Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?


How do you choose a book? eg. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews

If purchasing online, I will read customer reviews and excerpts of the book. When in the bookstore, generally will see a author or book cover that interests me and will read the back cover. If the story sounds good, I will read the first few pages of chapter 1 and read random pages. If the story continues to interest me, will get the book.

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Definitely Fiction 90% of the time. I'll read non fiction when want to learn about something I'm doing or for one of my college classes.

What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?

Both actually - you can't have one without the other

The MacGregor from Nora Robert series about the MacGregor family. He is the patriarch of the family and is quite the matchmaker. He loves to set up his sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren. Makes for a fascinating series of books.

  3. I think my most recent book purchase (for me) was the most recent Iris Johansen hardback, Silent Thunder. :) Although, the last book I bought was actually for my son, the most recent by the author of Eragon.
