The Bookshelf Meme and a Contest!

Thao's holding a giveaway of Linda Gerber's Death by Denim.

Enter here!

The Bookshelf Meme is from Thao too:
1. Tag 3-5 people, so the fun keeps going.
2. Leave a comment at the original post at A Striped Armchair, so that Eva can collect everyone’s answers.

The book that’s been on your shelves the longest
Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White, Aesop's fables (in Turkish), stories from Hans Christian Andersen and tales from the brothers Grimm.

A book that reminds you of something specific in your life
There's probably others but one that comes to mind is Let’s Meet on Platform 8 by Carole Matthews - I received a free copy when I bought a magazine while travelling through the UK and read it throughout my vacation.

A book you acquired in some interesting way
Well, since I always buy books while travelling, and mail order books all the time, many of them have come from different places. The Jerusalem Bible from Australia, the Penguin Romantic Poets (can't find a link to my edition) from Turkey (Antalya), The Witch of Endor (I can't seem to find a proper link to this novel) from England (Manchester), Der Ruf der Trommel from Germany...

The most recent addition to your shelves
See my book fair post below!

The book that’s been with you to the most places
The Lord of the Rings, as well as books by Charles Bukowski, Paul Auster and Marilynne Robinson.

A bonus book that you want to talk about but doesn’t fit into the other questions
YA! I love reading and collecting young adult books! Especially ones from the Canadian young adult and middle-grade books community.

I'll tag... anyone who's reading this!
