Secondly, my friend Natalie, at Sweet South Blog, tagged me to answer this questionnaire. I loved her answers, so if you haven’t read her blog, please go and read her answers. Natalie, my book collection looks like thattoo. :) Brilliant!
So here goes with my answers to the following questions!
Have you talked to anyone in person about a book this week? I actually have. I seem to talk to people about books every week. :)
What book was it? It was actually several different books. A new mystery series that I discovered—I was asking someone’s opinion about it.
What are the two biggest emotional reactions you've gotten from a book or movie this year? Surprise is probably the best answer. That feeling you get when a character does something out of the ordinary—an event that you did not see coming. All of the twists and turns within the plot of a novel, that tend to drive you crazy at times, always seem to make the book more interesting somehow.
What are you reading right now? Ok, so I know it is not Christmas, but I have been reading from a collection of short stories that are in the book An Old Fashioned Christmas.
How many books have you read this year? I would say nine or ten.
What was the last flower mentioned in a book you read? Oh goodness, that is a hard question, but I remember tulips being mentioned in a particular scene.
If you could choose to travel to the setting of one of the last three books you read, which would you choose? Well, one of the last books I read took place in England. So, I think I would travel there. :)
If you could choose three living authors, to follow around for a day, who would you choose? Janette Oke, Lawana Blackwell, and Laura Childs
What about deceased authors? Jane Austen, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Dickens
If you could read only one fiction book for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Pride and Prejudice
