Happy Saturday night. (I almost put up a post that this would be late as I wasn't feeling well earlier this eve. But now I feel better.) I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your Spring (or Fall) weather.
Thank you to all who shared last week.
Only one or two of you indicated little music listening like me. The rest have a wide variety of listening pleasures including classical, oldie goldies, country, rock, metal and more!
I was a little surprised that 10 out of 27 of us have not read The Twilight series. I was more surprised that seven of you have not read JK Rowling - no Harry Potter. Then there were other famous names there that were interesting. I love Mary P's statement, that was echoed by Holly and Emily - "I'd rather read great books rather than books by writers who are 'famous'."

WEEK #99 Questions
Q1. Elizabeth asks: What is your favorite vacation location?? (I thought this was good since many of us may be planning our summer vacations now.)
A: My favorite vacation has to be a cruise and I'm not real picky where as long as it is at least 5 days - but I prefer longer and not just an East Caribbean itinerary. I still think our Viking River Cruise was the Best! I loved the daily tours that were included. But I have really enjoyed our transatlantic cruises and the one in Alaska too.

Q2. My bookish Question this week: I started with the Q What is a book written the year of your birth. Then I realized that would be giving away our ages. So the modified Q is: A] Have you read any book written the year of your birth - share if you like. or B] Name an author you HAVE read that wrote in the decade surrounding your birth.
A: I choose to answer B]. Three authors wrote trilogies during the decade of my birth that I have read: Issac Asimov - The Foundation Series; C.S. Lewis - The Chronicles of Narnia; and J.R.R. Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings.

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 draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! We can always use fresh questions. I do have a group of questions from the same submitters so if you have a question don't be afraid to ask!
