Today I have been pondering, reflecting, etc., in response to a TAG from My Home of Books, all about Seven Deadly Sins.
The prompt: answer the seven questions below…
Seven Deadly Sins
What is your most expensive book?
I purchased Barbra Streisand’s My Passion for Design a couple of years ago…it sells for almost $40.00, but it is thick and filled with glorious photos, as well as text.
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Off the top of my head, I would say that Danielle Steel’s books are no longer on my to-read stacks. They are too predictable and formulaic for my tastes these days. Hate is too strong a word, however.
What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?
First of all, I would never be ashamed to reread or devour a book over and over…LOL. But lately, I have not done so. In my younger years, that book was Gone with the Wind. A few years ago, I reread a couple of Beth Gutcheon’s books: Domestic Pleasures and Still Missing.
Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Okay…probably a Stephen King book that has been on my stacks for several years…I’m not kidding here! I bought it before starting Curl up and Read, the blog designed to help me whittle down the stacks. Lisey’s Story is that book. Hefty. But I’ve read much heftier books lately…so I’m not sure why. But I’ll get to it…I promise!
What book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
Anything by Dosteovsky or Tolstoy…LOL.
What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
men: Chiseled jaw; strong body; and sensitivity, too.
women: Strength; ability to stand on her own two feet; her looks don’t matter much.
What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
Anything having to do with interior design, with lots of photos.
And that’s it, folks! My soul is bared….
If you ponder these questions, what would your answers be? I’d love to read your thoughts!
