A Tag from Dawn

Dawn from Dawn's Daybreak is a faithful blogging friend who teaches kindergarten. What a lucky group of children to have her for a teacher! Dawn tagged me with a book meme. I've actually done this before on my book blog, but I'm game to share again. The rules are:

1. Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

2. Share seven random and/or weird book facts about yourself.

3. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.

4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

My seven random book facts:

1. I got my first library card when I was five years old, after signing my name in cursive.

2. While in high school, I got in trouble when my mother caught me reading Peyton Place.

3. I’ve read all of Ernest Hemingway’s novels without like any of them.

4. I’ve read most of Ernest Hemingway’s short stories and loved almost all of them.

5. I served as a library aide when I was in junior high school.

6. As an adult, I worked as a Library Clerk in a public high school.

7. I established a church library from scratch, using the Dewey Decimal System and card catalog and grew the collection to over 1,000 volumes.

The seven fortunate people I choose to do this are:

Cathy at Melodies and Hymnsongs

Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor

Diane at A Picture Is Worth...

Chris at Chris's Corner

Squawmama at Our Adventures with Tassie

Shelia at Note Songs

Carol at Charli and Me

After you leave a comment, take a look at my sidebar. There are two make-up books I'm giving away.  If you win one and don't need it because you're so gorgeous, maybe you'll have another Christmas present to regift!

Good mornin', Mizz Sally,

I enjoyed reading your list here...those are always fun.

You've had such an interesting background with books! I remember getting my first library card, too, but not because I could write in cursive. It was pink, with a little metal plate in the corner, and I remember the blue inked stamp pad the librarians would put on the book so I'd know when to return it. Which I never did on time. :(

Good Morning Sally! Great and interesting responses. Hats off to you for starting the church library from scratch. Quite a feat! ~Rhonda :)

Hi Sally,
I never really cared much for Hemmingway either. I am up for your tag so I will answer later this week. Again, have a wonderful day!

I didn't get my first library card until I was an adult. Is that not sad? My mother was a hermit. At least I could use the school library. :o)

Good Morning Sally
First that is so interesting because I sent you 2 emails yesterday so you would get my email address.
How strange is that. I’m going to do it again right now
Those tags are such a great way to get to know people better…very informative and helps to inspire also.
Have a great day and let me know whether you get the email this time.

Sally, I am excited about your book give-a-way. I am very happy to win.
I sent you my address by e-mail.

I like your book answers. It is funny that you did the same tag today.
About the other tag on the 10 bloggers. Please feel free to do it or not. It is very involved but I did enjoy doing the tag. It was long.

Have a great day.

I'll try to get to work on that, Sally. Sign this lucky ( blessed) girl up again, winning giveaways all over the place!

Hi Sally,
My post is up :>)

Dawn said...

Wow, I'm impressed that you set up the church library. That's too funny about Peyton Place. That would be considered mild by today's standards!

Thanks for playing.

take care,

Dear Sallyness, no wonder you're so full of wisdom, you've been in the library your entire life!;)
Oh, I received the Joyce Meyer book today. I really didn't realize I won it!! Thank you so much.
Okay, I'll do this tag!! You stinker!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Neat meme! Can I tag myself to answer it, or is that just wrong?
