I picked this book meme up from SciFiChick...

What are you reading right now?

Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that?


What magazines do you have in your bathroom right now?
none...

What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read?
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. It was a book club choice and it was long and boring...

What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone?
Right now it's Twilight by S.Meyer but I tell everyone to read Jasper Fforde too

Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they?

I hate going to the library because they always want their books back!

Is there a book you absolutely love, but for some reason, people never think it sounds interesting, or maybe they read it and don’t like it at all?

Sunshine by Robin McKinley. I simply adore this book and picked it for my reading group... they all hated it! But it is so good and Robin McKinley is such a fantastic author. I don't understand!
Do you read books while you eat? While you bathe? While you watch movies or TV? While you listen to music? While you’re on the computer? While you’re driving?
Like SciFiChick I read at long lights... or if someone else is driving me around. I do read at the movies but only before the lights go out and the movie starts. I don't while I listen to music or while I'm on the computer... but sometimes while I eat.

When you were little, did other children tease you about your reading habits?
Yes and the glasses didn't help any.

What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling.

I'm just glad you liked it! I love getting to share books that I adore. :) And it's just so good! You'll have to tell me when you read New Moon.

MiniJonB, I used to do that too! I would copy the pages on my favorite animals... so to this day I'm full of useless facts about hippos and horses...

ah...a meme someone would want to do, for a change!

It's strange that you read in movie halls! i'd get distracted by number of people dug into their cellphones!

Over the weekend me and my love went to see Stardust and we got there really earlier and both pulled out books to read. We do that at resturants also. Here I thought we only did it at movies :)
