Here are Nya’s questions
01. What is your favorite childhood book?
I can’t pick just one. My favorite childhood book when I was very young was Goodnight, Moon. When I got a little older and was able to read myself, I loved the Ramona books and Nancy Drew. Island of the Blue Dolphins was an early favorite as well.
02. E-books or printed books?
I prefer ebooks over printed books, then paperback over hardcover. Ebooks are cheaper (than hardcovers anyway – and they usually come out at the same time) and don’t create clutter in my house. I read ebooks faster, which means I can read more books. I don’t keep most books after I’ve read them, so I don’t have to figure out what to do with them when I’m done. I can just delete them from my Kindle.
03. What is your favorite place to read?
I usually read at work on my breaks, but when I’m at home and have quiet time, I prefer to read either in “my” chair. Lately I’ve been reading while lying on the couch. One of my cats likes to nap on my lap when I do that. But I usually fall asleep too, so reading in my chair is better, really.
04. Is there any genre you would never read?
Probably hard science fiction. I’m iffy on sci-fi/fantasy anyway, so anything too technical or sciencey just doesn’t interest me.
05. What’s your review rating system?
1 is for DNFs and it goes up from there. I do use half stars on the blog and round down for Goodreads. It’s just a general system. I’ve given books x stars before and then I’ll be going through Goodreads and see that I gave another book I didn’t like nearly as much the same stars. I feel bad sometimes, but I don’t change it unless I reread the book (very rare) and have a different opinion.
06. What is your favorite fictional character?
07. What was the best film adaption of a book?
I don’t know about best, but I really liked The Virgin Suicides. I’m not a big movie-watcher, so I don’t have that much experience with this. The book is usually better, but if I see the movie first, I usually won’t read the book. Yes, it’s probably better. I don’t care.
08. How do you chose the next book to read?
In general I go by release date for ARCs and due date for library books. For other books, I just pick whatever looks good at the time. This is a limitation of ebooks. It’s hard to see the choices all at once.
09. Top 3 authors?
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Ginger Scott, and Nora Roberts/JD Robb
10. Is there any book release you are particularly looking forward to?
This is going to sound bad, but no. At the beginning of the year, I knew what was coming up until about May or June. Then I went into my blogging slump and hiatus and I have not caught up yet. I’m trying (trying) to stay off Netgalley and Edelweiss until I catch up with the already overdue ARC reviews so I basically have no idea what’s coming out for the rest of 2015. I won’t even start thinking about 2016 until it’s time for those end-of-year-wrapups/beginning-of-new-year-looking-forward-to memes and posts.
I know a lot of people don’t do awards and I don’t know who does, so I’m going to skip nominating and creating ten more questions.
