I'd like to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. Oh! And Emma! 
And some of Mark Twain's books!... guess there are some books I would like to read but nevr got around to after all. ;P

Anything You Feel Embarrassed Never to Have Read? 
A lot of books. :) But, I'm workin' on it ;P
Disappointing, Overrated, Just Not Good: What Book Did You Feel You Are Supposed to Like But Didn't?
Touching the Sky by Tracie Petersen. I enjoyed it at first, but the closer I got to the end the more I didn't like it. It just begged me that her sister married the 'bad guy'. When she feels like her life will never get better, the main character tells her that her husband might be hung for murder to "give her hope". Like they can't wait. I don't know, it just bugged me. But I like the 'good guy' ;)
And The Meeting Place by Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn. My sister and cousin read this book and it's series together, so I was told to read it. Wasn't for me. I never actually finished it. :)
Do You Remember the Last Book You Put Down Without Finishing?
I don't remember for sure. The last book I put down without finishing?? ... Maybe it was The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain. Not because I didn't like it. It was a few years ago when I tried to read it and I just couldn't into books back then. When it got due back to the library, I just returned it without finishing it. Maybe someday I'll try again. ;)
What Kind Of Stories Are You Drawn To? Any You Stay Clear Of?
I'm drawn to Historical Romance mostly. I've liked stories with Knights, Cowboys, and Soldiers, but I don't really like any books that are modern. I did read one series that was modern, and I enjoyed it at the time, but when I was done I was like, "Lame," and haven't read any since. :)  And like Felicity and Marita, I stay away from anything that goes against God's Word.
If You Could Require The President to Read One Book, What Would It Be?
 A no brainer-- The Bible.
What Do You Plan to Read Next?
Books. Doing this post, I realized I haven't read many... so now I want to read more! I actually have The Captive Maiden by Melanie Dickerson on hold at the library... I don't know when it'll make its way to me. ;)
And now for the tagging. I think that all my cousins, aunts, and sisters who would do this have already been tagged. So, I'll just say: whoever wants to do this can! If you do it, I would like it if you left a link to your post in the comments. :D


  1. Enjoyed! I just can't see you ever reading "Jane Eyre" if you couldn't get into "The Meeting Place" but! Maybe you'll surprise me! ;) You actually have been reading more lately! Even more than me! *shocked face* You should tag your Mother!

    1. I had no interest when I tried to read "The Meeting Place", but now I've given up on trying to read books I'm not interested in. ;) So, IF I ever read "Jane Eyre", it'd be because I want to. :P
      I just basically tagged anyone who wants to do it... so if she wants to... ;P

  2. I enjoyed this! And yes, you have been reading much more lately!! and I really enjoyed " The Meeting Place " :D MMM as for tagging me...:P

  3. I go through seasons of reading not at all and reading a lot... Right now I'm reading more books at one time than I've ever read at once before!

  4. I go through seasons of reading not at all and reading a lot... Right now I'm reading more books at one time than I've ever read at once before!
