Booky Interview

I did this interview for a blog. It never ran to the best of my knowledge. I’m sharing it here. These answers have almost certainly changed already.

Name:  Joanne C. Hillhouse
books 2018
Author/Blogger/Reviewer: Author (The Boy from Willow Bend, Dancing Nude in the Moonlight/Dancing Nude in the Moonlight 10th Anniversary Edition and Other Writings), Oh Gad!, Musical Youth, With Grace, Lost! A Caribbean Sea Adventure)/Blogger (Jhohadli and Wadadli Pen)/Reviewer (paid when I can find a market and just for fun in my blogger on books series)

What were your favourite books as a child?
Too numerous to mention BUT this post does cover some favourites among the literary heroines with whom I grew up.

What is your favourite book as an adult?
Oh, wow, this is HARD. I have all sorts of favourites and that well is too deep to draw from; so I’m going to pick, if you don’t mind, my favourite (so far) from among the books I’m reading now – A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James (ETA: This was true at the time when I wrote these responses some months ago).

Who is your favourite author?
Why are these so hard!? … okay, I’ll pick one… Edwidge Dandicat…and Maeve Binchy; so, two.

Who is your favourite character from a book?
Probably Janie from Their Eyes were watching God…or Louis from Interview with the Vampire…or Vito Corleone from The Godfather… yeah, I think we’re entering too numerous to mention territory again.

Where do you like to read?
I’d like to say something fancy like in a hammock between my two palm trees. But I don’t have a hammock, the palm trees have fallen ill to disease, and these days I mostly read in long lines; reading makes them move faster.

How often do you read?
I always have a book going; so any time there’s time.

Bookmarks or turn the page corner down?

Ebooks or real books?

Which three characters would you invite to dinner?
Hmmm maybe the four women from Waiting to Exhale could come catch me up on what they’ve been up to.

Are you a book hoarder or do you give your books away?
Both. I keep the ones that I can’t let go of… but I donate pretty regularly as well.
