Re: Time around the world (Tell us what time it is and what you’re doing at this very moment)

It's 01:55 AM HOL time and here it's 03:55 AM. I usually don't sleep at this time. I'm at home and I plan to have macaroni for dinner which is yet to come. I'll go to sleep in 3 hours or so, now I'm watching mysterious videos on YouTube. Maybe not a good idea because my mother's already asleep :D bu...

Re: Where Do You Live?

I live in the northwest part of Russia. I've been born in a big city and studied in another but my true home is in the little town where I live since I was 5 and I'm living there now.

Re: Book Reading Challenges

I'm not really familiar with international challenges so the information that I write is probably useless... but still. I've participated in such a thing that was organised in a community on one of the Russian blogging sites. Each year they hold a challenge and the organizers always come up with som...

Re: How Many Books Do You Read Per Year

I usually read a lot of fanfiction but I read almost no books. This year however, I've read 6 books in a month in my trip to the sea. Books are good when there's no internet :D

Re: Vegans/Vegetarians Unite!

I'm not a vegan and not even a vegetarian, but I'm really close. I have never eaten most meat products, and those which I eat I buy once a month at most. I don't really like them and the thoughts that these things once were a part of a creature that was running or flying around aren't pleasant for m...

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

I haven't reread the books for a while but I'm rewatching the movies right now (and watched the 4th movie for the first time). And the death that saddens me most is Sirius. I think it is the moment when Harry gives up on his happy future whatsoever. Maybe he was a bit naive and didn't know the whole...

Re: Favourite Genre?

I do limit myself, but it's more like I can't read anything but for fantasy and science fiction. It's been like this for a long time, and I rarely break this rule because I'm not interested in anything else. 12 years ago I liked detectives as well and I've read a lot of detectives for children and e...

Re: Doctor Who!

In general, I like Dr Who! But my favourite seasons were those with 9 and 10 Doctors. After 10th rebirth, I stopped watching for a year or more. Then I returned and the first episodes with 11th and Amy were wonderful, I was really surprised how much I liked them. Even though I didn't particularly li...

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I liked this show a lot when it just started and then I stopped watching it when it started to be more of a typical comedy about relationships rather than a comedy about science. I watched 5 or 6 seasons and the last one I watched with big pauses and only when there was nothing else to do. My favour...

Re: Supergirl

Wow. I watched only one episode of Supergirl and I remember being very impressed and then I decided that I should definitely watch the others and forgot about it completely. I'd say it is impressive but not very deep, but maybe it becomes deeper later. I'm not a big fan of movies and series in gener...

Re: Dystopias and Similar

I liked dystopias even before I knew what they are, and it's one of my favourite plots in books (and films and anime). For example, one of my favourite animes "Toward Terra" has such a plot, as does the famous book "Hungry Games" (even though I'm not really into it, and I didn't read the other books...

Re: Film/TV Adaptations

I'm almost always disappointed by the film if I've read the book. So when my favourite books get adapted, I'm excited and frustrated at the same time. :D There were several films which I liked (for example, Harry Potter and that film about Narnia where they travel by sea). I also like adaptations of...

Re: Do authors write stories, or do they write themselves?

Well. First of all, I think that it is much easier to continue a story than it is to start and finish it correctly. If the author knows the characters well, the story might be endless, finishing only with their death, and there is no way to stop the characters that want to tell their stories unless ...

First of all, I wouldn't say that I'm a HP fan. Of course I like the books, and I've reread them a lot of times, and I watched all the films except the 4th (the disc with it that my mother's friend gave us had so low quality that we weren't able to see anything and then we gave up, and it somehow di...

Re: Whose Stone is it Anyway?

Wow. To be honest, I didn't know about that. In my country, it was Philosopher's Stone, and I didn't see any discussions connected to this fact. I think that even young children might have heard about the Philosopher's Stone before reading the book, it is common knowledge and people often tell this ...

Re: Abandoned Books

I always abandon the things I don't like, because I think that life is too short to waste it on such things. I remember some of the reasons. For example, when people whom I like and want to know them better, recommend me books, I try to read them. Sometimes it's impossible however. One of such books...

Re: Ebooks vs Print

I usually buy books in paper when I want to thank the author. I don't make a collection of them and I usually just give them to friends when I'm done reading them. I've got a number of favorite authors and always buy their books in paper.
Other than that, I usually read e-books. It's more convenient.
