webcowgirl: (reading is fun-damental)
[personal profile] webcowgirl
I have been somewhat discouraged by the latest meme people have been doing, which I feel has questions that encourage gossip and stirring drama. This is of course not what we want to do online - we want to share information about ourselves. At least, that's what I'd like: and opportunity to learn about my friends and have them expand the horizons of my life. I'd like to encourage people to join in this book meme that [livejournal.com profile] robot_mel is doing. I am not going to be able to answer the questions due to brain fail for some things, but I'll do my best. Here's the meme so you can steal it. I will try to answer the questions myself starting this afternoon.

1. A fictional character you identify with and why
2. Your earliest memory of reading or being read to
3. Your favourite book aged 9 ½, or 13 ¾, whichever you remember best.
4. The book that’s been on your shelves the longest.
5. A book you acquired in some interesting way
6. A book with a story for you, that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time).
7. What fictional character are you (secretly) in love with
8. The last book you acquired, and how (begged, bought, borrowed?)
9. Your current read, your last read and the book you’ll read next.
10. What author do you own the most books by and why?
11. Do you own multiple copies of any book? What are they? Why do you have multiple copies?
12. Book borrowing – do you use the library? Do you prefer to try before you buy? What about lending your books to friends? Are you a good borrower, do you remember to return books?
13. Do you reread a lot? Why (not)? Name a book you have reread many times.
14. What is the best book you’ve read in the past year?
15. Do you recommend books to other people? If you could force everyone you know to read one book, what would it be?
16. Adaptation: What book would you most like to see made into a film? Do you like to read the book first or see the film? Any books you have read after seeing the film version?
17. What is the most difficult book you’ve ever read?
18. Your favourite book series & your favourite book out of that series
19. Your favourite picture, junior fiction and Young Adult books
20. Least favourite plot device employed by way too many books you actually enjoyed otherwise
21. A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
22. Your "comfort" book
23. Favourite book cover including a picture!
24. Favourite fictional relationship (romantic, friendship, familial)
25. Most annoying character ever
26. Most quotable novel or 5 of your favourite quotes from any books.
27. Any five books from your "to be read" stack. What makes you select a book for your “to be read” stack?
28. Some firsts: First book you remember loving/being obsessed with. First book that made you cry. First book you gave to someone else as a gift.
29. Saddest character death OR best/most satisfying character death (or both!)
30. The End: do you prefer everything tied up or to be able to 'make up your own mind'? What is the worst ending to a book you have read? And the best? (careful, spoiler tags!)

Glad your doing this and reading mine. I've had no comments so was wondering if it was a waste of time, but Bill said he liked it and is quite fun to do! :)

Hah! Just having a hard time commenting due in part to LJ being so unreliable but really enjoying your posts!

Thanks! That's good to know! LJ is quite broken these days! Hopefully the attacks will have stopped for now.

I will do it! And by that I mean I will remember to do it for about three days and then forget it exists. OH! I should do it on my actual blog thatineverwriteinooopsbadwriter...

So yes. I will do it.
