The first Booksnakes Questionnaire

by rosalyster

(These were the questions I sent out a few weeks ago. PLEASE fill these in, if you would like to, and email them to booksnakess@gmail.com! Please note the hissy double s in the address.

Here is an answer I got last night:

  1. Which author would you like to be friends with?

“Edith Wharton if she weren’t such a reputed bitch. I think the fact that I can’t think of one reflects badly on me, and not on writers as a group.”)

Below, the questions!

  1. Do you read books over and over?
  2. If yes, which books?
  3. Who is your favourite heroine of fiction?
  4. Why?
  5. Who is your favourite hero of fiction?
  6. Why?
  7. Do you have any books that you would unhesitatingly recommend? Which ones?
  8. What is a book that you would recommend to a teenage boy?
  9. Teenage girl? It doesn’t matter if they don’t like reading. Let’s say that they get locked into a room until they’ve finished it.
  10. Have you ever had a book pressed on you that you cannot believe anyone thought you would like? For example, I have been told to read Murakami by at least ten different people, because they believe that I would love it, and they are sorely mistaken about that.
  11. Do you think it’s possible for a book to change a person’s life?
  12. Has a book ever made you cry? Which book?
  13. Have you abandoned books? Which ones?
  14. Do you have a list in your head of books where if someone says (x) is their favourite, you think less of that person? Not only “they are possibly not as smart as I thought”, but also “they are possibly evil”?
  15. Which author would you like to be friends with?
  16. Which author would you never like to meet?
  17. Which author do you feel certain would personally dislike you?
  18. Do you like it when a novel goes on and on about what people eat? Which is your favourite example of this type?
  19. Do you like it when a novel goes on and on about what people wear? Which is your favourite example of this type?
  20. What are you currently reading?
