what happens next

So I came up with 30 fun book related questions. Feel free to send in some numbers. :)

1) If you could travel to one place you’ve read about in a book, what place would you visit and what book was it from?

2) If you could be best friends with an author, who would you choose and why?

3) Is there a quote from a book that has inspired you/changed the way you view things? If so, what is the quote?

4) If you could marry a fictional character, which would it be?

5) If you could take out a character from a book, who would you want to get rid of? Keep in mind getting rid of a character could change the story completely.

6) Have you ever read a book where you needed more answers and wanted to kill the author for leaving it so open ended? Or do you like that kind of book? What book was it?

7) If you could make sweet sweet love to a fictional character, with who would it be? Okay, that sounds really messed up, but whatever.

8) What’s the coolest name you have ever seen in a book? Would you name your offspring after said fictional character?

9) Who would you cast as the main characters of a movie adaptation of your favourite book?

10) What’s your favourite classic novel?

11) Can you anagram your favourite author’s name/the title of your favourite book?

12) What was your favorite picture book as a kid?

13) Do you buy your own books, borrow books from your friends or get them from the library?

14) Have you ever stolen insults from books and used them in real life situations? If so, how did that work out for you?

15) What’s your favourite insult from a book?

16) Have you ever tried writing a letter/ emailing an author? Did they reply?

17) Do you have a stack of books you need to read? How many are there?

18) How many books (approximately) do you own?

19) Are there any songs that make you think of certain books or scenes from books? If so, which songs/books?

20) Can you name 5 characters whose names start with the letter H off the top of your head? If so, prove it.

21) Do you like the idea of e-readers/kobos/whatever they’re called or would you rather have the physical book in your hand?

22) Do you like new book smell? Old book smell? All book smell?

23) Do you sticky note passages/quotes?

24) Have you ever accidentally destroyed a book (Example: Ran over it with your car) How about purposefully?

25) Which would you rather live without? Books or chocolate. Just kidding, that’s an impossible question.

26) Do you use actual bookmarks to mark your place? Receipts? Sticky notes? Or do you, heaven forbid, dog ear the pages?

27) What was the worst thing you’ve ever done to someone who lost/destroyed/got spaghetti on the pages of one of your books?

28) Have you ever used a book as a coster? How do you even spell that? You guys probably know what I’m talking about anyway.

29) What's your favourite book turned movie?

30) Have you ever finished a book that rendered you so emotionally unstable you couldn’t start another one for a few days?

“I need a God who is bigger and more nimble and mysterious than what I could understand and contrive. Otherwise it can feel like I am worshipping nothing more than my own ability to understand the divine.”

'I have a dream. I persist in dreaming it, although it has often seemed to me that it could never come true. I dream of a home with a hearth-fire in it, a cat and dog, the footsteps of friends — and you!'

“Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.”

For Canada Molson put their beer fridge all over the world again, but this time, instead of scanning your passport, you need to sing O Canada correctly.  

This is possibly one of the most Canadian things EVER

You definitely know you’re Canadian when you watch this you wonder if the fridge opens for the original French lyrics as well.

“It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.”
