(answer here)

Name a book you have read MORE than once

(answer here)

Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?

(answer here)

How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews

(answer here)

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?

(answer here)

What’s more important in a novel – beautiful writing or a gripping plot?

(answer here)

Most loved/memorable character (character/book)

(answer here)

Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?

(answer here)

What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?

(answer here)

Have you ever given up on a book half way in?

(answer here)

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
