E-Reader or print? and why?
Both, but I prefer print. Why? There’s nothing that can replace the feel of a real book, nor the smell and the simple pleasure of turning a real page. I find e-books exhausting to the eyes and the brain.
One book at a time or multiples?
Multiple books at one time. I read to write reviews and I read for pleasure, though I do argue that all my reading is for pleasure.
When do you do most of your reading?
In the afternoon. I write in the morning; read and write book reviews in the afternoon.
Favorite place to read?
I have a comfy La-Z-Boy chair in my living room which looks out over the Marlborough Forest in the back. I can pause my reading at any time and rest my eyes looking at the scenery and the occasional deer.
How do you keep your books organized?
I’ve tried. But I have so many, it’s impossible to organize anything logically. When I last moved, eight years ago, the movers complained about the over 500 boxes of books. I thought I would organize the books as I unpacked them, but then found it all very overwhelming and I just wanted the boxes emptied and out of the house. I think I know where every book is. Sort of.
Keep books or give them away?
Where books are concerned, I’m a hoarder. If I have duplicate copies or I wasn’t too enthralled with the book, I’ll donate it to the library so they can sell it to raise much-needed funds for the library.
“Brùnaidh an Easain! It’s time you started living up to your name,” Peallaidh exclaimed.
“What?” Brùnaidh moaned. “You mean waterfall? And where am I to be finding a waterfall in this cursed place?”
“Sure and weren’t you just bursting water pipes this winter past?” Peallaidh chortled. “That would make a bonny waterfall.”
“Aye, and a wet basement besides, with gads of giant folks traipsing through our domain to try and fix and clean the mess,” Brùnaidh pointed out. “Now why would I be wanting to do that? Besides,” he paced the small space between the wall and the outer brickwork, his feet barely touching the floor as he walked. “I think this family may be our key. The little lass needs watching.”
“The one they call Mary?” Peallaidh queried. “I can’t see how she can help. She’s but a hen, and a wee one at that.”
“But a whole lot bigger than you and I put together,” Brùnaidh noted. “After all, we’re Brownies and, magic or not, there’s only so much we can do.”
