And now, instead of posting the next piece, I do this because I am too tired of house cleaning for Lunar New Year and doing free physiotherapy for my family, I can be an acupuncturist! AND FREAKING BUSY FOR THE REVISIONS!  I AM GONNA DIE!

1. Favorite childhood book?
Every crime fiction available !
As long it makes me think :D
Among my wishes, becoming a detective was one :D
But now I have to regretly forget it because my IQ is not high enough. Umh, 127. I took the Ultimate IQ quiz on FB, It may not be accurate, though. I may get lower results. :))

2. What are you reading right now?
A book that has a sexy Latin name :-P

3. What books do you have on request at the library?
None at the moment. And if I do go to one, I almost always go to the crime fiction! XD

4. Bad book habit?
Go with my personal motto: Interested in everything that makes me interested in. 
You get the gist :D

5. What do you currently have checked out at the library?
Nothing. My libraries don't have what I need :D

6. Do you have an e-reader?
No. I do everything on lap :D So I virtually go crazy everytime it goes mad. I pray to God on High that it will love me because I love it so. And yes, it has a name. :-P (Is the preposition on 5 and 6 right? )

7. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
Several. Because I am so dumb that I have to rely on scientific books to help me understand all the subtleties in detective stories.

8. Have your reading habits changed since starting a blog?
No. I just have more resources.

9. Least favorite book you read this year (so far?)
Nothing. If I don't like it, I don't read it. (Unless it's compulsory academic books. But I like them all in the end because they help me pass the tests.)

10. Favourite book you’ve read this year?
IWTV. I especially love the atmosphere and the closeness of it. It's just like I were living at my home there :D
I love the love there. For the living and not living alike. Oh, I just come back to the silly *review* I wrote a long time ago. I know I am a child at heart, like most ENTPs are :D

11. How often do you read out of your comfort zone?
What do you think about it after reading all the above answers?
12. What is your reading comfort zone?
As I said before, everything interests me and makes me think :D
Especially everything on Psychometry and Psychoanalysis. Told you, I am a sado-macho and I love it :-P

13. Can you read on the bus?
Yes, and on the moon as well if I am allowed :D

14. Favorite place to read?
Everywhere, everytime :D 

15. What is your policy on book lending?
Only lend them to those I love! 

16. Do you ever dog-ear books?
Jamais! Kesshite nai! Never!

17. Do you ever write in the margins of your books?

18. Not even with text books?
No highlight. No dogear. No underline. No nothing :)

19. What is your favorite language to read in?
No favourite language. :D
As long as I can read it, it is my favourite.

20. What makes you love a book?
The atmosphere, the landscape, the bond, the thoughts, everything that makes me feel close to it.
If I can't feel close to the characters, the landscapes, the thoughts, and other undefinable factors, I don't read it.

21. What will inspire you to recommend a book?
If I like it, of course :D

22. Favorite genre?
Crime and Science fictions that involve solving crimes and mysteries! XD 

23. Genre you rarely read (but wish you did?)
I wish to read nothing I rarely read.

24. Favorite biography?
Don't have time for others' biographies. Unless it's about my loved one :)

25. Have you ever read a self-help book?
Never. And I don't think I ever need to and have time to :) - The second one is the more pivotal reason!

26. Favorite cookbook?
I cook according to my instinct! :))

27. Most inspirational book you’ve read this year (fiction or non-fiction)?
His books :) Which of course are detective fictions! Mwahahaha! I love his books since a child :D

28. Favorite reading snack?
I do not often eat while reading, unless they are daily newspapers or boring books to while away the time.

29. Name a case in which hype ruined your reading experience.
No case, dear. I am not that easily influenced ! B-)

30. How often do you agree with critics about a book?
I don't care much about others' criticism. If I like it, I like it.
But I sometimes kill time by reading comments on Amazon and other book communities just for self-harassment.

31. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews?
I don't like giving bad/ negative reviews. The writers have put so much love in it.
Of course, there are some exceptions. But now come to think of it, I think I was too bad.
Twilight is the one and only example. I just use it to compare with other books.

32. If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you chose?
Umh. I don't like reading books in foreign languages.
The situation here is that they are not exactly foreign to me :D 
I suck at learning languages so I don't want to learn languages that are so foreign unless I have to - which thankfully, haven't. But I would love to learn German though I know the chances are very low. Say it again, I suck at languages, sincerely, Eternity.

33. Most intimidating book you’ve ever read?
Nah. Books are not that intimidates me :D

34. Most intimidating book you’re too nervous to begin?

35. Favorite Poet?
Look at this list and the other links. There are some of them :D I am too lazy to list them all, even on there.

36. How many books do you usually have checked out of the library at any given time?
2,3. I was only allowed so.

37. How often have you returned book to the library unread?
Never :)

38. Favorite fictional character?
Him. And Him. And Him. Everyone that is upbeat, blond, charming, intelligent, lovely, etc, you just fill in the blank.
Well, Louis and, umh, haven't thought of anyone right at the moment. But sometimes I just want to slap him hard across his face though I always resist the urge. I think he is just, well, Louis.
I almost only have eyes for blonds or strawberry blonds, dark blonds, dirty blonds, platinum blonds, golden blonds, etc. You get it, I may gather? I have spent weeks just to research on that subject!

39. Favorite fictional villain?
Haven't thought of anyone right now. My mind now is just full of blonds and the like.

40. Books I’m most likely to bring on vacation?
Crime fictions.

41. The longest I’ve gone without reading.
Half a day, perhaps?

42. Name a book that you could/would not finish.
The prequels of IW. Nothing. They just lose their closeness to me. 

43. What distracts you easily when you’re reading?
Hihi Hi hi :">

44. Favorite film adaptation of a novel?
Narnia 1st book, IW, Sherlock Holmes series, Poirot, etc.

45. Most disappointing film adaptation?
Haven't found any yet :)
I often like both the books and the films. If I don't read the book, it is unlikely that I will watch the movie.

46. The most money I’ve ever spent in the bookstore at one time?
I don't buy books much. I am often given them as presents or use hands-me-down - they are often counted as presents, too :D

47. How often do you skim a book before reading it?
Always. I can't resist the suspense! XD
I know this is not considered a good habit, but, it's just, IRRESISTIBLE! XD

48. What would cause you to stop reading a book half-way through?
I stop reading a book right from the first several pages if I don't like it.
Why do I have to waste so much time as to continue reading something I don't like till half-way?

49. Do you like to keep your books organized?
I don't have enough books to do that. 

50. Do you prefer to keep books or give them away once you’ve read them?
Keep them.
Don't have many anyway :)

51. Are there any books you’ve been avoiding?
Avoiding? Me? Are you serious?

52. Name a book that made you angry.
Umh. No. I don't have any.
Disappointing, maybe, but not irritating,

53. A book you didn’t expect to like but did?
Nothing. I just know it if I like it or not right from the start.
This goes with humans, too.
If I like someone, I know it right from the start that I would like that one :D
Trying to like someone is just in vain to me.
 I am sure they know it when I don't talk to them much anymore. Because they started not talking to me and harassing me first. I don't  harass them back. I just try to stay friendly out of courtesy. I don't think it's called being mature. I think it's just my nature not to cause drama. I hate drama. I only want to live a normal life by the fire. This is trademark. Don't ever steal it!

54. A book that you expected to like but didn’t?
Haven't thought of any right at the moment but recently I had expected that Black Swan would be nice but it turned out to be not nice enough to me. I know that almost all other friends love it. But it just doesn't appeal to me. It's a movie, I know, but it is the first thing that popped up in my mind, ok?

55. Favorite guilt-free, pleasure reading?

I am shadow. I am glory :):
