I read this absolutely hilarious article from The Huffington Post today and I just had to share it with you all. The writer gives tips on how to make a relationship last when going through the many trials and tribulations a relationship goes through over time — the most tumultuous being combining one another’s books.
Guaranteed all you book readers out there are nodding your head, smiling, thinking how accurate this assessment is. And all you non-readers out there are shaking your head in disbelief, with incredulous expressions on your faces (at this point I ask you what the heck you’re doing on a book-lovers blog?)
If you’re living with a fellow bookworm, how do you sort out the bookshelves? Do Rebecca Schinsky’s tips make sense to you or not? I personally agree with the sorting with no pants — sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
This is just for kicks, because I honestly don’t know what the shortest “Adult” novel I’ve ever read is. So let’s just go with this chapter book. I read Gotta Dance in Grade 2, so you know how short it must be. The printing is large, the pictures larger. But still, I loved it. I grew up on The Berenstain Bears, so the books can do no wrong in my eyes. Guaranteed I’ll be raising my kids on this series.
What’s the shortest novel you’ve ever read?
I think it’s safe to say that the longest book I’ve ever read was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I mean, I could be wrong, but that one came into my mind first. I remember when I first bought it the night it came out, I couldn’t help marveling at the size of it. But I still got it finished within a few days. There are some books, like Jane Eyre that seemed like the longest, but upon Googling the length of it, I found out it’s considerably shorter than even the 5th installment of Harry Potter.
What was the longest book you’ve ever read?
Apparently these lines.
Entertainment Weekly compiled a list of the top 20 best last words. I agree with a lot of them, like The Great Gatsby, The Sun Also Rises, Animal Farm, Sula, A Tale of Two Cities, Rebecca, Gone With the Wind, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Goodnight Moon. One thing that I did notice that wasn’t mentioned was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. “All was well” is one of the most infamous three words now, and we’ve got J.K. Rowling to thank for that. I know I sound like a major Potterhead now, but I’m just pointing out an observation.
What are your favourite last words?
