One Question Interview Blog Tour featuring Lauren Baratz-Logsted!

Today, I have a very special guest here on Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf. Who's that guest, you may ask? Well, no one other than the lovely Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of the upcoming The Education of Bet (July 2010!) and The Twin's Daughter (August 2010!) among many others. As part of the One Question Interview Blog Tour, she'll be answering a question of mine! So, without a further ado, here's my question and her answer!


Everyone has guilty pleasures (T.V. shows, movies, books, etc.), so what are some of yours?

People think that with my productivity schedule - I have four new books out this year - that I must be all work and no play. In fact, I engage in all the guilty pleasures you cite, including that wonderfully vague and provocative category of "etc."

TV: I will not wax on about my beloved General Hospital because I already did that at Liz Burns' excellent site: http://yzocaet.blogspot.com/2010/05/interview-lauren-baratz-logsted.html. But I will say, I'm not one of these writers who regards television with my nose held in the air. I happen to love TV: poltical shows, the aforementioned GH, American Idol, House, Friday Night Lights, plus various series we watch on DVD.
Movies: I haven't gotten to go lately as much as I'd like but the movies I'm most interested in seeing that are in theatres now are Iron Man 2, Letters to Juliet, and the one about the dragon.
Books: I typically read a couple hundred books a year and I read eclectically: adult, YA, contemporary, historical, literary, commercial. Some of the books I've read in 2010 that I'm most enthusiastic about are: for adults, Dan Chaon's Await Your Reply and Anne Lamott's Imperfect Birds; for teens, Gail Giles' Shattering Glass and Stephen Herrick's Cold Skin.
Etc: Oh, you're not going to trick me into telling you that - some things must remain a mystery!
Thanks, Lauren. (Cool name you have, by the way. ;) ) Anyway, to find out more about Lauren check out her site, as well as my previous posts involving her and her books! And be sure to check out the next stop on the tour at Shauna's website and the previous one at Hope's.
