A book MeMe...

The book that’s been on your shelves the longest.

Hmm. now this has to definitely be one from childhood, and I am strictly going by the shelf comment because some of my older books are in boxes. I would say it is between my Anne of Green Gables series or my collection of books written by Louisa May Alcott. And I am very disturbed that I cannot find my mother's copy of Little Women from when she was a young girl. I had her copy and my hardcover copy and I can't find hers. Hopefully she has it.

A book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time).

Hmmm... I think most of my books remind me of specific events and I can't think of any that stick out right off the top of my head. Just looking at the books nearest me I can recall what they bring to mind for me. Cage of Star's reminds me of sitting in the ER waiting room last time I was sick, The Reading Group reminds me of curling up on my bed at my old apartment and reading, Twilight Series reminds me of a former boyfriend, and so on...

The book that’s been with you to the most places.

Ha.. I think this honor belongs to either Something Blue or Atonement. Made many travels, not finished reading either.

The most recent addition to your shelves.

Revolutionary Road! Excited to start on it eventually..

Your current read, your last read and the book you’ll read next.

I am currently working through Taking Control of Your Fertility.. slugging through it, but really i need to step away from the computer screen. The last one I read was Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo and the one that I will read next depends on if I re-new my lib books or not. So it will either be We Were The Mulvaney's or something off my shelf.. or a new lib book..
