Booking Through Thursday


But enough about interviewing other people. It’s time I interviewed YOU.

1. What’s your favorite time of day to read?

Early in the morning.

2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)
It would probably be more true to say that I read during breakfast time, that is to say, I don’t eat breakfast but at that general time of day.

3. What’s your favorite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)
Bagels.

4. How many hours a day would you say you read?
About one.

5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?
Yes, but I’m becoming much more discriminating in my reading choices and habits.

6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?
In comparison to other book bloggers, no, but lesser-read people call me that.

7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Speed-reading. That way I could really all 200-plus book on my TBR pile and not feel any pressure. There's so much to read and too little time to read it in!

8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?
Yes, always!

9. What KIND of book?
Anything I’m reading at the moment; I bought my handbag based on the fact that it can carry pretty much anything.

10. How old were you when you got your first library card?
I can’t remember!

11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)
The physically oldest book I have in my collection is a collection of MR James ghost stories that I bought in a Charing Cross Road bookshop in London; the pub. date is 1934. My copy of Margery Sharpe's Brittania Mews is from 1946, and I have a first edition copy of Rebecca West's The Birds Fall Down from 1966.

12. Do you read in bed?
Sometimes.

13. Do you write in your books?
Absolutely not! Horror!

14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?

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!)
