Lindsay | 1327 comments 1 My favourite book as a child - Gemma (Armada Lions S.) by Noel Streatfeild Gemma. I have the 4 Gemma books in a box set and I read them over and over. I also loved Charlie And The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and The Little House Collection.

2 My favourite book now - Really? I can't even choose my favourite of the year. I love the Harry Potter series. This year I loved Artemis and listened to a fantastic audiobook Glass. Last year my favourite book was Be Frank With Me. In 2016 I couldn't choose between Yellow Star, Nagasaki, The Martian and Damocles. I am a hopeless case!

3 I will never remove Easy Connections from my bookshelf as it holds so many memories of high school and was the most checked out book from the local library.

4 I have read all of the Harry Potter series and listened to the audiobooks more times than I can count.

5 Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore kept me reading into the night. Most recently Our House was a book I couldn't put down.

6 I am looking forward most to The Starless Sea


Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
The Babysitters Club Books are the books that really got me into reading, but Jacob Have I Loved was my favorite book.

2. What is your favorite book now?
To Kill a Mockingbird has been my favorite book for a long time now.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
I have a rather large collection of Islamic Education Books written by scholars. As a Muslim in the West, it's hard to get accurate information on the internet, so these books are my go-to when it comes to understanding my religion.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, lol! With a sister 13 years younger than me, and four kids, I think I have this book memorized!

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
Thrillers! The last one was Gone Girl. I was exhausted all week.

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
Rebecca; I am taking a literature class this upcoming year, and that is the novel. I am very excited!

Rachael (allons-y-bookworm) | 3204 comments 1. My favourite book as a child was Matilda by Roald Dahl (the film is great too). I still enjoy this story now.
2. My current favourite book is Uprooted by Naomi Novik but this changes quite often as I find even more good books.
3. I would never remove Harry Potter or His Dark Materials from my bookshelf. I think these are the books that got me into reading and I have such fond memories about them.
4. The book I have read more often than any other is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling because I would always reread it before the next book was published.
5. A book that kept me up past my bedtime is Heartless by Marissa Meyer because I couldn't stop reading it, it was so good.
6. I am looking forward to Dark Age by Pierce Brown, which is the next book in the awesome Red Rising series, and also The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Eragon by Christopher Paolini which is a new book in a series I thought had finished years ago.

My favorite book as a child was The Outsiders. Although it's probably classed as YA nowadays, I first read it in the 4th grade.

My favorite book now? Oh my. Here are a few: Pride and Prejudice, Mrs. Dalloway, Swann's Way, A Tale for the Time Being, A Passage to India, The Secret Agent, Invisible Man.

Never to be removed from my shelves: All of Proust's In Search of Lost Time and Austen's novels.

As an adult, I've probably read Pride and Prejudice more than any other book.

Most recently, War and Peace, not because it was so compelling but more that I just wanted to be done. The end of that book is a real slog.

Hmm. I can't think of any one book I'm especially looking forward to at the moment.


message 6: by SarahKat, Buddy Reads (new)

SarahKat | 3074 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?

2. What is your favorite book now?
There are so many but probably A Song of Ice and Fire
3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
The above. I make notes every time I re-read them. Also, anything of my dad's.

message 7: by Kate (new)

Kate 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
As a young child I LOVED We're Going on a Bear Hunt. I think my parents still have it memorized. When I started reading more I remember really like Ella Enchanted or Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone of course. My mom and I also read Dealing with Dragons together which is a wonderful memory now.

2. What is your favorite book now? Hmmm I love The Night Circus or The Way of Kings was also very good this year. I feel like my reading tastes are shifting so books I really loved before are not hitting me as much now.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf? I have some complete works of Shakespeare and Complete Sherlock Holmes that were my grandparents. I think I'll keep those forever.

4. What book have your read more often than any other? Most likely Harry Potter. But I will say I read Agnes and the Hitman whenever I hit a slump so that one is probably up there too.

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime? The Way of Kings is the most recent one. Dang Sanderson Avalanche.

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading? Really looking forward to more Sanderson this year. I've heard tons of good about A Gentleman in Moscow. And looking forward to reading some Sherlock Holmes this coming year.

message 10: by Ziggy (new)

Ziggy | 996 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
We moved a lot when I was a child and I also struggled when reading. In the 4th grade, I got a new teacher who would read to us after every lunch. I loved the books and would go to the library and check them out and started to read on my own....my favorite A Wrinkle in Time. I have soft spot for the others she read: Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing Harriet the Spy From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. We moved 3/4th through the 4th grade, but that teacher was the person who got me hooked on books.

2. What is your favorite book now?
This is a hard question. Sometimes it takes a few months for me to realize how much I enjoyed a book and sometimes you read a book just at the right time in your life...some favorites The Count of Monte Cristo The Red Tent A Prayer for Owen Meany Lonesome Dove Watership Down The Lord of the Rings How Green Was My Valley

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
All of the books I listed above.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
A Wrinkle in Time From the ages 9 to 12, I would check this book out from the library and bring it back and check out different books. The next time we go back I check it back out again and repeat the process for over 3 years. It was always available not matter where we lived. Shortly after I turned 12 I went to a bookstore with my dad and he let me pick out a book for my own and of course this was the book.


5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
I honestly can’t remember but usually is a mystery book and I want to know who did it.

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
There are a lot of books I want to read. I have so many serious started, mostly looking forward to finishing some.


message 11: by Patch (new)

Patch 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
The Lightning Thief is the first book I remember being obsessed with when I was younger.

2. What is your favorite book now?
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. I only read it a few weeks ago, but I don't remember a book ever affecting me emotionally as much as this one. I couldn't put it down or focus on much else, I was so engrossed in the characters and their story.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I only own around 10 books (most of them either non-fiction or gifts) and this is the one that has stayed with me for years now and that I couldn't imagine letting go of.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
A Study in Steampunk: Choice of Gaslight is a choose your own adventure type of story that I've read countless times trying to find every possible outcome and rereading the parts I loved the most. It shaped my view on interactive fiction and fiction in general.

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
When Divergent was first released it kept me up until 8am and it's the only full-length novel that I remember reading in one sitting.

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Girl Made of Stars, If We Were Villains, Truly Devious, The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing and many more.

A fairly broad period, but at age 8 I read H.G. Wells' 'War of the Worlds', which changed my life in absolutely every way, so... good candidate.

2. What is your favorite book now?
'Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell' by Susanna Clarke. There's just nothing like it.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
'Why I Write' by George Orwell. Never be without a beloved book just big enough for a coat pocket.

4. What book have you read more often than any other?

6. The book I look forward to reading: all of them! Hard to choose.


RJ - Slayer of Trolls (hawk5391yahoocom) | 1017 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
I'm not sure I had one favorite. Once I discovered the Hardy Boys mysteries I read them all, followed by the Three Investigators, Encyclopedia Brown, Tom Swift, Boxcar Children, Nancy Drew, Bobbsey Twins, etc. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and A Wrinkle in Time were my introduction to SF/Fantasy books. In Jr High I enjoyed reading the Sword and Sorcery adventures of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser and Conan. High School brought more contemporary adventures like Jaws, The Odessa File and The Poseidon Adventure.

2. What is your favorite book now?
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
There's so many I would never part with, I won't bore you with the full list. If I had to name one I'd say The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
Either The Hobbit or 2001: A Space Odyssey.

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
When I was a child I would take a flashlight and book and hide them under my covers so I could read after bedtime. As an adult I remember Jurassic Park and Rising Sun being so captivating I didn't want to put them down until 3 or 4 in the morning. And The Amityville Horror kept me up even after I put it down hahaha!

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
The Terror by Dan Simmons

Kathy 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
I really enjoyed Judy Blume and Choose Your Own Adventure books--I can't remember many books when I was younger because I taught preschool and work with 4 yo now and I've read a lot of picture books.

Also board books by Sandra Boynton and the pigeon books by Mo Willems.

That idea really hits home. I feel I should do that, but I believe all of my beloved books are too big for pockets or purses. T_T


message 18: by Mary (new)

Mary | 13 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
I loved reading from the start! I especially remember the Nancy Drew mysteries and the Boxcar Children series. But as I got into my tweens and teens, I even remember reading The Catcher in the Rye for my brother's book report!

2. What is your favorite book now?
Ah, too many to name, in so many different genres. One of my favorites is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I often reread it and love Austen's wit. I also loved The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. But for romance books, I loved Virgin River by Robyn Carr, the first in the series. I read the whole series, but that first one is still the best!

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf? Probably a collection of poems by Emily Dickinson or Sylvia Plath.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
Friend-Zoned by Belle Aurora, a romantic comedy.

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
Most books because I don't get to read until later in the evenings.

Light Novels, Vol. 1 (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Light Novels, #1) by Fujino Ōmori The Crimson Labyrinth by Yusuke Kishi
I mainly read JP light novels, so these are the main series (and 1 stand alone) which i loved. But then there's Forbidden, The Martian, Ready Player One, The Fault in Our Stars etc which blew me away. Hard to pick only one i'm afraid

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
Be With You 今会いにゆきます by Takuji Ichikawa
It's by no means the best book i've read, yet it holds a special place for me. I always, when re-reading think "why'd i love this so much?" but by the end, it's obvious.

4. What book have you read more often than any other?
Don't re-read often, so same as above

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?

message 24: by Nora (last edited Jan 18, 2019 10:35AM) (new)

Nora | 6 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
A tough one, because there are probably so many I've simply forgotten, despite how much I enjoyed them, but the entire Alice series by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (as well as the Prequels) really got me hooked on book series, on returning characters, on watching someone grow over the course of many, many years, and I grew with Alice as I picked up every new book.

2. What is your favorite book now?
Oof, anything by Rainbow Rowell or Frederik Backman, and I really do mean anything. Rowell's Fangirl especially is so relatable on so many levels, told so well; and Backman's My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry has so much wonder, such expertly woven intrigue and characters and inter-character relationship, absolutely STUNNING.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger This one right here, I don't care if I only had to read it for school, such a timeless classic, it was so emotional for me especially as a teen, and perfect for in-depth analysis.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
I've re-read the Harry Potter series many times, as well as the Heroes of Olympus series. I often flip through the Merchant of Venice as well, specifically to get to Shylock's soliloquy ("if you prick us with a pin, do we not bleed?").

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
Carry On (Simon Snow, #1) by Rainbow Rowell Body Types The Enneagram of Essence Types by Joel Friedlander The House of Hades (The Heroes of Olympus, #4) by Rick Riordan Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Creekwood, #1) by Becky Albertalli A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

message 25: by Ronda (new)

Ronda (aunt_nonna) | 107 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child? I loved Judy Blume as a child. I read them all and read them multiple times. I also loved Beverly Cleary. To pick one favorite would be too difficult.
2. What is your favorite book now? Again, too difficult to choose just one.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett Little Women by Louisa May Alcott The Wedding (The Notebook, #2) by Nicholas Sparks The Secret Life Of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain and several more
3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf? I am a book hoarder. I wouldn't remove any of them.
4. What book have your read more often than any other? Love You Forever by Robert Munsch . I read this more times than I can count to my boys.
5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime? Every book that I have ever read. Some because I couldn't wait to see how it ended and some were just because I wanted it over.
6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
Whiskey in a Teacup What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love & Baking Biscuits by Reese Witherspoon In Pieces by Sally Field All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead to name a few


message 26: by Amy (Other Amy) (last edited Jan 25, 2019 08:46AM) (new)

Amy (Other Amy) | 407 comments Oh, I love discussion questions like this!
1. What was your favorite book as a child?
I had a bookshelf my dad made in my room and I loved everything on it. I received The Lord of the Rings when I was 12, I think, and that absolutely upended me, and gets the favorite spot.

2. What is your favorite book now?
I couldn't even begin to say! I what I love, I love completely! And I love a lot.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
There are a few (with the stipulation that my shelf is usually my Kindle nowadays):
The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3) by J.R.R. Tolkien Annihilation (Southern Reach, #1) by Jeff VanderMeer Let's Pretend This Never Happened A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy Doorways in the Sand by Roger Zelazny The Sea Came in at Midnight by Steve Erickson Wild Children by Richard Roberts Hyperbole and a Half Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot The Arrival by Shaun Tan Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
I don't reread books very often, but I used to reread The Lord of the Rings every couple of years. But the all time winner has to be Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?, which I still get out and read out loud from time to time.

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
I have such a bad habit of 'just one more page'. Even the book I'm reading now, which I don't really love. But the most memorable late night session in recent times was when The Sea Came in at Midnight kept me up to the wee hours of the morning finishing it and then I just sat on the couch in a daze afterward, amazed by the book.

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
Ha! I never know the answer. I change my mind a thousand times a minute. Then I pick one, finish it, and wonder why the heck I read that.


message 27: by Ketutar (new)

Ketutar Jensen | 74 comments 1. What was your favorite book as a child?
When I was a kid I always answered The Lord of the Rings- I read it as 10 years old or somewhere there. But I think I like Prince Caspian and The Horse and His Boy even more.

2. What is your favorite book now?
Oh... so many... Terry Pratchett's The Fifth Elephant is one of them.

3. What book would you never remove from your bookshelf?
I would be devastated if any of my books was stolen, but Lord of the Rings I got from my sister as Christmas present when I was 14 would hurt a lot. My Terry Pratchetts, though those are so new they can be replaced rather easily.
Into the Painted Bear Lair by Pamela Stearns would be hard to replace.

4. What book have your read more often than any other?
Anne of Green Gables . the whole series
Little Women - again, the whole series
Eight Cousins, Daddy Longlegs, What Katy Did... girls books like that.

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
The Golden Compass

6. What book are you looking most forward to reading?
Right now N/A, but I did look forward Life of Pi a lot, and when I finally got it, I was so very disappointed I ended up hating the book... so I'm a bit wary of expectations.
(Other books I looked forward to were The Da Vinci Code, Outlander and The Amber Spyglass, and I hate all of them.

Funny story here. I was in grade school when these books came out. My mom gave me money to get a book at the pop-up book club store that came twice a year. The Prisoner of Azkaban was the one that just came out and EVERYONE was reading HP, so I bought it. My mom used to get me and my brother together at night to read chapter books and she realized something was wrong halfway through the second chapter. So we stopped reading it until we purchased the first two. So I read the first 2.5 chapters of the third HP book once more than any of the others. HA! (I read the whole series three times so far.)

5. What book kept you up way past your bedtime?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I stayed up late reading them all but this particular one had me up all night.
