Have you always been a bookworm?
Yes, I've always loved to read. When I was younger I would read entire books in a day.
What are you reading right now?
"A Cold Dark Place" by Gregg Olsen
What will you read next?
"Heart of Ice" by Gregg Olsen
List 3 books that you always wanted to read but haven’t gotten around to:
The Hunger Games - I've heard so many things about them, but wasn't sure I would like them. I figured I would read them at some point since there is a movie now (which I haven't seen yet, either).
Do you collect any particular author?
I love Gregg Olsen. I have most of his books.
Have you ever disliked a book so much that you couldn't finish it?
I tried reading the first The Game of Thrones book because I had a few friends that were really into it - but definitely not me. I could barely get through a few chapters. It's not even the type of book(s) I like, but I thought I'd give it a try.
Where do you usually get your books?
Barnes and Noble for my Nook
Where do you do most of your reading?
At home and work (when I'm on break).
Do you read books more than once? Which ones and why?
I've read "Tuesdays with Morrie" a few times.
Do you have any "guilty pleasure" books -- Something you're almost embarrassed to admit enjoying?
I'm not really embarrassed to admit to any books I read. I just recently got into the Stephanie Plum series, but I don't mind talking about it. :)
What was your favorite book when you were a child?
I read the Babysitters Club books when I was a kid. I was a member of their book club and everything.
What is your favorite passage from a book?
Hmm…I don't think I have a favorite passage from a book, honestly.
What do you do with books when you finish with them?
I keep them if I really liked them. Sometimes I donate them, too.
Do you loan out your books to friends/family/coworkers?
Yes! I love that you can loan books via the Nook & Kindle apps now.
