Today’s Topic: Book 10 Questions
1. What’s the first book you remember reading?
Wow…this is really hard. I can’t really remember one specific book, but when I spent my summer days at my grandma’s house as a kid, I would always read the book “The Little Engine That Could”. I literally read that book a hundred times. If I go way back, I remember reading books like “Chika Chika Boom Boom” and “Goodnight Moon”.
2. Name a movie that you think was actually better than the book.
It’s very rare for me to like a book better than the movie, but I would have to say I enjoyed the film adaptation for “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory”(1971) way more than the book. I mean how can you not like Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka and upbeat songs about the pros and cons of indulging in too much candy?
3. You have to pick one format to read in the rest of your life (you can’t have both)—digital or paper?
Paper all the way!!!
4. Beach reading or mountain cabin reading?
I’m not a huge nature person or one for camping, so I would have to pick the beach. I love summer weather (when it isn’t extremely hot) and I like being by the seaside. Preferably a beach that’s not too crowded so I can get lost in my book without distractions.
5. Favorite punctuation mark?
ampersand = &
I like how fancy it looks.
6. Most annoying grammatical error?
Choppy sentences. It’s basically like Morse code with words on paper.
7. Book you’re most embarrassed to have never read?
I’ll admit I haven’t read a lot of the classics. I can’t think of one I’m super embarrassed to have not read, but to pick a couple: ” A Clockwork Orange”, “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings”, and “Fahrenheit 51”.
8. Book you’re most embarrassed to have read?
Probably some of the terribly written Harlequin romance stories I’ve read over the past years. It wasn’t even the fact that it was cheesy, but the plot was just all over the place.
9. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Night owl. I am NOT a morning person at all, considering it takes copious amounts of coffee just to get me going in the morning.
10. If you have kids, how much control do you want to have (or did you have) over what they read?
In the future, I don’t want to censor my kids reading and let them be free to read whatever they want to. Unless, its inappropriate for their age level, of course (explicit scenes, etc.). My mom was pretty lenient about letting me read what I wanted to growing up. She also exposed me to all types of children’s literature from elementary to middle school. I would be most content with my kids having a strong passion and love for reading.
