Meme: Book Talk

Psychotic State did this meme a few weeks back that I thought was sort of neat.
But if I were to follow it exactly, I wouldn’t answer most of the questions. So I
adjusted the questions to fit my interests in books. If you’d like to see the original
meme,click on Psychotic State highlighted text.

1. Do you have a favorite author?

no. i have many memorable ones
2. What are your favorite genres?

i like gothic novels but am not goth, historical fiction, biographies/memories,
westerns, murder mysteries, humor 3. Least favorite genre?

manuals, self help, religious, most sci-fi, and books with lots of really gory details.
3. What fictional character are you secretly in love with?

4. What genre would you like to read more of but don’t?

real humor, legends/myths/folklore

I didn't know you were a goth fan! I love dark novels, gothic is still very new. :)

Hi, I just became a follower of your blog. I love your template! I used it for a couple of my blogs, and then added a custom photo at the top.

I just did this meme, too. Check it out on my Rainy Days blog.
