Book Tag!

Well, the lovely ladies of The Secret DMS Files of Fairday Morrow have tagged me to play! This looks like so much fun & I'm psyched! Here are the rules!

1) You must post the rules.
2) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3) Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4) Let them know you’ve tagged them!

And here are the questions they asked:

1. When did you start blogging?
A-I started blogging just about two months ago now. I'm still fairly new at this :)

2. What is your favorite food?
A-My favorite food...well, lately it's been pepperoni pizza and of course cheesecake is a necessity.

3. What is your favorite book from childhood?
A-I'd have to say it's a toss up between Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maude Montgomery and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Both books helped me to fall in love with the written word and showed me there were others out there who didn't like to conform. :)

4. Best concert you have ever attended or what concert would you like to attend?
A-Hmm...this is kinda hard. I have to say that seeing Counting Crows with Maroon 5 & Sara Bareilles was amazing..but the acoustic set Coheed & Cambria played at an FYE store in Nyack was fantastic..plus I got to meet them after...I'm gonna say it was a tie :)

5. PC or Mac?
A-Oh I am definitely a PC :)

6. Where do you buy or get most of the books you read?
A-There is this wonderful used book store by my house, The Book Barn, & I do probably 85% of my book shopping there.

7. If you could be friends with any character from a book, who would you be friends with?
A-Oh, Jo March, hands down! You would NEVER be bored, and can you imagine the adventures you would go on?!?

8. Favorite holiday?
A-Christmas! I love giving gifts & the baking and the decorating..it's just a magical time of year for me.

9. A book you think everyone should read?
A-Oh this is hard..there are SO many! Ok, so Harry Potter, of course! That series made reading fun for kids & adults again, in my opinion and I think it really helped open the door for all the paranormal type books that are thriving right now.

10. If you could have one wish, what would it be?
A-One wish would be that I could get paid to read.. lol. There just aren't enough hours in the day and I have so so many books that I really want to read and I have this job that I really need to pay my bills..so yeah, that would be my wish right now :)

11. Favorite beverage?
A-Diet Peach Snapple Tea! I'm addicted to the stuff lately! LOVE it :)

2-What is your favorite book?
3-When a book is made into a movie, do you prefer to read the book before or after you've seen it?

  1. LOL! Mel- I am also addicted to Diet Peach Snapple Iced tea- it's like the nectar of the Gods : ) It has to be diet though- to add to your addiction, you may want to try Turkey Hill Diet Ginseng Iced Tea- I seriously cannot live without it, and wish I could have it delivered in barrels to my house, just like Poland Springs water. Thanks for sharing The Book Barn. I love these magical book shops, and I am always on the look out for that one secret book that the universe put there just for me : ) -I checked out their page! Thanks for playing along- this was fun! ~ Jess

  2. Yep, diet only here too :) I will definitely look for the Turkey Hill diet, my husband loves their regular tea :) The Book Barn is my FAVORITE store ever :) I've been shopping there since I was a teenager. I could (and have) spend hours wandering through the shelves to make sure I haven't missed ANYTHING I might want to read someday lol. :) This was so much fun & thank you for tagging me! <3


We love to hear from you!
