Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
Hmm, not that I can remember.
How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews
I choose by either author, book group read, browsing by subject, and of course recommendations from other bloggers.
Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
Fiction but I have developed a fondness for biographies and books on animation.
What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
Ooh, can I pick both? Well if I'm picking one it would have to be a gripping plot because a book can have the most beautiful writing in the world and if I don't like it, I'm not going to read it.
Most loved/memorable character (character/book)
Pooh Bear! There are others but that's the only one popping into my head.
Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
Child Star by Shirley Temple, Glass Houses by Rachel Caine, The Ghost and Mrs. McClure by Alice Kimberly, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Faery Reel anthology edited by Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling and those are just the ones on top that I mean to read sometime this month (my nightstand tables are mini bookcases)
What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?
I read The Witches by Roald Dahl yesterday
Have you ever given up on a book half way in?
Yes. It's been awhile since I did. It was with Elizabeth Kostov's The Historian. Poor hubby actually bought it for me when it first came out.
