My blogger friend Ani over at Coffee Pot People tagged me with four fun questions:

1. You're at a bookstore. What section has sucked you in?
You've got to be kidding?!  I have to choose?!  I LOVE  BOOKS!  Books take you away on adventures to foreign lands, other times, expose you to new ideas, people, oh, and things to make.  I get sucked into the crafts section most often.

This book, Luxury One-Skein Wonders, is special because inside is a starfish pattern by the son of a friend.  Is that not cool?!  (See his website HERE.

2. What is your favorite holiday?
That would be Thanksgiving, a holiday that both my children love.  It's all about family-- family and  food and fun.  Last Thanksgiving we ate, ate some more, wandered downtown (Cincinnati) taking photos, played with our kitties, played games till all hours, talked, laughed.  Here's a post from last year. 

3. If you could live in (or at least visit) any era, which would it be?
When I was younger, I used to think it would be fun to live in pioneer times.  Reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, the lifestyle seemed so romantic.  Such fun enterprises the family was involved in--such as making maple syrup!  I loved learning about their everyday lives which always seemed exciting. 
See a review of Little House in the Big Woods (first in series of 9) HERE.
Ah, but one day reality hit and I actually realized how difficult that life must have been.  I can say that I am now content to live in this place and time.

 4. What is your favorite literary genre?
The simple answer is, I don't have one.  I read a variety of books of all genres.  It is difficult for me to actually read more than one book a month--my book club book.  But I can listen to so many more throughout the month.  Tonight, my book club will be discussing The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  I loved this book!  (an exception:  I can read a ton of craft books any time.)

I've enjoyed reading the answers to questions posed in this tagging game.
It's fun to get to know my bloggy friends a little more.

So without further ado, here's my list of questions:
1.  Do you like to travel?  If so, where do you most like to go or what was your most memorable trip?  If you don't like travel, why not?
2.  What is one of your most favorite books you've ever read?
3.  What is a favorite family food you like to make?
4.  What do you collect? 

And now I tag the following who I do hope will answer!
Jackie of A Keeper's Jackpot
Sandra of  Joey and Aleethea
Pam of Magdalene's Jewels HERE and HERE.  Pam's answers
Joy of The Art of Joy

Now go have fun!


  1. I so agree with you about the Laura Ingalls Wilder books! I used to think it'd be so fun to live in that time but I'm quite content with modern conveniences that I'd never make it.

  2. I love these little tags - we always learn that little something extra about each other! OK so here I go with your questions!

  3. Ok, I will have to put my thinking cap on and get back to you with answers to these great questions!


  4. Interesting meme!

    We're up for Wordless Wednesday:Target Is Relaxed


  5. I'm enjoying these little tidbits, too! Fun to know you better =)

  6. I really enjoyed reading your comments. Another reader, eh? Your book club book sounds interesting. It would be fun for us to start a book club here, but I don't know if I'd have the time to be in two book clubs!! {:-D

  7. I don't think I could pick out just one genre...although I am on a kick lately.
    And as for pioneer times - I had the same fantasies after reading Laura...and the same realization with age :P


Your comments make my day! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts!
