How often do you like to read?
“I used to read at least every day, ranging from one hour to even up to four of five, depending on how into the book I was reading. I would often forget the time, and get yelled at for staying up too late. Currently, because of VCE, I have not been able to read books as often as I would like, and read about 1/2 – hour everyday in short bursts in between the work I’m doing, as a break.”
What do you like to read ?
“I’m mostly into mystery, fantasy and action books but lately I’ve been into more science books. Most books will satisfy me, as long as it’s good. I like to think of myself as someone who has read a lot of genres, and my bookshelf is proof of that.”
List one book that has left a lasting impression on you and explain why it’s memorable . . . . .
“It’s really hard to list just one book for this, as I’m a huge fan of Lord of the rings, and I’m currently slowly reading the Ian Fleming James Bond collection, and I can’t pick between the books. Instead I’m going with a science book (if you could even call it that) called “What If?”, the first book that really got me into the genre. . . . . It’s a book which has “Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions”. It was a blast to read, and I have re-read it many times. It’s my go to book when I have time to kill and want to read something short and engaging. It has a fair amount of answers in there, with one of my personal favourites being “what if a baseball was pitched at 90% the speed of light?”. If someone likes science, and wants to read a book about it, but does not want to get too technical, I would recommended this book in a heart beat.
