Pop Quiz


I found Pooky's Pop Quiz yesterday and it looked like fun, so I thought I'd take it too.

1. Have you read 50 Shades of Grey? Have you read the other two books in the trilogy?
I've started reading 50 Shades but am having a hard time getting into it. The first few chapters are pretty dull, but Morningstar, who has been involved in BDSM for many years, found a passage that made her squirmy, so I will try again. If I finish it, then I'll decide whether or not to read the other two books.

2. Have you read any other spanking fiction?
Oh, yes, quite a lot. It's a regular feature on my blog every Monday.

3. Did you start reading them before or after 50 Shades?
Decades before.

4. Where do you find the best books? Amazon, Blushing Books, Lulu, other.
Usually I shop for books the old-fashioned way—in bookstores. For online purchases I shop at Indigo or Amazon.

5. Have you ever written any spanking fiction?
Yes, I have written a few stories; two of them are here and here. I find fiction difficult to write, so I stick to describing real-life adventures.

6. Do you follow Pk's Fantasy Fridays? Have you ever written for her?
PK published one of my early attempts at fiction here.

7. Have you Read Clint's Bootcamp Book? Did you participate in it after you purchased it?
Double negative.

8. Are you a reader in real life? How serious?
I have always enjoyed reading, and have an extensive and eclectic library.

9. Do you generally purchase your reading material, check it out at the library, or borrow from a friend?
I usually buy books, either new or second-hand. My husband exchanges books with a friend, and I sometimes read those.

10. Are you more likely to leave a review if you loved the book or hated it?
I don't normally leave reviews because I never think of doing it, but it would be a good idea to leave a review with an honest opinion of the book, positive or negative.

Bonus Question: Are there any famous writers in Blogland we should be aware of?
There are many, many excellent writers out there. Just go to My Bottom Smarts and look for the blogs in yellow in the Kindred Spirits blogroll.

Will you join me? Copy and paste the questions and answer them on your blog. Or if you prefer, leave your answers right here in a comment. Either way, it's fun to know how many other avid readers there are out there.

Thank you Hermione for providing us some insight into your reading habits.

Thanks Hermione. I might just have to do this next week.

I hope Ron doesn't pick up one of your spanking books by mistake and exchange it with his friend:)


Bas said...

Thanks Hermione. Another blogger confesses to being an enthusiastic reader. Not surprised in this case.
Did you ever read the Harry Potter series? No spanking, but there is this wise and learned, spunky girl that looks just like you.

Loved reading! The reason I read off my computer and nook for spanking fiction, is just so someone doesn't accidentally pick up the intense stories! Yikes!!

It seems as if our whole community is filled with avid readers. Is that a surprise - I think not.

Thank you Hermione, I didn't know about Blushing books until I read item #4, and found several ones on spanking. Here is the link:

I have seen this a lot lately around the blog world lately, but always happy to read different answers!

Hermione said...

Joey - I enjoyed doing it.

Ronnie - Wouldn't that be funny! I did offer him my copy of Heart and Soul because his friend has had heart surgery.

Bas - Yes indeed, I have read them all. That's where I found my nom de plume.

Minelle - That's a very good idea, as long as you don't have to share either.

Sunnygirl - No surprise, since we bloggers are all writers too.

Red - Thank you.

Dave - Thanks for the link.

Julia - I've read several too, and enjoyed them all.

I love to read, and have an eclectic collection of books too.
Have you read Chelsea Handler's "My Horizontal Life?"
I was surprised to come across a spanking scene in the story "Overboard" which is really funny.


Hermione said...

Renee Rose - It was my pleasure.

Kiki - No, I haven't read that one, but it's now on my list.
