And now, as promised, here's a new reader interview! I've got two more left (unless any more come in), that I plan to post next week. Today's interviewee is Helen, a fellow book lover!!
Question #1: Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am currently ready to graduate from Cal. State University Bakersfield after this Winter Quarter with a LBST degree. I plan to attend either San Jose State University or someplace else- I haven’t decided yet!- to get my Masters in Library Science.
Obviously I love books so I reaaallllyyyy hope to get into a profession where I am surrounded by books!
I was born in California and have lived here all my life!! I love it here and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, but I would love to travel all over the world!!
Question #2: Are you a hoarder or do you give your books away?
I am definitely a hoarder, I also happen to be a giver, especially when I love a series ‘cause then I give my books over to someone else so they can be obsessed as me and I can keep buying new ones….sounds bad but …..jeez what can I say I LOVE BOOKS!!!
Question #3: What author might tempt you into turning stalker?
I don’t think I could stalk anyone…..what with the threat of Imprisonment….but if I could get away with it….ummm…..lets just say Nalini you are definitely in the top 10!
Question #4: How susceptible are you to chocolate?
Very susceptible to chocolate, especially if it is Ferrero Rocher….ohhhhh that stuff is soooo good!!!!
Question #5: Favorite book? Why?
Such a hard question…I guess I will go with what I said in a previous blog, Piers Anthony writes Sci-Fi Fantasy books, and his Xanth series got me started reading when I was young and so I will always hold a special place in my heart for his books since his books gave me my unquenchable desire to read, read, and read!!!!
Question #6: If you knew you were going to be stuck on a desert island, what three things would you take with you?
EEEEEKK!!! The desert I can live with, (I live in the MOJAVE DESERT!) but Island!!!! I am so afraid of water!!! So for me I would definitely need …… an architect/contractor so he could design a home, and build it, if I have to live on an island….. Then I would need… a chef so he could feed me food that I wouldn’t know how to prepare, or scavenge, or find.. and last but not least…..a fully equipped helicopter pilot with a helicopter so I could leave this Island paradise whenever I need to get back to civilization!!!!
Question #7: What did you eat for breakfast?
This one is easy….I ran out the door and forgot my breakfast!!! But I was dreaming about pancakes with lots of maple syrup
Question #8: How many books in your current to-be-read pile?
Oh wow since I am in my last 3 weeks of school I have at least 10 books!! But its ok because as soon as I am done I will be reading at least 2 a day and I should be caught up in a week!
Question #9: Describe your idea of a perfect hero.
The perfect hero for me is someone who can love me for who I am, but will always spare time for others as well and not be caught up completely in just us because there is a whole world out there.
Which character in a book do you relate most with?
-I relate most to Sascha because she fights her feelings a lot but then finds out that her emotions are what sets her free to be everything she always wanted to be and more.
Where do you live?
-I live in California, Antelope Valley, Lancaster- part of the Mojave Desert
So what would people think was a perfect heroine??
-A perfect heroine can be tough or soft but can always hold her own when she needs to.
If you were in the Psy/Changeling World, what side would you be in?
-I would absolutely want to be in the Changeling world, being able to turn into an animal would be a wonderful gift!!
