Booking Through Thursday

A short and sweet question from the Booking Through Thursday meme this week: What’s the most informative book you’ve read recently? The most practical and informative book I have read recently would have to be Table Tucker, a cookbook by New Zealand-born Australian mum Penina Petersen. I have reviewed Table Tucker here at Reading Upside …

Booking Through Thursday – Recent “Big” Reads

booking-through-thursday

What’s the biggest book you’ve read recently? (Feel free to think “big” as size, or as popularity, or in any other way you care to interpret.) My choice is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Although not a particularly big book in length (a pretty standard 454 pages) it is “big” in the response it …

BTT – Thinking Deep, Deep Thoughts

room_at_the_top_ARTWORK.qxd:Layout 1

What’s the most serious book you’ve read recently? (I figure it’s easier than asking your most serious book ever, because, well, it’s recent!) A few weeks ago I read A Room at the Top by Heath Ducker and Sarah Trenoweth. Heath is an amazing young Australian with an incredibly inspiring and encouraging message to share. Heath …

But I Thought Everyone Read this Stuff…

Booking Through Thursday

There are certain types of books that I more or less assume all readers read. (Novels, for example.) But then there are books that only YOU read. Instructional manuals for fly-fishing. How-to books for spinning yarn. How to cook the perfect souffle. Rebuilding car engines in three easy steps. Dog training for dummies. Rewiring your …

BTT: Sticky Books

Animalia by Graeme Base

I saw this over at Shelley’s, and thought it sounded like a great question for all of you: “This can be a quick one. Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.” Here are …

BTT – Pass the Brain Bleach Please

Booking Through Thursday

This week’s Booking Through Thursday question: Is there a book that you wish you could “unread”? One that you disliked so thoroughly you wish you could just forget that you ever read it? In my wild and crazy youth, I would finish every book I started no matter how badly written or how hackneyed or …

BTT – A Second First Time?

Booking Through Thursday

  What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time? (Interestingly, I thought that I had thought this one up myself, but when I started scrolling through the Suggestions, found that Rebecca had suggested almost exactly this question a couple months ago. So, we both get credit!) A few …
