Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly Meme about books and reading. Today's questions are .

1. What’s your favorite time of day to read?
In the night, before nodding off.

2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)
No.

3. What’s your favorite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)
Maggie 2 minute noodles.

4. How many hours a day would you say you read?
Maybe an hour. If the book is gripping maybe more.

5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?
Less, and more genre specific. Ten years ago I would read anything now I read only Mysteries, occasionally other books.

6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?
I don't know. Speed at which I read a book depends upon the book. Some books before I know I have completed 100 pages. And others I would be reading long hours and not crossed 30 pages.

7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Write the greatest Whodunits in the world.

8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?
Sometimes.

9. What KIND of book?
Mystery, what else?

10. How old were you when you got your first library card?
I borrowed books from my school library and my school didn't issue cards. I give my name and class and borrow a book. Very simple. After finishing school, I got membership in a public library and I got my first library card. I was 17 then.

11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)
I have my Dad's childhood book published 1950's, Treasure Island.

12. Do you read in bed?
All the time.

13. Do you write in your books?
Never

14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?
Read books that you can relate to.

15. What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask? (Actually, leave the answer to this one in the comments on this post, huh? So I can find them when I need inspiration!)
I am not a regular here. Just peek in once in a while, so I don't know all the questions covered. But here is mine Are you sometimes tempted to read the last few pages of the book before finishing it?
