#BOOKADAYUK: A Fun Twitter Campaign for Book Nerds (1 of 3)

Oh, what fun fellow book nerds! Check out The Borough Press’s June #bookadayuk (formerly #bookaday) Twitter campaign. They ask us silly, daily questions about books we have read, then we share our answers with others on Twitter. I’ve had a late start, but here are my first four answers:

DAY 1: Favorite book from childhood: The Monster at the End of This Book by John Stone

: Best bargain: When I was 17 years old, I picked up a copy of A Prayer for Owen Meany in the bargain bin at Coles. I feel in love with John Irving that day.

DAY 3: One with a blue cover: The first one that jumps to mind is my copy of The Great Gatsby with the iconic cover image.


DAY 4: Least favorite book by favorite author: The WaterMethod Man by John Irving (that was painful to write).

Check my daily tweets for #bookaday @GrandBarda. I hope to read some of your tweets too. Cheers!

      I agree Alena, I felt conflicted too. In the end, we do not love all books equally, even those written by a favorite author. The next bunch of questions aren’t so negative (PHEW!). Thanks for reading!

  1. I didn’t mind The Water Method Man so much, but realized I had outgrown my love affair with John Irving when I tried to read A Son of the Circus. That said, I still think A Prayer for Owen Meany is damn near perfect, but nothing beats The Cider House Rules. Nothing.

    Hey Madhury,

    The Cider House Rules was great too. The movie based on that novel was the best John Irving film adaptation –by far. I’m actually rereading A Prayer for Owen Meany (I read it as a teenager, 20 years ago. I am LOVING it.) Cheers!

      It’s silly but fun. I enjoy reading other people’s answers. I’ll be looking out for your answers, Madhuri! (Note the new hashtag: #bookadayuk).
