The Seven Deadly Sins of Reading

Hello everyone,

So The Happy Typewriter tagged me and dared me to take this. Thanks!

Greed

Defined as: An intense and selfish desire for something.

What is your most expensive book?

Probably my Julia Child cookbooks, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Love Julia!

Wrath

Defined as: Extreme anger.

What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

I really don’t have a love/hate relationship with any of my authors. Probably Stephen Ambrose might be the closest, because in some of his books he repeats what he wrote in his others. I still love his books though. Want to get them all.

Gluttony

Defined as: Intense over-indulgence.

What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

The Dot and the Line by Norton Juster. After seeing the cartoon when I was in school, I got the book in my twenties and I can read it in about 15 minutes. I can read it anytime and any day because it is such a great book.

Sloth

Defined as: a reluctance to work or make an effort.

What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?

Moby Dick

Pride

Defined as: satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

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

There is no specific book, instead there is a specific genre. I love reading history and I always talk about the history books I have read. I feel smart after reading one.

Lust

Defined as: a strong sexual desire.

What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

Handsome, intelligent, happy-go-lucky, friendly, interesting.

Envy

Defined as: a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.

What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

Escoffier by Auguste Escoffier.

I haven’t figured out who to tag yet, so hang with me.
