Sunday Brunch with Jaffareadstoo ~ Els Ebraert

On this quiet Sunday morning why don't you put the kettle on, make your favourite breakfast, and settle down for Sunday Brunch with Jaffareadstoo

I'm delighted to welcome, Els Ebraert, blogger at BforBookreview

 ☼ Good Morning, Els. Happy Sunday!

What favourite food are you bringing to Sunday brunch? 

Hmm good question. I think I will go for something that typical for Belgium and what’s a brunch with something sweet? So expect me to arrive with Belgian waffels and chocolate of course. 

Would you like a pot of English Breakfast tea, a strong Americano, or a glass of Bucks Fizz? 

I’ll go for a glass of Bucks Fizz, please 

Which of your literary heroes are joining us today? 

I would love to meet Angela Marsons, Emma Tallon and Lisa Regan. I could invite a lot more of course 

What’s the title of the book nearest to you? 

It’s ‘Murder at the Dolphin Hotel’ by Helena Dixon

48210703. sy475

What’s the oldest book on your book shelf

I can’t really answer that. I have given all my paperbacks away for charity due to problems with my shoulder and I only have my Kindle now. The oldest books that are on there are only about 2 years old. 

Which book do you really want to read but haven’t had time for …yet! 

I almost finished reading the series by Betty Rowlands with Melissa Craig and I am looking forward to read the last ones. 

Do you have a guilty reading pleasure, and if so will you tell us about it? 

No, not really. I cannot easily say no when I see a new blog tour with a book that I find interesting. I don’t know is that counts? But I have learned to say no because I have found out that a day only has 24 hours. :) 

If the house was on fire which book would you rescue? 

Because I don’t have any paperbacks anymore, I simply have to take my Kindle, but I would certainly have rescued my Janet Evanovich series with Stephanie Plum 

Do you have a reading playlist on Spotify, or a favourite CD to listen to when reading? And if so will you share with us a favourite song or piece of music that makes you feel happy? 

I would be too distracted when there is music playing, but I love to have Eurosport on while I read. 

Do you have a favourite place to settle down to read? 

In the summer in the garden, in the winter on the sofa and every night in my bed before I go to sleep 

Give us four essential items that a blogger absolutely needs? 

A diary or 2 for scheduling blog tours. I use one on my phone and a paper one, trustworthy, 

Punctuality and honesty 

Tell us a little about your blog and why you are so passionate about books and reading? 

I started my blog because I wanted to share my love for books and then suddenly I was introduced to the world of blog tours and I thought it was wonderful. Of course you cannot read every book and that’s why I always want to help to spread the word. I also do guest posts, Q&A, spotlight posts or extracts. Any way I can help authors or publishers and I try to read as much as possible. 

My mum read and my sister reads too and I always saw books in our house. We had a lot of comic books and we were a big fan of Agatha Christie. We went to the library and when we were young reading was one of the things young people did. And I still enjoy it many years later. 

Where can we find you on Social media? 

I am on Twitter and on Facebook and together with a very good friend I run a Dutch book group on Facebook as well. We have been doing this since June 2012 already.
