A Book Meme

1. Do you prefer hardcover, paperback, or Kindle...and why? I read almost exclusively on my Nooks, it feels weird to hold a book

2. If I were to own a book shop I would call it ...
I don't have a clever name in mind, I'd like to think it's the type of thing that would almost name itself

3. My favorite quote from a book (mention the title) is ... “So much working, reading, thinking, living to do! A lifetime is not long enough.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

4. The author (alive or dead) I would love to have lunch with would be ... my answer has changed with my moods--today, I'll choose someone like JK Rowling or Stephen King

5. If I was going to a deserted island and could only bring one book, except for the SAS survival guide, it would be ... I'm going to cheat and take a book series with me (although, I don't know which series I would choose)

6. I would love someone to invent a bookish gadget that ... could let you choose which favorite books you could experience for the first time again

7. The smell of an old book reminds me of .... imagination

8. If I could be the lead character in a book (mention the title), it would be.... Trixie Belden--I loved that series!

10. I hate it when a book.... doesn't stay with me

Trixie Belden! I wonder if girls today still read her, like Nancy Drew.

I read some Trixie Belden books, but mostly I was a Nancy Drew girl. JK Rowling would be an interesting dinner companion, for sure.

Trixie beat the heck out of Nancy Drew! I think I'd pass on Stephen King. I don't like horror and something about him just gives me the creeps.

Yes! Someone else who hate Fifty Shades of Gray!

Paula said...

I'm glad I haven't bothered with Fifty Shades! It is getting a bad rap today!!
