Weekend Question?






Weekend Question is a fun way to get to know my followers. I enjoy knowing little tidbits of your lives.





Weekend Question:

Is there one book that you could recommend to a non-reader that it might convert them?


   I can't say there is any book in specific. It would also depend on age and a lot of other factors. I wish I could think of a book so great but right now my lil one is screaming for chocolate milk.  So tell me your converting book!

Hm, too hard. There are many but to give to a non-reader..nope, I mean if I gave fantasy and it is a person that hates stuff like that. So dunno

Right at this moment, my choice would have to be A Discovery of Witches, which is like a cross between The Outlander series, The Harry Potter books, and the Twilight books. It was amazing, and it would get any sane adult reading! This was a great question, Liz, and gave me time to burble about my new favorite book!

It would depend on the person. I did recommend The Hunger Games to my cousin and now she loves reading dystopian.

Definitely the Best American Non-required Reading series. It's a collection of different kinds of writing/stories. Comics. Short stories. Non-fiction essays. Screenplays. Lists. Etc. It's got a little bit of everything, so I'm sure a non-reader will find something!

I usually recommend Outlander, as it has a little something for everyone. I also recommend they stop with that one and ignore the rest of the series, as the first book was so good!

The Hunger Games! I have recommended it to so many different people :)

That's a tough question. I might say Emma by Jane Austen for people who love to watch romance movies. ;)

I'm with you ... it would depend on the person I'm recommending the book. I would also consider their tastes in entertainment as well.

Gregory wasn't a big reader until he started reading Cinda Williams Chima books and also the Skullduggery Pleasant series. I liked them too so I think they're good for both girls and boys. It all depends but these worked for him!

Oh goodness! This is a toughie ... see, I always say that I love reading {and I do!} but just seem to run out of time each day to really get into a book. Boo me :) Can't wait to read some of the suggestions here :)

I didn't do a Weekend Question post this week, so I'll just answer this here. I had to think long and hard about this, but I think I would have to say Twilight. I was introduced to the series about 3 or so years ago by a coworker and prior to that I had really lost my passion for reading. After I read Twilight, I knew I had to read the rest of the series. I also had never read any paranormal romance or anything like that prior to Twilight, so that that sparked my love for my now favorite genre. So I think it could spark some people into developing a love for reading. Also, The Hunger Games series was really amazing, so that would be a good choice too.
