Friday Fill-In #2 & The TBR Books Go To . . .

1. If I were a tree I would be . . . a weeping willow. . . because . . . according to the birthday chart, that's the tree I fell from (as it turns out, it just happens to be my favorite type of tree anyway).
2. If I were a bird I would fly over . . . the Sierra Nevada Mountains (rugged and beautiful).
3. If I were a book I hope I would be . . . a well loved and often read novel.
4. If I were a car . . . Mini Cooper.
5. If I could get rid of one piece of technology it would definitely be . . . commercials. . . because . . . I have no use for them.
6. If I could get rid of one bad habit at a snap of the fingers it would be . . . pushing the snooze button one too many times in the morning.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to . . . settling in with my book and going to bed early . . . , tomorrow my plans include . . . taking in a movie and spending the day any which way I want . . . and Sunday, I want to. . . rewind to Saturday!

The time has come to announce the winners of my duplicate TBR books drawings! If I could, I would go out and buy each of you a copy of the book(s) you put your name in for, but when I suggested it to my husband, he gave me one of those looks. You know the one. I guess I do need to make my car payment this month . . .

The winner of

The Fencing Master by Arturo Perez-Reverte


Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf!

The winner of

Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult


Gautami Tripathy at My Own Little Reading Room!

Congratulations! All I need now are the winners mailing addresses, and I will put your books in the mail as soon as I am able. You can send your address via e-mail to literaryfelineATgmailDOTcom.

Thank you to all who participated!


  1. WOO HOO! This will be my first BAFAB week book! Thank you!

    Ha ha, Gautami is on a real winning streak lately.

  2. According to that chart, this is my tree:

    FIG TREE (the Sensibility) - very strong, a bit self-willed, independent, does not allow contradiction or arguments, loves life, its family, children and animals, a bit of a social butterfly, good sense of humor, likes idleness and laziness, of practical talent and intelligence.

    I dislike most commercials, too. There are some funny ones, tho, every now and again :-)

    Thanks for playing!

  3. Congratulations Dewey and Gautami! Enjoy your books!
    Good answer on the commercials. My happiest piece of technology is my DVR so I can skip them!

  4. congrats to the winners!!

    I love that you do these friday fill ins. I like learning about you answers.

  5. Congrats to the winners! I have seen so many of these friday fill ins today and they are so fun to read! Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  6. Congratulations to the two winners. I'm supposedly an apple tree. The description didn't fit me.

  7. Apparently I'm a walnut tree but the description doesn't match me at all. I thought about being a Mini Cooper but went with reliable. Lots of commercials are just stupid but some are quite clever so I don't usually mind commercials. Enjoy your weekend! :)

  8. Dewey has got that right. I am having a winning streak lately!

    Congratulations to Dewey too!!! I won two books from her!

  9. Hello! So do you think you are like the willow description? As an arborist I just had to look it up, I have never seen this list before.

    I am a poplar (uncertainty) i can see bits of me there.

    I was a little dissappointed though as poplars have a short life expectancy compared to many other trees and drop their branches a lot.....uncertainty I guess!

    Thanks for that it was fun!

  10. Dewey - You're welcome. :-) I sent if off in today's mail and so you will probably get it sometime next week. Hopefully.

    Janet - Isn't that an interesting little chart? I guess there are charts out there for just about everything. :-)

    You are right, there are some funny commercials. I could still live without them, I think. Haha

    Jaimie - Yes! I don't know how I lived without a DVR. We only got ours a few months ago--at least the one for the TV. We have one on my husband's computer, but we don't watch much TV from there. :-)

    Niki - Thanks. I discovered the meme from Tanabata. I'm giving the Fill-Ins a try. A excuse to post an entry to my blog. My answers may not always be the most entertaining, but it's fun to do.

    Iliana - The Fill-Ins are fun to do. I just wish I was more witty! I hope you have a great weekend too.

    Booklogged - I could see bits and pieces of myself in other descriptions, and while I partially met the descripton of the weeping willow, I don't completely. The chart is just like all those little online quizes. :-)

    Tanabata - Who comes up with these things? LOL I think reliable is a better answer. :-)

    Gautami - You are one lucky person! :-)

    Dancin' Fool - I'm somewhat like the description of a weeping willow, but not completely. :-)

  11. Awwwwwwww I missed the giveaway...

    CONGRATS to both Dewey and Gautami!

  12. I was so excited about winning a book last time that I forgot to check the chart. I'm a willow, too! My daughter's birthday is a week from mine, but she's a lime. Which doesn't sound much like her, though mine sounds like me. I hope you have that "anchoring partner" which I at first read as an "acorning partner." :P Mine is a hazelnut, which sounds much like him, too.

  13. Dewey - My husband evidently falls from a Longbeam Tree, for which some of it fits, but not all. He's is definitely my anchor. :-)

  14. Congratulations to Dewey and Gautami!

    And I'm a FIR TREE (the Mysterious) - extraordinary taste, dignity, sophisticated, loves anything beautiful, moody, stubborn, tends to egoism but cares for those close to them, rather modest, very ambitious, talented, industrious, uncontented lover, many friends, many foes, very reliable.

  15. This is embarrasing! I can't believe I have copied the wrong result!!! I'm supposed to be 'Fig Tree', but I copied 'Fir Tree' instead! LOL.

    FIG TREE (the Sensibility) - very strong, a bit self-willed, independent, does not allow contradiction or arguments, loves life, its family, children and animals, a bit of a social butterfly, good sense of humor, likes idleness and laziness, of practical talent and intelligence.

    Looks like I need to change my lenses, muhahaha...

  16. I like fig trees too! LOL Okay, so I love all trees. :-)
