Who is your favorite Stephen King character?

Ben Hanscom. I always really related to and admired how pure his love for Beverly was. When she liked Bill he didn't try to hold on to her or interfere with that, he just wanted her to be happy. That's true love, letting something you love go so it can be free and happy. I just really admire his strength of character, his courage, his skill in architecture, his very soft-spoken but valuable place in the group. I feel like that's being overly analytical of him but I just really like his character.

I read articles before going to sleep. I try to stay away from books before bed because this will only stop me from getting my much needed sleep and it will cause my husband to force me to sleep. LOL! It's all good though I know he just wants me well rested.

I still read books before going to sleep. It's a great way to have your mind slowly shut down and forget about the events that happened during the day. Somehow, I haven't experienced any sleep problems caused by reading books before going to sleep.

I regularly read books before going to sleep and it is often a problem for me because it so happens that I just can't put it down. I limit myself the time, go to bed early, but when the time I set for going to sleep arrives I just can't stop. It's always a few more lines, or just to see what happens next and I end up far past my bed time. But it's worth it, I sleep like a baby.

Well usually i read books whenever i get time these days due to my busy work schedule. Mostly i am able to read books when i am travelling. However,my most favorite time to read books is undoubtedly at night before going to sleep. There is complete silence at the night time and you are able to enjoy thoroughly the experience of reading at this time.

How do you choose a new book to read?

I actually get a decent amount of recommendations from reddit. Although lately I've tried to curb that as there are too many books on here that seemingly everyone suggests that I have not enjoyed all that much. I've found that, for the most part, the Amazon and Goodreads recommendations are pretty accurate though.

In choosing a book to read, I red first the title of the Book. If it captivates my attention or curiosity, I will read that book.

The book cover that is inviting and beautiful can make me to read. It can get me hooked up.

I often read the synopsis/summary first. Then I try to look for decent book reviews. If I like what I read then I'll give it a shot. If by any chance I've read 2 chapters and I still don't get a feel for the book I stop reading it.
jpk0007 - 1 point - 1 month ago
Well i do choose the book that i read through various channels. I mean I prefer to read a book that has good reviews or if someone recommends me to read it. The other thing that i do before choosing the book is to read the brief summary of the book and decide whether the book is worth reading.However, in case of the best and my favorite authors I tend to read there books whenever they are available without going through the Synopsis or reviews.

Favorite romantic movie?

Here is a list of my favorite romantic movies of all time:

The notebook

500 days of summer

A walk to remember

Amelie (French)

Pretty in pink

Sixteen candles

I just watched “life itself” which I thought was really good, definitely not sappy romantic though

My favorite romantic movie is A walk to Remember. Love changes the life of a person.
rubeth26 - 1 point - 1 month ago
I love the movie Titanic. It is an American epic romantic film in 1997... a movie blockbuster indeed. I remember, it was Leonardo diCarpio and Kate Winslet are the main actors in this movie as Jack and Rose and directed by James Cameron. I like the love story, how true love makes sacrifices.
jpk0007 - 1 point - 1 month ago
Well i like to watch romantic movies and i would like to add Pretty Women, Never been Kissed and also Notting hill to the list that you have mentioned in the post. I like the story of Notting Hill. Its a romantic comedy and i like the way the film has been directed. The acting of Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts and the other actors in the film is excellent and you dont feel bored to see the movie even if you see it for the second time.

Creepiest book you read?

Creepiest part of a book I ever read was the chapter 'Riddles In the Dark' from The Hobbit. I first read it when I was eight and I can still vividly remember the part where Bilbo ends up in Gollums cavern/underground lake. The description of it was so terrifying to me. whats yours?

I have not yet read a creepiest book. Its because I am so afraid to read and to imagine about creepy creatures.
dullian - 1 point - 1 month ago
Easily anything by Lovecraft, the fact that he can make intangible things so creepy make the whole deal double creepy! I remember reading stories about characters going crazy just because they happened to come into contact with realities not known to common people.

Favorite classic book?

I read Moby Dick this summer and it wasn’t what I expected (in a good way) , there was more humor in the beginning and it wasn’t as linear as I thought it would be. There were definitely some philosophical stuff in there that was a bit over my head and I don’t think I caught some of the metaphors but several months after reading it I find myself thinking about it more so than most books I’ve read.

Still my Favorite book is the Bible. It is the word of God. Nothing beats this holy and inspirational book ever.

thoughts on Audio book?

The narrators are really quite good. I hope at some point they will be remixed with music and sound effects. I’ve listened to about a hundred Star Wars audiobooks and they all have full scores and effects. Admittedly it’s a different experience than strictly reading, but it does add a layer of engagement in the material.

I also like Audio books. It is another kind of learning experience. It is a great challenge to listen to the speaker very carefully or miss what he or she is talking about.
theresajane - 1 point - 1 month ago
I actually am impressed with Audio books. But, don't personally use it because I am more focused when I read something by myself rather than hearing it from someone or something.
xenekai - 1 point - 1 month ago
Audio books are very helpful specially for those too tired to read and just want to hear the story out. It helps people to have more options. It is also very important specially for those people who has sight impairment or people who cannot read.

best marketing book?

Whether you agree with him or not, Byron Sharp's 'How Brands Grow' has made a significant impact on the industry, and has even influenced major clients to put their agencies up for review. So, definitely check it out.

How to write a book?

Write something. Anything. The hardest part is starting, so I find it helps if you have a scene you want to include and you start by writing that.

Alternatively I've had a particular character I was interested in and I just wrote a random scene with him. It put words together and made the whole process real, making it much easier to flesh out the rest of the story

The approach one would use depends on the genre of the books. Here's how I would write a novel.

Start with a brief outline of the story.

What is the story about? What are the characters goals? What motivates them to seek whatever it is they want? This is the foundation of a good book.

Next step is to flesh out this outline a little. Split up your story into three sections: the beginning, middle and the ending. In each section, list down the main events you expect to drive the story forward.

Next start drafting your story. And keep going until you finish. You'll find out soon enough that the outline you created will be very helpful in this step.
xenekai - 1 point - 1 month ago
Starting is definitely the hardest part of writing a book. But because you said you already have a character in mind, try to revolve your story around it. Discover why that character has that characteristics, what are its backgrounds, where is it from, and etc.,. Work on what you already have and find your way through it.
