13. Do you reread a lot? Why (not)? Name a book you have reread many times.

I do!  I generally have at least one book I'm reading at any given time that's a reread.  Sometime it's a comfort thing, sometimes it's nice to have a book I can pull out of my purse and just open anywhere if I need to randomly have something to do for a few minutes, sometimes a book is so awesome I need to reread it the same way I'd watch an episode of TV or a movie again.  Besides my favorite books and authors that I've previously mentioned, I've reread David Brin's Uplift series several times.

14. What is the best book you’ve read in the past year?

I was quite taken with The Monstrumologist.  Very scary, very well-written, intensely dark.  

15. Do you recommend books to other people? If you could force everyone you know to read one book, what would it be?

I...don't.  I find that no one ever actually reads books I recommend?  So I sorta gave up on that.  Every now and then (like, really every now and then), I'll convince someone to try a book I like, but it's so rare that I don't usually bother.  I would definitely try to make everyone I know at least read the first 100 pages of Red Mars.  Give it a shot!
