We have traveled through seven states this week (Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania) and have arrived safely at Maryland where we will be visiting our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. The weather has been very nice so far with the lowest temperature being 41F.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
We did not make the detour to Punxsutawney, PA and as scottsgal pointed out that is not where Groundhog Day was filmed anyway!
None of us have specifically traveled to a place because we have read about it in a book. Two would like to visit the Highlands (thanks to Historical Romances), several would like to visit England (thanks to Regencies) and another group would like to visit New Orleans. I am like Di and Elizabeth because we have been more aware of places when we do visit cities we have read about.

WEEK #174 (One Question.)
Q1. This week Becky asks: 1. When reading a book can you predict how the story will end?and if so Were your predictions correct??
A: I certainly try to predict or guess endings. I would say that I am only correct half the time. That is good because there is almost always fun being surprised either at the ending or how the story got there. :-)

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 still have a supply of questions but from the same people so hopefully others will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use.
October Question Contributors: Nikki, Elizabeth, Miki and Becky. Random.org chose #1: NIKKI
