When The Borough Press wrapped up the June #bookadayuk Twitter campaign, they handed over the torch to Doubleday UK. This new team will ask avid readers daily, book-related questions during the month of July. Then, readers will share their answers with others via Twitter. It’s tons of fun. I hope you will join in. Here are my tweets for Week 1 of July’s #bookadayuk:
Day 1: A book that made you laugh out loud: About a Boy by Nick Hornby
Day 2: Fav Fantasy novel: A Feast For Crows. I wanted to throw the book after it crushed my heart, but I was holding my Kindle.
Day 3: Favorite novel in translation: The Shadow of the Wind Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Day 4: Favorite American novel: A Prayer for Owen Meany. Learned all about Vietnam (and heartbreak) when reading it as a teen.
Day 6: Wimbledon: A Canadian book to celebrate Eugenie Bouchard’s awesomeness: The Summer of My Amazing Luck by Miriam Toews
Day 7: Most Chocolatey novel: Is there a better one than Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel? Sweet read.
