Interview Meme: Serena's Questions to Me

Lots of interviews of each other going around out there! And there's one that's actually a meme of sorts that I've jumped in on. I saw this over at Serena's blog where she was interviewed by Monica, who was interviewed by Ruth and so on! Now it's my turn to answer Serena's questions:

1. If you aren't reading, what are you doing that is considered "you time?"

Lately, this would probably be watching TV as I am addicted to quite a few shows. Heroes, Lost, American Idol, Amazing Race, Survivor, Friday Night Lights, Chuck all top the list. (And don't I wish I could still list Moonlight in this group.) In the past, the answer would have been quilting and scrap booking, but I haven't done either one of those forever. I would say that blogging and reading blogs is "me" time too.

2. What one career would you die to have and why?

Hmmmm.... well... to work at the library? Kinda of like I'm doing now, only help people with the books. Maybe that's in the future. It would also be really cool to be the buyer of books for the library, or a book store. Or the one that gets the authors to come do signings at a book store, though this would scare me to death since I'm overly shy-ish, but I bet I could get over it.

3. If you could only pick one book and one friend to take along with you to a desert island to discuss that book, who would you take and which book would you take? Why?

Eeek! I don't like this question! I'm not good with these "pick only one" questions!

How about.... I know! I would take Markus Zusak and we would discuss The Book Thief! :)
Would that count? He can be my friend, right? No? Hmmmm.... maybe I would take Twilight...and my friend Jenny down the street who HATES it! That could be fun!

4. Do you have any obsessions/hobbies besides reading? What are they and what do they give you?

Are you hinting at something here? Perhaps the Josh Groban obsession? :) Yes, I'm obsessed with Josh. He gives me much musical joy and happiness! (His latest vlog here if anyone is interested. What a cool guy, no?)

Another fun hobby type thing that I really enjoy is making movies on the computer, but I haven't had time lately for this one either. But when I do it, I love it because it's a wonderful creative outlet for me, and in the end you have a cool way to remember an event.

I'm pretty obsessed with blogging right now too. That gives me a fun creative way to share and discuss books with whoever will listen!

5. If you had $1 million, what would you do with it?

The Mr. and I would take off on a big adventure and travel the world! (After the kids are raised and gone of course! Or maybe we'd just bag school and take them with.)

Fun questions! Thanks Serena!

If you'd like to participate here's the "rules":

Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.” (along with your email address!)
I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions).
You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Now, hopefully someone of you will want to be interviewed by me!


  1. Interview me! I need distraction, I just finished The Long Winter.

  2. great answers and how ever did you know that I was referring to Josh! LOL I loved that you wanted to take the author with you to discuss the book on a desert island.

    Thanks for playing!

  3. I really enjoyed reading your answers. I think The Book Thief is a good choice. I LOVED that book!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  4. Great answers! I'm addicted to LOST too! And I would sit on a desert island and talk about The Book Thief with you!

  5. What?! You're obsessed with Josh Groban? I didn't know that! ;)

  6. Natasha: What? You didn't know that? :) I try to keep it under control on this blog because, you know, it's all about books... not Josh. However, there's moments when I can't help it! Are you a fan too?

  7. Sadly, no I'm not a fan. I don't think I've ever listened to an album or anything. My husband makes fun of him all the time. *gasp* I'm not sure why he does.

  8. Guys are expected to make fun of him... it's what they do! But that's just 'cause they are jeolous of him! :)
