What was the last book you read?
Advice
Interviewers like hearing that you read and look forward to learning from books! Share what book you last read. Did you read a great fiction book on the beach during your last vacation? Or, maybe you read an excellent business book this past month. Perhaps you and your spouse have been reading a marriage book together. Just share what book you last read!
Answer examples
"I love reading and am currently reading through the Harry Potter series. It is a different genre from the books I typically read, but I have great respect for the author and wish to challenge myself as a reader. My spouse is also reading it, and we enjoy sharing our perspectives on the series."
Entry Level answer example
"It seems the only books I have been reading are my university textbooks! I recently purchased 'When Breath Becomes Air' by Paul Kalanithi. I plan to read this during reading week."
Experienced answer example
"I usually have three books on the go at one time. Fiction, personal development, and historical. Currently, I am reading John Grisham's 'The Whistler,' 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle, and 'Killing the Rising Sun' by Bill O'Reilly."
