Did you know that today is National Librarian’s Day in India? Random fact, but I thought it would give me the perfect excuse to do a new book tag. The original creator is Stripped Cover Lit on Youtube. Mostly, I just like doing tags because they are both easy and fun!
So let’s get into it.
1. What has been the most influential library in your life?
An easy answer would be my library in Minnesota. However, the one library which gave me the initial love for books was in Sherwood, Oregon, where I grew up until I was eight. I looked it up, and it looks like they have built a massive library, but the one I went to was this tiny library with a cozy feel. It was my first library, and it holds a special place in my heart!
2. Honest Assessment: What will they title your biography?
“What Happened to This One?” or something like that. Something that hints to my lapse in sanity. I’m just kidding…kind of.
3. The story from your life that you most hope your librarian never finds out?
Lol…I’m kind of straight-laced. I treat my library books like they are precious and I’ve never damaged or lost one. So, unfortunately, no dark stories I’m afraid for a librarian to find out. Maybe that one time I got to the library too late to return a book that was due that day, but miraculously they didn’t charge me a day’s late fee. That was great!
4. What is your favorite word?
You want me to choose one? That’s impossible! I guess I’ll go with “supercilious.” I loved that word when I was younger, both because it’s long and it slips off your tongue.
5. 3 Weird things of which you are afraid and 1 way which you would prefer not to die?
Weird things? Most of my fears are normal, like fear of heights or hatred of spiders. Let’s see. I fear driving a car, putting my head underwater, and going to new places. Not exactly weird things… And I would prefer to die quickly, so any way where I take a long time to die I wouldn’t like…like torture.
6. Your favorite book as a grade schooler?
Probably the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne. I’ve mentioned this series a few times on my blog.
7. What have your interactions with the police been like?
I don’t really think I’ve interacted with the police much. Certainly not while doing something bad. I haven’t even been pulled over or gotten a parking ticket. Let’s hope that my luck lasts!
8. All-time favorite book cover?
I don’t have one. There are so many books with beautiful covers! And I’ve never been extremely particular about my book covers, as long as the book inside is great.
9. How many places have you lived?
Let me think…4 states (Oregon, New Mexico, Minnesota, and now Ohio), though some of those states I moved to different houses within the same place.
10. 11 booktubers that you like and/or admire and why do you like and/or admire them?
- Jordan Harvey (because she has such detailed thoughts about books)
- The Authentic Observer (she understands complex literary devices)
- LilyCReads (she’s sarcastic, like me!)
- InsaneReader (he’s hilarious!)
- jessethereader (he’s the first Booktuber I started watching. He’s so fun!)
- Merphy Napier (she reads a wide variety of books, giving me TBR ideas)
- Hailey in Bookland (she reads a lot of the modern YA, also giving me ideas)
- I think I’ve run out of people…I watch a lot of videos, but only follow a select few.
So, there you have it. It’s not like the ordinary book tags I usually do, but it felt like an interesting idea. It would be even more interesting if I wasn’t so boring, but there you have it!
