What are your top three book pet hates?
1. Typos and repeated/missing words. I’m a fairly fast reader and stopping to reread a sentence to figure it out throws me off my game.
2. Repetition, scenes being told over and over and over again for the sake of reminding you what’s going on in the story. If I’ve went to all the trouble to read a series, I remember what’s going on, I don’t need a refresher every time.
3. Cliff hangers! Especially if the next installment isn’t coming out for a year or two.
Describe your perfect reading spot.
Any comfy place where I can stretch out and drink coffee at the same time.
Tell us three book confessions.
1. I love old movies, but find it hard to get into a classic novel upon which they are based.
2. I’ve read The Witching Hour by Anne Rice at least 25 times, probably more.
3. I spend as much time compiling and reordering my “to read” list as I actually do reading…or close to it anyway.
When was the last time you cried during reading a book?
I’m not super emotional when it comes to books, but I have lost several characters over the years that made me sad.
How many books are on your beside table?
I usually read my kindle (I know, blasphemy) in bed, so 1, but holding hundreds of books…I’m not sure how the answer should be.
What is your favourite snack to eat while your reading?
Oatmeal raisin cookies, the soft ones.
Name three books you would recommend to anyone.

2. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
3. Needful Things by Stephen King
Show us a picture of your favourite shelf on your bookcase.
Lame, I know. But I get much more use out of a digital library than carrying books around.
Write how much books mean to you in three words.
More than people

For every 3 new books I read, I reread an old favorite.
