From joannemerriam

1. Favourite book:

Keri Hulme's The Bone People is an all-time favourite. My favourite recent book is probably Geoff Ryman's Air. Favourite not necessarily adult books: anything by either Diana Wynne Jones (I'm currently reading her latest, The House of Many Ways) and Robin McKinley (I loved Dragonhaven).

2. Favourite movie:

King of Hearts is an all-time favourite. My favourite recent movie is Once.

The gnomes in a weird European cartoon I saw once when I was about 8 and never saw again.

Teal. Yes, I know it's now out of fashion. I love greens and blues, and so mixing them, well, I love it.
