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 fourth set.
31. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews? I don’t enjoy doing it but sometimes a book is so horrible that I can’t help it. I think I only wrote one truly bad review on this blog. Usually I always find something I liked.
32. If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you choose? Welsh, which I find fascinating from the looks of it.
33. Most intimidating book I’ve read: I don’t find books intimidating. I either want to read them or I don’t. Intimidation has nothing to do with it.
34. Most intimidating book I’m too nervous to begin: See question 33.
35. Favourite Poet: Probably Issa, but when it comes to Haiku I am not too choosy. Other than that I am not a great fan of poetry.
36. How many books do you usually have checked out from the library at any given time? Probably 6 or 7.
37. How often do you return books to the library unread? Since I usually get non-fiction but rather books about crafts, cooking etc. I don’t “read” them in the common sense but look through them and pick what I like. I usually look at all of them, so none go back unread.
38. Favourite fictional character: I have two. The one is Salvo Montalbano from Andrea Camilleri’s contemporary mystery series set in Sicily. The other is Marcus Valerius Corvinus from David Wishart’s mystery series set in Ancient Rome (and before you go on about it, yes, I know he is way too modern for an ancient Roman, but I love him anyway).
39. Favourite fictional villain: Jean Baptiste Grenouille from “Perfume” by Patrick Süsskind
40. Books I’m most likely to bring on vacation: That would be books I am most likely to read at any given time. I don’t differ between vacation reading and everyday reading.
