Pooky's Pop Quiz

I found Pooky's Quiz over at Hermione's and couldn't resist joining in.

1. Have you read 50 Shades of Grey? Have you read the other two books in the trilogy?
No, haven't read it (or the other two books) I downloaded it free onto my Kindle ready for my summer beach/pool read but to be honest I don't think I'll bother.

2. Have you read any other spanking fiction.
Oh yes definitely.

3. Did you start reading them before or after 50 Shades?
Well before.

4. Where do you find the best books?
Depends on the type of book I want to read usually Amazon and Lulu. I haven't bought a book from a store in a while as I love my Kindle.

5. Have you ever written any spanking fiction?
I find spanking fiction extremely hard to write but I have written one or two. You can read them here and here. I much prefer writing about my own true life spankings.

6. Do you follow Pk's Fantasy Fridays? Have you ever written for her?
I never miss PK's FF's. I think it's wonderful that so many writers are so generous to send PK stories she can share with us and yes I have written a couple of things.

7. Have you Read Clint's Bootcamp Book? Did you participate in it after you purchased it?
Nope and nope.

8. Are you a reader in real life? How serious?
I love to read, always have. As as child you would often find me sitting in a corner somewhere with my nose in a book. Enid Blyton's Famous Five was one of my favourites. Now I tend to read more during winter than the summer months.

9. Do you generally purchase your reading material, check it out at the library, or borrow from a friend?
As I said I haven't bought a book from a bookstore in a long while and prefer to download and read on my Kindle. I've bought a couple of second hand books from one of the girls in our office building. She was selling them to make money for a local charity. Son said he would give me War & Peace to read but I passed on it:)

10. Are you more likely to leave a review if you loved the book or hated it?
I never think of leaving a review but if I did I would give a real honest opinion even if I didn't like it.

It seems all bloggers are big readers.

Aren't you fortunate(?) to have downloaded 30 Shades for free. I paid a few dollars for the first book,but will wait till I get through it, if ever, before I decide if I want to pay for the others.


Dee said...

Ah I totally loved Enid Blyton. Books from childhood are very special.

Enjoyed reading your answers, Ronnie.

We all seem to be avid readers. I guess that's why we blog and read other bloggers - we just can't get enough

Reading and writing seems to be the the connection! I love reading everyone's answers.

Christina said...

Thanks for sharing, Ronnie!

Blondie said...

Sometimes I really wish I had a Kindle. But I love the feel and the smell of books, specially old ones. Thanks for sharing. I read the first book and the other two are still in the box untouched. Waiting for a moment when there is nothing else to read.

ronnie said...

Hermione - It was only available to download free for 1 day. I wonder if you will read the others. Thanks Hermione.

Dee - Very special. I wished I had kept my copies. Thanks Dee.

SNP - Thanks SNP.

SG - Yes I suppose if we wern't readers we probably wouldn't be bloggers:) Thanks SG.

Joey - Thanks for stopping by.

Minelle - We bloggers sure love to read. Thanks Minelle.

Christine - Thank you. My pleasure.

Blondie - I know what you mean. I think you would really like the Kindle if you had one.

Still think you would enjoy the first in the Shades of G....I limped through the second and gave up on the third.Yep, I've always got a book on the go and listen to lots of Radio 4 too.Don't want to go loosing my marbles/zest for life and start joining WI and suchlike.Have you got a bookgroup going at work? Equally mixed feelings about the olympics BTW....we watched the torch go through...but the man who carried it and has done lots of charity work was rather eclipsed by the Coca Cola and Barclays Bank leaves me kind of uneasy.

Lea said...

I'm surprised that you say you find writing spanking fiction difficult because you sure are good at it!

ronnie said...

Sarah - I might change my mind when I have a glass of sangria in my hand sitting by the pool (if we ever get there:))

I know exatcly what you mean about the sponsors but they do plough so much money into these events. Shame it has to be like that as some of smaller business just don't get a look in. Did you get the kids to ring bells this morning?

No book club and to be honest I don't think I would want to join with some of the people in our office building. Thanks Sarah.

Lea - Aw thanks so lovely of you to say so. I really do find it hard takes me ages to write a fiction story. I've been trying to do one for PK for ages.

We had to rush out and about...but we've watched the opening ceremony again today....kind of thing you have to watch twice to try and make sense of it all. VG...and the queen and Rowan Atkinson had us all in pleats.All in all feeling abit less grumpy about it which not a bad thing as Peter is smitten.Sarah,LD,UK

ronnie said...

Glad the opening ceremony perked you up a bit, same here. Yep old Queenie, Bond and Rowan had us in stitches. Good for the Queen.

Thanks Sarah.
