Just because I love anything that allows me to talk about my books!

Knitting yarns did this post and I love it, so here it goes;

The book that’s been on your shelves the longest.-
Wow, Id have to say its a book with a compilation of dog stories. I don't think it even has a name! Ive had books my entire life but as far as my current bookshelves go (which I love by the way!) that is probably it.

A book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time).
I'd have to say Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. It reminds me of a specific time in my life. I was just coming to terms with and embracing my sexuality. This book shows the love between 2 women so beautifully. It isn't in your face or trying to prove a point. It just tells their love story and I really appreciated the normalcy of it. This is one of those books that I will read many times in my life. Oh, and it is way better than the movie which I have also loved forever!

The book that’s been with you to the most places.
Probably My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccoult. I read this book over the course of 2 days in every spare moment I had. Literally! I had it with me everywhere and read it everywhere; bathroom stalls, in line at the grocery store...everywhere! For me it was the epitome of one of those books that you cant stop reading but yet you don't want to end.

The most recent addition to your shelves.
Being super poor in grad school, I have come to love the library even more than half price books. But, I did recently buy the Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. I knew that even if I borrowed it, it would end up being one to buy. Its a book set in Seattle and written from the perspective of a dog. I mean come on, it was practically written for me! It was worth the $8, go read it! :)

Your current read, your last read, and the book you'll read next.
Currently I am reading (actually listening to book on cd because I have to actually read books for my dissertation and there are way too many of them to list!) The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle. My last read was The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger which was different but really good. I also just saw the movie which was good, not as good as the book but that goes without saying! I don't know what my next will be. I have 3 different ones checked out from the library. I will let you know when I get there!

Alright - your turn to play along! Either do this meme on your blog, or answer in comment form one or all of the questions!
