"One book" From takatohedgehog's meme

Here be mine

1. One book that changed your life?
Anais Nin's Little Birds. The copy I first read was very old, yellowed pages and very fragile; it felt like a came across an old buried treasure. How very right I was. This is a time well before JKRowling. When I found Anais, that was my first moment as a bibliophile.

A moment when you first fell in love.

2. One book you have read more than once?

JKRowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. From the series, my favourite book would be Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, however, remember those trivia cards? Back in 2002, I could answer in essay length questions like 'what flavour of ice-cream did Harry have when he and Hagrid went to Diagon Alley?'

3. One book you would want on a desert island?

Perhaps something by Neil Gaiman. Either American Gods or Stardust.

4. One book that made you laugh?
I think I laughed the loudest when I had The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams.

5. One book that made you cry?

I don't remember one.

6. One book you wish had been written?

Perhaps something that would be about taking care of books like explaining what kind of paper would be stored best in what kind of environment.

7. One book you wish had never had been written?

No, sorry. I'm too much of a bibliophile to think that.

8. One book you are currently reading?
Nigel Cawthorne's Sex Lives of Composers. Riot of fun.

9. One book you have been meaning to read?
Sandman book of dreams. I got it ages ago even before I got the library. Now I may start it as I just finished the eleven books. Like I need to be rewarded.

  • Bookshelves!

    Well, my to-read books just go on the bookshelf with my already read books and my books that I don't really plan to read and I'm not sure why I…

    Hi there, folks. A question popped in my mind today while I was looking for something to read. See, I always buy books faster than I can read them,…
