20 Questions with 101 Books

Came across this yesterday and I’m bored, so I decided to answer these 20 questions from 101 Books (most of which are not quite book-related, oh well).

  1. What’s the worst non-fiction book you’ve ever read? I honestly don’t read enough non-fiction to say. I only pick up non-fiction books I know I’ll be interested in.
  2. Least favorite genre of fiction? Chick-lit/romance (especially “paranormal teen romance,” ugh); not a huge fan of fantasy but I’m trying more these days.
  3. What’s your favorite punctuation? I’m pretty partial to the dash myself.
  4. What character from fiction do you most identify with? Elinor from Sense and Sensibility.
  5. More attractive: Yoda or Gollum? I’ve never seen/read any Star Wars or LOTR so I can’t really say.
  6. Excited about the new Star Wars films…yes or no? Not particularly, since I don’t really care one way or the other about the franchise as a whole.
  7. Is it okay to use a coupon on a first date? Depends. On a fancy dinner date? No. But if we, like, went out for ice cream or something super casual like that, I don’t think I would mind.
  8. Clipping fingernails/toenails in public places…poor etiquette? Also depends. Toenails? Absolutely yes. Fingernails? Potentially a different story. I don’t break my nails very often, but when I do, it’s often a catastrophic break that turns my fingernail into a dagger. I would not feel bad about clipping the rest of it off in that case, but I would do it discreetly and not on public transportation if I could help it.
  9. Your dream job? Hmmmm. Probably being high up in the Relay For Life Department at the American Cancer Society.
  10. What’s the fewest amount of pages you’ve read before quitting a book? Probably about 30-50. I don’t really keep a record of this though. 🙂
  11. Fastest you’ve ever driven a car? 85-90 mph.
  12. What is your hobbit name (find it here at the hobbit name generator)? Petunia Sandybanks of Frogmorton
  13. Food/drink you dislike that most people like? Beer. 
  14. Most amount of physical pain you’ve ever experienced? Oh geez I’ve been pretty lucky on this count…probably getting kicked in the head during a dance rehearsal once.
  15. Who inspired you to become a reader? My parents, I guess, who despite not being big readers themselves made sure to read to me all the time.
  16. What’s the last movie you watched in a theater? It’s been years since I’ve seen a movie in the theater…maybe 500 Days of Summer?
  17. More terrible way to die? Cruise ship wreck or plane crash? Definitely the cruise ship. At least the plane crash would be relatively quick.
  18. French fries or chocolate? Neither. Pizza!
  19. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Neither. I’m at my best between 10am-3pm. But if I had to choose, I would go with night.
  20. How did you find 101 BooksProbably through a tag search on the WordPress homepage and have been following ever since! 🙂
