MeMe Time Again!

I wasn't nominated but itched to do this. Took it from A Fraternity of Dreamers.

1. Hardcover or paperback, and why?

I'm in the minority for paperbacks. I find hardbacks cumbersome to read. I always have to remove the flap and it's harder to hold right. Paperbacks don't wear as well but the bendability is convenient no matter which position you're in. I also love the looks of them on the shelves. Hardcovers are typically different sizes and never line up right.

2. If I were to own a book shop I would call it:

No clue but maybe the name of this blog would be cute?

3. Favorite quote from a book (mention the title) is....

I don't have a favorite quote really. Perhaps Christopher Pike's Whisper of Death description, always suited me well:

'I sit alone in a dead world. The wind blows hot and dry, and the dust gathers like particles of memory waiting to be swept away.'

Also, I can't remember the title, but a Dean Koontz had a quote that stood out a lot about 'mental crackers crumbling." I now use that when I can.

4. Author alive or deceased I would love to have lunch with would be....
I can't think of one for sure, there's plenty. One would be Graham Masterton, the man's great, Christopher Pike, VC Andrews, maybe even Laurell K. Hamilton before her last books.

5. If I was on a deserted island and could only bring one book, except from the SAS survival guide, it would be:

Hmmm, the bible. For fiction I guess Circus of the Damned by Laurell K Hamilton (off the top of my head) Can never get enough of that Jean-Claude.

6. I would love for someone to invent a bookish gadget that ....

This is easy. I want a pillow that turns into a chair like contraption when in bed. It hurts my back sitting up in bed, and pillows become annoying.I would like it to form the top of a chair. I've seen similar things online but pricey.

7. The smell of an old book reminds me of...

Just my love of books, it's invigorating.

8. If I could be the lead character in a book (mention the title), it would be:

Hmmmmmmm. Maybe Anita Blake so I could be near Jean-Claude in the earlier books :p

9. The most overestimated book of all times is:

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm. Not sure on that one. I thought Jaws by Peter Benchley was boring but I dont know if that counts.

10. I hate it when a book....

is melodramatic.
