Julie Rugg


Genre


Julie Rugg lives in York with her husband and daughter. An early memory is winning a bet at the age of twelve to read the full 888-page Warren Commission report of the assassination of John F. Kennedy (he dies in the end), but failing in the subsequent challenge to read The Silmarillion (much less compelling). The episode taught her that life is too short to read Tolkien. However, she continues to read largely indiscriminately, and a current favourite is Ten Minutes to Bedtime.

“People who say they don't have time to read simply don't want to.”
Julie Rugg, A Book Addict's Treasury

“This leads me to the contention that simply messing around with books is one of the very best ways to pass time that there is. Not necessarily reading, but just ambling about the house nonchalantly moving an armful of books from one place to another or creating a mountain of open volumes that's then abandoned because an entire other mountain in another room looks more interesting.”
Julie Rugg, Buried in Books: A Reader's Anthology
