I'm flightly about this...favorites change depending on my mood. At this moment: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. This book gives me chills!
Who is a character from a book that you admire?
Anne from Jane Austen's Persuasion. She's a woman who learns her own mind in the end and doesn't cave in to pressure. I think we are all searching for a little strength in our lives. She gives me inspiration.
Do you prefer stand alone books or book series?
I don't have a preference either way, although I just finished a series by Richelle Mead and am sitting here having an anxiety attack because the final book isn't going to be released until next year!
What is your favorite zoo animal?
I love Beluga whales the most. There is a zoo in Washington that has an underground viewing room to see their Beluga's. They come right up to you and stare into your eyes. It's a surreal experience! I Penguins are almost tied, just because they crack me up with their antics. Oh, I cannot forget one that's really unusual to me: an Okapi. So hard to explain that one!
Where is one place you would like to travel to?
Top on my wishlist is to take a cruise in the Mediterranean that will allow me to go to Turkey & Egypt. Seeing the Pyramids is a must!
What is your favorite place to read at?
I like to read in bed for the most part. There's something relaxing about getting bundled under the covers and losing myself in a great story.
Do you prefer Borders or Barnes & Noble?
I only have a little Borders store where I live (which is still called Waldenbooks for some reason)...so going to Barnes & Noble is a big treat for me. I guess that makes B&N my favorite. I'll probably break down and buy one of their Nooks before the year is over. :-)
What is your favorite historical fiction book?
For all time: Not sure. For this year: Romancing Miss Bronte by Juliet Gael or The Last Queen by CW Gortner. Both books are phenomenal!
Do you dog ear or use a bookmark?
Bookmarks only!! Cannot even contemplate mutilating my books!!
What is your favorite color?
Green...like an emerald
What is a subject you do a lot about?
As in read a lot? I read a lot of historical romances. I always fall back on them when I'm not sure what to read next. I love Regency Romances.
[Sorry! I butchered this question.]
How many books are in your 'to be read' pile right now?
Oooh....I'm going to say, 50 or 60? I lose track and unfortunately don't have them catalogued anywhere. I just know it won't stop growing as long as I keep buying books!!
What is the last young adult book you read?
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. LOVED IT!!!
Stephen King or Nicholas Sparks?
I haven't read Sparks at all and the only King book I've read is The Stand. But, I guess I do like Sparks' movies better than Kings.
Okay, most importantly, snicker-doodle cookies or peanut butter cookies?
Yes, this is extremely important. lol Sugar Cookies still rule!!! I guess Snicker-doodles are close to that.
I want to go to Turkey and Egypt, too and emerald green is one of my favorite colors. And YUM! Sugar cookies are just awesome!
