Sunday’s 7 Random Bookish Things Tag

Wendi over at Wendi’s Book Corner tagged me for the 7 Random Bookish Things Tag. So first I will give you the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs
4. Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog!

Seven Bookish Things About Me:

1. I read almost all of my text books in college completely, even though some of them were very painful; The most memorable of the ones I didn’t read was “The Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad; Anna at Diary of an Eccentric thought that if we read it out loud we could get through it together–no such luck.

2. I recently discovered Christopher Moore and just love his books. I’m on a mission to read them all.

3. One of my deepest obsessions is with The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux and all of its incarnations–movies and book spinoffs alike.

4. I really enjoy audio books on that early morning commute with my husband, especially books that have us laughing at 5 AM.

5. I became a book reviewed by chance and find myself more engrossed than ever; now if only I could get paid to do what I love.

6. I collect writing books that provide inspiration and guidance in the hope that I’ve missed something when tackling the novel, but I’m beginning to think the books are not going to help me much if I don’t sit down and write something.

7. I love to make sure my books look well read, though not on the first read and not if I plan on giving them away as prizes on my blog…and especially if I borrow them from Anna or anyone else.

Ok, Who am I tagging? Here’s the list of seven:
