Prompted by a bumper-load of new books and the example of Monseigneur Rosbif, I thought I'd have a go at my Book A to Z.
- Author you've read the most books from:
The latest book he co-wrote "The Long War" is lying on my bedside table waiting to be finished but other books are far more attracting at the moment... Why is this? I don't know but it seems Pratchett's condition is seriously affecting his ability to build in layer upon layer upon layer of storylines and punes or plays on words ;-)
- Best sequel ever:
- Currently reading:
Part one of the Star Wars Dark Nest trilogy, as well as Pratchett's The Long War as well as From Eylau to Friedlund.
- Drink of choice whilst reading:
- E-reader or physical book:
- Fictional character you would probably have dated in high school:
- Glad you gave this book a chance:
- Hidden book gem:
- Important moment in your book life:
- Just finished:
The Rebel Force, Star Wars series by Alex Wheeler
- Kind of book you won't read:
- Longest book you've read:
The Silmarillion surely felt like the longest book, but I gather I', supposed to count pages, well in that case it's probably the Dune series by Frank Herbert.
- Major book hangover because of disappointing endings:
- Number of bookcases you own:
- 2 of the same containing "Normal" books
- 1 of the same containing Youth books from when I was a small lad.
- One book you've read multiple times:
Do I need to explain? No I didn't think so. That said I have read almost all my Pratchetts several times as well and most of the Battletech books are up top their second read too. Yes I eat them!
- Preferred place to read:
- Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you've read:
The Last Continent, Pratchett, Doubleday
- Reading regret:
- Series you started and need to finish:
- Three of your all-time favourite books:
- "The Lord of the Rings"
- "Wyrd Sisters"
- "I am Jade Falcon!"
- Unapologetic fanboy for:
- Very excited for this release:
- Worst bookish habit:
- X marks the spot - Start at the top left of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book:
"Agincourt"by Juliet Barker, funny story this. As it happens I saw a documentary on Discovery or National Geographic about her work and she was telling a convincing story of her take on events in said battle. The book was at that time not available here in the Netherlands so when visiting London I went to Waterstones and there it was and down-priced as well. As it happens without noticing I bought a signed copy left over from a signing session she had done at this particular Waterstones store.
- Your latest book purchase:
See my post on the Crisis!
- Zzz snatcher book (the last book that kept you up waaay too late:)
Well that's my book-review
Listening to: Nothing, had to keep my wits to write the above ;-)
