As you know, I am participating in National Blog Posting Month. It's been going pretty well so far! It can be kind of a struggle to come up with a topic to write about every single day, though. I'm one of those people that has genius conversations in my head and then can't remember any of the plan once I get in front of the computer monitor.
So, I've decided to cheat a little and take a series of questions from one of my Book Challenge groups and make a post. This is for the Tower Teams Group: Team Bastet:
*****Get to Know You Questions:*****
1.What's your favorite book this year?
Books I loved this year were The Book of Speculation, Everything I Never Told You, and A Tale for the Time Being. Each of these was beautifully written and left me thinking about the characters and the stories for weeks after finishing them. I was also blown away by Anna Dressed in Blood, a book on a list for people who like the show Supernatural, which I do.
2.Who is your favorite author?
That's a tough one. There are few authors that I like equally across all of their books, if I read a bunch of them. But, I think it's Maggie Steifvater. I love her internet presence. I've always loved Chuck Palahniuk and Neil Gaiman, too, but not always for their authoring.
3.Do you read multiple books at a time?
I almost always have two books in progress. One is a traditional, paper book that I read before bed, while waiting in the car, etc. The other is an audiobook that I have for the car rides to and from work or in between work locations. Audiobooks have saved my life.
4.What is your most anticipated book release of November?
No idea. I'm going out for surgery in two weeks so my plan has been to not buy or borrow any more books so that I am forced to read books that I already own during recovery. I currently have 14 books checked out from the library and 14 days until surgery. So I don't think I'm going to make it.
