I'm posting Jen's on the blog for her. Just to have it all in one place. :^)
Here are my answers:
1: Hardcover or paperback, and why?Paperback - unless I really like the author , have a collection of similar books in hardback or do not want to wait for the paperback
2: If I were to own a book shop, I would call it... Turn the Page
3: My favourite quote from a book (mention the title) This is horrible, but I cannot think of anything off the top of my head.....
4: The author (alive or deceased) I would love to have lunch with would be... Ayn Rand or Ferroll Sams
5:If I was going to a deserted island and could bring only one book, except for the SAS survival guide, it would be... Atlas Shrugged, Hands down!!!
6: I would love someone to invent a bookish gadget that... would hold the book open on the elliptical machine without breakign the spine or damaging the pages
7: The smell of an old book reminds me of... reading on the screened in porch at my grandparents' house in Pennsylvania
8: If I could be the lead character in a book (mention the title) it would be... Dagney Taggart from Atlas Shrugged (if you have not guessed, I am obsessed with this one)
9: The most overestimated book of all times is... The Confederacy of Dunces
10: I hate it when a book...wraps up too quickly (like A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe did!!!).
