Tagged! Whew...

BookButterfly has the great honor of being the first ever to "tag" me - that I'm aware of. I might have been tagged ans never known it... I hope not.

Link to the person that tagged you, post the rules somewhere in your meme, answer the questions, tag six people in your post, let the tagees know they’ve been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog, let the tagger know your entry is posted.

Who’s your all-time favorite author and why?
Uh... I guess C.S. Lewis, because he wrote The Chronicles of Narnia, Till We Have Faces and The Great Divorce. And because he was just so jolly. I wish he was still alive. I would have written him a letter, and gotten my sister to send him her Narnia drawings. But Regina Doman is my favorite living author for many many reasons. :)

Who was your first favorite author and why? Do you still consider him/her among your favorites? First favorite was Francis Hodgson Burnett. I read The Secret Garden and A Little Princess about 8 times each when I was 8 or 9. Yes, she's still among my favorites because of the impact those two books had upon me at the time.

Who’s the most recent addition to your list of favorite authors, and why?
G.K. Chesterton, because he was witty and brilliant and not too many people read him; I have a thing for reading mostly-unknown authors and listening to mostly-unknown music and telling the world about them.

If someone asked you who your favorite authors were right now, which authors would first pop out of your mouth?
C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, Regina Doman, L.M. Montgomery, Victor Hugo, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Elizabeth George Speare, George MacDonald. Those are the names that would pop out of my mouth before someone popped a cork in my mouth.

I hereby taggeth Elenatintil, Grace (when she gets back), Alyosha (anything to get her to post something! ;) Just kidding...) Lady Rose, Hannah, and Lainey

No kidding. :D

Thanks v. much. I shall post the Alyosha edition of it ...ah... sometime.

Oh, and (a very late) congratulations on getting Luce! So much for a non-romantic part, though... :P She's a fun character.

I don't think I have that part anymore, actually. They changed it to the fat servant, Nell. And I didn't want that... so I don't know what's happening now. Ah, well. That's life...

That sometime should be sooner than later. You haven't updated your blog since you saw Prince Caspian. :(

Lady Rose said...

I got it up and posted Delaney! Thanks for tagging me!
