I want to thank PoojaG at Lifesfinewhine for nominating me for this cool tag. Please check out the site, as how often can you say you’re chatting with someone in Kenya?
WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU MAKE EVERYONE READ?
The Philosopher’s Apprentice by James Morrow — at least the first section (about a third of the book). It has so much to say about life, it really changed the way I thought about things… and it’s fiction. I love the rest of the book, too, but the first third is amazing.
WHAT WOULD YOU ABOLISH IN BOOK CONSTRUCTION?
None. I believe in free speech and do not agree with banning or destroying books. I might give something a really bad recommendation, but it is still someone’s opinion or thoughts. For example, anything Hitler used to guide his beliefs is not something I would want anyone to read unless they were learning more about the horrific behavior he exhibited. But if someone read it to learn how to be a racist, then there is a problem.
WHAT AUTHOR WOULD YOU COMMISSION TO WRITE YOU ANY BOOK?
Kate Morton. I think she can tell my life story in a wonderful way. Possibly Ken Follett, but he uses a lot of words sometimes!
WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU DEMOTE TO THE LIBRARY BASEMENT TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEW BOOK?
The White Bone by Barbara Gowdy. Stay away!
WHAT COVER ARTIST WOULD YOU COMMISSION TO MAKE A MURAL?
To be honest, I am not familiar with this side of publishing, so I couldn’t be sure unless I did some research. I tend to like the covers of Follett’s books.
WHAT CHARACTER’S FACE WOULD YOU PUT ON A COIN?
Harry Potter. We’d all smile just a little bit more, wouldn’t we?
WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU AWARD THE “RULER OF BOOKS” 2016 PRIZE TO?
Of the books I read, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child seemed to be the most sought after before it was published
Of the books I read, The Nest got the most votes.
I disagree with both, but I can’t find another one more popular published in 2016 that I read in 2016.
