Designers & Books originally published this questionnaire in 2013, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the publication of the first volume of In Search of Lost Time. There are 25 questions in all, and this week I’d like to share my answers to the final five with you.
21. The current location of the book you will read next: bedside table
22. Your favorite format for books: paper or pixels: Paper, especially for picture books, but I like pixels, too (especially for reading treasures from Project Gutenberg).
23. If you could have written any book: Something that has had played a positive role in elevating children’s literature to a valid field of academic study, although I prefer to have edited it.
24. A book that was particularly meaningful to, or highly recommended by, an acquaintance of yours: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
25. If you have the chance to plan it, the last book you’ll read: Anne of Green Gables; it’s my favorite “tomorrow-is-always-fresh-with-no-mistakes-in-it” book.
