Questions from Reading Kelly

1. Where do you keep all of your unread books- together or scattered throughout your shelves?
I have a separate bookshelf for my unread books which has more books in it than my read bookshelf.

2. Do your book selections vary by season?
No, I have no way of selecting my books at all.

3. What is your favourite food?
The McChicken burger from McDonald's.

4. Do you read the inside flaps that describe a book before or while reading it?
Depends on how much I already know about the book.

5. Any quirky reading habits?
Not really, although I hate stopping mid chapter and I get annoyed when interrupted whilst reading.

6. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? And why?
New York because I have wanted to go there since I was 5 years old.

7. When did your love of reading begin?
My mum always read books to me when I was younger but I never really loved reading until I read the first Harry Potter book when I was 8.

8. What are the best and worst books you have read lately?
All the books I have read lately have been really good. It's hard to choose just one. I don't have any books that I would rate the worst I have read, I always seem to find something in a book that I like.

9. Do you have any hobbies outside of reading?
I watch ALOT of different sports in alot of different timezones.

10. Which do you prefer- the beginning or end of a story?
Probably the end, because you are more absorbed in the story by then.

11. What is your fondest book memory?
Probably the anticipation of waiting for the next Harry Potter book to be released, which always felt longer that what it was.
