I enjoyed your interview. We only had 3 channels growing up as well and the TV was only on when my parents wanted to watch something. If my sister and I turned it on, our mother would turn it off and shoo us outside.
I enjoyed reading your answers so much that I mentioned you in today's post and answered the questions myself:http://bonniesbooks.blogspot.com/2011/05/reading-roots.html
I loved your description of Mr. Bounderby--I found him actually a bit interesting insofar as sort of seeing the error of his ways by the end of the book.I found Mr. Sleary's dialogue completely unreadable. The lisp was worse than dialect when it comes to reading what was for me a dreary book.
