  1. ...and here are mine:

    6. Do you have an e-reader?
    No, but if one came out that also allowed me to play music and work in Google Docs, and cost rather less than the average netbook, I just might do it.

    7. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
    Fiction: One at a time. I like being immersed in a story. Non fiction: Those wind up by my couch in stacks, half-finished.

    8. Have your reading habits changed since starting a blog?
    Sure have. Blogging takes a lot of time. Committing myself to reading one new book a week also changed things.

    9. Least favorite book you read this year (so far?)
    I'm tempted to say Mockingjay, but I loved Peeta so much...

    10. Favorite book you’ve read this year?
    Well, since I'm still in the middle of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for the ???th time and Orthodoxy for the second? third? full read, probably Persuasion.

  2. 6. Do you have an e-reader?
    No, and no thank you. Nothing beats the feel and smell of a real book... and the ability to remember that you left off "in the upper corner of the right page."

    7. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
    I prefer to read one at a time, but I'm afraid I sometimes get bored with a story and move on to others and then go back to the original one.

    8. Have your reading habits changed since starting a blog?
    No real correlation that I can see.

    9. Least favorite book you read this year (so far?)
    Ugh. Ew. Blech. I'm ashamed to admit I even read it; the taste in my mouth is still vile. A nasty John Grisham book, The Chamber.

    10. Favorite book you’ve read this year?
    Persuasion. It's so utterly perfect (although Fellowship of the Ring will probably trump it once I finish it... again).

  3. I know what you mean about the e-readers, Farmer's City Wife. Any book that I love, I'm always going to want in hard copy for just those reasons.

    It's a lot of fun hearing you talk about Tolkien. :)

  4. 6) I used to think the exact same thing about e-readers...until I got an e-reader. Now, I can't really live without it. I find it hard to read books otherwise than on the e-reader. For me, it's all about reading rather than the medium necessarily.

    7) I would prefer to read one book at a time but end up having several going at once.

    8) Well, I don't have a blog per se but am involved in writing for a blog. I would say I've read quite a few things I normally wouldn't have read in order to help make the blog experience better.

    9) Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Not because it was necessarily a bad book but because it fell so far short of the previous two books in the series.

    10) The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien & Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis. It's a tie.

  5. A day late to the party, but my answers to Part 2 of the Thursday Book Questions are up at my blog:

    http://donnarosemary.blogspot.com/2010/09/thursday-book-questions-on-friday-pt-2.html

    I feel very out of the loop, since I haven't read the Suzanne Collins trilogy yet. As soon as I have a chance to breathe I plan to give them a go--taking Jenna's warnings of the violent nature of the plot to heart before proceeding. I am glad to be warned at least. :)

    Farmer's City Wife, I read The Chamber in early high school, when I was really into law dramas in novel-form. I remember not being a fan at all, and I think I had to force myself to finish it. So, I feel your pain.

  6. 6. Do you have an e-reader?
    No...I can't do it...I need paper pages.

    7. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once.
    Most of the time I am reading several at once, if they are fiction. But I'm with you Jenna, if they are Non-Fiction "Those wind up by my couch in stacks, half-finished."

    8. Have your reading habits changed since No real blog to speak of yet...and it will be made up mainly of photos when ready to launch, so, not really applicable.

    9. Least favorite book you read this year (so far?)
    Yeah, Mockinjay

    10. Favorite book you’ve read this year?
    Oooohhhh, I don't know. I'll have to come back to that..but it's dinner time right now so...most frequently read book was probably "Twilight." Hmmmm

  7. I'm loving reading everybody's answers, especially the favorite books. :D

    Round of thumbs-down on Mockingjay? Sometimes from this distance I'll think about things I liked and have more positive feelings toward it; once I start thinking about details, I'm a lot less enthused.
