Icebreakers for book readers

Would you like some handy conversation questions in a tiny pocket zine? You can print out this one-page PDF made by Jamie Glass. Then fold it up into a little pocket zine. (Found via zinelibraries.info)

These are the icebreaker questions in the zine:

  1. Print books or e-books? [PERSON’S NAME] reads: [ ] Print only [ ] Ebooks only [ ] Both!
  2. If [PERSON’S NAME] was stuck on an island, he would bring this book to read: ____________
  3. Draw a quick portrait of: ____________
  4. The best book [PERSON’S NAME] has read lately was: ____________
  5. [PERSON’S NAME] is excited to work in a library because: ____________
  6. The best book-to-movie/TV adaptation [PERSON’S NAME] has seen is: ____________

Here’s my answers:

  1. Print books or e-books? Matt reads: [x] Both!
  2. If Matt was stuck on an island, he would bring this book to read: Bible. Yes, the Bible. So many stories interconnected. So many perspectives on how to interpret.
  3. Draw a quick portrait of: Since I am typing, I will give this portrait of Spongebob Squarepants: [8^D]|]=
  4. The best book Matt has read lately was: “Rethinking a Lot: The Problems and Pleasures of Having It Both Ways.”
  5. Matt is excited to work in a library because: I work at a content syndicate, has some similarities to a library.
  6. The best book-to-movie/TV adaptation Matt has seen is: I believe I don’t have the combination of having both read the book and seen the movie. I suppose the closest is “Death Star” by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry. Which is really a book based off the movie, not a movie based off a book. But the book fills in many of the plot holes from the movie.
