Friday 24th Oct 2014
This is a busy old time for Mr B’s, what with the recent launch of our publishing company Fox, Finch and Tepper (check out the website www.foxfinchtepper.com) and some fantastic events on the go, we have managed to fit in another surprise for all our fellow book worms out there.
We want this blog to become an extension of the shop for everybody, somewhere you can come and have a moment of peace in a chaotic day, where you can read, think and talk about books to your hearts content.
The first treat to appear on these pages will be a series of interviews with some of our favourite authors. We have tasked them all to answer the same 8 questions (included at the bottom of this post if you want to join in and see how yours compare!) and every Wednesday a new interview will be released for your perusal! We are absolutely delighted to announce that our first author will be none other than the fantastic Margaret Atwood, with answers sure to give you much to ponder over.
If you want to get involved and discuss each weeks interview you can hop on to twitter and use #theMrB’sWeekly or email the B Team here at firstname.lastname@example.org
As promised here are the questions:
1) If you were to be stuck in a lift for three hours with any character from literature, who would it be?
2) What was the last book that produced an out pouring of emotion in you? A snort of laughter or tears into a handkerchief?
3) Which book do you really wish you had written?!
4) What book did you make your parents read and re read to you when you were younger?
5) What one passage from any book you have read has always stuck with you and why?
6) What is the current read on your bedside table?
7) We know you are not meant to judge a book by its cover but we all do, so confess…tell us which book you read purely down to aesthetics, and did it live up to your expectations?
8) You meet a person who is not a reader at all but they’re prepared to give it a go with your ONE suggestion….what book do you press into their hands?
We look forward to hearing your answers!
