Here are my answers to the questions. Sorry there aren't any pictures - I'm really short on time.
1. Name three books you love.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Emma by Jane Austen, A Gown of Spanish Lace by Janette Oke
2. Name two books you enjoy, but that most people probably haven't heard of.
The School Story by Andrew Clements, Fifteen by Beverly Cleary
3. Name three series you love.
My favorite definitely used to be the Mandie series by Lois G. Leppard; Samantha & Kit American Girl books (does that count as one?), Love Comes Softly series by Janette Oke.
4. Name three authors you love!
Jane Austen, Janette Oke, Elizabeth Gaskell (even though I haven’t read a whole book by her yet, I like her stories)
5. How about three adventures or mysteries?
Running Out of Time by Margaret P. Haddix. Sorry, I can’t think of 3.
6. Three non-fiction?
The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret C. Sullivan, Jane Austen for Dummies, Jane Austen’s Letters (okay, that’s just the first three that came to my mind. Haha)
7. Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys? Which book in your favorite set is your favorite?
Nancy Drew. Probably The Mystery at Lilac Inn or The Clue of the Broken Locket, but then I haven’t read an excessive amount of those.
8. Narnia or Harry Potter? Name your favorite from the series you like best.
Really neither, but definitely NOT Harry Potter. As far as Narnia goes, I’ve only read about half of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe a pretty long time ago.
9. A cookbook or a how-to-sew book?
Well, it depends on what I’m cooking and what I’m sewing. But probably sewing…that has the most interesting pictures. ;-)
10. Historical fiction or fantasy? Name three books you like from the genre you chose.
Historical fiction! Um…A Gown of Spanish Lace by Janette Oke, When Calls the Heart by the same, A School of Her Own by Arleta Richardson. (All three of those are about teachers, my favorite historical fiction subject.)
11. Hardcover or softcover?
That depends on whether it makes it easier or harder to hold, but maybe hardcover.
12. Louisa May Alcott or Lucy Maud Montgomery? Name your favorite book by the author you chose.
I suppose I must say Lucy Maud Montgomery since I have finished some of her books. Probably Anne of Green Gables. (I also really like Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island.)
13. Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte? Name your favorite book by the author you chose.
Jane Austen!!!!!!! What, just one? Well, Pride and Prejudice.
14. Would you rather read historical fiction about the sinking of the Titanic, or the Civil War?
Probably the Civil War. That has a better ending. :-)
15. What's your favorite classic? Why?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Yes, this is the 3rd time I mentioned that book.
It has such variety in it, so many interesting characters, and is – as Jane Austen cheerfully observed – ‘light, bright, and sparkling.’ It’s so fun to read; when I pick it up it never fails to put a smile on my face. It’s so easy to laugh when reading Pride and Prejudice! Oh yes, and then of course we have Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. With such a heroine and hero, how could it fail to be delightful?
16. Little Women or A Little Princess?
I’ve never actually finished either book (shocking, I know), but probably Little Women.
17. What's your favorite time period to read about?
That depends on the setting. If it’s in England, probably the early 1800s (Regency period…surprise!) and if in America, usually I like mid-late 1800s.
18. G. A. Henty, J. R. R. Tolkien, or Charles Dickens? What's your favorite book or series by the author you chose?
Charles Dickens. I haven’t actually read any of his books, but Little Dorrit might be my favorite story. (I might never read it though…it is excessively long!) I’m going to be reading A Tale of Two Cities for school.
19. Ivanhoe or Ben-Hur?
I actually haven’t read either. Am I very ill-educated?
20. Name three books everyone should read.
The Bible, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (4th time!), and another Jane Austen of their choice.
21. Name two books we wouldn't have expected you to enjoy.
I really have no idea. What wouldn’t you expect me to enjoy? Maybe one would be Baby Island by Carol Ryrie Brink.
22. Name three books that have good movies to go with them.
I do hope you will forgive me for altering this question…but I’m going to name 3 authors that have good movies to go with some of their books:
Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Charles Dickens
23. Any books coming out soon that you're looking forward to?
The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis
24. Name two authors you'd like to talk to.
Jane Austen (unfortunately impossible), Jamie Langston Turner (or someone else who’s a Christian and mentions Jane Austen in her book[s]. hehe)
25. Science fiction or a fairy tale?
Probably fairy tale, but it depends on what kind.
26. A classic book you haven't read is...?
Lots! Let’s see…Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.
27. Shakespeare or George Bernard Shaw (who wrote Pygmalion)?
Shakespeare, I would suppose.
28. Name a movie (or two) where it's actually better than the book.
Mary Poppins (ugh! And I don’t even like the movie, but the book…), and probably any fairy-tale turned Disney (namely Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty).
29. Where is your favorite place to read?
My bed. However, if I could read anywhere I wanted, it would be a neat old attic or a relaxing chair in a beautiful garden.
30. What are your favorite quotes from books?
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerable stupid.” – Henry Tilney, Northanger Abbey
“The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!” –Marianne Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility
“For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?” –Mr. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice
31. What book would you most like to see made into a movie?
That is a very hard decision. If we’re talking about something that’s already been made into a movie but needs a different one, I’d say Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. But I would love to see movies of Running Out of Time and A Gown of Spanish Lace, if they are faithful to the books. Oh and also Jane Austen’s minor works would be great. =D
32. What book character do you identify the most with?
I identify with Elizabeth Bennet, Marianne Dashwood, and Catherine Morland all in different ways. ;-)
