Life in Books Tag

1. Find a book for each of your initials

B: Brisingr by Christopher Paolini (Inheritance Cycle #3)

S: Salute the Dark by Adrian Tchaikovsky (Shadows of the Apt #4)

2. Count your age along your bookshelf – what book is it?

You’ll notice the question states Bookshelf, singular. For me, that is simply ridiculous. With 10 and counting, it all depends on I where I feel like starting. But to play along with this naive little question….

43: The Harmony of the Four Gospels by Joseph B Harriman (a unique take on harmonizing the Four Gospels into a One Year Ministry instead of the traditional 3 year ministry)

3. A book set in your city/country

USA: Into the Looking Glass by John Ringo. Military SF at its finest!

4. A book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to

Albion: The Paradise War by Stephen Lawhead. A world where magic is real and the warrior ethos is alive and well.

5. A book that’s your favorite color

Green: Magic Kingdom For Sale/Sold! by Terry Brooks.

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

Way-Farer by Dennis Schmidt. I end up mentioning this book almost every other tag it feels like but man, it has just been one of those books for me ever since my formative teen years.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

The Many Faces of Evil by John Feinberg. Took me many months to slowly work my way this excellent book. Probably about time for a re-read just to refresh myself.

8. Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

New Evidences that Demand a Verdict by Josh McDowell. Read this back in the 90’s and reading it again has really helped strengthen my Christian Faith.

Thank goodness I was able to actually complete this tag. After the Complete Failure of the Relationshipping Tag post I was a little worried that my tagging days were over and that I would be relegated to sitting on my rocker yelling at the kids to stop doing such dumbass tags AND to get off my lawn.

But nope, I still got it!

    1. I suspect most of these tags were created by, ahem, younger than me people. So their ideas of what constitutes “Life, the Universe and Everything” is not going to be fully fleshed out 😉

    1. I’m guessing a book on alien probes. He seemed extremely upset that Otsy and I talked about “taut buttocks” the other day even though he was the one that mentioned it in the review. I’m guessing some repressed memories were set loose and his psyche was trying to adjust to his new normal.

      Or The Big Book of Movies, which talks about all the movies made up to when it was published. So he doesn’t actually have to watch some of the garbage he talks about. I don’t blame him, I wouldn’t watch some of that stuff if you paid me!

      What about you? Got a Shakespeare book? Or something about sharks? 😉


      1. Like you, it depends on what bookshelf I pick, and then where I start counting from. On the shelf next to my desk here, which is mostly reference books (and Shakesepeare!) my age comes out as the Norton Anthology of English Literature, Fifth Edition, Volume 2. Not that exciting, I’m afraid.

  1. Nice little tag! Depending on where I start, for question (2) I get either Le Guin’s “The Complete Orsinia” or “British Tanks 1939-1945” 😉
