Journal Jar - Books

Q:  What is your favorite book? Tell about your favorite books as a child, teen and adult.

A:  When I was a little girl, my favorite book was Charlotte's Web because I knew Wendy liked it.  So I decided I liked it, too.  As a pre-teen, I loved Goosebumps and the Babysitter Teen Whatever books.  I can't remember its name.  As an adult, I loved The Work and the Glory series, and I love just about everything else I read.  If I don't love then I stop reading it.

Q:  What is your favorite movie, book, poem and song?

A:  My favorite movie is Pride & Prejudice with a close runner-up of Nacho Libre.  My favorite book .... I'm not sure how you could compare books and choose a favorite.  They all mean different things at different times.  Especially if you love the characters in more than one book.  You can't choose one of them over another :)

Q:  What do books mean to you?

A:  Books mean that real life and chaos can take a break.  If you're running around too crazy to have any time to read, then you don't

Q:  Describe the role of reading in your life.

A:  There's always things to read ... books, magazines, the news, blogs, things to research (like how to help Abbi with her homework).  Reading isn't a hobby, it's how you put information in your brain so you're up to date, learning, and enjoying life.

Q:  When was the first time you realized that you could read?

A:  I can't remember.  It must have been some time in Kindergarten.

Q:  Do you have a favorite author? Who? Why?

A:  I love the books by the twelve apostles.  They give life to the principles I'm trying to learn and work on.  I have favorite fictional authors but nothing I religiously seek out.
