The Friday Five (on Saturday)

1. What was your favourite book during childhood?

Even as a child I never had a favourite book; there were far too many I loved. One of my favourite childhood authors was Enid Blyton and I still read some of her books today.

2. What is your favourite book now?

Once again I don't have a favourite book; there are many, many books I love. I couldn't just pick one. Picking five would be hard enough.

3. What is your favourite movie adaptation of a book?

Hmmm, that's a good question; there are a few I really like. But I think my favourite is the 1951 Alastair Sim adaptation of A Christmas Carol - in the original black & white, not the 'touched' up one they released later on. We tend to watch that every Christmas.

4. Do you prefer checking out books from the library or buying them?

I buy books.

5. Have you ever been let down by a book that was highly recommended to you?

Yes, a few times. One in particular was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. It came very highly recommended and I really disliked it and felt very let down by it. I read it at the time when I was still in my 'if I start a book I have to finish' it stage. Today, I wouldn't have got beyond that first chapter, if that, but back then I ploughed through the whole thing.
