I’ve recently been tagged by Tracy, at Adventure Awaits, for the Bookish Book-lover tag. Many thanks, Tracey! I love to spiel about books! I think the rules were to list one book per question, unless specified otherwise. But I can’t really be expected to restrain myself, can I?
1) What Book Are You Currently Reading?
A book about listening to God, a book about someone who escaped from a cult, the Silmarailion, The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict, and my bible. I’m also reading Voyage of the Dawn Treader to little bro. Life is busy.
2) What’s The Last Book You Finished?
Queen Elizabeth’s Wooden Teeth (and Other Historical Fallacies). It was an awesome book! (Shennachies are historians, as well as storytellers).
