Here are the questions that were set for me, and my answers…
1) If a book was written about your life, what would the title be?
The Lazy Bibliophile
2) What was the first book you can remember reading (or being read to you)?
I remember reading and loving the Mr Men books by Roger Hargreaves. My daughter now has the complete set too.
3) What’s your favourite genre of books?
I guess Contemporary Fiction would be the best way to describe it.
4) If you could choose one book to be turned into a movie adaptation, what would it be?
This is a tricky one, as film adaptations can so often be disappointing and I wouldn’t want to see a much-loved book ruined! But I would go for The Night Circus as I would love to see it translated to the big screen.
5) What’s your favourite reading format: Hardback, Paperback or E-book?
Although I dabble with ebooks, I am definitely a fan of paperbacks. I hate hardbacks as they are a pain to carry about and read on public transport, and they’re just not bendy enough!
6) Do you come from a family of readers, or are you the only one?
Just about everyone in my family is a reader, and I’m hoping to pass the habit on to my children too.
7) Have you asked for any books for Christmas? If so, which ones?
I asked for The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey which I read last year and loved. My copy was from the library so I wanted my very own. I also downloaded quite a few ebooks over the Christmas hols – a gift to myself!
8) Have you ever been to a book festival or author event?
I’ve been to a few author events, and I find it really interesting to hear what motivates and inspires writers.
9) Do you have a favourite bookshop you visit often? Maybe an indie in your hometown/city?
I do like this little shop near me, which is very friendly and ideal for bookish gifts!
10) Do you own any signed copies of books? If so, which ones?
Yes – How To Be Good by Nick Hornby. He is an Arsenal fan like me, and my husband went to one of his readings and asked Hornby to sign a copy for me. He wrote a football-inspired message for me 🙂
Here are my ten questions …
1. Did you make any New Year Resolutions, and if so what were they?
2. If you could only read one book in 2015, what would it be?
3. What book do you hate, that everyone else seems to like?
4. What is the one genre of book you least like?
5. If you could go anywhere in the world with one book, where would you go and what book would you take with you?
6. Where is your favourite place to read?
7. What is the one book you have never read, but really feel you should?
8. Where do you get your books from – your local bookshop, online, charity shop, library?
9. If you had to have a week without books, what would you fill that time with?
10. What book are you reading right now?
