TGIF is a weekly meme created and hosted by Ginger of GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.
Question: From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you - is it signed by the author? Or maybe it's your favorite story of all time? Share it with us.
My Answer: It's a very hard decision to make, saying you value one book over the others in your collection. However, there are 4 books that I value highly and would be very upset if I lost any of them.
1) Watership Down by Richard Adams - My original copy is 16 years old, and I had read it 4 times in the 7th grade. I love that book so much, and it's still one of my absolute favorite books.
2) Tales from Watership Down by Richard Adams - I know what you're thinking. That's not like the copies I've seen. You're right because one of my dear college friends (also a lib-sci grad) rebound this copy for me. It's a one-of-a-kind copy and I wouldn't trade it for even a signed first edition.
3) Abandon by Meg Cabot - My first book by Meg Cabot and also my first book won in a blog giveaway. I was so surprised when I got the email from Jill at The O.W.L. that I'd won. It's definitely one that I treasure (and enjoyed reading).
4) Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - This was an unexpected gift from Karen one Christmas, and it's become one of my favorite books. It's also the first book that my beau and I read together. Each of our copies is signed by Maggie... to both of us. ^_^
