A Book Reader’s Tag

I saw this tag at Spines and Covers blog and since I have not fished the book I plan on reviewing next, hopefully this weekend, I decided a tag would keep you interested and maybe you can join in on the fun…. come on, join in.  I’d love to hear what you think.

True to myself, I’ve decided to make up additional questions and take out some as I didn’t feel I had anything of interest to say in response.  I hope you enjoy this tag since I think this is a great way to get to know each other and keep me posting without having to feel the pressure of finishing a book.  Books are meant to be enjoyed and I don’t want to rush through them.

How long does it take you to read a book?

Hmm this really depends.  Some books I can fly through them and others it takes me a while.  I’m not a faster reader to begin with so sometimes it can be frustrating if I start comparing myself to others.

Books you haven’t finished.

There are a few.  I’m not going to include the ones I have no intention on ever finishing.  Life is too short to read books I don’t enjoy.  Notice I didn’t say that think they are bad books.  I just don’t think they were meant for me.  Here are two of the books I have started, intend on finishing but haven’t gotten around to it.

 

Hyped/Poplar books you don’t like.

Hmm to name a few…. These I know for a fact I don’t like.

 

I hated Animal Farm.  So much so that I think I’d like to read 1984 but I’m afraid that I’m going to hate it also.

Classics you did not enjoy.

There are the ones that I was forced to read in school.  Honestly, I don’t even remember the stories.  I don’t think I was in the right frame of mind to read them or perhaps it was the wrong time in my life.  High school is probably not the best time to attempt these classics….. Just saying!!!!!  I think if I were to read some of these now I’d probably enjoy them.

Most favorite children’s books?

The Little Prince will always have a special place in my heart.  I think this was the first book my father ever read to me and it will always be special.

In college I needed to take a literature class.  I was a senior, taking 18 credits and working part time.  I wanted to make sure I wasn’t going shoot myself in the foot for having waited that long to take this requirement.  I decided on a class in Children’s Literature.  I wound up loving that class and read one of my most favorite books of all time.

Hope you enjoyed this little tag.

Have a great rest of the week and look for the new book review coming soon…. hopefully this weekend.

I live in Camelot. I didn't do it on purpose but .... here I am. This is the story of another 50+ year old woman who just realized that the life she worked so hard to build is no longer what she wants..... why am I speaking about myself in the third person? Odd!!! Come join me as I try to figure out my next move. Ana
