Book Meme

I grabbed this from Susanne at Living To Tell The Story.

What are you reading right now?  Nothing.  Pathetic, eh?  I just read three books on vacation, though.  My favorite of the three was definitely Standing In The Rainbow, which I reviewed briefly here.

Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that?  I have nothing lined up right now.  I’m open to suggestions!

What magazines do you have in your bathroom right now?  EW.  That’s disgusting.  WHY would I want to touch a magazine that’s sitting in a bathroom?   My germaphobic nature just won’t allow reading material in the bathroom.  If you ever DO find a magazine in my bathroom it will be something along the lines of Fine Homebuilding or something of that ilk, compliments of Husband.
 

What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read? Anything by Shakespeare.  UGH.

What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone?  Hmmm.  I don’t know that I have one.  Gone With The Wind is an old favorite.  I also love The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory, but it’s a bit on the raunchy side in parts, so I don’t always recommend it.  I’ve read lots of her books and ones like them.  I love reading historical fiction.  It’s a great way to learn about history without the academics.  Sneaky, aren’t I!?

Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they? 
Um.  Hardly.  I have just recently started frequenting the library because of their handy dandy electronic ordering system.  Until that, I always bought my books.

Is
there a book you absolutely love, but for some reason, people never
think it sounds interesting, or maybe they read it and don’t like it at
all?
Does the Bible count?  LOL!  That’s all I can think of.  Boy, this is not a very entertaining meme, is it???

Do you read books while you do other things? Oh, yeah, I’m always multi-tasking.  I love to read by the pool, on the beach, by the lake in Maine, outside on my front porch while the kids are playing, but my favorite spot to read is in my bed at night with no distractions.

When you were little, did other children tease you about your reading habits? Not really, but they should have!  I read constantly.  I read in class at school, in the lunchroom, on the bus, you name it, I was reading.  I used to get in trouble for reading in class.

What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?  Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich.  I’m dying for Lean Mean Thirteen to get to the library.  I’m on the waiting list.  (Once again, a disclaimer.  Evanovich can get a little racy, so I hesitate to suggest her sometimes.  I prefer to stick with authors like Fannie Flagg but I got hooked on the Stephanie Plum series years ago so I try to overlook the smutty parts.)

If you’re reading, consider yourself tagged.  And let me know if you play along!
