Community Reader Profile: Elizabeth Jones









Name:   Elizabeth Jones

Job Title:  Executive Director, North Shore Multicultural Society

Best book I have read this year:  Oh so many – Two that I loved were the The Tower, The Zoo, and the Tortoise, by Julia Stuart, and Miss New India, by Bharati Mukherjee.

Non-fiction – The Unlikely Utopia, by Michael Adams – and travel books.

I will read any book by: Khaled Hosseini, who wrote The Kite Runner. My fun reading is all about escaping into new worlds. I love to read books that centre on characters from different cultures that are set in different countries.  I like to explore. 

Best place to curl up with a book on a rainy day:  My living room.

Best place to lounge with a book in the sun:   Ambleside beach

A book I know I should read, but haven’t:  Oh so many … especially ones that are good for me.

A guilty pleasure favourite:  James Rollins’ latest, The Altar of Eden, and George R.R. Martin’s most recent, A Dance with Dragons.

The book I push on all my friends because it is soooooooo good:   The Stieg Larsson series starting with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
