Read All Over – Sara Bynoe

POSTED September 20, 2010 BY Lizzy Karp

Read All Over celebrates the bookworm in all of us, showcasing readers in Vancouver and the books they love most.

Besides reading Sara Bynoe can be found writing, riding her bike, practicing yoga, Dance Dance Party Partying and hosting Say Wha?! Readings of Deliciously Rotten Writing a comedic reading show of really, really painful published writing. The next Say Wha?! is Wednesday September 22 at the Cottage Bistro and as part of the Vancouver Comedy Festival, with a fantastic cast of out-of-town comics, on Saturday September 25. SaraBynoe.com

What book makes you feel like a kid again?

When I read the Harry Potter series I felt like a kid again, except that when I was a kid I read crap like Christopher Pike and The Baby-sitter’s Club.

The one book you always recommend is…

A Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers, especially the acknowledgments.

What books have changed your life?

Teen Angst: A Celebration of REALLY BAD Poetry changed my life is more ways than I can describe.

I just read Lydia Davis The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis and it blew my mind. How did I not know about her until recently?! (Thanks to my friend Kevin O’Neill!)

How do you like your books served up best – audio books, graphic novels, used paperbacks, library loaner, e-reader…

I do: audio books (because I get sick if I read in planes or cars), the library, new and used.  I’ve yet to try those e-reader things. I’m a little skeptical about it. I love holding a beautifully bound book. However, I do find them appealing as I’ve spent the last two years basically living out of a suitcase and got rid of most of my book collection.

Your life story is published tomorrow. What’s the title?

Not Easily Embarrassed

or

Seriously Unserious

or

Sara (no H) B-Y-N-O-E

Librarian vs. English Professor – Who is sexier?

Librarian because I used to work at a library. No… English Professor because I met a few beautiful minds while doing my MA. Screw it- they’re both hawt.

Where is your favorite place to crack open a good book in Vancouver?

My bed.
