Name: Rachel
Furbabies: Not anymore. Had a Daschund, Oliver, but gave him to my dad when we moved to the city...he was too scared of all the sounds.
Favorite place to read: I like to be in the lawn chair outside in the shade. But it's been too hot, so anywhere I can get some quiet time!
Have you ever read a self-help book? If so, what?: Not my type of reading. I did read "The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy" because a friend recommended it. I enjoyed it, but I find most books like this are like pulling teeth to get through.
Name 3 things you cannot live without: Only 3? I guess I have to choose my Kindle (I'd prefer paperbacks...but this would more books! hehehe!), a piano/keyboard, and iPhone!
If you only had one genre to pick from for the rest of your life, what would it be?Paranormal/Urban Fantasy. I love them both...to me they are two separate genre's...but I have a lot of people try to convince me they are the same.

Furbabies: Nope, not right now!
Favorite place to read: In my bed.. the one place I NEVER get to read AHAH!
Have you ever read a self-help book? If so, what?: 7 Habits? I actually did the whole course... 2 days of "exercises"and Paradigm shifts. I read the whole book after I was done. And proclaimed it propaganda! And took a few useful ideas from it LOL!
Name 3 things you cannot live without: Computer; onion dip, toothpicks
If you only had one genre to pick from for the rest of your life, what would it be? Horror... fo SHO!

Name: Stephanei
Furbabies: Etta, a black and white cat
Favorite place to read: In the sun on a comfy chair with a tasty snack.
Have you ever read a self-help book? If so, what?: I've read parenting books.
Name 3 things you cannot live without: books, my phone and a watch. Yes, I know there is a clock on the phone - - it's not the same!! I've had a watch on my wrist every day since grade 7! Lol.
If you only had one genre to pick from for the rest of your life, what would it be? Hmmm... toughy. I think I'd say YA, because there is variety within that (my favourite part of reading is variety!) and there are so many series that I LOVE to read. But, if that's cheating I think I'd say historical fiction.

If you only had one genre to pick from for the rest of your life, what would it be? Country.
