Listen: Do you ever listen to audio books, and if so, what are advantages to listening to them over reading physical books?

Watch: Apparently many hardcore Star Trek fans are actually put off by the recent movie–because it’s so good. They feel like giving it a broad appeal is devaluing it by taking it out of their niche. Do you think that’s silly, or do you see where they’re coming from? Have you ever felt that way about something that was once in your subculture but is no longer considered a “sub” culture?

Read: Any authors you’ve been wanting to check out, but still haven’t come around to it?

No, I don't listen to audio books. My mind wanders too much, I need a visual.

I think it is a little silly, but I guess I see where they are coming from too. I've felt that way about bands before when I've been a hardcore fan for years and then suddenly they have a huge hit and become really well known.

Any authors you’ve been wanting to check out, but still haven’t come around to it? Not really. I've heard good things about those shopaholic books but haven't read any yet.

I think it's silly. Good is good. My husband is a lifelong Trek fan and he liked the movie, and he thinks the hardcore fans are being silly.
