I changed several of the questions and thought it'd be fun to see what you think about BOOKS & READING.  

In the comments, please share at least one of your answers to the above...or suggest a favorite book for my book club.  Thanks.


  1. The beach is also my preferred place to read a book. And also my preferred place for so many other things too...

  2. I like to read, but I wish I LOVED to read...I like technology way too much. Maybe that will change one day. With that being said, I prefer a physical book over an e-book for sure.

  3. Fun abc questionnaire! I just read Good Night Moon to Aubree & Mike at Christmas time. He hadn't heard of it.

    1. Mike probably doesn't have little ones to read to. You'll need to give Aubree & Mike a copy so they can have fun reading it to a special little one.
