Questions and Answers 

  • Imagine that an alien from Mars comes to visit you. He wants to learn about what it means to be human, but he only has time to read three-five books before he goes and encounters the rest of humanity. What books would you give him to read?

I am embarrassed to say that I haven’t read many books outside of academic books within the last 5 years. I have never taken a break from schooling and because of this majority of my time has been spent reading psychology and criminology books. I hope it is okay that these are my suggestions.
Crime Victims: An introduction to Victimology– The alien needs to know and understand the various levels that people and affected by crime and ways to help them.
Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach – Everyone including an alien can benefit from learning more about mental illnesses.
Power thoughts: 365 Daily Affirmations– Let’s teach Mr. and Mrs. Alien some positive habits and ways of thinking.
2019 is my year to read more books. I finally have more time on my hands and I will be spending it with my head buried in books.

    I have the same book-related problem as you, in that all the books I’ve read in the past several years have been academic ones. I love to learn, but at this point I’m hungry to read something more creative and personal. As for your answer to the food question, I DO eat pizza almost every day. Eventually I’ll have to cut back, because cheese and arteries don’t go well together, but pizza’s just so delicious! Lastly, I love your response to the superpower question! The fact that you’d choose to heal people shows that you’re a very caring person 🙂

  • BeckieWrites

    What great responses! Thanks so much for recommending my little chapbook. You made me blush. That’s really sweet. I think your recommendations for the hypothetical alien are also quite brilliant. It would be important for the Martians to understand human psychology! I would like to read “The Last Black Unicorn.” I’ve heard it is very funny. Happy New Year!

    I just love your personality so much! I am so glad that I “met” you. Your positivity and outlook on life always lifts me up. Living with chronic pain, it is very important to me to have positive people in my life and so I’m glad you are one of them. Your blog is amazing by the way.
    I am honored that you nominated me and I will try hard to respond to this challenge. Thank you for your continued support my friend.
