Amy S. reads… #carolinareads

41cbzufdysl-_ux250_What’s the first book you remember reading?
I loved the Berenstain Bears when I was little. I’m not sure if those were the first books I read, but they’re probably the first that made a lasting impression. I actually think that’s where my love for book series began!

What’s the most recent book you have read or what are you reading right now?
I just finished The Children of King Henry VIII by Alison Weir.

Why did you choose that book?
I’m a huge history geek, especially when it has anything to do with medieval England. I’d read Weir’s The Six Wives of Henry VIII, which was fascinating, so I really wanted to roll with it and read about the children. Next on my list in that department is Weir’s book about Elizabeth I.

If you could meet one book character or one author, who would you like it to be and why?
That is a really tough question! I’ll go with Jane Austen. She seems to have had a lot of snark and attitude, which I appreciate. Plus, I’d like to ask why she didn’t have more dialogue in Pride & Prejudice. We like to see people talking, not just read a summation about what they said!

You can only choose five books for your bookshelf. What are they?
The Hobbit. Pride and Prejudice. Sea of Monsters. Death on the Nile (Agatha Christie). A Maze of Murders (C.L. Grace).

Join the movement!
I want to promote reading. I know there are so many out there who have read a book and thought, this is something others need to know about. Reading encourages a lifelong passion for learning. #carolinareads is a movement that will give readers a chance to share what they are reading. There is a five question interview. I will share it on my website and give you a chance to not only promote your love of reading but also to promote yourself as you can include a website in your two sentence biography. Don’t live in the Carolinas? Well, do you know someone who does (hint: the person who created this form) you can still participate. Submit the form and I’ll let you know the date of your spotlight. Spread the word! Join the movement. Please email a picture if you would like it to be included.
