1. What are you reading? Tell us about it!
I’m currently reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon on my iPad and The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson (but mostly Outlander as I’m hooked!) in paper book form (you know, for when the iPad is charging lol.)
2. Do you read one book at a time, or read multiple books at once?
As you can see above, multiple… Though I tend to only focus on the one I’m most hooked on while reading.
3. What is the first book that made you fall in love with reading?
I’ve loved reading since as far back as I can remember. I devoured the Goosebumps books as a child (my favorite was Say Cheese and Die) but the first book I obsessively could not put down was Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison by Lois Lensky. I read it repeatedly in the fourth grade and obsessed over the tale of her being forced to live with a native tribe. It took years of hunting to find the book again as an adult since I remembered the cover vividly but not the name or the author. The other one I felt really shaped my love of reading was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. I loved all Narnia books.
4. Do you prefer the physical copy of the book or an electronic version?
If you’d have asked me this question a month ago I would have sworn I’d never switch to eBooks ever. Never never never. I’m an avid book lover-I like the feel, the smell, and having them lining my walls/shelves. However, I’ve recently discovered a love of using my iPad to read books… It’s easy to do in the dark, or on a trip where you can’t carry a lot of books, and it’s SO easy to just get the next book you want without waiting for it or going anywhere… I may still prefer the regular books for those novels I know I want in physical form, but reading the digital ones has been great too!
5. What are three books on your to read list?
I have hundreds on my to-read list… I’m going to share both the next 3 I am reading (for sure-and already have) plus the top 3 on my wishlist-just because it’s fun!
The top 3 on my wishlist are: American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholk, and Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman.
