This is one of those features that is tagged based so I have no idea who started it, but all credit for the idea goes to them! Reem at I Read and Tell tagged everyone in her post and since it looked like fun I figured I’d join in. It’s just another quick way to let you guys get to know me and my shelves.
What is your most expensive book? What is your least expensive?
My most expensive is The Hemingses of Montecello by Annette Gordon-Reed at $35…nonfiction hardbacks are insanely expensive. My least expensive could be anything really…I shop at Goodwill a lot and I also get a lot of books for free. However I’ll go with my most recently cheap purchase, Doctor Who: Remembrance of the Daleks for .77 cent.
Which author do you have a love-hate relationship with?
Ooo this is hard. Mainly because I’m so rarely in the fence on my opinion of an author…I usually either hate-hate their work or love-love them, rarely both. I’d have to go with Charlaine Harris or Laurell K. Hamilton. They both have really long series that hit some really stagnant and pointless areas that make me wish they would have stopped before then, but I still enjoy the books regardless.
What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?
That’s also hard…I have a lot of unread books due to laziness. I think my oldest books are Guillver’s Travels and Uncle Tom’s Cabin, both added to my Goodreads shelves in 2008. In fact the only two added in 2008 that I haven’t read.
What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
I don’t really try to sound like an intellectual reader to be honest. In most cases people sterotype me as intellectual simply because I read, so I don’t have to try very hard. ;P I do like
reciting talking about Shakespeare and I can talk your ear off about The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
- Mental Attributes
- Intelligent – They must have a brain and they must use it. This requires typical intelligence AND common sense.
- Sarcasm – They should at least be able to successfully understand and appreciate sarcasm, it’s even better if they are fluent in it.
- Humor – A sense of humor is vital and it doesn’t matter what kind as long as it’s not super cheesy or super childish. I love intelligent humor and I’m also fond of dark humor, so bonus points for those.
- Charm – If you can’t charm your way out of a sticky situation or into someone’s good graces you’re of no use to me!
- Physical Attributes
- Long Hair – I need this…I love it in real life (see boyfriend and almost all movie/tv character crushes) and I adore it books. A person automatically gets attractive points for having long hair.
- Taller than Me (Males Only) – This is weird because honestly how do I know they are taller than me? Well because I’m 5’2″ and nearly everyone is. More specifically I like tall guys in the 5’9″ to 6’3″ range. Females I’m not picky on for some reason…go figure.
What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
So there you have it! My 7 deadly sins of reading for all to see! Since blogging and life are both time consuming I’m going to tag everyone and hopefully one of you lovely readers will decide to partake! If you do decide to do it let me know so I can stop by!
