That's right people! It's Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I had the honor and privilege of meeting and interviewing the man behind http://unfinishedperson.com. Here is my interview with him, I hope you enjoy!



What sort of books do you like to read and review?

Mostly mysteries and crime thrillers. I've tried to read others, but keep coming back to my "core" of mysteries, for  example, Agatha Christie. If you look at the books I've read and reviewed over the last few years, you'll see most of them are mysteries and crime thrillers.

Speaking of Agatha Christie, I'm also involved in the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge, which this month is having a blog tour to celebrate what would have been Christie's 120th birthday this month.

How long have you been blogging?

Too damned long.

Oh, I mean, five years this October.

What made you decide to start your blog?

Well, this blog that I have now (unfinishedperson.com) was started to be "a portal into one unfinished person’s life, especially through three elements of not only who he is, but who we all are: body, mind and soul."

You’re the "Unfinished Person" and “Unfinished Rambler”. What made you choose that name?

Unfinished Person was easy, because I feel I am an Unfinished Person. As for Unfinished Rambler, it was just a natural  extension, and because I like to ramble.

Describe your blog for us in 6 words. (Any 6 words, sentence not required.)

Supercalifragilistic without the extraneous expialidocious stuff.

Book Related:

What two fictional characters would you want to meet the most?


Owen Meany and Hercule Poirot.

If you had a $1,000 gift card to your favorite book store and only half an hour to spend it, which section of the store would you head to first?

Poetry.

Any new book or author discoveries that you’re particularly excited to share?

Within the last couple of years, I've discovered Donald E. Westlake and he is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. As for new books, I try to steer clear of them for the most part, but when I do veer toward them, it's usually toward those penned by independent authors such as Rob Kroese, author of Mercury Falls, or Ron Cooper, author of the soon-to-be-published Purple Jesus. I'm also reading the latter as part of a read-along with J.C. Montgomery of The Biblio Blogazine.

Random:

What’s your favorite activity, other than reading?

At this time of year, fantasy football.

What city would you absolutely love to live in?

The Emerald City but minus the munchkins.

At the end of a long, hard day, what do you do to de-stress?


Play Bejeweled Blitz.

Is there anything you want the readers of your blog to know about you that you have not yet revealed?

Nope.






A Bit More:
Posts dealing with books mostly are penned by Unfinished Person and can be found under several categories including most prominently The Sunday Salon and  Midweek Review.

Thanks for the interview. I sincerely enjoyed interviewing you and also being interviewed by you. Now to go read the other 150-plus interviews...ahem (or not). ;)

There interviews are wonderful - learning so much about so many fantastic book bloggers - do you know any better people?

Trish said...

Fun questions! Can you imagine how much poetry one could by with $1,000?? Too much! :)

Valerie said...

I have to admit I think I'd head for the poetry section first, too -- poets deserve our support, for one thing! But I think that buying $1000 worth of poetry books all at once would wipe out most bookstore poetry sections -- they seem to be ever shrinking :-(.
