Literary Junkies

Literary Junkies

1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it.

I'm reading Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis.  It's one of those books I've wanted to read for a long time but just never did, but right now as I go through a period of Spiritual questioning it's been good to pick up and go through it.  It deals with some of the questions I have in a very non-dismissive way. 

2. Have you ever read a book that made you want to immediately travel to that destination?

Yes, but unfortunately the book, and the location it featured, was a fantasy (grin).  

3. What is your ideal reading spot? (Ex. Reading nook in a library, in bed, in a hammock on the beach, etc).

Tucked under the covers in bed.

4. If you wrote a memoir, what would the title be?

I have thought many times about writing about growing up living on a boat.  It most likely would be a children's book, not a memoir, but if it was a book for adults, I think maybe I would title it "Leaning over the Water" ...or if I was going for a more humorous maybe "Watch Your Wake" or "In the Drink."  

5. One of our great literary giants has recently passed, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee. Did you read the book? Thoughts/opinions. What about Go Set a Watchman?

I read To Kill a Mockingbird in 10th grade and it really did stick with me.  It was both moving and enjoyable to read, and hopefullo.  I never read Go Set a Watchman...but it's now on my "to read" list.


  1. IA, to Kill a Mockingbird definitely stuck with me years after I read it.

  2. Ohhh I love your book titles for a faux-memoir! Hope to see you back tomorrow for another Literary Junkies link party!
