1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it!


All I know is the Ernest Hemingway was a writer, however I have never read anything of his.  I love historical fiction and found this book in my box that I got so I figured it must be good.  I'm only about 2  chapters in so I don't have much of an opinion on it yet.



2. What is one book you think every person should read at least once in their life? Why?

 Probably The Bible.  I haven't read it myself but I love doing bible studies and learning what this immortal book has to offer.

3. Do you think you could ever write a book? If so what genre would it be?

I'd love to write a book!  I've started a few times but it always petered out.  I've had ideas about writing about motherhood or a sci fi/fantasy love story.

4. Do you listen to audiobooks?  Do you look for the same things in an audiobook that you do in one you'll read?

Every now and then, I used to listen but it was because we were on a long road trip and someone had handed down the book to me or I used to work in sales and was in my car alot so audiobooks were a change from music.

5. Can you suggest a book of each type for others to try:

Fantasy -   Being a Green Mother by Piers Anthony
Nonfiction - The Beatles (I don't remember the author though)
Fiction -  Historical Fictions by Phillipa Gregory or Michelle Moran
Romance - Charleston or On Leaving Charleston by Alexandra Ripley
Classics - Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
Young Adult -  Twilight series or Harry Potter series

  3. Dropping by from the link=up. Thanks for your comment on my blog :] If you end up picking up any of the books I recommended, let me know how you liked them.
    I had a roommate who enjoyed Phillipa Gregory--I had been hesitant to read her because they looked heavily romantic (which isn't my cup of tea), but that doesn't mean they're not worth the read. I just might have to look into her, now :]
    Have an awesome week!

  4. Love love love Phillipa Gregory books!! I'm sad to say that I have yet to read anything with Jane Austen listed as the author. I've seen plenty of films but never picked up a book. I've ready plenty that used her as their subject matter, but again nothing by her.
