- What are you reading right now?
I'm in between books, actually, but the last book I read was Orson Scott Card's Magic Street and the next one up is Isaac Asimov's Nemesis.
- Longest book you’ve ever read:
Probably The Lord of the Rings, if one considers that one book... and the edition I have is only one volume.
- Strangest title of a book that you’ve read:
Crewel Lye: A Caustic Yarn of Unkind Untruth, which was one of the Xanth books by Piers Anthony.
- Stupidest ending of a book you’ve read:
Ooh. That's a rough one. I can't really think of an outright stupid ending that I've read recently.
- Which literary character have you related to the most?
Oolon Coluphid, the philosophy author in Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Or Ford Prefect from the same book.
- Do you prefer fiction or nonfiction? Fiction.
- Did you have a series of children’s/young adult books that you once enjoyed?
Most Roald Dahl.
- Can you enjoy reading the source book after seeing the screen adaptation?
- Have you ever read a novelization of a movie or TV show?
- Book that "turned you on" the most, erotically speaking:
That's a rough one. I guess Maia by Richard Adams, although I couldn't tell you why.
- Is there a real-life person that you’ve read more than one book about?
Richard Francis Burton.
- Book that everyone’s read but you:
Um... probably that Judy Blume book that everybody was giggling over back in grade school...
- Favorite "classic" writer/novelist:
- Favorite contemporary novelist (let's say 1950's on):
Orson Scott Card.
- Favorite short story writer:
I would say that Asimov probably fits this bill; and I believe that the Foundation books qualify as a series of short stories.
- Favorite columnist/journalistic writer:
I don't read the press anymore.
- Favorite poet:
- Favorite guilty pleasure book or series:
I don't really have one, mostly because I don't feel guilty about reading anything. If they don't like it, screw them.
- Favorite book written by a famous actor or musician:
None for me.
- Author whose work you once enjoyed but no longer do:
The aforementioned Piers Anthony. The books eventually descended into pun hell. And I like puns.
- Favorite comics/graphic fiction author:
Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman.
Well, they've fixed the EC problem with the laptops, so now we have access once again. I'm shocked that it only took them three days to do it. I also started pestering Frank about getting me another air card to replace the one that was crushed by a bus before I even had the chance to install the damn thing. I'm eager to get it as it means internet access wherever there is a Verizon wireless signal. I can't wait to go to the park and relax under a tree and blog.
