Reader Interview: Susan

Tuesday is reader interview day. If you'd like to participate (you know you want to), the details are here. Without further ado, today's reader interviewee is Susan (who has excellent taste in books *g*)!

1. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am 33 years old and live in Ohio. For 10 years I sold and serviced 401K plans for a large investment firm. After we had our 2nd child I decided to stay home. Watching my daughter live everyday to the fullest, I decided to try my hand at writing (I wrote a ton in college.) Love it, but let it fall by the way side. I have some freelance work and a short story in progress.)

2. Are you a hoarder or do you give your books away?

Depends. Your books I hoard. Alison Kent & Lora Leigh I hoard. Others, sometimes yes and sometimes. I am blessed to have a great library nearby, so I borrow alot now.

3. What author might tempt you into turning stalker?

Not in my nature to stalk.

4. How susceptible are you to chocolate?

Very. I love dark chocolate

5. Favorite book? Why?

The Time Travelers Wife.

6. If you knew you were going to be stuck on a desert island, what three things would you take with you?

Notebook to write in. Some really good sun block & moisturizer. A good book.

7. What did you eat for breakfast?

Cherrios w/ soymilk and dried cherries

8. How many books in your current to-be-read pile?


9. Describe your idea of a perfect hero.

I like an alpha man, but not one that is overly arrogant. I think a man can have a strong sense of himself, and still be a decent guy and not cocky. Cocky usually mask insecurities. Arrogance the same. A really confident man does not need to hide behind those two traits.

Yay! - Someone else who loves The Time Traveler's Wife. :)

I seriously love that book. I am not good at articulating why and the first time I read it, it was really slow going.....

Thanks Nalini for posting my interview..... cool!

You are so right!

Oh, and I loved the Time Traveler's Wife, too. I need to read it again, I'm sure I'd catch a lot that I missed the first two times!

Hey, Susan. I gotta admit, ya'll have piqued my interest in The Time Traveler's Wife. I don't believe I've heard of that one before. Must check it out.

Hi Nalini,

I've been a big meanie and tagged you. Details at my blog.

Egads, tagged!! Shell, how could you? *g*

I couldn't get into the Time Traveler's Wife but the concept is so intriguing I might give it another shot.

BookQueen said...

Another Lora Leigh fan! Woo-hoo!

I haven't read TTTW either but I might have to give it a look.....

Cherie J said...

I have never read The Time Traveler's Wife either so I now am curious as well.

Susan said...

You must take The Time Travelers Wife with an open mind and not get bogged down with the time line - it will make sense and it is really beautiful, but unconventional. You must try again. It is so worth it :)
