Booking Through Thursday

Looks like a pretty interesting weekly meme.

What was the last book you bought?
Nicky Epistein's Knitting on Top of the World

Name a book you have read MORE than once.
Ummm, there are a lot. I'll cop out and say Pride and Prejudice.

Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?
And The Band Played On
by Randy Shilts
How do you choose a book? (eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews)
Usually by recommendation or by review, although cover design can catch my eye when I'm just browsing.
Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
Fiction all the way
What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
Most loved/memorable character (character/book).
Winnie the Pooh

Which book or books can be found on your nightstand at the moment?
Too many to name.

What was the last book you’ve read, and when was it?
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson and The Green Knight by Iris Murdoch - last week. I'm reading Brick Lane by Monica Ali right now.

Have you ever given up on a book half way in?

Current book-in-progress: Brick Lane, The Millenium Problems, The Elegant Universe
Current knitted item: Rachel's baby booties - must be done by Sunday and I've procrastinated long enough (and I have to re-knit a secret item because I boo-booed on it)
Current movie obsession: Slings and Arrows complete box set
Current iTunes loop: East Village Opera Company Olde School
*edit: you'll need to forgive the line spacing - Blogger randomly decided not to recognize carriage returns*
