Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you’d like to visit. This one’s hard for me because most of the books I can think of are either set in a relatively nondescript US location or in a fantasy world.  But I recently re-read Heidi with my daughter.  It’s set in the Swiss Alps, and while I’ve been to the Alps once before (in Austria), I… Read more »

Tell us about one of your hobbies that is NOT reading. Okay, I have to confess that I have very few hobbies lately besides reading.  I used to do a lot of digital scrapbooking and I used to watch a lot of TV.  Now, I pretty much just read.  I do homeschool my kids, but that’s not a hobby, of course – although, I do really enjoy teaching… Read more »

Hmmm … I’ve definitely read some books I wasn’t crazy about, but there’s usually other people who really enjoyed those same books, so it’s hard to say that people shouldn’t read it.  In fact, the book that came to mind was an NA book that I really did not like at all, and yet,… Read more »

Did you get interested in a new genre? Do you read more? Less? Why do you think your habits changed, if they did. My reading habits have definitely changed in the past few years.  I was a voracious reader as a kid and all through high school, but then stopped reading for the most part in college… Read more »

This question should really be, “What was the last book that didn’t make you cry?”  Because really, I’m a cry-baby.  I at least tear-up at 99% of the books I read. I mean, if it’s remotely sad, I cry.  Right now I’m reading That One Summer by C.J. Duggan – I’m about a third of the way through and I’ve already teared-up –… Read more »
