Book Questionnaire Meme

By Appraisingpages @appraisjngpages


We wanted to do something new and very different from anything we’ve done before on the blog.  Our absolute favorite part of having this site is getting to interact with other readers and discussing (and yes, sometimes fighting!) about what our favorite books, characters, and series are.  It’s worth the time and money for the site and all its upkeep to have a place where all of this happens.

So, for the new and very different part.  Amanda was on Tumblr last week, an experience that was very frustrating because Tumblr is confusing for someone who is used to the WordPress interface.  Anyway, this awesome book questionnaire meme was found and we instantly thought we should get it going around.

All 55 questions are below and there are a couple of different ways it can work:

  • If you have a blog of your own, comment with questions for us and and let us know that shared the meme on your blog too and we will go to your blog and ask you questions!
  • If you don’t have a blog, comment with the question(s) you want Justine, Amanda, or both us to answer.  We will answer and ask you questions of our own!

Doesn’t this sound fun?! Now, please, so that we don’t feel like complete failures, participate in this super dorky meme with us!
