How many times have you participated in CBR? Has it changed the way you read?
This is my 5th CBR, and it definitely has changed the way I read. I read more carefully and think of things I want to put in my reviews. On the other hand, reading a book I know I’m not going to review is a bit more relaxing!
You work in the Youth Services department at a library and host toddler storytime? This sounds divine and adorable. What’s your favorite thing about working with these future readers?
Seeing the children get excited about a book, even if they’re just picking one off the table to read later. Making the stories interactive and having them find something on the page or guess what is going to happen next, and seeing them make connections makes it all worth while!
What started you down the path of reading/book-loving?
My parents are both readers, so there were always books in the house. I started reading early, around three years old. And the first place I drove to when I got my driver’s license was the library!
There’s a terrible book-related apocalypse that leads to a dystopian future where all but one genre is outlawed. What genre would you want to survive?
Fantasy. If we’re in a dystopian future, we need something to take our minds off of things! And a lot of other genres can sneak into fantasy in disguise.
What place (actual or fictional) that you’ve read about would you most like to visit?
If we can time-travel as well, I think Regency England, but only if I’m seen as upper class! Going there as a member of the lower class would not be very fun.
It’s summertime! What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
It’s easier to say which ones I don’t like! (I don’t like spicy things or mango.) I’m a big fan of coffee or coconut!
I started CBR through faintingviolet, but how did other people find CBR?
