Okay, it's not a perfect match; she "hates" poetry. But maybe she's had some of the bad experiences many of you have had and I can eventually win her over.
Here's my interview with Melissa:
How long have you been blogging about books, and what was your impetus for starting?
I started my book blog this January. I participated in Infinite Summer last year, where people read David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest over the course of the summer. It ended up taking me 7 months to finish that book because I am a master at procrastination, but when it was all finally over, I realized I didn't want to stop blogging about books (I'd been blogging about IJ on my other blog).
Have you always lived in Texas, or why do you identify yourself as strongly as a “Texican” as you do a feminist?
Who or what first inspired you to identify yourself as a feminist?
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced while blogging and what’s the best way it has affected your life?
What books do you wish more people were reading right now? What one piece of literature would you recommend that everyone read?
Which book has affected you or changed your life the most?
What is your least favorite book or genre, and why?
What author would you most like to ask a question of, and what would that question be?
Who would you vote for as the worst villain or most inspiring heroine in fiction, and what would be your criteria?
That's your introduction to Melissa. See her interview of me (including never-before-revealed details of my personal life) at The Feminist Texican [Reads].
