Author You’ve Read The Most Books From
Anne Lamott. I read her entire body of work in my early 20s. She has written a few more since then that I need to check out. My favorites are: Hard Laughter and Operating Instructions. (The latter is about her experience becoming a single mom when she had a baby in her mid-thirties).
Best Sequel Ever
I wish there was a sequel to When Heaven Calls. Courtney Stackhouse is my favorite writer in the whole world and she also blogs here: thatswu.wordpress.com
Nothing at the moment. But Giving Myself Away, Montessori From the Start, Understanding White Privilege, and Growing Tasty Tropical Plants Indoors are all up next.
Drink of Choice While Reading
E-reader or physical book?
Physical book. I don’t know if it is the smell of book or the feel or just the stubborn habit.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School
I did not date in High School? I did not go to High School? I plead the fifth? I really don’t want to answer this one!!!!
Glad You Gave This Book a Chance
Having Faith by Sandra Steingraber. This book inspired me (a high-school drop-out) to go to college and become an environmental toxicologist. It’s so good! I would recommend it to anyone but especially those planning to have a baby or with small children.
Hidden Gem Book
One Straw Revolution. Everyone who I have recommended this to has loved it. It is about farming – but soooo much more than that, too.
Important Moment in Your Reading Life
When my Kindergarten teacher didn’t believe I could read and then I read and she was so amazed.
Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness by Toure
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read
Right-wing rhetoric. Left-wing rhetoric. Most Sci-Fi.
Longest Book You’ve Read
In The Spirit of Crazy Horse. I think this should be required reading for Americans (just to scratch the surface).
Major Book Hangover Because of
The Sweet Edge. The ending! So good and so puzzling.
Number of Bookcases You Own
One. I used to have many shelves and books overflowing all over the house – including in the refrigerator and toolbox, etc, but I had to simplify at one point. It feels better for me now.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times
Girl’s Guide to Fishing and Hunting
Preferred Place to Read
Quote That Inspires You
(p.s. I don’t consider myself “pro-life” or “pro-birth” necessarily but I am definitely “pro- feeding, educating and housing all children.”)
None really. Maybe not reading more?
