Book Blogger Interview Swaps
Book Blogger Appreciation Week continues today with interview swaps and I've tweaked my Outside the Author's Studio feature in honor of the occasion. Today I'm stalking book blogger, Valerie from Life is a Patchwork Quilt.
Last thing you threw away: Kleenex- it's allergy season for me right now.
Your brand of toothpaste: Sensodyne (for sensitive teeth)
Three things in your purse: lip gloss, wallet, notepad (my contents aren't very exciting; I tend to keep my purse clutter-free).
Your favorite lawn ornament: Christmas decorations (at Christmas time of course).
A post idea that never made your blog: Right now I'm struggling with what I should say (or if I should say anything at all) about a book I couldn't finish, which was sent by the author. Help!
Name every book you reviewed in 2010: Wow, this would be too long :) I do have a tab on my blog that lists all the books I've reviewed on my blog.
Your favorite word- remember this is a family friendly blog. :) I'm not sure of what word I use or say the most, but I'd say my favorite word is "love." Not just for romantic love, but towards all fellow people-- the world would be a better place if we loved more and hated less.
Your least favorite word: "Can't." Yes you can, if you can figure out how and realize it might take a while to accomplish. I need to remind myself of this sometimes.
One lousy job from your past: Probably the one when our lab (I was once a microbiologist) had a truly evil boss. He constantly screamed and insulted us, all the time.
Something you do when you're not book blogging: When I am not reading, blogging, or spending time in my studio, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have three children: a 9th grader, a 7th grader, and a 4th grader. I try to keep up with life in general-- there are never enough hours in the day. I spend a lot of time chauffering my kids to and from after-school activities. :)
Valerie from Life is a Patchwork Quilt has been blogging since 1/2008. Her blog started out being more general, but now she devotes most posts to the books she reads. Valerie is an eclectic reader, which is reflected in her blog. Valerie also has some of her quilt art work on display on her website. After living in California, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, she and her family currently live in Colorodo.
Head over to Valerie's blog today to read the interview she did with me!
