Book Meme

I’ve seen this on a few blogs and thought it might be fun:
1. What author do you own the most books by? Well, that would probably be Eric Carle or Dr. Seuss.

2. What book do you own the most copies of? The Bible. Big ones and little ones. Different versions. Hardcover and soft. They add up but all the same book.

3. Did it bother you that both those questions ended with prepositions? Kindof, yes.

4. What fictional character are you secretly in love with? Mr. Darcy.

5. What book have you read the most times in your life? For myself, Pride & Prejudice; For my children, Animals Animals or Dragons Dragons by Eric Carle or Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss.

6. Favorite book as a ten year old? The Chronicles of Narnia Series

7. What is the worst book you’ve read in the past year? I honestly didn’t read a bad one but I had started reading Joseph of Nazareth by Federico Suarez and hated it. I just don’t like taking the fact that Joseph didn’t have any words recorded in the Gospel and running with that that he must have been the silent independent type and writing a whole chapter about what he might have been like.

8. What is the best book you’ve read in the past year? Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz

9. If you could force everyone you know to read one book, what would it be? The Diary of Saint Faustina – long but well worth it.

10. What book would you most like to see made into a movie? The Little House Books – but they better be true to the books!

11. What is the most difficult book you’ve ever read? Hegel’s Philosophy of Spirit – don’t think I understood 2 words in the thing.

12. What is your favorite book? Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

13. Play? Hamlet by Shakespeare

14. Poem? Robert Frost’s Stopping By Woods

15. Essay? Don’t Know.

16. Who is the most overrated writer alive today? Dan Brown. Enough said.

17. What is your desert island book? Practically – something about how to get off a desert island; Otherwise, have to say the Bible.

18. And . . . what are you reading right now?
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
