Short meme 3

I hope you guys won't get tired of me and my short memes. :) If you do, just don't read this post.

 

1. Favorite classic author and favorite modern author.

 

Tough question actually. I guess I'll go with Jane Austen for the first part of this question, even though I love to read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books as well some of Dickens' too. I haven't read Jane Eyre yet either so I can't say for sure how much I'll like it but I'm hoping I'll love it. Modern author: even more difficult. If I only get to pick one I'll go with - Janet Evanovich's books, if only because they can almost always make me laugh, no matter how depressed I am. Needless to say, I have many other favorites, but I really can't choose between them.


2. Night in with a good book or Night out with friends?

 

Night in with a good book, naturally. :)


3. Favorite Era/Time period to read about.

 

I'm pretty much open to (almost) anything as far as time period is concerned. Prehistory isn't my favorite though. It's a bit too much speculation for my taste, as well as too gruesome. "Everyone eats everyone else". Ugh.

Gilda.

New short book related meme

I found this on Litsy, and I thought I'd do it here.

 

1. Do you collect anything?

 

Books. :) My old toys. (I'm not sure if that counts?)


2. Do you prefer dust jacket, naked book or a book sleeve?

 

I don't really have a preference. It depends.


3. Where do you most often get the books you read?

 

Amazon or the Swedish online book store Bokus. Freebies from Amazon, Wattpad, Smashwords and Gutenberg.

Book meme - older favorite books

I found this meme on a Swedish book blog and I thought I'd do it too.

The meme is about appreciating classics, books that are at least 100 years old.

Irritatingly, my homepages are still down. I had expected them to be up and working again by now, but no such luck. Grr. At least I have Dreamwidth and Booklikes.

First of all I'll mention my favorite Jane Austens:

Northanger Abbey
Persuasion
Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice
Lady Susan
(I'd say Sanditon too, but I'm afraid I don't even remember what I thought about it). All were published between 1794 and 1818.

Most of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books about Sherlock Holmes are at least 100 years old too. I'll pick A Study in Scarlet (1887) and The Sign of the Four (1890), even though I like all his books about Sherlock Holmes.

I'd mention some by Charles Dickens as well, but it's been ages since I last read any of them so I'll save them for later.

My favorite Jules Verne book, Voyage au centre de la Terre/Journey to the Center of the Earth, is from 1864. I'm not sure why Iike this one so much, but I do.

Edith Nesbit's children's books are other favorites of mine. I can mention The House of Arden, The Railway Children and The Enchanted Castle. They were published 1906 -1908.

Speaking of children's books, I have to mention Alice in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1871).

I was going to mention Winnie the Pooh and The Red House Mystery by A A Milne, but it turns out they were all published in the 1920's.

I also thought a few of Agatha Christie's mysteries were published a hundred years ago or more, but it turns out I was wrong. They too were published from the 1920's and on.

However it seems Trent's Last Case by B C Bentley was published in 1913 so that one counts. One interesting detail about that book is that a Swedish mystery writer, Stieg Trenter took is name from Trent. His wife and one of his daughters are also mystery writers (his daughter writes for children).
