Of books and, well, books (2)

Weeeeell, now... it looks like I've been tagged again, this time by Denisa, aka Anotimpuri Colorate, with a second part of questions about books; let's see now...

1. What book/author would you regard as THE ONE?
Well now, I'm tempted to say the ONE book would be The Holy Bible. But that ain't a book.
At least not as I imagine books look like. I do remind you I will only be talking about books that fall under the category "Beletristics". Which kinda rules The Bible out.
Therefore, THE ONE book I would put in a picture frame would most probably be DUNE by Frank Herbert. You can probably note I'm mentioning the same book over and over again... Well, if you haven't read it yet, let me tell you that book (well, the whole collection actually) provides everything you would want to find inside the covers: you've got religion, supernatural (=/= religion), or better said "mysticism", adventure, science fiction, love, hate, descriptions of an entire world, what am I saying, of an entire universe, with all the actions and feelings that it could contain.

2. Are there books you consider you could have written them better? If you're an author, do you believe yourself to be a good one?
I believe I would have liked to change some of the books I've read. But that's nonsense. Would Robin Hood feel better if I hadn't let him die? Muad'Dib would have probably been the Ruler of Arrakis from the first book and would have never lost it to the evil Harkonnen, the Prince would have stayed a Beggar, Aladdin would have probably met Jasmine earlier... or not at all.... So, no, I don't believe anyone could have written a book better than the original author.
I'm not a writer per se. I just write from time to time. I don't care if I'm good at it or not, for me it's enough to see I've got at most 10 readers that actually read and comment my writings.

3. Is there a book or an author that you wouldn't criticise?
Well, in my opinion to "criticise" means to say something about it whether it's good or bad, so the answer would be no. If you mean "speaking against" - I would probably not criticise people who have the same ideas or concepts as I have. But even then, I like to tease, to challenge for the development of ideas...

4. Have you ever participated in celebrating a book or an author?
Eeeerrrr... vague question, but I do think the answer would be NO...

5. Do you believe Romanian literature is worthy of being appreciated?
Like... DUUUH!!! Of course!

6. Have you ever thrown away a book? Would you throw away books?
Hmm... only if they are no longer readable... Meaning worn covers, torn pages...
But that would also mean I would need to replace them with newer copies...

7. Have you ever sold a book? Would you sell books?
Are you mad??? At best, I would give away a book...
I'm pretty possessive with my belongings :D :P Especially the books...

8. Have you ever stolen a book? Would you steal a book?
Err... not that I remember... and no, I wouldn't steal a book...
I'd rather buy it... It's a sign of appreciation toward the author...
That's probably why I also started going to the cinema instead of downloading movies... :D

9. Have you criticised a book or an author without knowing the book or the author?
Really can't understand this question...
I do suppose it means "have you talked about a book/author you haven't read".
Sometimes I do that, if the people I'm talking to have read it and/or know my general ideas and concepts.
But most of the times I'd rather read a book before saying something for or against it.

10. Have you ever impersonated the creation of other people (blogging)?
No.
When I've used quotes, I've always mentioned the source.
