Blog Hopping Fun!

Yes, It is that time of the week already!
Funny how time flies when there is so much fun to be had with reading and blogging.

Plus it is Christmas time.
There is plenty of bakery to be had.

I wish I made these!
Merry Steampunkery Holidays to Everyone!

Question: What did you study in college, or are currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different?
Mad Scientist:  Well my lovely gentle followers.  I just finished a small degree in Biological Sciences.  I am now currently working on a degree in Humanities, History (with a emphasis on war and torture), and Religious Studies.  I'm sure I will try to fit in others if I can.  The Mad Scientist is quite sure she is a student for life.  I love to learn!!

Hosted by Crazy for Books
What do you want to do with all of this knowledge?  Why but to be the hottest historian on the History, National Geographic, or Discovery Channel but of course.  It has been a dream since I was wee lass.  Yeah, my father groomed me! *smirk* 

Question: What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?
Mad Scientist:  I really enjoy the characters.  They are the reason I read... want to keep reading.  However, it is a plot with crazy twists that lead the characters to do odd and wonderful things!

  9. This might be the best Book Blogger Hop question I've seen to date.

    So what's the answer? Plot! Hop over to my blog and let me tell you how a good plot rescued bad characters from bad book oblivion.
