Here’s the latest from Booking Through Thursday.
I’ve seen this series of questions floating around the ‘net the last few days, and thought it looked like a good one for us!
What was the last book you bought?
It was a children’s book titled Those Shoes.
Name a book you have read MORE than once
Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox
Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
can’t really think of one at this moment
How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews
If I’m in the store or library just browsing, then it’s usually by the summary. When I go with a specific book in mind, then it’s because of a recommendation or review. Most of the books I’ve chosen lately have been because I’ve read about them on book blogs.
Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
What’s more important in a novel – beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
Most loved/memorable character (character/book)
Junie B. Jones – I taught kindergarten for 9 years and I can so relate to her actions. She just cracks me up!
Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
Twilight; I’ve heard all the hype and I just had to read it for myself. So far, I am loving it!
What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?
Poison Ink; started on Monday, completed yesterday.
Have you ever given up on a book half way in?
Not since I was in High School, but yes.
