What are you reading and why?

I am currently reading ‘The Da Vinci Code’ by Dan Brown, because it has a very complicated plot, and because I am interested in the mystery genre.

What are some of your favourite books and authors?

Authors – Dan Brown, Derek Landy, Will Hill.

Do you have a favourite film of a book?

‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ by Lemony Snicket.

Do your ever cheat and read the end of the book first?

No, I prefer to understand the plot first, to get the most out of the book.

Do you skim the boring bits or read every word?

If I am desperate to finish a book, & there are long descriptive areas, I often skim over them.

What was the last book you received as a gift?

For my birthday recently, I received about 10 Agatha Christie’s.

Are you a constant reader or are there times when you don’t read at all?

I am a constant reader – every day, every night.

Which book is by your bedside right now?

‘The Da Vinci Code’ by Dan Brown, ‘Angels & Demons’ by Dan Brown and ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ by Derek Landy.

If you could spend one day with your favourite book character, who would you choose?
