Book lover Q & A

Book pet peeves

Bad editing. Bad fan fiction (Fifty Shades of Dreck anyone?). Books without a character to root for.

Perfect reading spot


3 bookish confessions

I don’t read from the New York Times bestsellers list unless I have to.

I can’t get to sleep without reading.

I usually have 4 or more books being read simultaneously.

Last time you cried while reading a book

The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row by Anthony Ray Hinton. It is a must read.  I read it BEFORE it was on Oprah’s book list!

Number of books on your nightstand

None.  Just my Kindle.

Favorite reading snack

I don’t normally eat while I’m reading but I love a nice cup of coffee.

3 books you would recommend to anyone

Wonder by R. J. Palacio, The Shoemaker’s Wife by Andriana Trigiani, Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan (make sure you listen to the audiobook)

Picture of your favorite bookshelf
