11 Questions from Melanie
  1. What's the last book you bought? The last book that I bought for myself is 'Love Makes a House a Home: A Christian Romance' (Series: Home to Collingsworth Book 3) by Kimberly Rae Jordan. But this week I bought some books to give to a friend but I can't tell you which books because she might read this. :-)
  2. What's the last movie you watched? A lousy on so many levels, 1994 movie called 'It Could Happen to You' staring Nicolas Cage. It had promises of being cute until his character had an affair. 
  3. What's your all-time favorite book cover? Hard question. I do love the covers for the Tales of Goldstone Wood series.
  4. What's your favorite summer activity, besides reading? ;) Seeing friends and family that I don't get to see all year.
  5. What is one of the worst/most-boring movies you've seen? I don't have a good memory for all the movies I've seen (when answering #2 it took me a while to decide if my sister and I had watched a movie yesterday or only watched TV shows on Netflix). And I have an even worse memory for bad/boring movies. So...I'll skip this one.
  6. If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would you choose? Hawaii - they've got lots of national parks and cool places to explore.
  7. Sneakers or sandals? Sandals
  8. The beach or the pool? Beach
  9. What's the last book that made you cry or laugh-out-loud? I definitely cried during 'The Healer' by Dee Henderson.
  10. What's your favorite candle scent? It's been a while since I went candle-sniffing. (Btw, ever sniffed men's deodorant at Walmart at 11pm with a group of girls? Very fun and hilarious.) 
  11. Do you have a favorite B&W movie? Hmmm, favorite B&W TV show is Robin Hood staring Richard Greene. And Andy Griffith. Movie though... Longest Day is good, so are the Abbott & Costello comedies, The Artist... yeah I don't have a favorite. There are lots of other great classics though - too many to list.
