I saw this 55 Question Book Meme on book-memes.livejournal.com. I was looking at the question when I noticed that I am answering it in my head. So I decided to answer them here. It’s quite a number of questions but the answer doesn’t need to be long. If you want to do it too just copy the questions and answer them.
