I’m procrastinating on catching up on reviews here, and there’s tons of stuff I should be doing to get ready for this weekend. But here I am, participating in my first Booking Through Thursday!
What was the last book you bought?
Name a book you have read MORE than once
Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
Probably, but I can’t think of one right now …
How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews
That would be all of the above, well, except that I don’t often read reviews until I’ve read the book, come to think of it.
Do you prefer fiction or nonfiction?
What’s more important in a novel — beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
Most loved/memorable character (character/book)
Yikes. Maybe Anne/of Green Gables?
Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
I’m reading Mariette in Ecstacy by Ron Hansen at the moment.
What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?
I finished Illuminated by Matt Bronleewe last night.
Have you ever given up on a book half way in?
Sure: The Brothers Karamazov, Wuthering Heights (both quite some time ago now); and two more just on a recent vacation.
