So happy to be nominated for this blogging award! Thank you again Jenaca https://jenacidebybibliophile.wordpress.com/ for nominating me.
The Questions from Jenacidebybibliophile:
1. What is your favorite book turned into a movie? Most times the movie doesn’t live up to the book. A few exceptions are Jane Eyre (the BBC version starring Ruth Wilson) and Mystic River by Dennis Lehane.
2. How long have you been blogging? I have had my blog Fictionophile since the fall of 2007. Before that I maintained a website (which I have since taken down).
3. What is your favorite book series? Can’t pick only one…
I enjoy many mystery series such as The Three Pines mysteries by Louise Penny, The Inspector Lynley series by Elizabeth George, The Inspector Banks series by Peter Robinson, The Lacey Flint series by Sharon Bolton, The Dalgliesh novels of P.D. James, the Wexford novels of Ruth Rendell, etc. etc….
4. What character do you connect with the most? Jane Eyre.
5. Do you use a bookmark or do you bend the corner of the page? I always use a bookmark… however these days I tend to read almost exclusively on my Kindle which conveniently keeps my place. 🙂
6. What genre of book would you like to live in? Historical romance.
7. Do you prefer to buy your books online or at an actual bookstore? Either, any way I can get them. I’m a book glutton.
8. Where is your favorite place to read? On my front lawn at the cottage which overlooks the salt water of the Northumberland Strait.
9. What author has the best style of writing for you? Again, it is difficult to choose just one. I admire the style of many authors. If I had to choose a favorite I guess it would be P.D. James.
10. What are your other hobbies or interests? I work as a cataloguer in a public library and that has been my passion for the past few decades. Outside of work and reading I enjoy spending time with my husband and grown children, socializing with friends, gardening, travel, crocheting, playing Scrabble etc.
