NaBloWriMo

You know, I'm crazy enough for filling up my schedule like a nutty person. Why I thought I should throw my hat in the ring for NaBloWriMo I'll never know.

Anyway, I wandered over for a prompt (I'm saving the rest of my book festival posts for when I have a bit more coherence), and found: 1. Who is your favourite author? or 2. What is your favourite book? or 3. Do you find yourself talking like the characters in the book you just read?

Hey, look. C.S. Lewis and Elinor M.
Brent-Dyer, hanging out on my
shelf. (They were contemporaries,
after all.)
1. I don't have a favourite. I like most authors that I read. BUT, according to Goodreads, here are my most-read authors: Terry Pratchett, Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and in a 3-way tie for 4th place: J.K Rowling, Beverly Cleary, and C.S. Lewis. Sounds about right.

2. At this moment, my favourite is probably Spindle's End, by Robin McKinley. Love love love that book. My perpetual, life-long favourite? Well, favourites, actually, because it's the Little House series. Little House on the Prairie was the first 'real' book that I read and I've been a fan ever since.

3. Always. Chad can usually guess what book I've been reading by the way I talk. It's ridiculous. What's even worse is that I think the way the characters talk x 25-- it's no wonder I talk that way, really.

What about you? Same questions!

I don't have one favorite author either, though my most read is John Grisham.

The idea of talking like the characters in your most recent read makes me laugh. It would be hilarious if everyone did that!

I sort of have favorites by genre, rather than just one, because in different moods, even my favorites won't quite do it if it's a mismatch... though I could probably read the Harry Potter series endlessly. So maybe Jo and HP win.

I don't do the character voices though... Maybe because I don't really like my own voice and I don't want to muck it up.

I love Robin McKinley's books! They're some of my all-time favorite Fantasy. :)

I can think of one right now, but I do love John Grisham books.

@Karen: Very true. Although I didn't know that it was weird until about a year or so ago. ;)

@Hart: An excellent point.

@Eagle: I picked it up on a whim one day... best whim ever.

@Toyin: I think it's hard to nail down a favourite, really.
