The Literary Lollipop created this fun quiz about your book habits. She says “Feel free to cut and paste the questionnaire onto your own blogs, or if you would like to add a question, please do so! Did I miss anything? Let me know! Change it around or leave as is… it’s up to you.”
I broke this up, because 55 long winded answers from me in one go will probably make you want to go to sleep. So here is the third set.
21. What will inspire you to recommend a book? No idea! I recommend a book when I really enjoyed reading it. I simply assume that my blog readers (at least the ones that read the same genre) will like what I liked. Yes, I am self-centered that way.
22. Favourite genre: Historical detective novels, m/m fiction, occasionally straight romance
23. Genre you rarely read (but wish you did): There is no genre I wish I read. If I wished to read it I would.
24. Favourite Biography: I don’t read that many biographies but I loved Augustus: The Life of Rome’s First Emperor and Cicero: The Life and Times of Rome’s Greatest Politician, both by Anthony Everitt.
25. Have you ever read a self-help book? (And, was it actually helpful?) Yes, recently I read “Waiting for Jack” which was sort of helpful.
26. Favourite Cookbook: I don’t have a favourite cook book. I like them in general and pick recipes from all over the place.
27. Most inspirational book you’ve read this year (fiction or non-fiction): No idea again. If you mean spiritually enlightening, I don’t think I have read any. If anything, I plan to read “F**k it” soon, so that might be it.
28. Favourite reading snack: I don’t eat and read at the same time. I treasure my books, if they got soiled with food I’d go nuts. Just kidding! But – unlike some (and you know who you are) – I really don’t.
29. Name a case in which hype ruined your reading experience: Never happened. I don’t care for hype either way. However, there is hype that gets on my nerves big time, like for example the one about The Lost Symbol. I haven’t read it but I did predict its contents months before its publication date.
30. How often do you agree with the critics about a book? I never read what critics have to say about a book.
