Questions:

Any overrated book which you would love to burn it? i would never burn a book, but i didn’t think looking for alaska is as great as everyone thinks (i still like it though) 4. Preferable number series. (trilogy, four-books series, six or unlimited) i actually don’t mind! its rather does the series need to be this long, or is the author just dragging it out (that is what bugs me!).  5. Favourite fictional character. (CHOOSE ONE ONLY) how could i possible choose one? TOO HARD. though i do love marina from the lorien legacies series!! 6. Favourite non-fiction book. i do love: Life After Death by Damien Echols and The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls  7. How do you deal with books which you can’t possibly continue any longer? well i finish the book, no matter how long it takes. but really i put it down, read another book and try again, until i’ve finished the “bad” book.  8. Best place for bargain books. books4less (actual store in australia!) or online: bookdepository 9. Favourite song mentioned in a book you read. ooooh, not sure. though i did dig some songs mentioned in Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour! 10. How do you stop people from borrowing your books? i just don’t let them borrow my book? (sorry i’m not too sure what you mean by this)  11. Book buying ban?  currently on one, even though i’m about to buy another three books. OOPS.  :)
