I found this meme on Alice's and Stacy's blogs and decided to play along. Books memes are fun!

The Rules Are:
  1. Post your responses.
  2. Tag anywhere from 1-5 friends.
  3. Leave comments to let them know they’ve been tagged.
  4. Come back and leave a comment when your post is up.

The next 5 books on your to be read shelf:

  • Wicker by Kevin Guilfoile
  • Red Dragon by Thomas Harris
  • Thief With No Shadow by Emily Gee
  • The Secrets of a Fire King by Kim Edwards
  • In Search of a Distant Voice by Taichi Yamada

Note: The above are subject to change since my reading depends a lot on my moods, but currently these are what I have in mind.

The last 4 books you’ve read:

  • Be Mine by Laura Kasischke
  • Jackson Rule by Dinah McCall
  • Ice Blue by Anne Stuart
  • Sight Unseen by Samantha Graves

The last 3 books you’ve borrowed (library or friend):
Nowadays, I don't visit the library anymore. First, either the books I want are hard to find or are already borrowed. Moreover, I like reading books at my own leisure and hate to be rushed so that they are returned at a specific time. Usually I will either rent them at a rental bookstore (where they have a longer rental period like 2 months; and you can also choose not to return if you like the book but of course you will have to pay the full amount), or buy them at bookstores.

The last 2 non-fiction books you’ve read:

Hmm...I don't think I have read a non-fiction book for quite some time. Even if I do, they are usually self-improvement books but I can't remember the titles. It has been years ago.

The 1 book you wish everyone would read:
This is another question that I can't answer. I believe one reads for himself, and for pleasure. Of course, it is always a bonus if one reads for knowledge and enlightenment too. Just pick a book you like and read.

I won’t tag anyone else, but please leave me a comment if you decide to play along. :)

  1. Oh yeah, so glad you played! I'm so lucky in that so many books that I do want to read are available at my library. Saves me a lot of moolah! :)

    Hi Melody, thanks for playing! I will definitely check out some of the books you've listed here.

    You're the opposite of me in terms of reading fiction vs non-fiction. I'm a big fan on N-F. Hehehe... Like you, I prefer buying them for keeps.

    Happy reading!!

    I played!

    If you like the idea of the rental places, you might want to try a site like bookins or bookmooch. You trade with other people and only pay for the postage. When you're done, you put it back on your list until someone else wants it. Keeps costs and storage requirements down for me :)
