For all of you worker bees out there! How do you balance having a day job/career and managing your blog at night? Is it hard or easy to do, and what do people in your work life think of your blogs?

I am unemployed. 🙃

You have just won a $100.00 Visa gift card. Will you spend the entire amount on a rare collector’s edition you have always wanted, or buy several newlypublished books? Explain your choice.

For a hot moment, I wanted to buy all the editions of Vilette by Charlotte Brontë that I could. I only have two. But I have my eye on a couple of other ones. While the editions definitely aren’t rare, I still want them very badly. They are so beautiful.

But yeah, I’ve vowed never to buy a book just to try it ever again. I will only buy books that I have read already. This is because I don’t want to take a risk on a book I might not like, I’m trying to spend less money, and I have no room for any more books. So no newly published books for me.

What author have you read the most in the past two years?

Not including manga artists, that would by Ursula K. Le Guin.

I just happened to come across Le Guin by chance. I was itching to read some sci-fi but I was daunted by all the thick hardcover volumes at my local library. A Fisherman of the Inland Sea stuck out to me. It was a slim normal sized paperback and the summary intrigued me. When I finally read it, I was in awe. I loved how masterfully Le Guin could make these worlds and alien species so foreign but also instill a human element that was relatable and recognizable.

Since then, I’ve been picking up her books whenever I see them available at the library. Riht now, I’m currently reading her Earthsea series so that’ll add a few more books to the count.

What do you think your blog says about you?

Not a lot, that’s for sure. I think because my blog is so all over the place in topics, I think that reflects a bunch of different aspects of me. My blog is not just a book blog. I like to blog about my daily life, my hobbies, and the music I listen to. One thing for sure is that it shows that I can be pretty sporadic sometimes. Whenever I blog, I just blog when I feel like it and that’s not all the time. It’s like my journal writing (although I have been trying to get better at that).

Do you remember the first book you read by yourself?

Nope. Not at all. I’m not even going to attempt to try to figure this out. I can see picture books in my mind but damn… That was such a long time ago. And I was such an avid reader back then, even when I was just first starting out. I wish I knew the answer.
