Booking Through Thursday

So here's something new I'm going to do. In truth, I'm just trying to get people to come read this blog so I figure if I participate in a few of these, they will. LOL But then, it's starting to be a lot of fun. A lot of time wasted sitting at the computer, but fun even so! This is called Booking Through Thursday:

What was the last book you bought?

Ender's Game

Name a book you have read MORE than once

Ender's Game LOL On my mind right now since I just finished it again.

Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?

Yes, The Fountainhead open my eyes to a whole world of things.

How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews

All of the above, though I generally start in one section of the store and work my way out into more general fiction

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?


What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?

gripping plot

Most loved/memorable character (character/book)

Astrid from White Oleander

Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?

Yarrow (never put it away after reading), and Ender's Game

What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?

Ender's Game, this past week

Have you ever given up on a book half way in?

Lately yes, I didn't used to do this. I would force myself to read it if I started but lately I just feel it's a waste of time. If I don't like it, I won't like it at the end.

Thanks, Tonya!!! It sucked pretty bad, but we knew it was coming. He was getting to be a real old man, I think. :0(.......... Hayley is lonely and a total velcro bird right now. OMG! I think we may have to get her a companion.

How are you?????
