Are you a bookworm? –I was a very big bookworm when I was at school. I read books in the bus, in the car (my parents drove ofc) , in bed, at the beach..every free moment I had my head was stuck in a book haha. When we had book assignments for school I was always eager to start reading.
Which do you prefer: hardcover, paperback or electronic? – I prefer paperback as I read mostly when I travel or before going to bed it's easier to fold the cover back. I haven't tried electronic yet and I'm not eager to try it either..I love the smell of a good old book better.
Which book is your favorite? – Bram Stoker's Dracula from 1897.
Which children’s book is your favorite? – Matilda from Roald Dahl.
What’s the last book you’ve read? – The book I'm reading at the moment is "Untamed - A house of night - novel 4" by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast.
The picture I used for this meme is a reference to the main character, Zoey, as I imagine her.
Name your top five favorite writers: –This is a hard one as I don't tend to read books from a certain writer but I would say Bram Stoker, Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling, Patrick Süskind and J.R.R. Tolkien. This is more about the stories they wrote then about there skills as a writer itself.
Name a book that had a strong impact on you: – The diary of a young girl (Anne Frank)
Favorite & least favorite book genres? –I'm a huge fan of fantasy and more particularly of vampire stories. I don't really dislike a specific book genre as I think every genre must have something I would probably like reading if it's well written.
Favorite & least favorite book-to-movie adaptions? – Worst movie adaption I must say that is Harry Potter for me. The movies are such a deception when you have read the books. I know it's impossible to show everything that is written in the books but still I think very important and interesting chapters have been left out and so I prefer the books over the movies. And for my favorite book-to-movie adaption I choose Lord Of The Rings. Just love those movies and could watch them over and over again and still be amazed by it.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover alone? – I actually do that all the time. As I said earlier I don't go buy a book cause of a certain author but more for the story and if it has a cover which is a bit Gothic, dark with a moon and maybe fangs I buy it hahaha
Where do you usually buy your books? –A bookstore. Doesn't matter if it's new or second hands.
Do you go to the library? – When I was at school I went to the library weekly. Now I finished school and moved around a lot I would not even know where to find a library and how they work over here.
If you were to write a book about Second Life, which topic would you focus on?
How many books do you own? –Since I moved a lot they are a bit spread over my parents house, my parents in law house and my new place. I would love to gather them all one day and fill a bookcase with it but it's gonna be quiet expensive to transport them while traveling by plain. I must have around 60 or so..really hard to tel the exact number.
How to protect yourself from the dangers of a virtual world. I think it would be an interesting topic.Skin
