Okay, saw this over at J. Kaye’s Book Blog and thought I'd give it a whirl. J. Kaye had shortened her list of questions (original can be found at Psychotic State ) so I did the same:
1. What author do you own the most books by?
Anne McCaffrey, Preston & Childs, and Terry Brooks
2. What book do you own the most copies of?
The Five Love Languages – we loan those out to people all the time and I think we still have three on the shelf.
3. What fictional character are you secretly in love with?
Would it be really wrong if I said Matt from Book II of my series? Would it?
4. What book have you read more than any other?
Watership Down - probably a hundred times
5. What was your favorite book when you were 10 years old?
Watership Down - which is probably why I read it so much!
6. What is the worst book you've read in the past year?
The Heart of Marketing – it got such great reviews, but I thought it was awful! No meat or details, all mental fluff.
7. What is the best book you've read in the past year?
Calling All Authors by Valerie Connelly (Yeah, I read a lot of marketing stuff, don’t I?)
8. If you could tell everyone you tagged to read one book, what would it be?If you've never read The Five Love Languages, then it’s a must! Greatest relationship book ever.
9. What is the most difficult book you've ever read?
Lovecraft is challenging due to his style and the differences in language from 70-80 years ago, but I love his books!
Challenging in a bad way was Old Man and the Sea. BORING!!!!
10. Short Story?
The Mound by Lovecraft – gosh that SO needs to be a movie!
Life is Tremendous! by Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
12. Science Fiction?
The White Dragon by Anne McCaffrey
13. Who is the most overrated writer alive today?
Besides Stephen King? (Still wonder what childhood trauma he suffered that was so bad it shows up in every novel.) Starting to think Stephanie Meyer is overrated too…
14. Best history?
Twelve Days of Terror- true account of the famous 1916 New Jersey shark attacks. (I really dig sharks.)
I won't tag anyone - feel free to tackle this on your own!
