Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Bookstore interview

How to Answer

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!

What was the last book you read?
Answer example

"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

"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

"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."
