Five Questions from Janie:

2 – How would you describe yourself in a few words?

Funny (I try), caring, and compassionate.

3 – What is your favorite book genre? Your least favorite?

This is hard, but I’ll go with non-fiction in general. I love a good memoir. My least favorite is sports, although, if it’s a book about the Patriots, I’m in!

Hanging out with my family, watching a great show on Netflix, or reading.

FOOD! I love to bake!

Link to my best post:

I chose the YA book rating post last time because it was fresh and seemed to be a topic many people wanted to comment on. This time, I’ll choose my post regarding Carol Buckley. Carol is the founder of the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee and also founded Elephant Aid International. I did an interview with her and you can see the post HERE if you are interested. You’ll learn about her elephant Tarra and where she is now, as well as what Carol is doing to help elephants around the world.

Alex’s Questions:

Recommend one bookstore you love and tell us why you love it?

I love used book sales, but my favorite (and only semi-local) bookstore is Barnes & Noble. I just love that place and I can get stuck there for hours. It’s about a 50-minute drive and honestly, most of my books come from Amazon Prime or local sales because of that.

What were the last three books you bought?

Wonder, Talon of God, Roar.

If you’d win the lottery right now, what would be the first thing you would do?

Right now, I’d be donating a huge portion to Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations in need.

If you could be any animal for one day, which one would it be?

If I had to be an animal for a day, I would choose a dog. I could be loving and supportive to my owner.

How would your perfect library/reading room look like?

I would say a dark, low-lit room with books from wall to wall. Sort of like the Beast’s library.
