Every week Jennifer at Crazy for Books has a blog hop for book bloggers!
This week's question is:
Q: What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?
A. I just can't get into science fiction. It may be because I'm simply not that interested in science, but if I do read about science, I prefer science FACT.
At Parajunkee's View, it is Feature & Follow Friday.
This week's question:
Q. Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?
A: I really thought about this. There are some "mysterious" authors I'd like to know more about, such as Tom Pynchon. Who is he? The only problem is that I haven't read any of his books! J.K. Rowling comes to mind, because I love the story of how she wrote much of the first Harry Potter book in a local coffee shop. I love to write in coffee shops and also in mall food courts BEFORE the mall opens!
I would really like to talk to some DEAD authors, too. Jane Austen and all of the Brontes! J. D. Salinger! Ernest Hemingway and Sylvia Plath! I wish there had been better medications for depression when Ernest and Sylvia were alive. So sad . . . and then there's John Keats and the other tragic English romantics . . . gosh, the list is endless!
Another blog hop is held by G Reads:
This week's question:
Q: Bookshelf Tour: Where do you keep your books at home? Are they organized?
A. My books used to be organized! When I was little, my room wasn't that neat, but all my children's books was arranged on my big bookcase in alphabetical order by the author's last name!
My books are in a state of chaos right now! I live in a very small place (two rooms). I bought some Billy Bookshelves at Ikea. Here is one.
Right now I have some books in a storage facility, some on bookshelves, and others scattered around the bedroom, bathroom, and living room (and I'm not going to post photos of that mess!) I am giving some away to charity (if I haven't read them in ten years I'm never going to read them!). But most importantly, I bought a Kindle a few months ago and have them on there. It get hold over 3,000 books! The only books I really need to keep in book form are my beloved decorating and design coffee-table books!
Here is my Kindle with my nice padded cover:
And here is the partial list on my Kindle:
