The sound of silence: When reading, do you assign each character their own voice in your head, or do they all sound the same? Do they sound like you or someone else?My Answer:
I think it really depends on the book, but I think, generally, good dialog should bring to mind different voices for different cadences. Not necessarily the sound of a voice, but the speed at which the character speaks, the cadences present in their voice... speech includes so many mannerisms individual to the person speaking so I think it is (delightfully) unavoidable in a well written book.
Are you thankful for a fellow blogger? Tell us about him or her.
The answer to this question is both hard and simple at the same time. I'm thankful for all the bloggers I've met... and there are a lot. I hear people talking about book blogger drama all the time, but I've never experienced it. I've made good friends here on the blog that have extended to real life. So I'm thankful for all the bloggers who have become my friends, both via twitter, text, and in person over boars head pasta recommended by a sexy waiter in NYC. I'm thankful for all the bloggers I'm still getting to know who get me excited about books I haven't heard of and books I wasn't sure about. I'm thankful for all the future bloggers who I hope to meet. Book bloggers are fabulous and I'm glad to be one.
