4. Bad book habit? Maybe having stacks of them all over my whole room.
5. What do you currently have checked out at the library? Nothing.
6. Do you have an e-reader? Yes. I read on my iPhone kindle quite a bit.
7. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once? It depends. Right now I’m reading different things for various reasons, but when I’m just reading for fun, only one.
8. Have your reading habits changed since starting a blog? Not because of my blog, except for a short time when I got free books in exchange for reviews. I would like to do more reviews this year.
9. Least favourite book you read this year? I’ve liked them all.
10. Favorite book you’ve read this year? I really am enjoying Proverbs. And I’m looking forward to reading Ken Ham’s book, Six Days, which he gave me for Christmas. Wow. I totally sound so good and mature with these books I’m naming, aren’t I? In reality, I love reading kids books still, as well as fun, fictional books for my age. 🙂
11. How often do you read out of your comfort zone? Out of my comfort zone? As in bad stuff? I try not to. As in, stretching for me as a person? It’s getting to be fairly often.
12. What is your reading comfort zone? I really enjoy fictional books with character-driven plots. Take Over The Divide for instance. Historical fiction is also a favorite, as well as self-development/success books such as All You Can Do is All You Can Do. And of course AiG books.
13. Can you read in the car? You mean, it’s possible to do something other than reading in the car? 🙂
14. Favorite place to read? It depends. I like reading while laying out on the porch on summer nights. Also, my bed is a fun place to read because it’s high up and kinda feels like a club house.
15. What is your policy on book lending? I don’t think I have one.
16. Do you ever dog-ear books? Yep.
17. Do you ever write in the margins of your books? Yep. Rarely though.
18. Not even with text books? No, not in them, actually.
19. What is your favourite language to read in? One I can understand. And that would be English.
20. What makes you love a book? Characters that I can relate to. People that make me cry. A beautiful story that teaches me and helps me grow. Words that get repeated over and over again in my mind. One that is funny and clean. And I really, really, really like sweet stories.
21. What will inspire you to recommend a book? Most of those^ things.
22. Favorite genre? I used to always say Historical fiction. Is Sweetness a genre? Let’s just say it is. 😉
23. Genre you rarely read (but wish you did)? But wish I did? More recently written, modern kids books. I just don’t know of many good ones, but I kinda should be reading them (if I can find good ones) because that’s what I write.
25. Have you ever read a self-help book? All the time. You just have to be careful what author you read, because a lot of them have weird ideas.
26. Favourite cookbook? I’m not sure.
27. Most inspirational book you’ve read this year (fiction or non-fiction)? It’s only the 10th day of the year. Ask me in six months. 🙂
29. Name a case in which hype ruined your reading experience. Never.
30. How often do you agree with critics about a book? Critics? I don’t really pay attention, I guess.
31. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews? As long as the review is written nicely and gives an out (such as, ‘this isn’t my style’ or ‘I know some people would enjoy it’) then I don’t mind being negative, as long as I’m kind and not overboard on the negativity. I think it helps readers know what they are getting. (In reality, I’m probably not very negative, but anything other than gushing feels negative to me.)
32. If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you chose? Pig Latin? No, um, maybe one of the original languages of the Bible? I don’t know. Braille, if it counts.
35. Favorite Poet? Sarah. 😉
36. How many books do you usually have checked out of the library at any given time? If I go, which I hardly ever do, then maybe around 15-20.
37. How often have you returned books to the library unread? If I get one that turns out being bad, or if I get uber-busy. Other than that I read most of them.
38. Favorite fictional character? I have a very soft spot in my heart for Jacy. Although pretty much all of Mrs. Farnes characters make me feel all squishy and family-like.
39. Favourite fictional villain? I don’t read many books with a villain, villain in them.
41. The longest I’ve gone without reading. I have no clue.
42. Name a book that you could/would not finish. There are plenty (read that hundreds) of books that I’ve stopped because they went in a direction I wasn’t comfortable with. I hate it when that happens.
43. What distracts you easily when you’re reading? I don’t get easily distracted when reading a good book. 😉
44. Favorite film adaptation of a novel? I don’t watch many movies. The Ultimate Gift was pretty great as a movie though. (Note: I’m not endorsing this, just saying I liked it.)
45. Most disappointing film adaptation? Again, I don’t watch many movies. 😉
46. The most money I’ve ever spent in the bookstore at one time? I don’t know. Maybe $50.
47. How often do you skim a book before reading it? Only when I’m trying to figure out if it will be a clean, good read.
49. Do you like to keep your books organized? I’m not sure I know what that word means. (See below)
