Angie ☯ | 136 comments Welcome to Hours 20 & 21!

Congrats, if you are still with us at these hours! We're Angie & Karsyn and we'll be with you for these two hours. We're going to mix things up a little bit, we hope that you won't mind! Here's what we're asking of you these hours:

Hour 20: Bookish Theme
1 ~ Tell us the Title of the Book you are currently reading
2 ~ Post the last full sentence on page 22 / @ 22% of your current Book *
3 ~ Answer the question asked by the previous poster
4 ~ You ask a BOOKISH** question for the next poster

* Come back at the end of the 2 hours for a fun little surprise.

** Make sure you don't ask a question that has been asked already today. You can see what most questions are about by clicking Hourly Questions Thread. If you can't think of anything to ask, here are some suggestions:

Mel | 25 comments Hello hello, what a nice mix up!
I am currently reading Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann. The last sentence on page 22: haha there’s only a map :D I’ll take page 21 instead? “But knowing each of you as I do, I have no doubt you will rise to the challenge before us and get these civilians to the Heimdall waypoint alive.”
As for bookish questions.. writing in books: yay or nay?

1. The City of Dreaming Books
2. "Good or bad, Dancelot's efforts belonged to the reading public."
3. Writing in books? It all depends on whether you own the book and what you are writing. NEVER write in a book that is not yours, of course. I don't usually, but some books lend themselves to marginal notes.
4. What tempting-looking books have you come across so far during this readathon that you are adding to your TBR?

3. Since I work at a public library I think I get most of the books from there. But when I'm bying my own copies my favourite book shop is Scifi-bokhandeln (a book shop with main focus on sci fi, fantasy, comics and board games), and the last couple of yerars I have got most of my books from there.
4. What was your top read of last year?
