I hope everyone has had a lovely week. I have had a great visit in Vancouver, WA at EPICon 2013. I have learned good info for my publishing company and picked up a new supply of bookmarks to share as well as a few new books to review and share!
Thank you to all who shared last week.
We had some really nice ideas for libraries. The three biggest criteria were lots of shelves, comfy seating and good lighting. Several liked staircases or rolling stairs and a few liked fireplaces. Texas Book Lover would want accessible and rotating (forward and back) shelves which sounds good. I love nrlymrtl's suggestion of a revolving book door always bringing in new books to replace old! Congrat's to Carol NW who has a library room - maybe you could share pictures. :-)
Some of you named favorite pet birds and others outside birds. Cardinals, cockatiels and hummingbirds got three votes each; owls and seagulls got two each. Then there were a variety of wonderful choices. I figured at least a few of you might have birds as pets. We used to have many zebra and society finches as well as a couple of lovebirds. One of our son's favorite was a talking green parrot.

WEEK #91 Questions
Q1. Carol L says: I love Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series. I realize these books start with a young Jamie and up to middle aged so far so I'd ask with him being in his 30's & early 40's. Who would you choose to play the role of Jamie Fraser in a movie??
A: I have to admit that I have put off using this question as I can't answer it because I don't pay much attention to actors. I'll be interested in everyone else's answer as I don't have a clue! ... although - maybe the guy who plays Castle - Nathan Fillion?

Q2. My non-bookish Question this week: What is your favorite flower??
A: Well, who doesn't love a beautiful rose? But that is not my favorite. Of outdoor flowers I pick Daffodils BUT for most favorite and an indoor choice I go with African Violets.
Besides- this is a great shot with variety.
