BPM: What impact has reading had on you? 

Reading has been a stress reliever for us. It helps to take our mind off of things we may be going through. Reading has opened me up to new author and great discussions.

BPM: What impact has being in a organized group had on your life? 

GBC has been more then just a book club, it has been an outlet for me. All women face challenges, everyday, be it at home or in the work place. When we get together we open up our hearts to each other. This organization has led me to meet some wonderfully encouraging women. It’s like having an extended family.

BPM: What is your favorite genre of books?

This is a tough question. We enjoy Contemporary fiction, Memoirs, Biography, Self-help, Mystery, Romance, and other genres. Since we all have different personalities our taste in books varies. Books that relate to our everyday lives are the ones that remain on our mind long ever the books are closed.

BPM: How do you feel about electronic books?

As far as electronic book, I think its convenient and great. I think it depends on the person because some people want to collect the books they have read and some don’t.

 

BPM: Do you think our authors are leaving the same legacy as authors from other generations? 

Yes, I do think the authors of today are leaving the same legacy as authors from other generations and some are leaving even better ones!
