Book A Day

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.

Everyday in June everyday in June we're asking book lovers everywhere to tweet their #bookaday. Underneath this is a white box with the prompts.

1st Favourite book from childhood

2nd Best bargain

3rd One with a blue cover

4th Least favourite book by a favourite author

5th Doesn’t belong to me.

6th The one I always give as a gift

7th Forgot that I owned

8th Have more than one copy

9th Film or TV tie-in

10th Reminds me of someone I love

11th Secondhand bookshop gem

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

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

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.
