So, back to my usual meme-ness in the form of the FridayQ, which this week is all about reading. Not an activity I do much, but, let’s go anyway…
Who is your one favorite author and why is their work so appealing to you?
Douglas Adams. I really like his slightly strange sense of humour and his work is thoroughly entertaining.
What are your two favorite literary subjects and why is reading about them interesting to you?
Usually anything funny, but specifically political or fantasy comedy. I like to be entertained.
What are your three favorite books and why are each of them special to you?
- The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I have the first 5 books in an omnibus edition and like them all.
- Johnny and the Dead by Terry Pratchett. It’s aimed somewhat more at young people but I still like it.
- Indecent Exposure by Tom Sharpe. Just because it amuses me.
FQ AUTHOR: If you had to write a book, what genre of book would you pen (mystery, romance, science fiction, biography, etc.) and what would it be about?
If I was writing a book it’d probably be a reference book for something in the realm of computing, but if I had to write non-fiction it’d probably be some kind of comedy. Don’t really know what about though.
