BTT – Book 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!

What was the last book you bought?

Sunrise by Karen Kingsbury

Name a book you have read MORE than once

Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?

The Bible

How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews

Summary, usually.

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Fiction

What’s more important in a novel – beautiful writing or a gripping plot?

Gripping plot.

Most loved/memorable character (character/book)

Anne from Anne of Green Gables

Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?

Ha! None, I don’t read in bed. However, next to my chair I have Two Years Before the Mast by Richard Henry Dana Jr.

What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?

The Quilter’s Kitchen by Jennifer Chiaverini, which may or may not count, since I didn’t read the recipes, just the little story blurbs that follow the book series’s characters. Before that was Sunrise by Karen Kingsbury.

Have you ever given up on a book half way in?

New Grub Street by George Gissing. It was awful. I was depressed by it, I found the worldview utterly hopeless, and I found myself dreading picking it up. I was trying to read it for a book club, but just plain couldn’t get through.
