Random Question: Have you ever stolen insults from books and used them in real life situations?

This seemed like a fun and different muse to try out this week. I get a lot of very amusing insults in the historical fictions I read and The Dresden files tend to have ones that make me laugh out loud. The other day I found myself actually using one from the Dresden files so I had to ask if anyone else ever used a book insult. I don’t insult people often, really it isn’t polite but sometimes when you are joking around or maybe working out at a Renaissance fair….can always use a good insult to banter with there! I hope I am not he only one who has done this lol, but I accept that I am a bit weird haha.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: How do you experience a book when you read? In general do you often find yourself being drawn into the story quickly or do you need more time to warm up to characters?

I know that often times how we experience a book is based on the book itself, but I have found over the years that I do tend to have general habits towards a book and I thought others might as well. Honestly more times then not I find myself drawn into the world of the book quickly, which is good because I can get impatient with slow starters. I like to jump in with both feet and just try and picture myself a “fly on the wall” in the characters’ lives. How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you like all the holiday books turned to movies this time of year?

I know I have asked similar but as I have been watching a few holiday movies and can’t wait to see the man who invented Christmas it was on my mind. As much as I sometimes can be a bit of a bah-humbug about things I actually enjoy a good holiday movie and even more so if its based on a book or about a book. I am really excited about the man who invented Christmas for example because it’s about the author who did seem to invent Christmas as we know it. It looks heart warming and funny as well which always make for a good spirit lift this time of year. It is so easy to feel downcast this time of year. Happens to all of us once in a while but I think these little sparks of good will and warmth help whatever form they come in.

Okay one random little bit of shop keeping as it were before I jump into this weeks Muse. I have noticed since the take over that while Teaser Tuesday still seems to be doing well and healthy, Musing Monday seems to be getting less and less participation. Now I do not want to seem like I am whining I promise I am not, but I have to ask is there something I could do better? Are the questions to boring or different? Or perhaps it is time to retire this weekly meme? I won’t be offended whatever the answers might be. I do just honestly want to make sure everyone is enjoying the memes. Alright with that out of the way on we go.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you like or dislike series books?

A friend and I talked about this not to long ago, he does not really like series books were I tend to enjoy them because I like spending time with characters I get to know. For me when I get involved in a series that I like I enjoy being able to watch characters grow and spend time with them. Sometimes it can be like spending time with old friends. I can say that I have even mourned when a series ends and I no longer gets to spend time with the characters I have grown to love. So what is your feeling on series books?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What do you think of ghostwriters??

As someone who does a fair amount of ghost writing myself for work I have long wondered what other’s think of them. For my part I try and stick with non fiction work and blog posts, things like that. I have been asked on ocassion to do fiction but most of the time I turn it down because I feel if I am going to write a work of fiction it will be my own. With that being said I know that there are some huge names out there that use ghostwriters. This is going to sound hypocritical because I do writing work but often times I don’t like it. Maybe it is because I do the work that I can generally tell when an author has used a ghostwriter? We all have our own style and even when a ghostwriter tries to copy as close to the ordinal as possible it still to me feels different. This can often ends up with books in the same series feeling like they do not belong together. I won’t automatically stop reading an author if they use a ghostwriter I try to judge books on their content more then anything. What about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Are there any books you really want to see made into Tv shows or movies?

As book readers we see it all the time and have probably even said it ourselves, the book was better. Then we get to enjoy the occasion when they do the book justice on screen. No matter what the screen version and book version of things are always going to be a bit different. There are also, of course way more things based on books than most people notice. I got to pondering though do any other bookers like I occasionally wish a favorite book or book series would be made into something on screen?

I would love to see the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR ward series be made into a screen version. I am sure some of the visuals would be a little tough, but I am game to see what they could come up with! I would also love to see Stephanie Laurens Cynster series brought to the screen. Come on look at the success of Outlander and Poldark! We need the Cynster’s in our lives! Finally,` I would like to see a new and better done version of The Harry Dresden series the Dresden files. I know they did one season, but it was So different from the book and they really changed to many things they don’t seem to be the same source material at all.

How about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you like or dislike memoirs?

I have been watching a number of documentaries or movies based on memoirs as of late and I always end up looking for the books as well if I haven’t read them already. So what do you think of memoirs? I have found in my circle of friends folks either love them or hate them there is no in-between. I enjoy them for the most part though I have read a few that just seemed like self serving drivel, but most of them have been great. So what do you think?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Have you ever read a book that changed your life?

As book lovers we all have books special to us. Maybe it is one that made us fall in love with reading or one that holds special memories. One thing I have not heard anyone talk about often is a book that literally changed their life, changed how they looked at the world. Have you ever had a book like that? I feel like in the fact that I have had a couple of books change things in my life. One of those was Good Grief by Lolly Winston. There was something about that book that reached into me and just shook my core. I can’t really explain it in words but I know it was a life changing book. It is one that I need to go back and read again now that my life has indeed changed so much and see if I can find a way to say how it made me feel better. So how about you?

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What do you do with your non keeper hard copy books?

Hello October! Isn’t the year just flying by? I know it is for me! Whew! So I am sure as book fans we all still have some hard copy, I have a lot really but what do you do with them when you are done? I try to be strict with how many books I actually keep on hand so you have to be a really really good book to get on my hard copy keeper shelf. I used to swap all my books out over on paperback swap. I have not been active over there to much lately so my last batch of books I no longer needed was dropped off at the FOL sale. How about you?
