Small Book Meme
My friend, Cath, put up a short book meme...I haven't seen a meme in forever so I guess I'll give it a shot!
1. What was your favorite book during childhood?
Hmmm, not an easy question because my memory sucks! To be honest the first books I really remember reading were Zane Grey books! (yeah cowboys, sheesh)
2.What is your favorite book now?
I'm not sure who made this meme but do they really expect ONE book title??!! Quite a number of books seem to stick with me. The Dragon Rider of Pern series are probably at the top. But many others I can't forget either, like Drood by Dan Simmons, and The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows, oh and my favorite Biography is called Stan and Ollie by Simon Louvish.
3. What is your favorite movie adaptation of a book?
Wow.. hard question. Maybe, To Kill a Mockingbird.
4. Do you prefer checking out books from the library or buying them?
Buying them. (mostly at thrift stores) I am not one for enjoying returning books, I feel the "pressure" of a time limit.
5. Have you ever been let down by a book that was highly recommended to you?
Not many recommendations come my way... but one I know I never read much of was The Time Travelers Wife. But it's certainly not the only book I never finished!
