The Book Meme

I have been googling around and compiling this list of meme questions the last few days and I'm posting it now for those of you who are participating in the book group from a distance, or just addicted to memes. It's heavily sci-fi/fantasy/horror based but if you feel like taking the meme please link back to the group. I hope you have fun filling it out. ~ Apryl
