This one looked sort of fun. Why not, right? 
Tagged by the wonderful Kaylee.

1. Tag 3-5 people, so the fun keeps going!
2. Leave a comment at the original post at A Striped Armchair, so that Eva can collect everyone’s answers.
3. If you leave a comment and link back to Eva as the meme’s creator, she will enter you in a book giveaway contest! She has a whole shelf devoted to giveaway books that you’ll be able to choose from, or a bookmooch point if you prefer.
4. Remember that this is all about enjoying books as physical objects, so feel free to describe the exact book you’re talking about, down to that warping from being dropped in the bath water…

The book that’s been on your shelves the longest: 
A treasury of old Beatrix Potter stories. It's this big blue hardcover that looks like one of those classic storybooks in movies that moms always crack open to read to their kids from when they're getting ready to go to bed. It's even got some ritzy gold leaf on the edges of the pages.Ah memories... <3 class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">A book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time, etc.): 
Olivia the Pig books remind me of Christmases back when I was a wee little child. :) I got a different one each year from my aunt and I loved getting them so much. I have four of the big hardcover ones...I think I'm actually missing one now so I'll have to go search for it at B&N.

A book you acquired in some interesting way (gift, serendipity in a used bookstore, prize, etc.):
I've got review copies, tattered bookmooch books, books from when I was little, and a plethora of signed books which I guess is all pretty interesting. My most recent interesting find was a signed copy of Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson at my local B&N. Loved finding that.

The most recent addition to your shelves: 
I received Shelter Me by Alex Mcaulay for review a week or two ago. I don't usually get a ton of books for review and I don't buy very many so my book shelf grows really slowly...I like it that way though. No pressure. :)

A book that’s been with you to the most places: 
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It's got tons of dog ears, the cover is creased and cracked, and the pages are brown-ish (it's from bookmooch). I've carried it around with me everywhere for the past month and I haven't posted new chapter observation things for a while! It's so bad. I promise I'll get one up within a few days. :P I'm a complete slacker. It's a really good book though.

A bonus book that you want to talk about but doesn’t fit into the other questions:
I don't know! My bookshelf isn't really that interesting! I always see pictures from other bloggers who have these uncontrollable bookshelves and are constantly getting books to review and I don't understand it! I guess I'm sort of boring. I don't have a huge flow of books coming my way, my bookshelf is organized and contained, and my whole book fetish is rather laid back in comparison to other people. I can only stay that way because of my super fantastic local library. I make around two trips there every week. Love it.

And I tag...whoever wants to do it!
