Reader Kate Hearn's Interview


Pam Fudge talks to Kate Hearn about her reading preferences

What subjects or genres do you like to read?
Fiction – generally. Crime thrillers but any story I can really get my teeth into, I particularly like twist and turns and nothing too predictable. I also have a large library of non-fiction books relating to health and the natural energies within the body.

What attracts you to a book initially?
Simple covers usually and if the cover catches my eye then I turn it over to read the blurb on the back.

What would make you stop reading?
If I can’t get into the story or if the subject matter is particularly upsetting or frightening. I’ll then switch to another book. I don’t think I’ll ever stop reading. I’ll always have time for a book.

Favourite books?
Joanne Harris ’Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure’, ‘The Lollipop Shoes’ and ‘Blackberry Wine’.  I have a love hate relationship with this author as some of her books are awful. Playing the Jack by Mary Brown (I used to work with Mary), Second Best by Pam Fudge (I used to work with Pam, too).

Energy Medicine and Energy Medicine for Women by Donna Eden, Urban Warrior, Liberation, Dear Barefoot and The Man Who Drove With His Eyes Closed by the Barefoot Doctor.  Positive Energy and The Ecstasy of Surrender by Judith Orloff.  F**K It and F**K It Therapy by John Parkin

Do you have a preference regarding actual book or electronic?
Reading a book made of paper!  I love the feel and smell of a new book.   I am on the computer all day at work so really don’t want to use an electronic devise. To me that would not be relaxing.
