Which one do you use more: the library or Amazon/bookstores?
(Online) bookstores! I mostly read in English an my local libraries don't have many English books, therefore I buy what I need.
How many books do you own?
I've never counted them. Altogether in our flat there are hundreds of books (my father is an avid reader too).
How do you organize your bookshelves: rainbow or alphabetically? If you have a Kindle/iPad, do you categorize your ebooks?
Mostly I organize it by book size and writer or topic (e.g.: my Shakespeares are next to each other, also I have a collection of books about the son of Napoleon, the Duke of Reichstadt, those are together as well).
I categorize my ebooks by genre.
Are you on Goodreads? What’s your user name?
What’s your relationship with John Green?
I love the guy, even though I haven't read any of his books yet. I've watched his and Hank's videos. They are funny and thoughtful.
Are you religious?
I'm Roman Catholic, although I don't frequent the church any more (I went regularly until I was 18).
What’s your favorite kind of cover: simplistic, hand-drawn, or photographed?
There are many different things that can draw me in a cover. From these listed above, I'd say I prefer the simplistic ones.
Do you follow book ‘trends’?
I read what I'd like to read, it depends on my mood, not on the trend.
Do you have a local bookstore?
Sure, I do. With lots of Hungarian books in it and few English ones.
Do you read comics? Do you consider them ‘books’?
I want to start reading comics. I haven't read any so far. I might start with Saga, because the art seems pretty in that one. And yes, I consider them books.
Have you ever bought a book for its cover alone? Which one?
Yes! The book is called The Outcast (by Sadie Jones). I bought it, because the man and the woman on the cover reminded my of Tom Hiddleston and Rachel Weisz from the movie 'The Deep Blue Sea' which I adore. In the end I liked the story too, in spite of the fact that it was very depressive.
