reader-spotlight-graphic

As promised, this week I am featuring another reader here on Reade and Write. Welcome, Angela Holland!

How often do you read?

Every day.

What is the name of the last book you finished?

Newton & Polly by Jody Hedlund.

What are you reading now?

A Carol Christmas by Sheila Roberts.

What is your preferred genre?

Historical Fiction but I also enjoy cozy mysteries, romance and biographies.

How often do you venture outside your preferred genre?

Often.

What was the last book you read outside your preferred genre?

I am reading one now that is not historical fiction.

Are you in a book club?

Yes.

If so, what book did your club read last?

Sting by Sandra Brown

Where do you obtain most of the books you read- from a bookstore, online, the library, borrowed from a friend, etc.?

From Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

How do you decide which books to read?

First my genre and then by subject.

What is in your To-Be-Read pile?

I have many books in my TBR I am working my way through: Patience Griffin’s Quilts and Kilts Series as well as Laura Childs’s Tea Shop Mystery Series. 

Do you pay attention to especially bad reviews of books when deciding whether to buy or read them?

No. It seems that is people don’t like things, then I tend to like them.

Lots of people don’t have a favorite book for a variety of reasons. Do you have a favorite? What is it?

The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon is one of my favorites.

Where is your favorite reading spot?

Anywhere and everywhere.

Anything else you want me to know?

I have loved reading since I was little girl and never leave home without a book.

Thank you, Angela! I’ve enjoyed getting to know more about you and your reading habits!

Until next time,

Amy

  1. What a great idea – to interview READERS and see how they select books and what piques their interest. Nice to meet you, Angela. I loved the Outlander series, especially the first two books. And I totally agree with what you say about bad reviews – those readers that give really really bad reviews usually are totally off the mark, and are either trolls or just unhappy people. 🙂 Like shopping for clothes, choosing a book is different for each reader.

      Good point about the connection between clothes shopping and book reviews–everybody’s different! I love interviewing readers for exactly the reason you say: to find out what piques their interest and to see how they select books. It’s a wonderful way to get to know some of the people I meet on FB and on other social media sites. I love the interviews! Glad you stopped by!
