Name a book you have read MORE than onceThe Dark Tower Series by Stephen King
Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?I think that every thing you read changes some part of your world view, even if it does not have a major impact upon you. Even if a person does not realize it at the time, every new piece of knowledge will alter their previous thoughts. So perhaps it wouldn’t change the way I see life, but it would surely change my understanding of certain things.
How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviewsAll of the above.
Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?I like both fiction and non-fiction, but fiction is always my comfort reading.
What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?Not necessarily beautiful writing but skilled writing. Without a good writer, the very best plots can become tiresome.
Most loved/memorable character (character/book)There are so many, but to be fair to both sexes the first two that pop into my mind are Alice from Wonderland and Iago from Othello.
Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?I have way too many books going at the moment, but the ones I am closest to finishing are Will Storr VS The Supernatural and Low Man by TJ Vargo.
What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?I finished Ghost In The Mirror by Leslie Rule last night before bed.
Have you ever given up on a book half way in?Sure have, the most recent being Tolkein’s The Silmarillion.
