I found this here, and she got it from here. I could be vacuuming and/or writing cards, but this looks like too much fun to put off!
1. The last book I gave up on
Greenglass House by Kate Milford.
2. The last book I reread
Tuesday the Rabbi Saw Red by Harry Kemelman.
3. The last book I bought
Lovely Beasts: The Surprising Truth by Kate Gardner. For the grandchildren this Christmas.
The last book I bought for myself
From a Distance by Raffaela Barker.
4. The last book I said I read but I actually didn't
I've never said this. Ever.
5. The last book I wrote in the margins of
Not since a college textbook! I don't write in books.
6. The last book I had signed
Gosh, probably a Tomie dePaola book when the kids were little.
7. The last book I lost
I assume by "lost" it means, loaned to someone and never got it back.
Can't recall the last one, but there have been a few over the years.
8. The last book I had to replace
Hollyhocks, Lambs, and Other Passions: A Memoir of Thornhill Farm by Dee Hardie. I couldn't bear to ask for it back. I love the person I loaned it to too much to ever do that. Let her enjoy it. I've got a new one.
9. The last book I argued over
I don't think I have ever argued over a book. But a book I was given by a friend because she loved it, and I just couldn't read more than a few pages:
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. That friend reads my blog so, yes, I will try it again, I promise!
10. The last book I couldn't find
I have a few of them because I moved shelves of books to other places when we got Tom's mother's dolls. I plan to do a post on them sometime. Seven shelves of books were distributed around the house, and I don't know where they are. When I look for one, I go right to the shelf it was on! The last one I was looking for is The Jewel Garden by Monty and Sarah Don. One of my first jobs in the New Year will be to organize my books, and put them together in some kind of order so I can find them again! I don't want to do one of those organizational online things. I tried it once and I thought I'd rather spend the time reading than typing out all my books and where they were in the house.
If you want a few minutes off from the Christmas bustle, you might give this a try. I enjoyed doing it a lot!
