11 Facts About Me

 11 Questions from The Bookmark Addict

  1. What movie do you actually like better than the book?
    I’d have to say Divergent.  I saw the movie before I read the book and it held my attention more than the book.
  2. Do you read blogs other than book blogs? What are some of your favorites?
    The majority of the blogs I read are book related, but I do venture outside the box.  La Joie de Vivre, I Love Geekology 101 & Funk’s House of Geekery are a few of my favorites.
  3. What is your favorite book genre?
    I’d have to say Fantasy.  I’m lumping Vampires, Shifters and Ghosts under this heading.
  4. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what book would it be?
    I could never pick just one book, but if I had to pick a series, it would be Harry Potter.
  5. What is your favorite quote?
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
    -Robert Frost
  6. Do you enjoy reading classics? 
    I do now.  I hated them as a kid.  Getting me to read my required reading up through high school was quite a chore.  After I got into college, I was a lot better about it.  Now, I don’t mind them at all.  I think it is this rebellious streak I have; I like them as long as no one is making me read them.
  7. What was your favorite book that was required reading for school?
    Probably Hamlet.  I had a really cool English teacher that year and he took the class on a field trip to the theater to see Hamlet (the one with Mel Gibson).  That probably tells you how old I am.  I’ve always been a sucker for Shakespeare.
  8. Beside reading, what other hobbies do you have?
    I love crafts.  I make jewelry, I make wreaths, I do flower arrangements, I like interior decorating, and I scrapbook some.  I also love to garden.
  9. Where is your favorite reading spot?
    In the bed.  I could lay there all day and read.  In fact, I have!
  10. Do you watch any booktubers?
    I do not.  I just cannot get into videos.  I will look up a video if I need to know how to do something, but I don’t troll videos.
  11. Do you read magazines?
    I do.  I like Better Homes & Gardens, Travel & Leisure, and National Geographic.
