Welcome to part three of five, in my reader series! If you missed Part 1 with Dee or Part 2 with V make sure to wander on over there to read those.
Author interviews are everywhere but what you rarely see are reader interviews and for an author those can be really important. What do readers like, what drives them away, how do you pull them in… and then keep them?
This month’s reader is a classics man and an atrist. With a thirst for new things and a love of old, Brandon is a well rounded reader who clutches to his favorites. Self admittedly he needs to read more, but sometimes it’s not how much you read that matters, but what you spend your time reading that is more important. Awhile back he took the time to sit down with me and chat about books.
Q: What genres do you read?
Brandon: Classics normally. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, Three Musketeers, which is my favorite. Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist. Books that you read in english class. Charles Dickens and Alex Dumas are really really good. They are classics for a reason. Jules Verne, Journey to the Center of the Earth. Books like that.
Q: Where do you get your books and if you bulk buy, what’s your desired format?
B: I have to have the book, simply because I don't have an ereader or go to the library. I actually buy the book so I can loan it out to friends or people who are going to read it. Plus it’s nice to have it.
