I'm joining TGIF again today. This meme is hosted by GReads. It's a chance to recap the week on our blog and answer a question.
Today's question: From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you?
That's a fun question. I'm going to choose two, one from the present and one from the past.
Two summers ago, I went to the Books of Wonder midnight release party for Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Suzanne Collins was there, and at midnight she read the first few pages of Mockingjay and then signed all the books. (Well, she stamped them because of a hand injury). The party was so much fun -- some fans came in costume, dressed as Rue or Katniss. It was a memorable experience!
This is the book, along with a commemorative mug and my ticket!
My other book is from my childhood. I went to visit my parents last summer and found my favorite fairy tale book, which I put right into my suitcase:
I was obsessed with fairy tales when I was little, and I remember reading this book over and over -- as you can see by the dogeared jacket.
