My Sins Revealed

When DL Hammons tagged me to talk about 7 sins
7 DEADLY SINS of the LITERARY WORLD
Getting out of my down-dog yoga pose, I began my quest in
DEADLY DEBAUCHERY.

 
GREED - What is your most inexpensive book?
I've been known to pass a bookshelf at a business or an apartment's rec/reading room with a book or two on my way out. "Excuse me, do you work/live here?"  *starts sprinting* "I'll never return it! Ever! Suckas!"

WRATH - Who's the author you have a love/hate relationship with?
Any author that creates a series and makes me wait for the next book to release... you guys know who you are! I wrath you!!

GLUTTONY - What book have you devoured over and over again with  no shame?
Hands down my Betty Crocker Cookbook. Seriously!! It's the only book I A) read over and over again B) devour...well at least the outcomes. I don't think I've ever read a novel twice. Not my thing.

SLOTH - What books have you neglected to read due to laziness?
How to be a millionaire. How to obtain a perfect body plus personality in an hour. How to be #1 and never have to go #2. The list is endless!

PRIDE - What books do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
The Bible. Not only can I tell you where you came from and why you're here, but where you're going. Dang, I'm good! Treat me right and I'll personally knock on heaven's door to get you out of hell. Was that an intellectual analogy? I'll never say. Mwahahaha!

LUST - What attributes do you find attractive in a male or female character?
Alpha males with big ... wait, PG13... hearts. For a female? Dominatrix personality with brute honesty. They make you say dang! with a giggle while the men make you say dang! with a hot flash.

ENVY - What book would you like to receive most as a gift?
Call me selfish but, I'd like to receive mine (one hopeful day) in the mail from a big publisher saying "Here's the last one we could find. Looks like we need to reprint at least a billion more." To which I'll reply, "Again?"

How would YOU answer any of these questions??
Let me greedily envy your prideful answers full of lust for the slothful things you wish to wrathfully have while feeding off your gluttonous ways.
Just saying...
 
p.s. if you're looking for a post topic, steal this one! It's fun, and legal :)

A cookbook... YES!!!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

69! You have a much more fun mind than I.

JoJo said...

For me my love/hate is with Stephen King. I enjoy his stories but I hate how he builds stuff up for 800 pages, kills everyone off in the last 10 and never gives an epilogue of what happened to the survivors. Except for The Shining and Dolores Claiborne.

PS your word verification is on; seems that blogger turned it on everyone's blogs this past week.

Yolanda Renee said...

Loved the humor and honesty of your answers! LOL
Betty Crocker has always been my go to book. Even bought one as a Christmas present this year!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome answers. I don't read too many books more than once either. Awesome you love the Betty Crocker book. I really like Joy of Cooking.

Pat Hatt said...

haha I wrath you, that could be a new saying that catches on all over.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

"69 sins," eh? Yeah, baby, yeah! LOL!

This is a fun meme. I may steal it and do it myself in January, once all the xmas posts are kaput.

Tammy, you're a riot, as always. :D

Bish Denham said...

Too funny! Gluttony was a particular hoot. I did this too, but I was waaaaaay to serious!

Sarah Foster said...

Love your answers! I guess a cookbook is the closest you can come to literally devouring a book..

Nick Wilford said...

If only the books listed in your sloth category existed! Top answers.

Neurotic Workaholic said...

There are some novels I haven't read more than once, such as the Harry Potter books. But there are some novels I like to reread. Reading them again is like enjoying one of my favorite meals; even though I already know what the food tastes like, I still like to enjoy it again.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

You're so funny. Who can pass up free books? And I used to re-read books all the time and I seldom do it now. Just not enough time.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Your answer to the last one is hilarious.
I don't reread books either.

Elephant's Child said...

Big, big smiles. I do reread books. Some of them often. And am greedy for more.
Everything else goes on the later list when a book is involved. Well almost everything...

The Silver Fox said...

"How to be #1 and never have to go #2." Very cute.

Your title made me think I'd be getting a much hotter post, though. Ah, well...

Lynda R Young said...

Hmm, alpha males... ;)

cleemckenzie said...

I'm in your Envy group, but I hope to have that letter from the publisher any day, then I'll start the series and keep you wrathful while waiting for the next book.

I may have to steal the topic and explore my own sinful soul more deeply.

Carrie-Anne said...

Agree about the love/hate relationship with a writer who puts out a great book which you later discover has a sequel or is the first in a series. It's particularly hard to wait when the book ends on a cliffhanger setting things up for the next book, instead of wrapping up all the major plot threads and giving some type of closure.

DL Hammons said...

I LOVED this and I can't decide which answer is my favorite. And I thought I was odd because I never re-read books. :)

Suzi said...

Glad to see you're thinking big. For book two, you'll have to go for a trillion though instead of a billion. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Your Betty Crocker Cookbook...I like that! You went above and beyond with your answers. I enjoyed this very much!

Tammy Theriault said...

Thank you everyone for embracing my quirky ways!!!

SC Author said...

AHAHAHA, this is hilarious! Love the answer to the last sin :D

My gluttony is Harry Potter. I stopped rereading them for a few years, now, because I seriously read them way too much and I felt very guilty.

Cynthia said...

Fun answers! Speaking of cookbooks, I just came across a cookbook that's all about cakes, and it has been one of my guilty pleasure reads.

Empty Nest Insider said...

These were all great, but the last one was my favorite! I haven't reread a book, since I was prepping for a test in college. I still have nightmares about it. Happy Holidays, Tammy!

Julie

Jemi Fraser said...

Awesome answers! Have to admit to not reading many of the 'classics' because I can't be bothered to work that hard any more :)

Al Diaz said...

I've not been able to remember one single book I've re-read. I think sloth is my greatest sin. After eating virgins...and raiding villages... and burning people I don't like... and kicking some dwarves now and then...and encouraging them to stalk pretty ladies. Now since when did you get dwarfettes? Hahahaha. I bet they are inflatable dolls.

Suze said...

The sprinting out the door with a book made me chuckle. :)

M Pax said...

You should see my Betty Crocker cookbook. It's falling apart. Yet it's the cookbook that never fails me... well, rarely.

Tammy Theriault said...

Betty Crocker is the bomb!!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Grrrrreat post, Tammy. I love your answers.

I've got a love/hate thing going with the dude who wrote "The Bridges of Madison County." (I won't even mention his name. And NOT just because I don't remember it...) He wrote that piece of poo in one stinking weekend, just for a lark, and made a bazillion dollars on it. How utterly insensitive of him.

Christine Rains said...

*LOL* LOVE your answer to the last one. I should have thought of that when I did this 7 sins thingy.

klahanie said...

Hey Tam-bare!

First of all, I know I don't have to type in the numbers shown below the comment section.

Oh look, the number I wont be typing is "69", or in my case 34 1/2 and it sure wasn't my equatorial region. Can I say that, Tam-bare?

Moving on from that Bible stuff, I have copy of your book already to send you!

Your gosh darn adoring fan,

Gary :)

Medeia Sharif said...

The "dang" reaction to a character is a great one. I want me a Betty Crocker cookbook.

Julie Dao said...

HAHAHA! A hearty YES to "Envy" - I also would like my final book to arrive on my doorstep and have the publisher order a billion more. We can dream, right???

Shell Flower said...

Oh, Tammy, you are so damn funny. I can't wait until your book comes out as I know it will make me laugh so hard I pee my pants. Loved this "How to be #1 and never have to go #2." OMG, that would be hilarious.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Sad to say I should know my Bible much better than I do, so I would avoid revealing my ignorance there.

Heather Holden said...

LOL, love your answers! I think most readers experience that same kind of wrath... :P

Kittie Howard said...

Fun answers! Love your wit! Have a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

You're the best, Tammy. I'm humored by your responses - namely, 62 that you can't take a position on, and alpha males with big...Wallets, right? And...Hugs for a very Merry Xmas to you and yours! xo

Kristin Smith said...

I just love your sense of humor! You had me crackin' up on the lust one...that's right, keep it PG13. Hehehe. You're the best! :)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Tammy - those were great answers .. lust yes with a decent character attached ... and someone who enjoys food - as I read cookbooks for ever - never fully through ...

Cheers and have Christmas week .. Hilary

Li said...

Oh. So you're the woman who stole the book I was meaning to steal from the Free Reading Rack. *Wrath*

Tammy Theriault said...

Season hugs for everyone!!!

DMS said...

Great answers! I thought the cookbook response was perfect for you (I don't cook often- so I've never even read a whole cookbook from start to finish). Hope your dream book (yours) comes in the mail like that one day! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Hah! I love this, Tamizzle.
