Bottoms Up feature-Kathy

I am hosting my first reading challenge this year.  The Bottoms Up 2010 Reading Challenge requires you to read off the bottom of your TBR pile.  You can still sign up, follow the link for more information. 

I wanted to take the chance to feature the people who have signed up for the challenge.  Each week, watch for a new mini-interview from a different participant.  Be sure to stop by their blog and cheer them on!

This week will feature Kathy from Inside of a Dog.
Hi Kathy, I am excited you decided to participate in the challenge!

1. Please tell us a bit about yourself.
KM: My name is Kathy Martin. I am a 59-year-old School Library Media Specialist. I am single and a native Minnesotan. I began my love affair with books in the fourth grade and the love lasts to this day.

2. Please tell us about your blogs.
KM: I began my blog -- Inside of a Dog -- almost two years ago now. My first post was on January 24, 2008. I began my blog as a part of the 23 Things on a Stick project coordinated by the multitype libraries in Minnesota to teach librarians and media specialists about Web 2.0 tools. After the project was over, my blog languished. Then, last January, I took part in the second round of 23 Things on a Stick and decided that blogging was kind of fun.

I decided to focus this blog on books and reading with a few side trips for other bookish things. There might be side trips into movie reviews of movies made from books too.

I just started a new blog over Christmas Break -- Ms. Martin Teaches Media -- to focus on my job related stuff.

3. What kind of books to you like to read?
KM: I read most kinds of genre fiction. I have gone through many phases. From science fiction to romance to mystery and back. My current favorite kinds of books are paranormal romances and urban fantasy. I also read a lot of YA books and Middle Grade books for both work and pleasure but they are mostly paranormal and fantasy too.

4. OK, time to come clean. How many books are in your TBR pile?
KM: I am almost embarrassed to tell but my LibraryThings says that I have 489 books tagged TBR. This will only be true until Monday. More books are on the way. (Book buying may be an addiction, but it is a relatively harmless one. I can still afford to eat and live indoors.) I used to say I was stockpiling books for summer vacation reading. Now I say that I am gathering books for my retirement.

5. What is your reading goal for the Bottom's Up challenge?
KM: I would like to read at least two books a month from deep in my TBR pile. Three would be even better but I don't know that I will get there. Too many new ones look too good to resist.

Thank you and good luck in the challenge!
Happy Reading
