READ THIS NEXT!!! - Jan. 2-9

It's week one.  Each Sunday I will post a new set of questions for the book of the month.  Pick a question and post the answer on any day of the week at your blog (what works for your schedule).  Make sure to add the link below.  If you don't have a blog, the questions are also posted at the READ THIS NEXT!!! group page at Goodreads, click HERE

January Book

How's It work?
  • I will randomly pick a book from one of the 'Themes' listed in Read This Next.  Each month I will post 'the' book -- and it will remain in the right-side bar at Bitsy Bling Books.  
  • If you've read this book please feel free to comment and participate in the meme.  The more the merrier.  If you are reading this book as part of the group/meme I hope you join in -- jump in anytime and make suggestions or add questions in the comment section.
  • Each week I will feature a discussion question for the featured book as a guide.  You can either answer the question, or post anything about the book or author such as a review, bio. ect.  
  • Don't forget to link up!  Below is a linky.  This should take hoppers directly to the specific blog post, not the main page of blogsite.  
Jan. 2-9 Questions:  Answer one of these or post one of your own.  If you post a new question please present it in the 'comments' this way I can add it to the Goodreads discussion.  I want to share what everyone comes up with!

  1. Countess Nadasdy. Is she suppose to represent the infamous Blood Countess, Elizabeth Bathory who married Count Nadasdy. If so, what works about this association with a historical folklore figure. What makes you think this is a 'different' Nadasdy? 
  2. What do you think about the BUR and its role in social progress? 
  3. What do you think about government monitoring in order to bring about social tolerance of outlining groups? Is this good or bad? 
  4. Why hives and clones to describe vampires? What characteristics do they share or not share? Is this fitting or would you choose another insect or animal group to describe them?
