readers'/writers' meme


This was created by BJ Hoff and I copied it from Robin Lee Hatcher's blog.


1. What's the one book or writing project you haven't yet written but still hope to?


Ha ha! Well, that would be my first ever book. Sure would like to get that written.



2. If you had one entire day in which to do nothing but read, what book would you start with?

I have a stack of books to read. I would probably just start with the next on the stack. Magdeline by Angela Hunt, I think is next.



3. What was your first writing "instrument" (besides pen and paper)?

I suppose a crayon was probably my very first :)

Just our PC. I now have my own laptop which is much nicer.


4. What's your best guess as to how many books you read in a month?

Probably four to five. Sometimes I have three or four going at the same time.


5. What's your favorite writing "machine" you've ever owned?

This Acer laptop is the only one that has been "all mine".


6. Think historical fiction: what's your favorite time period in which to read? (And if you don't read historical fiction--shame on you.)

I love them all. WWII (Europe and US) is probably my favorite. But I have read from the time of the Patriarchs, Medieval, Regency, Victorian, Pioneer, Depression and everything in between.


7. What's the one book you remember most clearly from your youth (childhood or teens)?

From my wee youth I loved a book called Never Tease a Weasel.

From my early teens I remember A Man Without a Face. I didn't even catch the homosexual part back then.

From my later teens, The Hiding Place.

But this is a hard answer because I have been a voracious reader since I was five or so.
I'm not tagging anyone. Just feel free to answer these if you want!
