Self-indulgent questions about books and reading 9

41: Who gave you your love of reading?
Probably my parents, though I think part of it is genetic, too. We didn't have a TV until I was 7, and even then, being overseas, we didn't have many channels and some of the ones we had weren't in English. But mom and dad always had books--they'd pay extra for movers to move us when they had so many books. Mom used to read to us before bed. Dad would give me the comics from his newspaper before work when I was really really young--like, two and three. By the time I went to school to learn to read, I could already read.

42: What book is next on your list to read?
Probably Insurgent, or maybe one of the books about London I just picked up. Maybe a science book.

43: When did you start to read chapter books?
First grade, when the others were reading stupid boring things as a class. I don't remember which ones, but I'd borrow them from the teacher or read them in the library or the bookstore. By third grade, I was reading longer ones like Charlotte's Web.

44: Who is your favorite children's book author?
I don't really have one author who I read all their stuff like that. I loved the Narnia books but have no interest in any of his other stuff. I adore The Snow Spider, Tottie, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and all the fairytales I could get my hands on, but I didn't read anything else from those authors, either.

45: Which author would you like to interview the most?
Oh, man, I'd love to just talk to any number of favorite authors. Interviews make me nervous; it's better if someone else interviews me!
