Earlier, I asked readers to fill out a questionnaire about their likes and dislikes. Several folks answered. This post is what reader Cindy wants.
Reader Questionnaire: What Reader Cindy Wants
(With a tip of the hat to the Inside the Actor’s Studio)
First Name: Cindy
Age Range: 61+
Occupation: Teacher/Reading Specialist (retired from full time; have tutoring business)
What occupation (other than yours) would you like to try? Vet tech – something where I could work with animals
What sound or noise do you love? The sound of a Native American flute across the canyons in Arizona
What sound or noise do you hate? Voices filled with hatred, people yelling at each other
What is your favorite word? Jesus
Fiction or Nonfiction? I like and read both…If I have to choose, I might lean toward fiction.
Genre? Historical fiction. (for nonfiction, spiritual writing)
Ebook, audio book, or physical book? Physical book!
What makes you choose a book to read? Author? Cover? Blurb? I consider all of these. I’m a reading teacher with pre-reading skills. Lol. (Again, if forced to choose, I’d go with blurb.)
What makes you put down a book? graphic violence, glorification of what I believe to be lack of morality
What are you reading now? The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel
Do you re-read books? If it’s been a very long time since I’ve read the book – except for the children’s books I read over and over.
All time favorite book:? Although for older elementary to middle school, this is a powerful, moving statement about the tragic side effects of war (true story, WWII, Japan). I have never read it aloud without crying. Faithful Elephants, A True Story of Animals, People and War, by Yukio Tsuchiya
If heaven exists, what would you want St. Peter to say? I know heaven exists, and I want to hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” (Although I especially want to hear this from the Lord.)
Hi, it’s Lynette here. Apologies to Cindy for delaying this post by a day. Cindy and I have know each other for a few years. Well, it feels like high school was just a few years ago.
Great answers, Cindy. Your favorite sound is a lovely, lovely sound. And isn’t it interesting that Cindy is also hooked by the blurb (among all the other things)? Thank you for participating.
Once again, thank you for visiting!
