Thank you to all those who commented last week.
There were a lot of different choices of authors to be stranded with. There were three authors who were chosen twice: Veronica Roth (real dystopian author), Neil Gaiman (real children's author) and Richard Castle (fictional author). :-)
The broken bones experience was very split: 8 of us had no broken bones and 9 did have broken bones. Three people had broken toes...yes Sarah, those count!
The Winner from SBB #43 comments is: #12 bn100. There are still 8 'love' books to pick from and 2 Christmas choices. bn100 please let me know if you want a GC (if you are international) or choose a book from the remaining Love Books List for Giveaway, remaining Christmas Giveaway Books, OR pick from the ARC box and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.
Q1. This week Abby asks: What is your earliest childhood memory of and how old were you??
A: I am very nearsighted and they didn't find out until I was 6. So there was apparently a lot I didn't see at a young age. But when I was 5 we visited Nova Scotia and I remember looking over a small bridge and seeing star fish magnified in the water. On the same trip we picked spiny burrs and stuck them together to make baskets.
Q2. My question this week is a book Q to go along with Q1. I thought it had been asked before but I don't see it on our list - sorry if it is a repeat: What is the earliest book you can remember??
A: I started reading very early, even under the covers with a flashlight, but the book I always remember reading on my own is Smoky the Cowhorse.

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I will draw from the suggestions I used the month before and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions but some of you others might want to get in a question or two as we have a few people submitting most of the questions so far. Either way - it works for me. :-) The question list is being replenished! Thanks for sending in questions!
Your turn to share:
1. What is your earliest childhood memory of and how old were you???
2. My question is: Have you ever had a broken bone??
