Booking Through Thursday

This week's questions were suggested by Christine.

  1. Do you read non-fiction books for pleasure, not counting books required for courses or for work?Yes

  2. If so, what areas of non-fiction interest you the most? If not, why not? I read books when I'm researching topics of interest to me--the topics change depending on what I'm interested in at the moment. Right now I'm reading a few books on greyhound adoption. I also like reading things on travel, knitting, reading/writing, education, and such.

  3. What are some of your favorite (or least favorite) books from those areas? I don't really have a favorite nonfiction book.

Booking Through Thursday

  1. What is the most pristine, perfect book in your collection? The one that looks like it's never been opened (and in fact may never have been)? Whose binding is uncracked, the corners still perfect?Most, if not all, of my hard covers are in pristine to near pristine condition. I get furious if someone even folds a page. My deluxe edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is still in it's wrapper that it came to me in, so I guess that is the most pristine book I have.

  2. Why is that book so perfect? Was it a gift? Is it a coffee table book too beautiful to use? Something you simply have no interest in and haven't bothered to open? I treat all my books with near reverence; I've read just about all of them(although I keep accumulating more) and I feel that they should be handled with the utmost care and respect.
