Wonderful Books To Read And Authors To Discover!

Author Blog Challenge – Day 15 – A Slight Diversion!

Today’s prompt….Find someone you know, either online or in the real world, who is a true bibliophile and interview them about their reading habits. Ask questions such as:

  • How many books do they buy per month?
  • How many do they actually read?
  • What do they read?
  • Where do they buy their books?
  • Who is their favorite author (do not take offense if it is not you – that’s not the point here).
  • What do they like about the author?
  • How often do they attend signings/readings? What do they enjoy about them?
  • If they could ask their favorite author any question, what would it be?
  • Which book has most recently surprised or delighted them?
  • Of everything they’ve read so far this year, what would they most recommend?….left me stone cold and uninspired, so I decided to deviate, but not completely ignore the prompt. I didn’t pick ONE person and give them the 20 questions, I trawled social media, asked on Facebook etc. What was your favourite book/author…and I have compiled a list of fav reads out there in the big wide world.

Last weekend I was at a Scrapbooking Expo at the Brisbane Convention Centre and didn’t realise that the Lifeline Bookfest was also on. We have been to the Bookfest many times, usually in January as I always forget they have one in June as well. I usually take the opportunity to stock up on super bargain priced reference books, and have found some doozies over the years that I still use to this day. I have never ventured into the fiction section, as the absolute abundance of books just dazzles me and I don’t know where to start, so I just don’t. So next time I go, this list is coming with me and I wonder what gems I will uncover?
