Stolen from Alison J. and Amy R. who got it from several at Librarything
Favorite childhood book – Shadow Castle, The Secret Garden
What are you reading right now – about 30 books; some for school, some for fun, some because they’re there. Last night, I read for about an hour on Collapse by Jared Diamond.
Bad book habit – reading too many books at once
Do you have an ereader? – I love my kindle
One book at a time or several – many
Least favorite book this year – Five languages of appreciation in the workplace
Favorite book this year – there have been several; how about Woman in White
How often do you read out of your comfort zone? Hmmm, reading itself is my comfort zone. I guess there are certain types of books I’d choose to read less frequently because of time limitations and I just can’t read them all, but that doesn’t mean that they would make me “uncomfortable.” I guess there are topics that would make me squirm. I won’t read graphic violence, for example.
Can you read on a bus – uh-huh. Where can’t I read? In the dark…
Favorite place to read? On the beach, in the shade
Policy on book lending – no, sorry. If I give it to you, it’s for keeps. Otherwise, it’s mine. (exception: my mom, because she always returns them!)
Do you ever dog ear books – Nope. I have a marvelous bookmark collection from RWA!
Do you ever write in the margins of your books – only for school.
Favorite language to read in – English. Duh.
What makes you love a book – characters. A well-done puzzle plot. Beautiful writing.
What will inspire you to recommend a book – anyone brings it (reading, books, basically anything) up, I’m off on a tear.
Favorite genre – I like all kinds of genres, but my go-to for fun is Regency romance.
Genre you rarely read but wish you did – I like memoirs, but there aren’t enough that really catch my attention. Also, I like books about competitions, preferably non-fiction. Don't know what that genre is called.
Favorite biography – Girl Meets God
Have you ever read a self help book – I just read Unfinished Business which is sort of self-help/memoir.
