BOOKWORM INTERVIEW 15: WITH T.K KHAN (INDIE AUTHOR & GRAPHIC ARTIST)
Welcome back to the Fadima Mooneira bookworm interview series. For today's episode, I'm interviewing an Asian-American indie author and graphic artist named T.K Khan. T.K Khan is one of my fellow authors on Instagram. We became friends early this year. We like to chat about books, stories, and brainstorm some ideas on creative writing together. She's a very friendly, cool, and supportive person. Ok, now let's check out T.K Khan's profile and the interview...

1) When did you first start reading for pleasure?
I was three years old. I had just learned to read.
2) What was the first book you read?
This was the first book I read on my own when I was three. It was Disney's Cinderella.
3)Oh wow... I had that book too when I was a child. So what genre do you read?
What genre don't I read? I read a little bit of everything if it captures my attention. There is no one genre I stick to.
4) Do you judge a book by its cover?
I've read a lot of great books where I don't like the cover. I try not to let the cover sway me. But, there is something magical about a book cover with beautiful artwork.
5) What is your all-time favorite book/novel and why? Do you repeat read it?
My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. It's the ultimate rom-com with a happy ending. People still love it because love conquers all themes. And, who doesn't love happily ever after? I have repeatedly read it!
6) Oh that's awesome! Pride And Prejudice is one of my all-time favorite books too. So would you recommend your favorite book/novel to other bookworms?
I would recommend Pride and Prejudice.
7) Who is your favorite author?
I have two. Jane Austen and Rick Riordan.
8) What ambiance do you prefer for reading? Quiet at home? Or somewhere green and serene?
I can read in any environment. No matter where I am if I'm reading, a book will always grab my attention. It doesn't matter if it's a loud or quiet place in the book.
9) How's the reading culture in your country?
It's getting better but unfortunately, it's nowhere close to where it should be. People are starting to participate in book clubs more often. But, I think it's due to life and its obligations that people are reading considerably less in the United States. Also, before technology was at the height it is today, people turned to books for entertainment. Now we have multiple forms of entertainment and because of that people are reading less. Also, knowledge is now at your fingertips which makes looking things up in a book obsolete.
10) Do you have any ideas on how to improve the reading culture in your country?
I think one way to improve a country's reading culture is to prioritize education.
Ok, so these are all the questions I have for this interview. Thank you, T.K Khan, for spending your time with me, sharing your knowledge of books and the reading culture in your country. It's a pleasure to have you as a guest star on my blog today. As a fellow author, I wish you good luck and all the best in your writing career. I hope you'll become a very successful author in the future. Keep up your awesome work. You're doing great.
