From a friend's blog: questions about reading

This comes from questions from this blog: http://memeexpress.blogspot.com/2008/07/best-books.html
I need to turn that into a link you can click but it is worth copying and pasting to get there.

The questions and answers:

What are you reading this summer?
Everything and anything -when I am not writing. I read often from online sources but did just start a book called The Historian, for the 2nd time, about vampires. I am a magazine addict and admit that. I have no hope of recovery. I also spend a great deal of time reading articles on Associated Content.

Recent books read include: books by Dennis Lehane, one by Timothy Sexton of AC fame (review to come up soon, I hope) and more. I am reading books about the economy as well as Six Good Innings (an advance review copy, nonfiction, about baseball and life).

What is the best book you have ever read? How many times have you read it?

I can't pick a favorite. It depends on my mood and needs and I do believe the right book comes along at the right time.

What was your favorite book as a child? Why?

So many! I liked The Red Pony, The Yearling, Lassie Come Home and many nature books, including A Squirrel in the Family. Also, To Kill A Mockingbird. These are just the tip of the iceberg. Lots of horse books, too!

If you could write your own book, what would you call it? I don't have a title yet.

What would it be about? I'm not sure but I would hope it would have heart and integrity and an unique style.

Hi! I'm new to blogging and gotta find out more about memes!!

I enjoyed your post. I've heard it said many times that books that you read as a child make more of an imprint on your character than any other time of your life.

Oh my goodness - much too much to ponder at the moment. However, I will say that I am reading Suzi Moore McGregor's book, Living Homes: Sustainable Architecture and Design.
