Meme: I've been tagged!

Here's my third golden oldie post (from October, 2008), with an update at the end, while I'm vacationing in South Africa:

Apparently there's a new blog-tagging game called Meme going around, where each taggee has to write six book-related things about him/herself, then pass the word by tagging six other bloggers. I was tagged by Christine Duncan and her Rule of Three blog at and you can read her answers in her September 29, 2008 entry titled "Meme?". Here's my six book-related facts:

1. My TBR pile includes lots of mysteries, but also some literary, women's fiction, romance, and short story anthology books.

2. I'm in a book club that meets monthly to drink wine, eat dessert, gossip, and discuss that month's book.

3. I took a speed-reading class in elementary school, so I can read pretty fast.

4. My favorite children's picture book is Possum Come A Knockin'. My kids tired of it long before I did. It's hilarious!

5. I suck at writing book reviews, so I don't do them, and having to write a back cover blurb for someone else makes me break out in a sweat.

6. I did indeed read Nancy Drew when I was young, but my favorite mystery writer in my teenage years was Edgar Allan Poe.

Here's the rules of the game:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on the blog.
3. Write six random bookish things about yourself.
4. Tag sixish people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know he or she has been tagged.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

In the original post, I tagged six other mystery author friends. If you're reading this post now and have a blog of your own, consider yourself tagged :) and post your six book-related facts. And now here's a seventh fact about me, just to keep this post fresh:

7. Visiting book clubs is my favorite kind of author event, because I not only get to discuss my books with the members, I usually come away with a few new book suggestions to add to my TBR list. If you want me to talk to your book club, either in person if you meet near Colorado Springs or via speakerphone, contact me at my website.

Fun post. I'll have to see if I remember to consider myself tagged. Busy day, and expecting the phonecall to go pick up the son any minute.

Not sure I am good at book reviews either, but I keep doing them. Darn it. Nice meme!
