Book Lover Questions…

What is your favorite book and why? Saxon Chronicles – Tells the History of England and the famous King Alfred
Other favorites? Genghis: Birth of an Empire series
Pillars of the Earth
What’s your favorite genre to read? Historical fiction and mysteries. But if someone recommends a good book I will read it. 
Where do you like to read? In bed at the end of the day or sitting on the sofa with the music on low.
Do you prefer paper books or ebooks? Actually I am learning to read more ebooks now that I got my Kindle last year. But I still do read the occasional paperback book
Do you prefer to buy or borrow books? I usually buy but almost always second hand. 
Do you stop reading when you are tired or when you hit chapter breaks? Chapter breaks
When you finish a book do you usually keep it, throw it away, sell it, or give it away? If I really like it I keep it or give it to someone else to read. I never throw books away. That is criminal. 
What helps you decide on a book? (Book reviews, suggested by friend, by browsing the shelves, etc.) All of the above. You never know when a good book will come your way.
Do you prefer to read a book that stands on its own or is a part of a series? No preference really. I read all types.

So You Want to be a Writer questions…

A few sentences about your writing: What do you write (blog entries, novels, poetry, etc)? Why do you write? Most of the writing I do is on my blog now. When I was younger I wrote poetry and songs. I was the editor of the literary magazine in HS. Don’t have much time for my creative side these days with 2 children running around.
Did you always know that you wanted to write? I have always dreamed of writing a book, maybe one day

Favorite Questions…

What’s your favorite food? Thai and Mexican
Favorite color? Green
Favorite song? This one changes all the time.
Favorite movie? I haven’t been to a movie in a long time.
Favorite TV show? I was a big fan of ER and now I like Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t have a lot of time to watch TV.

Random Questions…

If you developed a superpower what would it be and why? To make people happy!  There is too much unhappiness in the world.
What did you want to be when you were little? A singer :)
What is the answer to life? I wish I had the answer to this one.  I guess for me it is being happy surrounded by my great kids and husband traveling and learning.
