As I love reading and love books and am on Goodreads I thought yes I'll do this. So without further ado:
1. What was the last book you marked as 'read'?
That would be 'Rock and Roll High School'
2.What are you currently reading?
Tea - A History of the Drink that Changed the World.
3. What was the last book you marked as 'to be read'?
None I don't tend to mark books as 'to be read' my teetering bedside book mountain is my 'to be read'.
4. What book do you plan to read next?
The two books that are side by side on the top of my two book deep bedside book mountain are
so it will be one of those. I'm trying to read the mountain in chronological order so those that have been there the longest first, however every now and then I get something new I just cannot wait to read and break my own rule!
5. Do you use the star rating system?
I do but it's really hard not having half points!Do you mark up or mark down??
6. Are you doing a 2014 Reading Challenge?
No but I have set myself the task of reading more this year. I never seem to get round to it these days and I miss it badly.Not working in a library any more has had a direct result on how much I'm no longer reading that is for sure.
7. Do you have a wish list?
Not on Goodreads but yes on Amazon!
8. What book do you plan to buy next?
I have no plans, there isn't anything I am champing at the bit for right now. If I read a review of something I like the sound of I'll file it away or make a note to look out for it, but I really am trying not to buy anything new when I have so much already waiting to be read.
9. Do you have any favourite quotes? Would you share a few?
The only one that I can think of off the top of my head is by PG Wodehouse, to set the scene some lord so and so had gone big game hunting and was posing for a photo with a lion
'Unfortunately no one had told the lion it was dead, a small battle ensued which the lion won'.
I do have a million and one Sherlock Holmes quotes but I won't get going on those!
10. Who are your favourite authors?
Oh gosh I have a wide range. I love Jane Austen, Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, Daphne Du Maurier. I also love Marian Keyes, Kate Morton, Kathy Reichs, Lisa Jewel, Rosamund Pilcher, Maeve Binchey, Bill Bryson I could go on and on.
11. Have you joined any groups.
Yes just a couple but I always find after the initial flurry of posting it dies away.
12. Are there any questions you would like to add?
What is your favourite ever book?
Mine is The Hound of the Baskervilles by Conan Doyle.
What books do you go back to again and again?
The books I go back to like old friends are The Lilac Bus by Maeve Binchey, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons and The Empty House by Rosamund Pilcher.
Guilty secret? I always revert to reading Enid Blyton, either The Famous Five or Malory Towers books when I am ill.
