Linda has tagged me with this book meme....can't imagine why.
Anyways, I have given this some thought and here's my answers.....
1: Hardcover or paperback, and why?
I prefer hardcovers because I find that they travel well, and they're
easier on my eyes to read, and they stay open on the page by themselves
most of the time. But I do buy paperbacks too because not all books
come out in hardcover, and sometimes I don't want to pay full price for a
light bit of fluff that may or may not be a keeper.
2: If I were to own a book shop, I would call it…
Judy's Books - Go Get Your Own!!!!
3: My favourite quote from a book (mention the title).
I'm too brain strained to remember quotes from books.
4: The author (alive or deceased) I would love to have lunch with would be…
Marie Killilea (Karen / With Love From Karen)
or C.S. Lewis (Narnia series)
or Sharon Kay Penman (The Sunne in Splendor)
or Jacqueline Carey (Kushiels Dart etc)
5:If I was going to a deserted island and could bring only one book, except for the SAS survival guide, it would be…
The Time Traveler's Wife (Audrey Niffenegger)
6: I would love someone to invent a bookish gadget that…
Would hold the book for me, turn the pages, and hold the book
open while I read. Oh, and provided perfect lighting for reading.
7: The smell of an old book reminds me of…
My father - who read to me, told me stories, and nurtured and
encouraged my love of reading.
8: If I could be the lead character in a book (mention the title) it would be…
Phedre no Delaunay (Kushiel's Dart, Kushiels Chosen, Kushiels Avatar)
9: The most overestimated book of all times is…
hmmmmmmmmm. Don't know off hand. I haven't met a book that
didn't give me some enjoyment or teach me something. I'm pretty
forgiving that way. Oh, can't say that I've been able to get into
anything by the Bronte sisters. Probably me. I'll try again someday.
10: I hate it when a book…
Is too short. Ends too abruptly. Gets preachy.
I also hate when a much loved book ends. I want it to
go on forever. And I hate when an author doesn't know
when to end a series.
