Life Story in Books--Blog Hop and Giveaway


A couple of weeks ago, someone asked me which book or author was my inspiration in my writing. My muse, so to speak. I stared at them, dumbfounded, and thought. . . Honestly? Like we all just stick to one voice or one type of writing and live/breathe it? I am a person who has loved books my whole life. How can I discriminate that love? BUT . . .
As I've pondered this thought, I've realized something. I can remember the periods of my life according to what I've read. Pathetic? A little. I had plenty of friends--AND I loved spending time with characters in books.
The whole idea has got me feeling kind of nostalgic. In an attempty to harness it, I've decided to write my life story . . . IN BOOKS. Kind of, a history in years of books I've loved.
However, waxing nostalgic is NO FUN when you do it all by yourself. So I'm turning this into a blog hop/share. On Friday, May 28th, I want everyone to post your life story in books. ie. what was your favorite book in 1st grade, 2nd, teenage years, adulthood before marriage, post-child, etc. (You get the idea.)What books shaped you into the person you are today?
Sign up now...and be entered into a drawing for a ten dollar barnes and noble gift card. Oh, and don't forget to push 'follow' when you link up. Thanks for playing! Please say you adored Pippi Longstockings in elementary school the way I did. :-)

Oh, man, I used to read the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys book religiously when I was in Elementary school. Loved them.

Sounds fun. Is there a special way to join, or do I just comment here? Your blog is looking AWESOME!

Love this idea. I was never a Pippi fan, but I sure was a Babysitters Club fanatic. And anything by Lois Duncan. Now, it's Janet Evanovich and Nora Roberts. The years in between are sort of fuzzy ... Going to have to give it some more thought.

Why doesn't the list show?... and how do I add the list to my site?
This was fun...but very tough to choose.

Jo,
I have no idea why it doesn't list it like I've seen on other sites. But it's making me say freakin freaker A LOT!
