Booking Through Thursday: Interview Part 2

Sometimes I like to participate in the fun Booking Through Thursday meme and today is one of those days! They have a fun meme going on so you can find out some more about me. Here it goes:

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

1. What’s your favorite time of day to read?
At night, when I am all snuggled up in my bed and the day is finally all my own.
2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)
Nope. During breakfast I check in with my blog, email, bank accounts, news, etc. 
3. What’s your favorite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)
4. How many hours a day would you say you read?
1-2 hours
5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?
Well 10 years ago I was in school and had a lot of required reading so I did a lot more. However, I do a lot more reading just for fun now than I ever did!
6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?
I wish!
7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Time travel.
8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?
Heck yeah! Often to the detriment of my shoulders.
9. What KIND of book?
A physical book, not an e-reader. Today I am reading Tolstoy and the Purple Chair
10. How old were you when you got your first library card?
First Grade. I remember the library as I thought it was beautiful.
11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)
It's probably a tie between Lonesome Dove and To Kill a Mockingbird. Both of those have been in my possession since high school.
12. Do you read in bed?
Um, yeah, see question 1!
13. Do you write in your books?
14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?
Keep reading until you can find a genre you like. I promise there is one out there for you. 
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!)
For all other answers to this and the above come on over to BTT and find them, and of course participate yourself! 


  1. Timetravel? I've always answered flying or invisibility to that question - timetravel never crossed my mind before, but that is a far better skill. Consider it my new favoured superpower!

  2. Always interesting to learn more about fellow book bloggers :)
    I do the same for breakfast btw. A morning ritual I guess!
    How lovely that you read 1-2 hours a day, I would love to make it more into a habit like that as well.
    Thanks for sharing this with us. Like it :)

  3. Bacon? I knew I liked you for a reason. LOL.

    1. If I could it bacon every day I would!

  4. It seems like I am about the only one who writes in my books. But, only the books I own.

    I am enjoying reading everyones interviews, I have noticed one thing, that almost all us bookies carry a book with us everywhere. What does that say about us? I know I hate being bored waiting, so I carry a book.

    1. I know, if I have 5 min to spare I look for a book!

  5. Yes, bacon is the perfect food! Maybe not for reading, but it's still so good!

  6. I have no idea when I first got a library card... hmmm... I wonder when that was? I wonder if my mom remembers... maybe I'll ask her!

  7. My daughter would totally agree with you on the bacon.

  8. I'm with you on the physical book!

  9. Great answers! I wish I was a speed reader. I would never write in my books. :)

  10. I read about one to two hours, too, if I'm lucky -- and reading before bed is my absolute favorite thing! In fact, that's when I get almost all my reading done. Unless I fall asleep, of course . . .

  11. "Heck yeah! Often to the detriment of my shoulders."

    ME TOO! I would probably carry smaller purses except I always base my new purchases on if they can hold my book(s).

    1. Yes, I have to have a big purse so it can hold lots of things but a book is number 1!
