1. Last book you bought: Despite the fact that I didn't intend to go to the bookstore, last weekend I still managed to come home with Literary Hoaxes and This Book is Overdue. And I've already read This Book is Overdue...it was quite fun.
2. Last book you got in the mail: Kelly's Traveling Show, by , which I will be reading for a TLC tour in April.
3. The first book you read over and over: Maybe The Witch of Blackbird Pond? Or ? I don't really remember.
4. Children’s book every child should read: I don't think I can answer this...I have a lousy memory, and I don't have any kids, so I'm a little out of the kid lit loop.
5. Favorite place to read: In my big comfy chair in our living room. Preferably with the sound of rain beating against the window behind me.
6. A book you bought just for the cover: The Age of Orphans. And lots more. I'm a sucker for a good cover.
7. Scariest book ever read: The scariest book I ever tried to read was The Enchantress of Florence. Seriously...have you seen the length of Rushdie's sentences??
8. Most romantic book ever read: Most recently, I'd say Star Gazing, because of the way Keir described the world to the blind Marianne.
9. Book that changed your life in some way: Game On Diet, which inspired the snack cake challenge (a group of book bloggers who taunted each other through a round of the Game On Challenge), thereby getting me to start eating healthier and walking daily.
10. Book you’ve re-read the most times: I'm not a re-reader...there are too many new (to me) books out there!
11. Book you needed the Cliff’s Notes for: Lolita
12. Book you needed the dictionary for: Again, Lolita.
13. Book you like that no one else seems to: The Roaches Have No King. Not that people don't like it...more like no one has ever heard of it.
14. Book you don’t like that everyone else seems to love: Fool. Or . Oh...and !
15.Number of books you own (you can guess): Hmmm, more than 200. But less than 400. I'd go count, but I'd rather read. :-D
16. Number of books on your TBR list (that you have not acquired yet): None...as I have no self-control.
17. Must-have reading accessories: My glasses, unfortunately. And a bottle of water.
18. Literary Destination You Want to Go to: London. Always London.
19. Top Three Favorite Authors: I'm sorry, but that's just impossible. I love them all (I may not love their books, but I love the fact that they write them).From Becca: Jill, we have to talk. Two of my favorite books are books you don't like? How can this be? But you would not be the first person to tell me The Poisonwood Bible was not a favorite. I think it is a love it or hate it book. But P&P? I haven't heard that one before, although logically I knew it had to exist. Since you rock in so many other ways, I won't fault you on it. ;) I like your answer to 19. Great response. I had not thought of it that way before. At least they are out there and writing books! (Which is more than I can say for myself, the idea generator with no follow-through type that I so clearly am.) Finally, I would like to say that I don't know why I haven't heard (or remember hearing) of Star Gazing, but now I want to read it!
