I saw this Q&A on Dewey’s blog the other day and had to borrow it.
What are you reading right now? I’m still reading Don Quixote, obviously at a very slow pace as I’m only on page 140. My other book is Sacred Cows by Karen E. Olson which is my last book in the Summer Mystery Reading Challenge. I first found out about this book because Karen has been kind enough to stop by my blog and comment. Then I read Literary Feline’s review of her book and I just knew it was time for me to read it too.
Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that? I honestly don’t know right now. It’ll depend what mood I’m in when I pick up my next book.
What magazines do you have in your bathroom right now? None. No space in the bathroom for magazines. Just stuff from Origins.
What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read? Hmm, how about those math word problems. Seriously I hated those.
What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone? Love in the Time of Cholera.
Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they? They do. I know several librarians and if I stop in at the library and they are there that means my visit is going to be a lengthy one as I have to chat with them for a while before I get to the books.
Is there a book you absolutely love, but for some reason, people never think it sounds interesting, or maybe they read it and don’t like it at all? I know I’ve recommended Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man to a lot of people but either they never read it or they do and think it’s awful and are too nice to tell me they hated it.
Do you read books while you eat? While you bathe? While you watch movies or TV? While you listen to music? While you’re on the computer? While you’re having sex? While you’re driving? Sometimes while I eat if I’m at work. I love to use my lunch hour for catching up on my reading. No to all the others.
When you were little, did other children tease you about your reading habits? No, but I do remember friends always asking me for recommendations when we had to do book reports. I was only too happy to push books by Judy Blume, Paul Zindel and S.E. Hinton.
What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
The Book Thief.
