I found the tag here and I thought meh why not:
Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up the book in the first place?
Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. Was (still am) interested in popular science.
Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy but did. Why did you read it in the first place?
John Grisham’s A Time to Kill. Was intrigued by the premise.
Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick up a book at random. How did you discover this book?
James Corbett’s England Expects: A History of the England Football Team. Discovered in a thrift store; bought because I love football.
Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?
Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Loved it.
Pick a book you discovered through book blogs. Did it live up to the hype?
Mia Alvar’s In The Country. Yes.
Find a book on your shelves with a one word title. What drew you to this book?
Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. Is popular among lit kids; has one of the best opening lines.
What book did you discover through a film/TV adaptation?
Koushun Takami’s Battle Royale (translated into English by Nathan Collins).
Think of your all-time favorite books. When did you read these and why did you pick them up in the first place?
Two of many: Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and Edgar B. Maranan’s Sa Mga Kuko ng Liwanag. Lent to me by older high school roommates; read for the first time during sem-break of first year high school.
