Serious question: How do you as bloggers feel about the decline of big box book retailers like Borders and Barnes and Noble. Not that Barnes and Noble is going to die! But if it did! Discuss.
Kim: Given that I work in a bookstore, I’m feeling pretty poorly about it. I think there’s a magic to a bookstore that you can’t get just by sitting in front of a computer perusing Amazon. I like walking into a bookstore, browsing and maybe conversing with staff about what’s hot or what they might have read recently that was amazing.
Not so serious question: As book bloggers, what is your most hated book/book character, and how would you prank them? Conversely, name a favorite, and describe how you would profess your love and get them to hang out with you.
Kim: Hated book character…. If I hate them, I apparently throw them right out of my mind since I can’t even think of one at the moment. Currently a favorite of mine is Warner from the Shatter Me book series. And I’m not sure I’d be able to hang out with him. He seems like a very intense individual, with strict habits. His interactions with the protagonist, Juliette, fall outside his normal behavioral patterns. So I feel I’d have to make him fall in love with me first before anything else. Haha, and that’s not something I’m sure I could do. Therefore I won’t profess my love. … And I answered that way too seriously.
Kendare Blake is an import from South Korea who was raised in the United States by caucasian parents. You know, that old chestnut. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Business from Ithaca College and a Master’s degree in Writing from Middlesex University in London. She brakes for animals, the largest of which was a deer, which sadly didn’t make it, and the smallest of which was a mouse, which did, but it took forever. Amongst her likes are Greek Mythology, rare red meat and veganism. She also enjoys girls who can think with the boys like Ayn Rand, and boys who scare the morality into people, like Bret Easton Ellis.
