FF and Book Blogger Hop



Question:

ACK! Your favorite book/movie character just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you provide visual stimulation.

Answer:

Oh it would be Evanna Lynch playing Luna Lovegood... I love her so much! She has been my favorite HP character since I read book 5, and I love her just as much in the movies. How could you not??


Book Blogger Hop

Question:

What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?

Answer:

I always give a book 100 pages to keep my interest before I set it down and mark it as a DNF. At that point if the main character(s) aren't doing anything to intrigue me, I'm done.

  5. I love your blog design!

    I've been using Nancy Pearl's rule. You must read the first 50 pages. If you are older than fifty, (I am not) you can subtract 1 page for every year. So, if you are 51, you only have to read 49 pages, 52 - 48, and so on.
    When you reach 100 years of age, you may judge a book by its cover.

    Lots of times I find that by page 50, I'm kind of into it, even if the book is not great.

  6. Luna is a good choice, I thought the actress they chose to play her did a great job! I try to stick with books and not stop reading, but once in a while I just have to give up and choose something more interesting!

  10. Hi! I'm Izzy, and I'm just stopping by your blog on the Blog Hop. I also follow the 100-page rule, although in some books, it's really hard to keep trudging. If I find the book completely unbearable to read to the point that I would rather sit in boredom than pick it up, then I let myself drop it ahead of time.

  11. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!
