Who are you favourite authors?
Jane Austen, Neil Gaiman (when I die I want to kidnap Tim Burton and live with him in Neil Gaiman's brain), Susanna Clarke, Cornelia Funke (if you like books and you like magic and books about some magic occuring, go and read the Inkheart series before the film comes out), JK Rowling, Joanne Harris, Tom Holt, Gregory Maguire, Jenny Nimmo, Michael Scott (new entry) Douglas Adams, Eoin Colfer ('nother new entry) William
Goldman (pretty much just for The Princess Bride)What are your favourite genres?
Anything that bears no resemblence to 21st century living as it actually occurs. Nothing too factual or realistic, unless it uses a lot of mythology or folklore.What is your all time #1 favourite book?
It's the HP series, I have read them all so much and they never get boring. When I'm sick they are the books I want. When I can't sleep they are the books I read. I know them better than I know anything else and so it's like going home when I pick one up. I suppose I should have chosen something a bit culty or arty or classic to showcase my huge mind-tank and cultural prowess but it'd be a lie. What else are you reading right now?
Beedle The Bard, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (again) The Sandman Series (GN)If you could name one book that left you speechless or made a huge mark on your life or imagination, what is it?
Jenny Nimmo's The Snow Spider trilogy when I was about 10. I never quite fully left that book and it shows.
