Snapped up this idea from blogger-bud, Didi Oviatt! Please stop by Didi Oviatt, Author – and tell her I sent you! 😉

Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?
Number 56 is Lucian Bane’s Reginald Bones.
Pick a book set in your city/country.
Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks. The ending tears me apart, but still love the story!
Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to.
It is a purely fictional town, but after reading Farrah Rochon’s six-book series located in Maplesville, I’m always wondering why I can’t find a sleepy little southern town like that. Moments in Maplesville (Bundle Edition)
Pick a book that’s your favorite color.
Purple is my favorite color and I’m going to choose MY book, In the Best Interest of the Child, since the cover was made especially for me! *Shameless self-promotion!*
Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
Without a doubt, Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye! I was a teenager and before that book, I read mostly mysteries and fairy tales. But The Bluest Eye was the first book that had me bawling like a baby and connecting with Morrison’s use of simile and hyperbole. She counts it as one of her lesser works, but for me, it’s simply the best!
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
The Millionaire’s Regret by Nicholas Field! And no, it’s not about some brooding, dominant, rich guy romancing some silly broad! It’s a Suspense/Thriller…which is what I had a problem with – no suspense, no thrills. I tried THREE times to read this book. It was so dry and uneventful, I’d move on to something else. I hate DNFs and tried a fourth time and stuck with it…and was rewarded with a great story and the MOTHER of all plot twists! It’s not the best book I’ve ever read, but it is tightly written…once you get past page thirty or so, however, the plot twist IS the best I’ve ever read. It’s a shame this author didn’t continue writing. (My review!)
Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?
Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideals in America by Ibram X. Kendi. If I can make it through a nearly six hundred page book about ideals, beliefs, and practices that only serve to destroy, I will more than deserve the several drinks I’ll have after I finish.
