  1. Do you use read apps and/or devices? Let us know which do you recommend.
Not yet, but I'm thinking about buying an ipad. I've tried reading books on my pc and iphone but I don't enjoy reading on these kinds of screens. I would to hear what others think and recommend for this question.
  1. Have you read any short stories recently, which one?
Alice Munro's 'Too Much Happiness'. Normally I love her short stories but this selection was just too sad and depressing. I also like William Trevor for short stories.

The book I want to be buried with is Vikram Seth's 'A Suitable Boy' and the book I've read the most often is 'Pride and Prejudice'.

  1. Do you have a favorite quote? From which book is it?
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. Dr Seuss
  1. Do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks, why?
I will always love paperbacks. I love the feel of them, the smell of them, the pleasure of flicking through the pages, the way they fit into my hand (and heart)! I will use e-books for work, for convenience.
  1. Which books do you plan to read during this month?
'The Killables' by Gemma Malley, 'The End of Illness' by David B Agus, 'The Apothecary' by Maile Meloy, 'Why We Broke Up' by Daniel Handler & Maira Kalman and 'Bitter Greens' by Kate Forsyth

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great answers to some great questions. I don't have an eReader yet myself. I've heard great things about the Nook and have had a couple people tell me that if you can afford the iPad they'd recommend it. One of the things I like about the iPad is you can download apps for Kindle and Nook. Plus it will make my life so much easy when I travel. No more lugging my laptop around.

  2. Great answers! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have a Sony T1 and absolutely love it! You can take out library books!

    PS.. New Follower :)

  3. Thanks for answering the book tag questions. Reading on a tablet is really good, you can use many apps for ready (Kindle, Nookk, Aldiko...)


  4. Thanks for the tag. It's my third tag the past month. I will probably just do one big post for all of them, time willing.
    Thanks for all your past comments, I just recently found you... I couldn't previously view your profile.

  5. Tried to correct the error on the Linky, it has a 0 after .html
    This is the correct link, Linky doesn't allow corrections. If there is a way, let me know.

    1. I'm new to linky links and was feeling proud enough that I worked out how to get one onto my page in the first place!! So, no I have no idea (yet!) how to delete a link - perhaps just add a second(correct) link as there doesn't seem to be a limit on these :-)

    2. Thanks to your prompt I've been exploring the options available in linkytools. I fixed your link above (yah!) and added some extra features :-)

  6. Thanks for tagging me! I will do a post on it soon! Nice answers too!
