Seven Deadly Sins

I was tagged by Charlene here on Booklikes, who stole this from someone else. Make sure to read all the way to the end because I'm going to tag 3 of YOU to do the same!


1. Greed- What is your most expensive book?

 I'm more of a reader than a collector, so I've never really spent a lot on any particular book. I skipped quite a few lunches to save up for my hardcover copy of Dark Forces when it was published. My most valuable books would have to be my Arkham House copies of Tales from the Nightside by Charles L. Grant, Demons by Daylight by Ramsey Campbell and my signed copies of The Waiting by Joe Hart, Through the Eyes of Strays by Glen Krisch, People Are Strange by James Newman, Thank You for the Flowers by Scott Nicholson, and That Which Should Not Be by Brett Talley.


2. Wrath- What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

 I really can't think of one. The shine has worn off quite a few of the "glitterati" for me, and I'm okay with just walking away from the wreck.


3. Gluttony- What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?

 I'm an unrepentant re-reader. I've read almost every book I've owned longer than a couple of years at least twice. If I was to hazard a guess, the books I've re-read the most would have to be Boy's Life by Robert McCammon, and The Pet by Charles L. Grant.


4. Sloth- Which book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

 That would have to be Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. I just can't pull the trigger on that one.


5. Pride- What book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

 Not my kind of thing. I enjoy discussing books with my fellow readers, and don't have any compulsion to sound "intellectual". Don't think much of people who do, to be honest.


6. Lust- What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?

 Define "attractive". I like characters of either sex who are independent, straightforward and real. That possess a depth to their personalities and character. Who are not "black" or "white", but comfortably grey, if you know what I mean.


7. Envy- What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

 Books as gifts would be a nice change on the family front. Some folks couldn't catch a hint if it landed on their face and wiggled. There are quite a few books I really want, but they simply can't be found for love or money anymore. I really want physical copies of James Newman's The Wicked and Kealan Patrick Burke's Stage Whispers.


 Which brings us to the tagging!
