“I like quiet, green places with trees.”
First year Literary Studies major, Claire Lober, interviewed first year Creative Writing and Psychology double major, Sarah Carnes, at the Fall 2014 Literary Studies Program event, Don’t Read Alone.
Q: What are your favorite genres?
A: I like reading dystopias, poetry, fiction, and teen romances, as long as they are reasonable.
Q: What did you read over the summer?
A: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. I loved this book. I read The Fault in Our Stars. I also read If I Stay.
Q: How do you read differently for fun rather than for class?
A: I read faster when it’s for fun. I get as much as I can out of the book. For school, I have to slow down to remember everything for quizzes. I don’t have to as much for college, but it is still faster to read for fun. I like to pull out good quotes.
Q: Where do you like to read?
A: Outside. I like quiet, green places with trees.
Q: What would you like to do with your major?
A: Within my four years at Otterbein as an English major, I want to plot the storyline for a bigger work of fiction.
