A Note to Amazon Readers (and a Q&A) from Valerie Bertinelli
Dear Amazon Customer,
Glad to see you here and hopefully purchasing my book. I've heard if you buy multiple copies it's a better experience--a better one for me! But seriously, I'm usually on Amazon, too. I've been buying books through the site for ten years. I enjoy reading the reviews. I get a good sense of the book, and I like to hear what other people have to say. Like in a traditional bookstore, I can look at the cover, peek inside the book, and check out the bestseller lists.
- Do you have a favorite character from a book? I love Scout and Atticus from To Kill A Mockingbird.
- If you can be any character from a book, who would you like to be? I would like to be Scarlett and I would let Rhett know how much I love him.
- How do you decide what next book you want to read? If its for my book group, whoever hosts the next gathering picks the book, so its picked for me seven out of eight times. But on my own, I read reviews and ask people whose taste I like what theyre reading.
- Wheres your favorite place to read? Either lying in bed or on the sofa next to the fireplace.
- What is your favorite genre? I dont really have one.
