This is another one of those things going around on the blogs right now. I’ve enjoyed reading others responses and it looked like fun so I’ve decided to participate. I’ve seen it on quite a few blogs but the first one I noticed it on was the hidden side of a leaf.
What are you reading right now? I am reading One Hundred Years of Solitude and an ARC of The Spanish Bow by Andromeda Romano-Lax. You can also check out what I’m reading to the right over there ——->.
Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that? I will probably start on Crashing Through by Robert Kurson next. And then maybe possibly No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy.
What magazines do you have in your bathroom right now? We don’t keep magazines in the bathroom. I’ve never really been into that.
What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read? By forced I’m thinking assigned to read in school. The worst is probably The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. I just remember really disliking that book and the way it was written.
What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone? That would probably be Fahrenheit 451. It’s such a great book, so go read it!
Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they? Actually they don’t. I visit fairly often but I almost always use the self checkout station, unless I have to pay a fine…
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? Hmm, that’s a tough one. I didn’t love it, but a lot of people I know hate Heart of Darkness and I thought it was quite good. Also maybe Snow Crash, which a lot of people won’t read because it’s science fiction.
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? I do read books while I eat, usually during my lunch break at work. And I occasionally read while listening to music, but that’s only on the train ride home. And I guess sometimes I read books when I’m on the computer meaning e-books. People that read while driving scare the crap out of me.
When you were little, did other children tease you about your reading habits? Not really. I think some people thought it was weird that I was reading Tom Clancy novels in elementary school, but I don’t remember being teased exactly. Also, I didn’t become an addict until just this year.
What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down? I can’t even remember. Nothing in that last few years. Especially now that I have a daughter and work full time. I have to be able to stay awake during the day. I did stay up a little later than usual a couple weeks ago because of Snow Crash.
