Ellen Wrin tagged me to answer some questions here, then come up with questions for other bloggers to answer. Here are my answers -  Like some others, I'm using the same questions.
The Tag rules:
1. You must post the rules!
2. Answer the questions and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them.

1. If you could live in a fictional world, where would that be?
It's a toss up between Middle Earth and Pandora (isn't that the world in Avatar?)
2. Do you read in noisy or quiet places?
- Either, if I'm into something noise doesn't bother me.
3. What was the first book you ever read?
- Planet of Death by Robert Silverburg.

4. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?
- Hoot.

5. Favorite author?
- Carl Hiaasen

6. Do reviews influence your choice of reads?
- Nope.

7. Fiction or Nonfiction?
-Fiction now. When I was younger, I only wanted nonfiction. Mostly electronic, music, or computer stuff.

8. Have you ever met your favorite author?
- No.

9. Audio books or Paperbacks?
- Both. I'm reading 3 print books, and 1 audio. One of my day jobs is a chainsaw carver, I listen to audio while I carve. Most carvers listen to music, it's too boring though I love music.

10. Classic or Modern Novels?
- Modern.
11. Book Groups or Solitary Reading?
- Solitary. I guess my book group would be my wife and I, we try to listen to the same audio book at the same time. She carves too, when we are not doing magic.

I copied and pasted into the reply and changed inserted my answers.

Okay now it's your turn.  I don't think I have enough people to tag 11 more, so I will tag the folks I have on my list that hasn't been tagfd.  If I tag you and you have already done this, you can play again if you want.


  1. I don't usually do these, but I loved the questions about our reading habits. I think it's good to remind ourselves what we like as readers so we don't forget those things when we're writing.

    1. Thanks for tagging me. I think it is neat to learn about other writers.

  2. You can read 4 books at once? The most I can handle is three. I try to stick to two most of the time.

    1. I am reading two fiction and one nonfiction. I go through a lot of audio books. At our local library they don't have a wide selection of MG or YA on audio, so most of them are adult books. It passes the time very well while working outside.

  3. Chainsaw carver?! Wow, that's awesome. And very cool that both you and your wife carve. Do you have pictures of your art? I'd love to see pics =)

  4. Yeah, I gotta keep my day job for now. Here are three links.

  5. That's so fun, Rick! Both the answers and the links. Gosh, I love your woodwork!

  6. It's great you and your wife share similar interests (and book preferences)! Loved reading your answers.
