E.M. Kingston has started a new weekly prompt called The Sunday Ramble. It is based upon a certain topic. She asks five questions about that topic, that we can ramble on however we wish. Today’s topic is “books.”
1. Do you prefer digital, paperback, or hard bound books?
With all of the moving around the country we’ve done over years, it didn’t make sense to schlep all of our books from place to place. So now, except for the children’s books we read to our grandkids, all of my books are digital, readable through my Kindle App on my iPhone.
2. Do you have a library full of books or just your favorite tales?
Since close to all of my books that I’ve read over the past decade are on my iPhone, I don’t have a library of physical books in my house.
3. Harry Potter, Narnia, or Twilight? (You can choose all three or pick and choose.)
None of the above. I’d choose Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings or Asimov’s Foundation Series.
4. Do you like when books are turned into movies? Why or why not?
Very few books that are turned into movies live up to the books upon which they were based. and it bothers me when the visions I painted in my mind’s eyes while reading a book is characterized differently in the movie.
5. What is a book that you have read over and over again?
I rarely read a book “over and over again.” Well, except for a children’s book that my grandson wants me to read to him over and over again.
