These are some great questions for readers to ask themselves. They make you think about what you have read. For the the answers are:
1 – I don’t really remember, I read a lot of books when in elementary school
2 – I have so many it is hard to narrow it down to just one, or even one series of books. Trilogy of the Rings, Lost Fleet, Sherlock Holmes, Honor Harrington, the Black Company . . . I could easily name more.
3 – Same problem here. David Weber, Sir Author Conan Doyle, David Drake, Michael Crichton, Glen Cook, Arthur C. Clark, Tom Clancy . . . the more I think about it the more authors I want to add to my favorites.
4 – It would have to be a large tea party. I’m not sure If I could pick just one
5 – Ditto
6 – I don’t have a favorite place to read. I find myself reading in a variety of places whenever the opportunity presents itself.
7 – I do like Honor Harrington, but also Sherlock Holmes. Then there is Bilbo Baggins. Again, too long a list for me.
8 – I think I would like the universe of Honor Harrington or Star Trek, but there are others I like as well.
9 – compulsory reading – not sure any specific book should be compulsory, rather it should be compulsory to read something. Not everyone’s tastes are the same, but reading should be encouraged.
10 – At the moment I am reading “The Big Brush-off” a Mystery by Michael Murphy.
You should think about these questions and how you might answer them.
– THE TEN QUESTIONS –
1. What’s the first book you remember reading by yourself?
It probably wasn’t Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, but it’s the first one I remember, and it’s the first book I read that really, really, caught my imagination.
2. What’s your favourite book?
The Hobbit, it’s short, it’s simple, it’s an easy read with great imagery. Some of the scenes in this book have really stuck in my head and stayed there.
3. Who is your favourite author?
Phillip Pullman. His His Dark Materials trilogy is great, it’s children’s literature that is complex enough to enjoy as an adult, I also think it was the first set of books I read that made me cry. Louise Erdrich is another favorite she is an Ojibwe writer who explores Native American characters and settings, without romanticising but with powerful great imagery.
