I started this feature here at ASR in order to know your fellow bloggers a little better! If you are interested in being featured please fill out the form.
How long have you been blogging? What made you want to start a book blog?
I started blogging November 26, 2011 after being a member of GoodReads for a few months. I just wanted my own space on the internet to share my thoughts on books. I had read a few blogs at the time, and it looked like something fun to do.
What do you do when you’re not blogging or reading?
I play The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, kind of obsessively.
What is your favorite part about blogging? Least favorite?
My favorite part is connecting with other readers. I’m super antisocial in “real life” and don’t talk much, so it’s nice to get comments on my reviews and knowing someone out there is interested in what I have to say. I’m not sure about my least favorite part. Maybe deciding what to read next; there’s too many books and too little time!
Where did you come up with the name for your blog?
Pinkindle is actually the name of my Kindle. I have the habit of naming my electronics “Pinky” (my iPod is Pinky 4.0 and my iPhone is Pinky 5) so I just combined Pink and Kindle to get Pinkindle.
Do you have any specific book bloggers that inspire you?
What do you look for in a blog when following? What are your pet peeves?
I mostly just look for bloggers who have similar tastes in books as me, and I do judge a bit by their design. If I don’t like how the blog looks I probably won’t come back. My biggest pet peeve is not being able to easily locate where to leave a comment! I’ve run across a few blogs that I wanted to comment on and could not find a link or comment box anywhere.
What’s your favorite book(s)?
What is the biggest turn off for you when you’re reading a book?
What first draws you to a book to make you want to read it?
The cover. Yes I judge books by their cover, but I’ll read the blurb next to make sure it’s something I may actually like.
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Eccentric. Pedantic. Unfashionable.
Name a random fact about yourself.
I don’t wear pants, except pajamas. I don’t even own a pair of jeans. Seriously.
Do you have a job? If so, what do you do?
Nope. I’m currently searching for one. It’s hard!
What did you want to be when you were little? Has that changed?
I wanted to work for the World Wildlife Fund, and that mostly hasn’t changed. It’s my dream job, but I don’t want to move.
Cats or dogs?
Dogs! I’m allergic to cats.
Hummingbird. I have one tattooed on my back. :)
White, dark, or milk chocolate?
Coke or Pepsi?
Ew, neither! I’m a Cherry 7up and Cranberry Splash Sierra Mist girl.
Favorite TV show?
Thanks for being here today, Angie! It was great getting to know you! :)
