Booking Through Thursday


But enough about interviewing other people. It’s time I interviewed YOU.

1. What’s your favorite time of day to read?

Late afternoon, when the sun is falling.

2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)

I do, Sometimes the book world news on the computer, other times whatever book I have on hand.

3. What’s your favorite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)

Cereal or oatmeal.

4. How many hours a day would you say you read?

Hmm. About four or five.

5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?

I am 26, so I definitely have more time now than I did when I was 16 and in an arts high school that took up all of my time.

6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?

I do read pretty quickly, about a book a week.

7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Mindreading, for sure.

8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?

Oh, yes, sometimes two.

9. What KIND of book?

Fiction. Whatever I happen to be immersed in at the moment, even if it weighs 10 pounds.

10. How old were you when you got your first library card?

I was about ten.

11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)

I have a copy of Edgar Allan Poe's The Golden Bug that is from 1910.

12. Do you read in bed?

Every night.

13. Do you write in your books?

I am very messy with my books. I write everything from comments about the plot, to lists for the supermarket.

14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?

Read all kinds of books. Even those that you think wouldn't interest you. You never know what will inspire you.
