En route to Alaska / The Fall Book Tag

fall-book-tag.png

I have been BUSY recently. Too busy. I’ve managed to read one book in like, two weeks. But tomorrow I’m leaving to go on a roadtrip from Seattle to Anchorage, Alaska, and I’m very excited and hope to get some reading done while I travel.  A friend randomly called me up and asked me to help her move to Anchorage, so…how could I say no to that? I’ll be away from the internet for a week traversing the Canadian wilderness (literally camping), but hopefully when I come back I’ll feel more refreshed. I’ve been a little burnt out from posting and general online activity lately (I blame all the computer time at work).

I leave on a plane at 7:05 Saturday morning (RIP me), so I’m probably in the air as you read this 😀

ALSO it finally feels fallish outside so this tag feels appropriate. Thank you to the lovely Mischenko for tagging me for this one!! Please go check out her blog, she talks about books and music and animals and food (just to name a few things)!

This tag was created by Shanah at Bionic Bookworm, so please give her blog a visit as well! I recommend her Top 5 Tuesdays 🙂

I was tagged by Hadeer for this tag, and everyone else did it like, two weeks ago and I’m lagging, but better late than never, right? Thanks Hadeer! If you don’t follow her, I recommend checking out her blog, she writes really insightful and thorough reviews, and also posts original writing!!

RULES:
You must be honest
You must answer all the questions
You must tag at least 4 people

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

When I was born my parents had this book made called “Baby’s First Book” or something along those lines, and it’s basically about bringing home a baby from the hospital, and they had it personalized with my name and the names of my relatives and whatnot. So it was like “On February 11, a bouncing baby named Stephanie came into the world! Donna and Steven were delighted. Grandma Kay thought she was the most adorable baby ever.” It’s funny to read, especially since I don’t even call my grandmother “Grandma Kay.” It’s still on my shelf, so I think it’s a safe bet.

The Liebster Award

I’m procrastinating because it’s Friday and it’s been a long week, and Naty tagged me for this award and her questions were so pleasantly bookish I had to do them right away. Thank you, Naty!!

What book you wish you could un-read to experience it for the first time again?

Harry Potter. I mean, realistically I wouldn’t erase my mind of it because all my teen years were such an experience with it and my life literally revolved around Harry Potter and it taught me so much as a tiny youth, but I’d love to experience them again.

What’s your Hogwarts house?

Hufflepuff!

Obviously Carswell Thorne immediately came to mind. He cracked me up so much I would literally send screenshots of some of his dialogue to my best friend who’s never even read these books to make her laugh with me. What a guy.
