interview with Hamlette

Dear blogging world,

My family is in the middle of a rather complicated, rather chaotic move so, naturally, my time for writing blog posts has been cut back severely.  But I don’t want to leave all my followers without posts for several weeks, so I asked some friends if they would consent to being interviewed on my blog, as those posts would be both fun and interesting for all involved.  Quite a few agreed, so those interviews will pop up regularly over the next little while.  I’ll still be doing my Friday Finds posts whenever I’m able, but all other reviews and such will be on hold until my family and I are settled into our new home.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy the interviews!



Hamlette, over at Hamlette’s Soliliquy, is my first interviewee.


Favorite book series?  I love quite a few series, and I’m not sure I could pick just one favorite! The original Sherlock Holmes stories by A. Conan Doyle. The Russell/Holmes series by Laurie R. King. Patrick O’Brian’s books about Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin. The Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Anne of Green Gables series. The Mother-Daughter Book Club books by Heather Vogel Frederick. The Mitford books by Jan Karon. Rex Stout’s wonderful Nero Wolfe mysteries. I can’t choose!

Favorite animated movie?  Disney’s Robin Hood.

  1. Isn’t it funny how much he and his son look alike? I have actually never seen a movie with John Wayne in it . . . that’s something I really need to do. Any suggestions as to which films are best?

    Moving is always a lot of work–but I hope you enjoy your new home, Eva! 🙂


      • Thanks! I’ll make sure to try those, especially The Quiet Man–I’ve heard that it’s really beautiful, and I love Ireland, so it should be lots of fun 🙂
