Here are Stephanie’s amazing questions and my awesome answers!!! 🙂
1.) What movie adaptation of a book do you like the most and why?
Answer: I don’t really watch many current movies, I watch the classics. I am looking forward to “Murder On the Orient Express,” which we should be seeing at the theaters in November. And! I’m also looking forward to “The Mountain Between Us.” I think that will be in the theaters in October. So, after all that I’m going to select a classic movie. Rebecca!!! It’s a Hitchcock movie, of course, and although it’s not perfect, he did do an admirable job of remaining faithful to the book.
2.) What is the top thing on your bucket list?
Answer: I would love to go to Alaska for a month! The wilderness! The adventure! Amazing!
3.) Who is your favorite author and why?
Answer: C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Mary Stewart, Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sibella Giorello, Linda Hall. I enjoy the Brontes. Goodness. Did I forget anyone??? And you ask Why??? The mystery/suspense authors give me something to think about and process through. I love taking notes, trying to solve the mystery. I should create a large map like Maisie Dobbs does when she’s investigating!!! I love creeping through a dark house with only a candle to light my way. I like stormy nights and someone coming up behind you and putting their hand over your mouth. Good stuff!!! C.S. Lewis wrote, “The Chronicles of Narnia.” I love the adventure and the fantasy. I love stepping through the wardrobe and sailing on the Dawn Treader!!! George MacDonald has it all ~ mystery, romance, creepy and there’s plenty to think about and process through.
4.) If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with your extra time?
That’s a good question and I’ve never been asked that question before. I don’t think I’d read because I read plenty of books during the daytime. I might get a telescope and gaze at the stars and the planets.
5.) What was your first blog post about? Make sure to add the link!
I think I just introduced myself and rattled *ahem* on about what my blog was going to be about. Oh please don’t ask me to add the link. I am so link challenged. 🙂
6.) What book have you read the most (that you can think of) or book that makes you the happiest to read?
Without a doubt, The Bible.
7.) Is there anything you would like to change about your blog? If so, what?
Yes. I would like to be more creative and have activities and giveaways. I have some difficulty thinking of creative activities to do.
