Who are your favorite authors? What are your favorite books?

Michael Crichton, Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Brown, Dean Koontz

The Desert Island Questions: Which 3 books would you take if you were deserted on an island? Which 3 creature comforts would you want if you were deserted on an island? Upon which island are you deserted - and how did you find yourself to be there?

No answer yet

What are your favorite adaptations from books you've seen and also read or intend to read? What is the worst? What are your favorite adaptation from the works of Shakespeare?

Favorite that I've read: the Harry Potter movies. Favorite that I intend to read: Game of Thrones. Worst: Watchers (hard to believe so many terrible adaptations came from a very good book).

What literary characters would you most like to meet... and what would you do with them? Which deceased author would you most like to meet and why?

Lunch with Holden Caulfield. Or playing pool with Katniss Everdeen (even though I'd surely lose, as I'm sure archery skills translate well to shooting pool). And I'd like to meet the fairly recently Michael Crichton and talk to him about his process of writing.

As an Amused Reader of N4B, do you promise to behave with kindness and respect towards all members of N4B both in and out of the events of N4B and to honor the spirit of N4B - the good fellowship of a community of readers?

Of course!

Introduction

Hi-- I love reading and book discussion to take my mind off the day to day grind. This group looks like fun!
