Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that?
As I mentioned earlier I have 11 boxes of unread books...I'm sure I'll find something.
Also continuing the Chalet School reread. Just got the notice from Girls Gone By Press that Prefects of the Chalet School should be shipping soon. It's one of maybe 1/2 dozen that I haven't read. And it's the last one.
And I need to get my hands on The Gospel of the Knife by Will Shetterly since I loved Dogland
What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read?
The Red Pony by John Steinbeck
What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone?
It's my job to recommend books...
Anything by Pamela Dean. Or Emma Bull, Diane Duane, Diana Wynne Jones, Scott Westerfeld, Will Shetterly, Lois McMaster Bujold, Tamora Pierce, Terry Pratchett, Cory Doctorow, Charles Stross, etc.
Unless they don't like fantasy and SF. For realistic teen fiction, I'd go with Jacqueline Moriarity, Garret Freymann-Weyr, Gordon Korman, David Levithan, Rachel Cohn, Ellen Wittlinger, etc.
And I'm sure I'm missing some.
Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they?
I should hope so, given that I work there.
Do you read books while you eat? While you bathe? While you watch movies or TV? While you listen to music? While you’re on the computer? While you’re having sex? While you’re driving?
Yes, no, yes, yes, yes, no, that's what Big Finish audios are for.
What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
I wouldn't say it was too good to put down, but I did stay up reading the latest Harry Potter, so I could be done before the library opened the next day and not risk being spoiled.
