Question #1: Where and when do you read?
Unfortunately, I do not read as much as I would like to – mostly on the sofa, in the train and in bed the minutes before I fall asleep. And on holiday at the beach …
Question #2: Which book have you most given as a present?
I think that’s the book “Schnauze, Alexa! Ich kaufe nicht bei Amazon” (“Shut up, Alexa!”), a small book which contains all the arguments why we shouldn’t shop at Amazon – written by Johannes Broeckers in a very personal, humorous style.
Question #3: What do you remember about your first book fair?
On my first book fair I worked for Campus and I remember sitting nearly all the time in a small cabin at our booth – meeting many nice people, but seeing very little from the rest of the fair.
Question #4: Tell us the resolutions you have made for this year.
My resolution for 2020: I want to learn play guitar and started to take classes together with my son.
Question #5: Tell us about a bad habit, an obsession or a particular attitude you have picked up since starting to work at Westend.
I have daily little “fights” with Tiger, our publishing dog – I annoy my colleagues a little bit when I fight with Tiger for his ball. But he also gets tasty treats from me.
