Life Defined by Literature

I’ve snipped this from Paperback Reader. Looks like immense fun (the book geek that I am).

Using only books you have read this year (2009), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title.

Describe yourself: The Reader (Bernhard Schlink)

How do you feel: The Big Sleep (Raymond Chandler)

Describe where you currently live: Love in a Cold Climate (Nancy Mitford)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Truman Capote)

Your favorite form of transportation: 4.50 from Paddington (Agatha Christie)

Your best friend is: Lucky (Alice Sebold)

You and your friends are: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (Lewis Carroll)

What’s the weather like: Tender is the Night (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

You fear: The Plague (Albert Camus)

What is the best advice you have to give: Let the Right One In (John Ajvide Lindqvist) 🙂

Thought for the day: This is How (M.J. Hyland)

How I would like to die: Crime and Punishment (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)

My soul’s present condition: Great Expectations (Charles Dickens)

That was pretty hard! Leave a link if you decide to do this too. I’ll be interested in your replies.

And here’s a quiz via With Extra Pulp about your reading personality.

Your Reading Personality: Eclectic Reader!

You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You’re open to new ideas and new writers, and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors.

Well, that was interesting. The book quotes were all so fabulous I wanted to pick them all.
