Booking Through Thursday: Book Meme


Today's questions:

What was the last book you bought?

Um, no idea. Oh, I guess Free-Range Knitter. I pre-ordered it months ago but I guess I technically bought it when it was shipped.

Name a book you have read MORE than once

Just one? Anne of Green Gables.

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

Oh, probably lots of them... I'll go with An Acceptable Time.

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

All of the above.

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Either? Both? Depends on my mood.

What's more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?

If I had to pick, I guess plot. But really, I read for characters.

Most loved/memorable character (character/book)

I cannot possibly pick just one. The others' feelings would be hurt.

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

I'm not home, so I can't check, but I think the following are literally on my nightstand:
Free-Range Knitter
Taking Charge of Your Fertility
The Catholic Study Bible
The Catechism of the Catholic Church
Christian Prayer: The Liturgy of the Hours
Set-Apart Femininity
Cheating at Solitaire
And I feel like I'm forgetting something. Hmm. Oh well. And if this was supposed to be "What are you currently reading?" we need to add The Liberal Hour because that's the one I'm actually carrying around in my work bag.

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

The last one I actually finished was God's Harvard, in late September.

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

Oh, yes, lots. Well, I tend to give up within the first 50 pages if I'm going to give up.

I recently changed and no longer read books that don't grab me.

I can't believe I forgot about Anne of Green Gables. One of my favorite books. In fact I recently downloaded Budge Wilson's Before Green Gables from the library.
