20 Questions: Books Edition
I was “tagged” by Jane Ridgewood in a 20 booky questions.
01. How many books is too many books in a book series?
That depends upon the quality of the series. If there is a well written series with an in depth world and well written characters I fall in love with, then there is no upper limit.
But, if it’s not something I can really get in to, or can’t care about the characters and/or story, then one is enough.
02. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
Hate them… Because I want to know what happens. But that doesn’t mean I won’t write them or read things because of them. I REALLY hate them when I’m running late for something but I can’t put a book down because I NEED to know what happens next.
03. Hardcopy or paperback?
I like paperback because they usually fit in my bag easier. I like the larger paperback than the smaller ones. Hardcovers are good for signing and bookshelves.
04. Favorite book?
The one I’m reading. Seriously, whatever book I am currently in to at any given time is my favorite.
05. Least favorite book?
I have no idea. I don’t read things I don’t like. The last book I couldn’t finish was The Alienist, which wasn’t bad… Just not something I could get invested in.
06. Love triangles, yes or no?
I haven’t really read anything with a love triangle, so I have no real opinion.
07. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
Michael Crichton’s ‘Dragon Teeth’.
It’s not bad or anything, I just havent had time to get through it and I keep choosing other books over it.
08. A book you’re currently reading?
I literally finished a book about 2 hours before I started this. I just finished Off to be the Wizard
by Scott Meyer. I am about to start Pines
by Blake Crouch.
09. Last book you recommended to someone?
Both Off to be the Wizard
were recommended to me.
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
I have no idea. I don’t really check publication dates. Probably a classic, like the Jungle Book
or Alice in Wonderland.
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
I’m not sure? Again, don’t really check publication dates. But I know I was waiting for the 6th book of The Expanse
series which came out last November. So, either that or Dragon Teeth.
12. Favorite author?
I like a few… Peter Clines, Earnest Cline, Andy Weir, Scott Meyer, Michael Crichton, and Dennis E. Taylor all jump to mind.
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
I can’t borrow books. I feel pressured with them.
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seem to love?
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Bookmarks. As much as I love the ‘well read’ look on books, I won’t artificially age them.
16. A book you can always reread?
I’ve already read Ready Player One
a few times. I could also reread The Expanse
17. Can you read while hearing music?
Sure. I used to read in nightclubs while my friends danced.
18. One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
Either or. It’s fun getting different perspectives of the same story.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I am a very slow reader, so it’s generally a few weeks.
I’m just going to ditto the previous poster of this and say: Everyone who’s read this far.
