(-Waoh! it's hypermodern! Rich! as light as a computer; there's no loading time, and it works without a power point...And how do call that?
- A book!)
My friend Kenza tagged me!
I'd like some of my readers to choose at least ONE question (more if you want..)and answer to it.
I really hope some of you will do!
And now for me, a good exercise of translation..
Do you bend the page or use a bookmark?
I love and collect bookmarks. I always buy some everywhere I travel. I've more than 600 of them..
Did you already receive a book as gift?
Plenty. I always write a title or more on my Christmas and birthday lists.
Did you already think about writing a book?
I wrote one.And have plenty of others in my head.
Do you read in your bath?
Never. I love books and they don't like water.
Have you a cult book?
"The solace of open space", by Gretel Ehrlich; A book that contains a lot of pieces of writings of Chateaubriand. And some others.
Do you like to read a book several times?
Sometimes. And a long time after the first reading.
What do you think about stories published in several tomes?
I don't care, if the story is good.
Do you like to meet the writers who wrote the books you love?
Most of the writers I love are dead. I like to read writers' biographies. I think that I prefer to keep a distance, a mystery;But I had the chance to cross the way of J.M.G. le Clezio, the last Nobel price; I kept a secret admiration and never talked to him. I did not want to disturb him.
How do you choose your books?
The country where it comes from, the writer, the story, the advice of my best friend, who knows exactly what I like.
A reading you'd like to hide?
I like comics..Is it bad?
The perfect book for you would be...
A magic book, in which I could enter each time I feel bad, where I could find all my favorite stories and characters, and that would protect me against the outside world.
Do you like to speak about what you read?
Yes, with people who also like to read.
The best place to read a book?
Almost everywhere. But a comfortable bench, near the sea, with a light breeze..
Television, video games or books?
Don't even ask it ! Books
To read in silence, with music, or it does not matter?
To read above a shoulder?
No. Reading is a lone pleasure.
To read an electronic book?
For me, an electronic book is not a book. A book offers the touching of the paper, the special smell, the light sound of the turning pages..
Do you buy or borrow the books you read?
I buy them. Except from the art books or the very expensive ones, I always write on my books. I like to underline words or quotes, answer to the things, etc.. And I always keep the books I love, which means a lot of problems of anarchic storages.
To read and eat at the same time?
Why not, if the thing I'm eating is not dangerous for my books.
What do you read now, and what will you read after?
I recently discovered a beautyful collection , edited by Mercure de France, whose name is " The taste of.."
Each book presents several pieces of great writers speaking about a town. I just read " A taste of Berlin", and I'm reading now "The taste of Rome".Then , I will read a book called "The long falling", written by Keith Ridgway, an irish writer (I like irish litterature very much)
After this loooong translation, I really hope that one of you will accept to answer to one of those questions! Ü
Have a good day!
