Book lovin'

Now this meme I can really relate to! It's all about books, and I love them. I don't always get around to reading much for relaxation purposes because I spend so much time sitting around doing reading for my course that by the time I'm done I don't really fancy more reading. But it's one of my biggest passions, I suppose. So this is a good basis to talk about something I like...

1. Favorite Book You've Read?: This is difficult as I have many favourites. The book that's had the biggest impact on me in recent times is The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. It's nothing like anything I've ever read. I never cry at books and films and stuff, but bits of that book almost got me. It's very clever, and definitely worth reading.
2. Favorite Book Character?: I'm gonna cheat here and say someone that's actually real. Tom Reynolds wrote the book Blood, Sweat & Tea, which is based on his Random Acts of Reality blog and is an interesting and insightful account of his life in the London Ambulance Service. He's funny but not in a disrespectful way, and seems like a really nice guy. I certainly couldn't do his job but he seems good at it!
3. Favorite Book Genre?: Erm, fairly mainstream fiction I suppose. Anything that engages me and takes longer than an hour to read. I don't really do chick lit unless I'm very tired...
4. Hardcover or Paper Back?: Paperback, all the way. Fits in your bag easily and doesn't make your arms ache if you're reading in bed.

That's all for now - I really need to get on with some reading today, though I could do with going to get food so I can have some lunch. My body clock is pretty confused as I ended up going to bed at 6am, so I think a bacon sandwich may be in order. Yum.
