Has there ever been a time in your life when you fell out of love with reading?
I wouldn’t say that I’ve ever fallen out of love with reading, but I am ashamed to admit that there have been a few times in my life where I went on an extended reading hiatus. While in college, I took 20+ credit hour quarters and juggled the demands of a baby, so reading had to fall on the back burner. Also, the year of 2015 was not a good year for me. I was very sporatic in my reading…. I came back stronger and am determined to make reading my bitch in 2016 🙂
How easily do you part with your books? Are you a sharer or a hoarder?
I am a self proclaimed book hoarder all the way! I aspire to one day have my own library in my home. I USED lend books to friends and family, but I’ve been burned one too many times… They probably think I’ve forgotten about my books, but I will never forget! My poor copies of The Forgotten Garden and Jane Eyre… Mommy misses you!
What was the last book that moved you to tears?
I’m not sure why, but The Shadow of the Wind made me cry. It was tears of happiness.
Do you have a talent that may come as a surprise to people?
I can walk on stilts… my Dad made my brothers and I some out of wood beams when we were young and I was the only one who could do it. We actually found them in the garage last year, and I was pleasantly surprised I could still do it at my ripe old age 🙂
If you could choose only one book to pass on to the next generation what would it be and why?
One book? I have to choose one book? That’s like asking me to choose a favorite child between my kids!
What’s the perfect edible accompaniment to a good book?
If I could have my way, I would enjoy a large bag of Trail Mix while reading a good book. You have sweet and salty all in one bag. I like variety. Unfortunately, I cannot control myself while eating Trail Mix, so I am forbidden from buying any. Mmmmmmm
