My answers:

  1. I don’t have a specific place, as I can read anywhere. Mostly though, it would be in the living room or bedroom.
  2. Bookmarks. I have a lot of them, but can’t find them all the time, because I leave them in books, and I find them later. I usually just leave the book turned face down at whatever place I stopped at.
  3. Yes, I eat and drink while reading.
  4. If it’s daytime when I’m reading at home, the TV is usually on. If at night, it’s all quiet.
  5. At the moment it is one at a time, but usually I have several I’ve started. Each room will have a different one I can just pick up and read while in there.
  6. I’d rather read at home, but usually take a book, or ebook with me, so I can read when I’m somewhere that I have to be waiting.
  7. Silent, unless I’m reading to my grand-daughter.
  8. Sometimes I skip pages, if the part gets too long with descriptions, or is at a boring part. I like getting right to the action, and conversations best.
  9. If I own the book, I will break the spine first thing. I like the book to lay flat. It’s annoying to have to read in the center ditch.
  10. No, I don’t think I’ve ever written in a book. I will write in game type books, such as crosswords, jumbles, and pencil puzzle books. That’s all.
  11. I’m re-reading quite a lot of books about emotionally disturbed children, by the teachers, therapists, and parents that have helped them. The actual one I’m reading now, and almost finished with is, “A Child Called Noah”, by Josh Greenfeld.
  12. I’ve always loved books and reading, and we went to the library regularly when I was a kid. One book of my own, that I loved and memorized before I could even read was, “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”. In fact, I still have that original book.
  13. My all time favorite book? That’s hard to answer, as each one I read is my favorite at the time. I’d say my favorite by far is, “Lost Souls”, by Poppy Z. Brite. It’s a paranormal, horror novel about vampires. The characters are unforgettable. I base my ‘fan fiction’ story series, on my blog, on this book. I’ve read it many times since it first came out in 1992. Another favorite book is, “The Survival of Jan Little”, by John Man. It is about a woman who is blind, living in the Amazon jungle. I’ve read this one at least once a year, for many years.

  1. I adore “The survival of Jan Little”. What an incredible book that is! thanks for the shout out too. It is appreciated. Still having a slight problem with that breaking the spine part, but it’s YOUR book, not mine so I am trying to shut up about it…not doing too well, am I? LOL

    • You’re the only person I’ve heard of that has read the Jan Little book! It is definitely amazing what all she went through. haha- sorry about the book spine breaking…go ahead and fuss about it, I don’t mind. 🙂

  2. I also break the spines in my books, and throw away the jackets. Those things are annoying!
    Billy Goats Gruff is one of my faves, too. My father would do all the voices. Warm, happy memories 🙂

    • Finally, glad you know how it is! We like our books to be how we like them, no jackets, and broken spines. The more I like a book, the more it gets messed up. 🙂 That is a great memory, of your father reading books to you.
