What Are You Reading?
"He was not cute in high school, as gingers often aren't, and then he grew into a hot ginger."
by Carrie Dennis
What are you reading?
Interesting that you ask that, because I was feeling really weird about reading this in public. This is called Money: A Biblical Perspective. It's about what the Bible says about how we spend and hold our money, and who we give it to, and how that matters in that way.
Are you religious?
I wouldn't use the word "religious," but I am a born-again Christian, so I will say that I have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and living in NYC, it can be really hard to deal with money. Hearing about it, spending it: it never stops. And where does it end? And I'm not immune to it at all, so I wanted to fix my perspective.
If you weren't actively trying to solve your financial problems with your reading choices, what would you be reading instead?
Another funny question, because I'm currently working my way through Harry Potter. I was really late to the Harry Potter game.
I'm not one to judge.
I'm in grad school to be a teacher, and we had it assigned as young-adult fiction, and I thought, ugh, whatever, fine, I'll read it. And I'm on book six. Last night I got into a fight with my roommate because she felt like I was giving her an attitude and I was like, "I'm reading Harry!" I can't focus on anything. It's taking over. That's why I didn't bring it out here, because if I did it's the only thing I would read. It is so good! I wish I could say I'm reading something better — I'm trying to be an English teacher.
Do you have a crush on Harry?
You know what the thing is? It's Ron who I love. I feel like no one likes Ron.
I have a thing for gingers.
Me too. I have a huge thing for gingers. A recent thing. I care about Ron — he's not the one you'd go to for advice, but he's just always there. And he's gotten mad a couple times because he's always getting the shaft, but he could've been a lot angrier about it. And things between him and Hermione are just — he's trying to break up with Lavender Brown right now…
Is your newfound ginger affinity based off of Ron?
No, it was based off of an interaction with a guy who went to my high school. And I was like, well, now I'm into gingers! He was not cute in high school, as gingers often aren't, and then he grew into a hot ginger.
Is reading a big thing in a relationship? Is there a book that someone might read that you would be like "I can't date you?"
Reading is a big all-around thing for me. I think if the only thing would be if they weren't really a big reader or if they stuck to, like, sports books. I shouldn't even say that. He just needs to be invested on some level with reading. He can be reading odd sports books, it's fine.
