Book Meme

Miss Scarlet posted a meme about books, and for fun, I'm going to do it.

The rules are:
  1. Link to the person who tagged you.
  2. Post the rules on the blog.
  3. Write six random bookish things about yourself.
  4. Tag sixish people at the end of your post.
  5. Let each person know he or she has been tagged.
  6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

So here goes . . .
  1. I have to finish books, even if I hate them. I can't start a new book until I've finished the current book.
  2. I have four bookcases filled with books in the new guestroom -- two short and two tall.
  3. As a kid, my favorite book was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. (If you haven't read it, you should.)
  4. When I was cleaning out my old apartment, I found a ton of the bookmarks that you get for free from the bookstores.
  5. I like to read the book before seeing the movie, but I am almost never one of those people who says that the book is so much better.
  6. In the second grade, I did a book report -- complete with diorama -- on The Thorn Birds. I read the book because my mom wouldn't let me stay up to watch the miniseries on tv. And let's just say that it was completely inappropriate material for an 8 year-old.

Tags: Eh, whatever. Do it if you want to do it.

No. You. Did. Not. A diorama? That's hilarious.

For the list: I, too, read TTB when I was too had this gorgeous orangey gold cover that (to me) evoked the Ingalls family and thus I read it despite having no idea what was going on.

OMG that's so awesome about your school project.

TINGB: Add one more to the list.

Miss Scarlet: I was always reading inappropriate things -- but it was rare for me to do book reports on them. My second grade teacher, Mrs. Orsino, was mortified.
