But enough about interviewing other people. It’s time I interviewed YOU.
1. What’s your favourite time of day to read?
I most likely read in the afternoon or in the evening when I have peace and quiet.
2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)
No. I used to, but then I started going online during breakfast.
3. What’s your favourite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)
Pancakes. But I eat them very rarely because I’m too lazy to make them in the morning.
4. How many hours a day would you say you read?
I strive for at least one, but depends on how much other things I have to do.
5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?
Ten years ago I was at the university and I mostly read study books and material, which I don’t count as reading. I read much more now.
6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?
Not really – I read a book a week. I do have occasional reading flashes when I finish a book in a day.
7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation. Wouldn’t that be cool? Not to mention it would save me a lot of time and strength.
8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?
No, not everywhere. I only take a book with me somewhere if I know I will have time to read.
9. What KIND of book?
Depends. If I have to carry it around in a bag all day, then a paperback, because it is lighter. But if I go by car, I rather take a hardback because it is less destructible. Mostly I just take whatever I’m reading at the time, regardless of the format.
10. How old were you when you got your first library card?
If school library counts, then 7. I got my first public library card at the age of 13 or 14.
11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)
Probably, either one of my grandmother’s Bibles, or church songbooks, or cookbooks that she handed down to me.
12. Do you read in bed?
13. Do you write in your books?
Nooo. Of course not.
14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t like what you read. Keep trying different things until you find something you like.
15. What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask? (Actually, leave the answer to this one in the comments on this post, huh? So I can find them when I need inspiration!)
I haven’t participated a lot in BTT for a while, so I’m not sure if this has ever been asked:
Have you every written any fan-fiction? If yes, why and for which book(s)? If no, would you like to and for which books(s)?
