Booking Through Thursday - Meme
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! (My answers are in parenthesis.)
What was the last book you bought?
(Sunset by Karen Kingsbury--I must find out how the Baxters are doing.)
Name a book you have read MORE than once
(The Holy Bible and just recently, The Justice by Angela Hunt)
Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
(Yes, the Bible!)
How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews
(I look at the cover and read the blurb and title. Once in awhile, I read a book recommended by a friend or a reviewer. In addition, I have favorite authors I follow. )
Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
(I have always loved fiction best!)
What’s more important in a novel: beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
(The plot--the story--is the most important part.)
Most loved/memorable character (character/book)
(This is one of those questions that I will think on and reevaluate as the day wears on. Whenever I read a good book, I'm left with memories of characters, so there are many. I will mention the last memorable character--a ventriloquist's dummy, George.)
Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
(Rhapsody in Red by Donn Taylor is the book I currently reading. I start a book and keep at it until I've finished. I seldom read more than one at a time.)
What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?
(I finished by George by Wesley Stace on October 6th.)
Have you ever given up on a book half way in?
(Yes, just recently. It is so awful that I simply could not finish it. Obviously, I won't review that one!)
