Questions from Paula

1.What are your most treasured books?
Hmm...That is a difficult question. I have so many that I love that is impossible to say. looking at our shelves though I would have to say Jane Eyre, Till We Have Faces, North & South, Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and probably at least a dozen more. There are so many that I love and enjoy. 
2.What books have you read more than once?
Can I include currently rereading? 
-Jane Eyre 
-Pride and Prejudice 
-North and South
-Percy Jackson and the Olympian series
-The Hunger Games series
-Angel on the Square
-The Chronicles of Narnia
-probably more

3.What’s your favorite bookstore?
um... I really prefer Barnes and Noble, although I do really like the little book stores that you come across here and there. 

4.Do you buy books online?
I personally have never purchased a book online, but I would say that I mother has bought books for the whole family online. So kind of. 

5.Do you stop reading books half way through?
I have. Most of the time though I finish them because I hate to leave things unfinished. 

6.What’s the last movie you watched?
uh....I mostly watch TV series so I am having trouble remembering the last movie I watched. I think the last thing I watched Despicable Me with my family.

7.What’s your favorite genre?
Of books or TV? If is is books then I would have to say historical fiction, novel, and fantasy. 
For TV, that is such a wide variety of things it would be a really long list. though Sci-Fi, and Period Dram appear to make up most of what I watch. Also most anything done by the BBC. 

8.In which movie/book would you like to live in?
I have pretty much thought about living in every book or movie I have ever seen, some more so than others, so this question is a really really difficult one. I really can't think of one I would like to live in more. 

9.Which character do you think has a great style?
Interesting. I have not really thought about that, and I have not really paid much attention to a characters style so I will just say what characters like best. 
If I go with strictly book characters, I am faced with a difficult problem, I am going to say Elinor Dashwood, she is sensible, kind, and knows how to behave herself. If I go with strictly movie characters....hmm. Daniel Jackson, he is smart, loves ancient history, and is a pretty nice guy. 

10.Do you go to the movies by yourself?
No, I have either gone with my family, or with the youth group at my church. 

11.In the movies: popcorn or no popcorn?
I don't really like popcorn. It can be messy, and sticks in my teeth. Also it can be expensive at the move theater.

  1. I loved reading your answers, Elizabeth! I'm super impressed that you are reading 7 books at the moment. I usually can't read more than two at a time!

    How interesting that you mentioned historical fiction as a favorite genre. I sure need to read more books in this genre. xx

    PS: I also love Narnia!
