BTT for 1/12/12
1. What’s your favorite time of day to read?
hmm, my usual time of day is evenings. anytime is good though!
2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)
during the week i usually eat breakfast at work and on the weekend i am usually chatting with B, so no. I used to when i lived alone.
3. What’s your favorite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)
I make some darn good French Toast...add on some turkey sausage, some hash brown casserole, 1 glass OJ and 1 cup coffee for the perfect breakfast.
4. How many hours a day would you say you read?
It varies. some days 30 mins, some weekend days hours and hours.
5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?
hmm, i didn't keep track 10 years ago...about the same, maybe a bit more? i really couldn't say. I read more mindfully now though.
6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?
I don't but other people may.
7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Healing factor definitely, followed by flight and telekinesis.
8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?
9. What KIND of book?
not sure what you mean. e vs paper? genre? I pretty much have whatever book i am reading unless it is just too large. My phone has a kindle app so i always have a free classic or two on it.
10. How old were you when you got your first library card?
again, really couldn't say. we moved a bunch. I know i had one in high school, i probably had one in middle school. I know i checked out a lot of books from the school library which would have kept me from needing to get my own card.
11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)
oldest physical: I have a copy of Aspects of the Novel by EM Forster from 1956.
longest in my collection: probably The Shining by Stephen King.
Oldest written: I have a collected works of Shakespeare so those would be the oldest works.
12. Do you read in bed?
13. Do you write in your books?
14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?
another weird question! :) do you mean like a 5 yr old just starting to read? or an adult? or someone who knows how to read but wants to try to take it up as a hobby? Don't know that the kid would need advice, maybe his parents need the advice but as i've never taught a kid to read i have none to give. I send my nieces and nephews books a lot though. for an adult who either is learning or wants to read more, i would advise not to be ashamed of what you're reading and not to worry about what others think of it.
currently: trying to get warm! it snowed a touch in Nashville today.
