Here are a few fun questions Julie answered:
Bad Book Habit: Staying up until I’m bleary-eyed to finish a book even when I know I have to go to work the next morning. I’ve been guilty, more than I care to admit, of staying up until 3a or 4a just to finish a really good story because I just don’t know when to quit! But the books were always worth it….
Do you take books with you when you are out and about: I always have at least one book on me at any given time, not to mention the e-books on my Kindle app via my phone. I continually fight the urge to pull my book out of my purse in social situations!
Favorite book I’ve read this year: As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes. Hands down one of the funniest reads in a long time for me! As a fan of the movie, I was afraid the book would spoil the memory, but I was dead wrong. It made me enjoy remembering my favorite parts all over again.
Best reading-related memory: The year I received the complete set of the Nancy Drew mysteries. I think I was 10 or so. As my birthday is in early April, spring was just on the horizon. That spring and summer, my mother let me hide out in the trees and barn on my grandparents’ farm and read as much as I wanted.
Do you prefer to keep books or give them away once you’ve read them: I am a total book hoarder. If I buy a book, I can pretty much guarantee it’s mine forever. I love the public library and definitely return them, however, I’ve been guilty of going out and buying it after I’ve read a great one so I have a copy “just in case!”
