Over on twitter people have been using #bookaday (hashtag book a day) to answer a set of questions about books – there was one for each day in June. This initiative was set up by @BoroughPress. Being something of a book loving rebel I’ve decided that I’m going to answer the prompts on my blog. And do it in July (although that’s mostly because I didn’t realise when I first looked at the image that it was meant to be a June thing). As July goes on I will edit the list below so the prompts link to the relevant entry on my blog.
2nd Best bargain
12th I pretend to have read
13th Makes me laugh
14th An old favourite
15th Favourite fictional father
16th Can’t believe more people haven’t read
17th Future classic
18th Bought on a recommendation
19th Still can’t stop talking about it
20th Favourite cover
21st Summer read
22nd Out of print
23rd Made to read at school
24th Hooked me in to reading
25th Never finished it
26th Should have sold more copies
27th Want to be one of the characters
28th Bought at one of my fave independent bookshops
29th The one I have reread most often
30th Would save if my house burned down
Looking at the list some of those prompts are going to be really easy for me. One or two completely stump me but hopefully by the time I get to them and give them some thought I might come up with something. And there are a few books which I could use for more than one of the prompts.
I think this should be interesting.
