What Book Is On Your Nightstand Now?
Don't Give Up, Don't Give In : Lessons From An Extraordinary Life By Louis Zamperini & David Resin. This is kind of a autobiography, but not.. :P I want to read Louis Zamperini's real autobiography, Devil At My Heels eventually. I read Unbroken By Laura Hillenbrand and am now attached to Louis Zamperini. *Sigh* I know I am silly, but for some reason he just intrigues me.
*This is also one of the books in my Reading List For 2016 post. Would you believe it if I say I believe this is the first book I am reading on that list? :P
What Was the Last Truly Great Book You Read?
Hmm...this one is hard. Probably would be Stepping Heavenward By Elizabeth Prentiss. This is an all-time favorite now and I have actually read it a few times.
If You Could Meet Any Writer - Dead or Alive - Who Would It Be? And What Would You Want To Know?
Well... I would have to say Apostle Paul...does that count??? I love his epistles, Romans especially, but I don't know if he would count as a writer. I have long wished I could just sit and visit with him, not necessarily on any specific subject. Or as second choice I would choose Laura Ingalls Wilder.. :)
What Books Might We Be Surprised to Find On Your Shelves?
Well... I would probably have to say westerns??? I enjoy Louis L'Amour westerns when I am in the mood, but typically don't like many westerns. I grew up with too many and I find them way to predictable. Mustang Man would be my favorite Louis L'Amour western ( I like his other books like, Last of the Breed better.)
How Do You Organize Your Personal Library?
I actually live apart from most of my books right now *frown*, but I think I remember how I have them organized. I have my biographies/autobiographies on one shelf, organized by subject and era. My next shelf is books for young readers, organized by author and/or series. My last shelf is for my romance novels which I have organized by author/series. I think that is how I have them anyways...I used to reorganize them quite a bit. :P
What Book Have You Always Meant to Read But Haven't Got Around Yet?
Hmm... probably Uncle Tom's Cabin By Harriet Beecher Stowe. I just keep reading other books instead. Hopefully one of these days I can get to it...
Anything You Feel Embarrassed Never to Have Read?
I read quite a variety and I can't think of anything that I would be embarrassed to have not read... :P
Disappointing, Overrated, Just Not Good: What Book Did You Feel You Are Supposed to Like But Didn't?
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer By Mark Twain. It never caught my interest and it just bored me. I was disappointed because I had always enjoyed the children's version of the book.
Do You Remember the Last Book You Put Down Without Finishing?
Hmmm...I think it was The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle... not because I didn't like it. I think I stopped reading it to read Little Women and just never picked it up again. I want to finish it, but it isn't close at hand right now.
What Kind Of Stories Are You Drawn To? Any You Stay Clear Of?
I really am mostly drawn to autobiographies. I love reading peoples personal accounts, journals, and/or what their friends/family have to say. I would probably say true accounts of WWII draw me the most. For fiction, I like historical romance, adventure stories (like Johnny Tremain, Around the World In 80 Days, etc.) and Christian suspense novels.
Books I stay clear of??? Any books I find that go against God's Word. If I find they are misleading on what God's Word is, that really irritates me and I won't read that author again.
If You Could Require The President to Read One Book, What Would It Be?
I have to say the same as Shantelle, the Bible. :)
What Do You Plan to Read Next?
Queen of The Waves By Janice Thompson... I have never read this author, I seen this at the library and got it. I am hoping it is a good read.
