A few days (or so) ago, I was tagged by the artist formerly known as the diva for this book related meme. Of course, I was between books at the time and waiting (rather impatiently) for my next read to come in at the library.

“For once, I wouldn’t mind being thought less of,” muttered Eragon.

I don’t tag, but feel free to steal if you’d like.
