3 Facts About Me
1. I started reading as a kid with comics, and still go through a graphic novel every week.
2. I’ve never really been a big fan of chocolate.
3. I once challenged Justin Bieber to a fight over twitter. It was to be a live, televised event and all the proceeds going to charity. He didn’t respond.
4. I can’t count.
Name a book that has influenced or affected you in some way.
On Writing by Stephen King. It’s inspiring as someone who wants to be a writer, but I think just about anyone could find something inspiring to take from it. For example: King tried to throw his manuscript for Carrie in the garbage. His wife noticed, pulled it out, read it, and told him how good it was and that he had to send it to publishers. It ended up being his first book. It’s a writing story, but also, at its core, a story about not giving up.
If a person claims to be a bookworm, what book would you most expect him/her to have read?
Nothing in particular. My question would be more about how many books per year they read. To be clear, no matter the person’s answer, I’d never say it wasn’t enough. It’s all relative. I read a lot compared to a lot of people I know, but there are so many people in the blogosphere that make me feel I barely read at all!
Bookshops or libraries?
Bookshops. Don’t get me wrong, I love a library, but when I take a book home, they expect me to bring it back!
Which book would you pass on to your grandchild? Why?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Not only because it’s a book I love and an incredible story, but it would also serve as a history book of sorts to the decade I grew up in.
What song is currently stuck in your head?
Vacation by The Dirty Heads
