[Booking Through Thursday] For a Friend

It’s been a while since I participated in Booking Through Thursday. This week’s (or rather, last) question is: If someone you know has just published a book—do you feel obliged to buy a copy? Even if it’s not the kind of book you’d normally read? This has happened to me before. A friend of mine […]

Booking Through Thursday: Fanfiction

What do you think of fanfiction? In general—do you think it’s a fun thing or a trespass on an author/producer’s world? And of course, obviously specific authors have very firm and very differing opinions about this, yet it’s getting more popular and more mainstream all the time. Do you ever read or write it yourself? […]

Booking Through Thursday: Anticipation

Booking Through Thursday: What’s the last book you were really EXCITED to read? And, were you excited about it in advance? Or did the excitement bloom while you were reading it? Are there any books you’re excited about right NOW? The last book I remember being very, very excited to read that I was ready […]

BTT: Coming Soon To A Theater Near You

Today’s BTT question is: If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?

BTT: Something Old, Something New

I haven’t participated in Booking Through Thursday for a long time! I’ve missed it, so here I am again. All other things being equal–do you prefer used books? Or new books? (The physical speciman, that is, not the title.) Does your preference differentiate between a standard kind of used book, and a pristine, leather-bound copy? […]

BTT: Mark the spot

Booking Through Thursday What items have you ever used as a bookmark? What is the most unusual item you’ve ever used or seen used? Here are a couple of bookmarks I’ve used. A – an erasing sheetB -A napkin holder made out of cardboard and ribbons. It was originally in a tube form but I […]

BTT: Weeding

Booking Through Thursday When’s the last time you weeded out your library? Been a while since I last answered this. Usually, I’m the first haha. 🙂 Hmm, I think it was some few months ago, when I was looking for books that I could add to my online store. I’ve moved around a bit in […]

BTT: TBR

Booking Through Thursday Follow-up to last week’s question: Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along? In times when I purchased more than one or two books at a time, the books […]
