If you had to save some books to take with you after the zombie apocalypse, what would you HAVE to bring?

Hopefully they would be slow zombies, because I’d have a whole suitcase full…The Harry Potter Series, a few Agatha Christie titles, East of Eden, The Hunger Games trilogy, The Importance of Being Earnest.

What genres do you prefer to read?:

I will read just about anything (even the back of a cereal box) but lean toward YA, mysteries, thrillers, and the occasional chick lit. I do try to read a classic or two a year as well. Gotta get that culture!

Which authors would you love to hang out with (living or dead)?: Agatha Christie, J.K. Rowling, John Steinbeck, Oscar Wilde

Favorite place to read?: In bed, on my front porch, on a beach…if the last two of those could include a fine German beer, all the better!

Paperback or Ebook?:

Both, but mainly ebooks these days. I can carry so much more with me when I travel or am at work. I do read paperbacks, but only if I’m at home more, so summer or winter break. I tend to buy the hardcovers of only my favorite new books these days.

How many books do you typically read in a month or year?:

2-3 a month, generally. I’m aiming for 40 this year. Hopefully I can make it happen!
