As ever some of my answers went on line but here I do think about them all...
1st: Favourite book about books and/or bookshops
Torn between 84 Charing Cross Road and the fabulous Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society both are contenders for desert island books.
2nd: Favourite book set in a school (Back to School)
Again two choices - stand alone novel is R F Delderfield's To Serve Them All My Days but my favourite series would be the Chalet School books by EM Brent-Dyer.
3rd: Best Home Front novel (declaration of WW2)
Eeek so hard to chose for this one as I read a lot of wartime fiction, I think that Goodnight Mister Tom might win here.
4th: The book you bought for the cover
I love the Persephone books and am always seduced by the look and blurb, although not all of them turn out to be as suitable for me as I'd hoped.
5th: The book you bought despite the cover
Probably anything in my collection with the film cover as the book is always better, I really need to get a traditional version of Anne of Green Gables!
6th: Favourite book of short stories
Collections by Katherine Mansfield or Mollie Panter-Downes win through here.
7th: Favourite fictional monarch (Elizabeth 1st birthday)
At the moment I'm quite taken with Henry VI as portrayed in Conn Iggulden's Wars of the Roses novels.
8th: Favourite literary dinner party
Not a dinner party as such but the feasts described in the Redwall books by Brian Jacques always made my mouth water.
9th: Literary crush
It changes all of the time but one of the first I can remember is Peter from Heidi - I wanted to run barefoot on the mountain and eat bread and cheese for lunch.
10th: A book that gave you hope
I think the books written by Holocaust survivors fit the bill here, to come through such an experience and then write about it without hate gives me hope.
11th: Best book recommended by a librarian
I can't remember if it was actually a recommendation or an anti-recommendation but I know I lread and oved This is All: The Pillowbook of Cordelia Kenn after talking about it with a librarian
12th: Favourite Austen character (Austen Festival)
Shhh! Don't tell anyone but I've not read any of Austen's works.
13th: Favourite Roald Dahl character (Roald Dahl Day)
Matilda - the girl who made reading cool!
14th: Character most like you
Oh dear lord - I hope there isn't one out there, it would be a very dull book.
15th: Favourite Agatha Christie story (Christie’s birthday)
I've only read a couple but I did enjoy And then there were none but my copy had the original title!
16th: Favourite picture book
Diary of a Wombat is my all time favourite but for reading aloud then currently it is Chu's Day by Neil Gaiman.
17th: Favourite literary detective/policeperson
Not a favouite genre of mine but I liked Alan Grant in Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey.
18th: Favourite coming-of-age book
Never entirely sure what compromises a coming-of-age book but I do like Andre Aciman's Call Me By Your Name.
19th: Favourite seafaring novel (Talk Like a Pirate Day)
Think this one has to be The Cruel Sea.
20th: Favourite literary friendship
In fiction then I think the friendship portrayed in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants novels is great. In real life I loved reading the accounts of Vera Brittain's friendship with Winifred Holtby.
21st: A book to turn someone into a reader (International Literacy Day)
This is a very personal thing and you need to know about a person before you can do this well but I know that Journey to the River Sea and The President's Hat have gone down well when I've shared them.
22nd: Best book recommended by a bookseller (Bookseller's Association conference)
Recently this was Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore which I'd never have picked up without the recommendation.
23rd: Favourite prize-winning book
Captain Coreilli's Mandolin
24th: Something to do with Gatsby/Fitzgerald/20s (F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birthday)
Both the opening and closing lines from Gatsby are memorable and ones I've used in literary quizzes.
25th: A book recommended by your parents
We share books all of the time but as a child mum gave me her childhood copies of Heidi and Little Women, and I had my dad's copy of Black Beauty.
26th: Favourite poetry collection (TS Eliot’s birthday)
Not a huge poetry fan but do like Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats and some collections of WW1 poetry.
27th: Book set in your favourite country to visit (World Tourism Day)
My favourite destination changes all of the time but I guess Birds Without Wings would be a desert island book and thus counts here.
28th: Favourite literary troublemaker
Paddington Bear although of course he doesn't mean to be causing trouble!
29th: The book that made you question everything
I don't think I've come across one that made me question everything...
30th: The best book you read this month.I think that this will be Helen Macdonald's H is for Hawk as I have recommended it to so many people.
