This Document originally posted in the "Day by Day" Group

I enjoy quizzes.  I love the kind that get passed around on email - they're so fun and you can learn a lot about your friends! 
However, the questions, as a general rule, seem to be kind of...lame? 
Like, "Do you wish on stars?"  Not very thought provoking or deep or worth asking, in my opinion.
 
So, I decided to come up with my own quiz.  The book lovers quiz!  I'm not sure if there's a certain procedure or protocol that needs to be observed when creating a blog award or tag, but I thought I'd turn this into a tag/award by creating a graphic to go with it...because I love designing graphics:)
 
To participate in this tag, you need to 1) answer the questions in the quiz and 2) tag three of your book loving blogger friends!
  1. Five of your favorite books?
  2. Out of those five books who is your favorite character and why?
  3. What is your favorite time period to read about?
  4. Do you prefer adventure or humor?
  5. Fiction or Non-fiction?
  6. E-book or hard copy?
  7. Hard cover or paperback?
  8. Book(s) you are reading now?
  9. Name the five books you have read most recently.
  10. Favorite author(s)?
  11. In which century were most of the books you read written?
  12. When choosing a book to read are you influenced by the cover?
  13. Which is your favorite G.A. Henty book?
  14. Can’t choose just one?  Name five more.
  15. The one book you will never read again?
  16. In your opinion, the ultimate hero in literature is…
  17. The ultimate gentleman?
  18. The heroine you most wanted to shake some sense into?
  19. Ever wanted to change a character’s name?
  20. Change the ending of a book?
  21. Three favorite non-fiction books?
  22. Name four heroines that you most admire and relate to.
 
And I'm tagging everyone who reads this, since it's just getting started:)
 
.....
 
BTW - since I'm not sure if I'm doing this right, I'd appreciate any advice my readers have to give, including more questions to be added to the quiz! 
 
Have fun!

I can't decide on most of the questions! Oy! What time period? Modern day and whenever 'Little Women' and 'An Old-Fashioned Girl' were written. =)

Your right, most tags are sort of a waist of time. This one looks like fun though. So you will probably see it on my blog as soon as I can think of some answeres :).

I thought I'd just consider myself tagged, too;)
  1. Five of your favorite books?  Only 5?!  Who came up with this tag anyway?  Oh, that's right, I did:}  Let me see...The Scottish Chiefs, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Little Women, Captain Blood, and Aunt Jane's Hero.
  2. Out of those five books who is your favorite character and why?  The Scarlet Pimpernel, aka Sir Percy Blakeney wins hands down, although Jo March runs a very close second.  Sir Percy is the perfect gentleman, he loves is wife, and he's willing to lay down his life to save others.  I've heard, though haven't been able to verify this as a fact, that Sir Percy Blakeney really did exist.  Wouldn't that be awesome?!
  3. What is your favorite time period to read about?  Hrm...the early American frontier, Revolutionary War, French Revolution...but I'll read pretty much anything set in any time period:)
  4. Do you prefer adventure or humor?  I prefer a delightful mixture of both, but it's so rare that you find a truly thrilling adventure with good humor.
  5. Fiction or Non-fiction?  I'll read both, but prefer historical fiction - historical events and characters, mixed with fictional characters.
  6. E-book or hard copy?  No doubt about it, ebooks are handy, but I prefer the real thing:)  I also love audiobooks.
  7. Hard cover or paperback?  Hardcover, but I read paperback, too:)
  8. Book(s) you are reading now?  Oh dear - The Pioneers (James Fenimore Cooper), Aunt Jane's Hero ( Elizabeth Prentiss), Simple Secrets to a Beautiful Home (Emilie Barnes), the Bible, Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson), and misc. devotions.
  9. Name the five books you have read most recently.  Captain Blood (Rafeal Sabatini), The Horse and His Boy (C.S. Lewis), Little Men and Jo's Boys (L.M. Alcott), and The Last of the Mohicans (James Fenimore Cooper)
  10. Favorite author(s)?  G.A. Henty, L.M. Alcott, Jane Austen, L.M. Montgomery, James Fenimore Cooper, James Herriot, Baroness Orczy and others...
  11. In which century were most of the books you read written? 19th century
  12. When choosing a book to read are you influenced by the cover?  Sometimes - I'm more likely to read a book that has a pretty, well designed cover.  However, the story inside is what's most important.
  13. Which is your favorite G.A. Henty book?  In Freedom's Cause
  14. Can’t choose just one?  Name five more.  Hehe, I love this question;)  The Young Carthaginian, In the Reign of Terror, Rujub the Juggler, Winning His Spurs, and The Cornet of Horse.
  15. The one book you will never read again?  The Hand of Sir Robin Squires - I like pirate stories, but this was just too gruesome!
  16. In your opinion, the ultimate hero in literature is…definitely Sir Percy Blakeney!
  17. The ultimate gentleman?  Mr. Knightly - I wish there were more men like you.
  18. The heroine you most wanted to shake some sense into?  Anne, in Anne of the Island - she was so blind!
  19. Ever wanted to change a character’s name?  Sometimes I wish there was a nice character named Edith - all of the ones so far have either been mean, silly, or both.
  20. Change the ending of a book?  Yes!  I would totally change the ending of The Last of the Mohicans!  Poor brave Uncas!  Poor gentle Cora!  I always cry...
  21. Three favorite non-fiction books?  Hmm, well, the Bible :), um, Storey's Guide to Raising Sheep, and I guess our World Book Encyclopedia set.
  22. Name four heroines that you most admire and relate to.  Jo March, Elizabeth Bennet, Kate from Stepping Heavenward, and Millie Keith.  Jo March and Kate because of their quick tongues and tempers and how they conquer them.  Elizabeth Bennet because of her quick wit, and Millie Keith for everything that she is and stands for.
 
Wow, that took a while to get through!  Some of those questions were a bit hard, but I wanted to make the people taking it really think.

Hehe, I love #14 too;)
 
What about Edith from St. George for England?  She is a splendid heroine!  Surely you forgot about her. . . =)
 
Fun stuff=)
 
Love always,

As a matter of fact, I did:)
I haven't read that one for awhile...maybe I should read it again=)
 
There's also Edith of Scotland, which is where I got the name from in the first place.
 
Lovingly,
~Edith~
 
P.S. Let's just hope I take after those Ediths, and not the mean, silly ones...;)
