Booking Through Thursday - Book Meme
What was the last book you bought?
The last book I bought was Elizbeth Gaskell's North And South.
Name a book you have read MORE than once.
I have lots! Just to name a few: Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery and Home In Mitford by Jan Karon.
Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
No, I don't think so.
How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews.
I use all of those. But mostly recommendations and reviews.
Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
Definitely fiction. But I am trying to read more non-fiction.
What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
I think they are both important. That being said, if the plot isn't intersting it doesn't matter how beautiful the writing is, it will bore me.
Most loved/memorable character (character/book)
Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables.
Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
Too many! I have Flower Net by Lisa See and Seduction of a Proper Gentleman by Victoria Alexander.
What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?
I just finished reading Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain.
Have you ever given up on a book half way in?
Oh yes! All the time. My time is precious, I rather read books that I enjoy than reading something that I'm struggling with.
You can join the fun here!
