BTT: Two for the Price of One

With only a few more BTTs to go before I finally catch up, I've decided to step up the pace and provide two in one (particularly because I don't have much to say on the first one!)

(From 14 February 2008): Have you ever fallen out of love with a favorite author? Was the last book you read by the author so bad, you broke up with them and haven’t read their work since? Could they ever lure you back?
No, I can't say that I've ever given up on an author. I've certainly given up on authors after just one book (Paulo Coelho, I'm looking at you), but I've never given up on a favourite author. They've never let me down!

(From 21 February 2008): All other things (like price and storage space) being equal, given a choice in a perfect world, would you rather have paperbacks in your library? Or hardcovers? And why?
Hmm, both have their advantage and disadvantages. Hardbacks would probably last longer but are also heavier and more awkward to hold when reading. Paperbacks are more disposable (although I tend to look after mine pretty well) but they are also lighter and easier to hold.

Hardbacks are probably more likely to come in one size (height-wise) than paperbacks. Or are they? I'm not that familiar with them. But if so, they'd certainly look nicer on the shelves than a hodge-podge collection of different-sized paperbacks. I guess looks aren't that important though...I guess the answer is paperback!

Boo! Found your blog and thought I would return the comment.

Being a bookworm I'll come back to your blog and visit it regularly. (Also, I see from your profile you're in Sydney - I have family there. Small world, isn't it)?

I'm a big fan of Paulo Coelho! You will love this! He's the first best-selling
author to be distributing for free his works on his blog:

Have a nice day!
