Melody
I know I'm not supposed to blog today, because our company is having a Dinner & Dance tomorrow and I have tons of things to follow up and make sure everything is in order. But I figure I need a break, so here I am. I found this meme over at Stacy's and Wendy's blog and decided to tag myself.

What are you reading right now?
I'm currently reading The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes by Jennifer Crusie, Anne Stuart and Eileen Dryer. The story is about three sisters who have supernatural powers and their aunt is trying to play matchmaker so that she can steal their powers from them.

Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that?
I have two reading challenges coming up in September, so I will choose one of them from the lists depending on my mood.

What magazines do you have in your bathroom right now?
I don't keep magazines or any reading materials in our bathroom, because I don't like them being wet and dirty.

What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read?
Any working materials/reports that need translations. Yuck!

Admit it, the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they?
Well, not really, because I have not stepped into a library for a long time. However, the staff from the used bookstore that I frequently patronize do know my name, because I will usually call them up whenever I want to check out for any book.

What’s the one book you always recommend to just about everyone?
Hmm...this is tough. What I like in a book doesn't mean the other person will like it. But if I know that person well enough, I will also know his/her preference of books so I will try to recommend the same genre of books to her. But there were some occasions that I recommended some books to some friends and they happened to like it, and the feeling was so wonderful that I felt as if I have accomplished something great.

Do you read books while you eat? While you bathe? While you watch movies or TV? While you listen to music? While you’re on the computer? While you’re having sex? While you’re driving?
Depending on what kind of food I'm eating. It's fine if I'm eating a sandwich while reading, but it's a definitely no-no to me if I'm eating a bowl of noodles! And I can't imagine myself reading while bathing because I don't have a bathtub to lie back on, ha! I don't read while watching movies because it's so dark inside the theatre, unless you are talking about watching it at home. However I do read when the TV shows are boring or during the commericals break. I try not to read while listening to music because that will take away any one of the pleasure. And I don't read while I'm on the computer, unless it hang up on me and I want to pass the time while it reboots, LOL. Having sex?! What kind of a question is that? It's personal, you know, haha! But no, definitely no. This will be an insult to my husband. LOL! And I don't drive, so no problem here. ;-)

When you were little, did other children tease you about your reading habits?
No, not that I was aware of it.

What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. It was getting so intense towards the ending and not to mention a cilffhanger! I'm glad I have got a copy of the next installment Eclipse. But as my lists are full for the upcoming reading challenges, I will probably read this after the challenges, well...we shall see.

Right...now back to work!!!
