I forget now where I first saw this survey-meme, first created by Perpetual Page Turner , but nevertheless I have copy-pasted the questions, so this is it….
Author you’ve read the most books from:
Agatha Christie—I’ve been reading her books since my junior high school.
Best Sequel Ever:
Harry Potter….And the Chamber of Secret, I guess.
Moby Dick (Herman Melville)—and I enjoy it very much!
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Water or hot chocolate, hmmm…. :)
E-reader or Physical Book?
Both—e-reader is very helpful when reading books with difficult words, Shakespeare, for instance :D.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
It’s a tough question, because I have certainly changed a lot now, but maybe D’Artagnan would have been interesting for ‘me in High School’….
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Saint Joan by George Bernard Shaw. I first thought it would be flat and rather boring, but on the contrary, it’s interesting and sometimes witty.
Hidden Gem Book:
Winnetou by Karl May, I don’t think many readers know about this, or they might have heard about it without knowing how inspiring and touching it is.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Joining The Classics Club; since then on I’ve been learning more and more about classics literature; discussing them with the members; enjoying the readathon; and tons of other fun of reading classics.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Betty Smith). It’s quite entertaining although sometimes quite boring too.
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
Romance, horror, popular fantasy, and books that are attacking (in any ways) my faith.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
I think War and Peace is the longest so far.
Major book hangover because of:
L’Assommoir—it’s shocking, and I needed a few days before moving on to next book.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Only two….. *smile humbly*
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Can Tintin be called book? If not, perhaps Agatha Christie’s Curtain or And Then There Were None (I really forget how many times I’ve read them).
Preferred Place To Read:
Any place provides me silence and privacy.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“If there's just one kind of folks, why can't they get along with each other? If they're all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other?” ~To Kill A Mockingbird.
That I didn't read classics literature earlier. So now, I want to catch up by reading as much as I can.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
The Rougon-Macquart series by Emile Zola, so far I read only several of them, randomly. I plan to read all of it, and maybe someday I will re-read all in proper order, to get the big idea Zola wants to tell us.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Germinal, To Kill A Mockingbird, Curtain.
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Emile Zola! He’s genius, great story teller, and can always bring me on the edge of my emotion.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
The Sycamore Row by John Grisham. Although I don’t remember anything about A Time To Kill, anything from Grisham always tempt me to read!
Worst Bookish Habit:
Keep buying books though I know my mom would be complaining because there seem to be books in every room at our house… errr….except bathroom of course :D
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
I picked this from my ‘temporary-shelf’ at my office (LOL!), and the 27th is Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky; one of my most anticipated books!
Your latest book purchase:
Cicero: The Life and Times of Rome’s Greatest Politician by Anthony Everitt.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I read it two years ago, and during those days I often regretted in the morning that I must go to work, LOL!
