Featuring Gina of Dickensblog

Today please welcome Gina, 
who blogs at Dickensblog.


What's the meaning behind the name of your book blog?

I wanted a name that immediately told people who and what the blog was about.

How long have you been blogging?

I've had this blog for over five years now.

Tell us a bit about your book blog. What makes it unique?

I believe it's the only blog out there that focuses exclusively on Charles Dickens and his works.

What genres do you write about most, and why?

Classics, for obvious reasons. :-)

What's your earliest memory of reading?

I was about three, reading some book about Karen Kay's kitten!

What was the first book you read over and over, or the book you've reread the most?

The Bible (New King James version).

Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?

I used to. Not any more. I dog-ear corners, though!

What's your favorite place to read?

Pretty much anywhere!

Do you have any reading accessories you can't do without?

Just a bookmark.

Finish the sentence: My bookshelves are...


My TBR pile is...


What's a book that's changed your life?

The Man Born to Be King by Dorothy L. Sayers.

What's one book that you like that no one else seems to, or vice versa?

I sometimes feel like the only person in the world who doesn't care for the writings of Anne LaMott.

What's one book that intimidates you?

Moby Dick.

How about non-book related hobbies? What do you do when you don't feel like reading?

Play piano, garden, swing dance.

What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?

My favorite is the Little Dorrit miniseries from 2008. It wasn't flawless, but it was really, really good!

What is your reading personality? (via quiz at http://www.bookbrowse.com/quiz/)

I'm an All-Rounder.
