A to Z Bookish Survey

This is a meme hosted by Perpetualpageturner found here.  I thought it looked fun and wanted to participate.  Here are my entries:

Author you’ve read the most books from:

M.C. Beaton aka Marion Chesney must be it for most books from a single author.


Best Sequel Ever:

Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

Currently Reading:

Killer in Crinoline by Duffy Brown


Drink of Choice While Reading:

Tea – I have blend I make from Teavana:  2 ounces Dragonwell Green & 2 ounces Monkey Picked Oolong & 4 ounces of English Breakfast.  Love it.  I also drink lots of Williamson Teas – their English Breakfast & their Afternoon teas are both excellent!

E-reader or Physical Book?

I borrow a lot from the library so I will have to say Physical book.  I do have a Kindle and a Nook that I like for travel.


Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Sorry – high school is just a dim blur in the recesses of my mind.  Today I would date Hamish Macbeth in a heartbeat!

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami

Hidden Gem Book:

True Grit by Charles Portis…. A western, who knew?


Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Discovering the on-line community of book bloggers/readers.  I don’t know many readers in real life; it is awesome to connect with others who love to read.


Just Finished:

Agatha Raisin and the Fairies of Fryfam by M.C. Beaton


Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

I am not really into Urban Fantasy or most YA (not really my demographic for more years than I have fingers and toes)


Longest Book You’ve Read:

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens – I think or maybe it was Under the Dome by Stephen King


Major book hangover because of:

Probably one of Rowan Coleman’s books or Elizabeth Buchan

5 – 2 are tall and 3 are short + piles in my bedroom


One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame


Preferred Place To Read:

In bed! (a close second is the recliner in my living room)


Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” 
― Julia Child

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.” 
— A.A. Milne

Reading Regret:

I regret not marrying someone who loved to read or at least valued the written word!
