A meme post is better than no post at all...right? RIGHT?

The book that’s been on your shelves the longest.
I know this sounds lame, but basically the Houghton Mifflin Canadian Dictionary of the English Language. And some sort of thesaurus. I moved out with them and through everything I've managed to hang onto them. Weird, eh?

A book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time).
My grade 10 and grade 11 yearbooks. Nothing says specific time in your life like a yearbook does! I somehow managed to lose my grade 9 yearbook though.

A book you treasure the most.
That would probably be my most favourite book in the world - a hardback copy of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy: A trilogy in five parts by Douglas Adams. Besides being my favourite book, the way I got it was beyond awesome - I was complaining one day via MSN to my best friend Peggy that I had lost my copy in one of my many moves and how much it sucked. A week later I got a call at the front desk (I was living in Residence) that I had a package for me; it was from Amazon. I opened it and there it was! Peggy had bought it for me for "Christmas" without ever telling me about it. Have I mentioned how much of an awesome person she is and how much I love her?

The most recent addition to your shelves.
I've been on a book buying spree the last three weeks - I've bought Another Faust by Daniel Nayeri & Dina Nayeri Viergutz, The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, The White Queen by Phillippa Gregory, Downtown Owl by Chuck Klosterman and Runaway Devil by Robert Remington & Sherri Zickefoose (a non-fiction account of the 12 year old girl in Alberta who murdered her parents and brother in 2006).
And then, of course, my monthly issue of Cosmo & Readers Digest (I swear, sometimes I think I'm the only person under the age of 50 who reads it).

Your current read, your last read and the book you’ll read next.
Currently: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova - I keep reading other books which is why I haven't finished it yet.
Last Read: The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown would be the book I technically finished last.
Next Read: The Official Drivers Handbook for my license and Downtown Owl by Chuck Klosterman.
