We all know burning books is wrong on every level. What contemporary novel (and by contemporary I mean one published in the last 30 years or so) would you put your hand in the fire to save. Tehanu – Ursula Le Guin
Same question but this time what classic would you save from the bonfire? (And you can work out your own definition of classic.) Jude the Obscure – Thomas Hardy
First line: The schoolmaster was leaving the village, and everybody seemed sorry.
And a short story that has lived with you ever since you first read it? All Summer in a Day – Ray Bradbury
Finally, what do you prefer: a real book with pages that move, an ebook, an audio device?
