Thursday Tags: Questions About Books

I found this tag over at Lauren Reads YA.  I am going to tag EVERYONE on this tag, so don't forget to add links to your posts in the description or put your answers in the comments.

1. What is your favourite book?
Does the Bible count as just one book?  If not, the book of Esther from the Bible :)
2. Who is your favourite author?
I have several.  Ted Dekker, J.K. Rowling, Jenny Nimmo (Charlie Bone series), Neal Shusterman, William Sirls, Cidney Swanson, Kasie West (can you judge an author by only one book read?), Scott Westerfeld, and Marissa Meyer are some of my favorites.
3. What genre do you prefer?
 I read a lot of YA, especially paranormal and fantasy.  I read some YA contemporary.  I also like christian fiction (adult and YA), christian fantasy, and christian inspirational.  I also read some christian historical fiction.  Basically, anything PG :)
4. What is your favourite book series?
Of all time?  Probably Harry Potter. 
5. What books did you hate reading in school?
I love reading, but when it is required it is not as interesting to me.  I never hate reading, but I did not like required reading in school.
6. What is the first book you remember reading as a child?
Anything Dr. Seuss!
7.  Bookstores or libraries?
I love both!  If I had mony to spend, I would buy a lot more books than I do.  I love libraries though because I can read a book and not feel like I am wasting my money if I do not enjoyt the book.  Oftentimes, I just buy the books that I know that I will reread.
8.  How many books do you own?
Too many to count... probably around 100 or more.
9. Do you read before bed? 

10. What is your most comfortable reading position?

11. What is the most recent book you read?
The last book I finished was Death Note Volume 3.

12. What quote from any book will you never forget? Why is it significant?
Mostly, I only remember Bible verses (Jeremiah 29:11, John 3:16, ect.).

13. Science Fiction or Fantasy?
Can I pick both?  I am going to say both.

14. What books do you regret reading?
Anything not PG rated I will not finish reading.
15. How large is your bookshelf? 
I have a lot of small bookshelves.

16. On average, how many books do you read per year?
Last year, I read 58 books towards my Goodreads goal of 75 books.  This year, I hope to read 75 books.  So far, I have read 49.

17. What book can you read hundreds of times and never get tired of? 
The Bible

18. Do you like to read outside?

19. What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned from a book?
There are many lessons that I have learned from the Bible.  Mainly, that God's love is incredible and there is always hope.  From other books, the biggest lesson that I have learned is that friendship is an incredible thing that you should always be grateful for.

20. Of the past year, what is the greatest book you’ve read? 
The best book that I have read in 2014 is either The Exile by Eric Buffington, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, or Pivot Point by Kasie West.  Yes, I am very indecisive.
