Book Questionnaire I Ripped From Another Site

What are you reading right now? Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, A Meeting at Corvallis by S.M. Stirling

Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that? Yes! Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, The Fifth Head of Cerberus by Gene Wolfe, and Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

What magazines do you have in your bathroom right now? I don't read in the bathroom; i am not in there long enough. I only subscribe to Entertainment Weekly and Skeptic.

What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read? I hated The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzergerald.

What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone? Right now i am rec'ing The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan and the George R.R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire series

Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they? I would say no, mainly because we have self-checkout in nashville and the hold shelves are also self service. They probably would if i had to talk to them everytime i checked out though.

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? I have more the opposite problem, there are plenty of things others pimp that i don't like. Like The DaVinci Code. The idea/general storyline was ok but it was terribly written and poorly plotted.

Do you read books while you do other things? Cooking frequently i will, specifically if i am in a "continuous stir" phase of something.

When you were little, did other children tease you about your reading habits? No, but i did get my best friend by reading: i was a new kid, freshman in a new high school and eating lunch by myself. My best friend and her boyfriend saw me reading, figured i must be interesting because i didn't look like i gave a shit what anyone else thought, and came sat down with me. we are still friends 17 years later.

What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down? Probably Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
