1. Bookmarks or dog ears? Bookmarks.
I don't like defacing books. Although now I have a Kindle, it's not a problem.
2. Dust jacket on or off when reading a hard back?
On. So I can use it as a book mark!
3. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
4. What are you reading right now?
I like to have a few books on the go at one time. So I'm reading the Tony Curtis book about Some Like It Hot (which is possibly my favourite film), Steve Hely's 'How I Became A Famous Novelist', and 'Reading Like A Writer' by Francine Prose
5. Do you have a favorite author?
Probably David Mitchell. Cloud Atlas is the most incredible book. Though he's such a good writer he makes me want to give up writing and go and retrain as an accountant or something.
6. Was there a book that inspired you to write?
Nick Hornby's High Fidelity. It made me think there might be an audience for the kind of thing I wanted to write, so I sat down and tried to produce something as good. Six novels later, I'm still trying.
7. Do you have a favorite place to write?
Airplanes, funnily enough. No distracting internet.
8. How does your garden grow?
I have pot plants. And by that I mean plants in pots, not, you know, pot.
9. What is the last thing you Googled?
*checks history* myself.
10. What makes you cringe?
Please be sure to order Matt's book right now!
DescriptionEver wish you could let the world know just what you think of your ex?
Thanks to SlateYourDate.com, Dan Davis has discovered that long after he's dumped them, ex- after ex-girlfriend is dumping on him-all over the Internet. And it's ruining his dating life.
Faced with the prospect of a lifetime of singledom, Dan must track down his many exes in order to put things right. Along the way, he discovers he has much to learn about himself. Particularly when he meets up again with Polly-and realizes he wants her back. Can Dan convince his former love he's changed? Can his friend Ed convince him he needs to change in the first place? And can the two friends use their newfound knowledge to help other men in the same boat?
