Meet Our Honoree
We are honoring reader extraordinaire, Tracala Hibbler. Here are fun facts about Tracala.
We know you love to read but what else do you do for fun?
In addition to reading, I enjoy listening to True Crime Podcasts.
Where is your favorite place to read?
I really don’t have a favorite place and enjoy reading any and everywhere. If I had to choose one place it would be in my family room tucked away in a corner on the sofa.
What is your favorite snack while reading?
My favorite snack while reading is chocolate covered almonds.
Do you like coffee or tea?
Chocolate or candy?
Beach or mountain?
What is your favorite scripture and why?
My favorite scripture is Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.”
What got you into reading in the first place?
There is not one certain thing that I can remember that got me into reading. Ever since I can remember, I have always been an avid reader.
What is your favorite genre and why?
Christian Fiction, although it is fiction, I find that there is always a lesson I can learn or something I can apply to my life.
How do you decide whether or not to buy a book?
I decide whether or not to buy a book based on the description of what the book is about, if I find it interesting, I’ll purchase it.
How important are book covers and back cover description in your purchasing decision?
The book covers are not as important to me but the back cover description aids in my purchasing decision.
Do you like book teasers? Why or why not?
I love book teasers as this draws me in and increases my interest in reading and finishing a book.
Do you write book reviews? Why or why not?
Yes, it provides the author feedback, and it also provides other readers a glimpse into the book and allows them to determine whether or not they want to read the book.
Tracala Hibbler was born and raised in Crawford, Mississippi but now currently resides in the state of Georgia. She has been obsessed with reading ever since she was a toddler and strives to do so every chance she gets. One of her favorite things to do to relieve stress after a hard day at work is to read as it takes her into another world. Reading allows her to forget about the stresses of life if only for a short period of time. Each year she sets a reading goal and always exceeds the goal set for herself.
Christian Fiction is one of her favorite genres of literature to read but she also enjoys a good mystery or thriller. Here is a list of some of her favorite authors, Ann Marie Bryan, Alex Cross, Rhonda McKnight, Taretha Jones, Danyelle Scroggins, Aundrya Schnel, Brenda Barrett, Kimberly Rae, and Kim Cash Tate. When she is not reading, she enjoys spending time with family and friends or watching her favorite football team the Dallas Cowboys play Sunday night football. Her favorite Scriptures are Proverbs 3:5-7, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him, and
he shall direct your paths.”
