Some stuff to catch up on...

First, the meme from Emily Ruth (sorry, no pictures to go with this):

The book that's been on my shelf the longest:
Actually, it's a series of books. I've had a set of 4 Ramona books (by Beverly Cleary) for as long as I can remember. Those books are awesome, and sometimes I still read them now. *sheepish grin*

A book that reminds me of something specific in my life:
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. It was an adorable book, and I remember reading it curled up on my bed right before lunch on Christmas Day.

A book that I acquired in some interesting way:
I am going to say Shiloh here, because I get most of my books in boring ways. I don't remember how I got Shiloh, and that's the most interesting story I have. (Sorry. I know. I'm pathetic.)

The most recent addition to my shelves:
Mackenzie Blue. You can see my review here, and let me just say that I did not like it.

A book that has been with you the most places:
There are two. One is a Mary Poppins one (I'm not sure which one) and the other is The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. I took both of those on an Europe tour in 2007, during which I visited 8 countries (I think.)

And an extra one:
When I went to India a couple years ago, I got a ton of mystery books by Enid Blyton. They aren't the best books ever, but they are quite interesting, and if you ever have the chance to go to England or somewhere you can get books by this British author, I would definitely recommend her.

For the rules, you can go to Emily Ruth's post here. I'm tagging everyone who wants to do this, because it's fun and everyone should have an opportunity to participate.

I've also received the Sisterhood Award from Jen, who is another fabulous blogger. The rules are here on Jen's post, and this time, I'm passing the award along to...Maya, from allegro!

Someone tagged me for this meme a while ago. I should get around to it; I enjoyed reading yours.

You've been to a lot of places!

Passing a sisterhood award along to Maya? Really? ;)

Betty and Boo's Mommy said...

Priya, there's no shame at all - none - in still reading Beverly Cleary. I picked some of her books up at a sale for my kids (they're not quite into her yet, but I'm guessing soon) and Ramona and Beezus are calling my name from the shelves.

Maya Ganesan said...

Oh, yes, Q. Oh, yes.

Priya said...

Cuileann- I'm looking forward to your post soon.

Maya- you're welcome. :)

Q- Really. I actually didn't notice until after I posted it, but it is funny.

Betty and Boo's Mommy- I'm glad to see there's another Ramona fan around!

Ramona forever!
