Friday Five!

Friday 5, books, books, books....


I've just returned from a meeting in Cambridge so I'm posting this late here in the UK (it is 3:45pm).. because I took the opportunity of a free afternoon in Cambridge's wonderful book shops... I only bought a few- and they were on sale- very restrained for me!!!


So with my head full of books I've seen and a long wish list in my mind, I bring you a Friday Five on books!!!


1. Fiction what kind, detective novels, historical stuff, thrillers, romance???? Hmm it really depends on my mood.. I like historical stuff and romance


2. When you get a really good book do you read it all in one chunk or savour it slowly? I read all in one chunk especially in the summer


3. Is there a book you keep returning to and why? I normally don't reread books but i keep returning to Gifts from the Sea. I'm not really sure what my draw is to it, but it is amazing, a great book about life.


4. Apart from the Bible which non-fiction book has influenced you the most? Nelson Mandela's autobiography it was the first autobiography that I read


5. Describe a perfect place to read. ( could be anywhere!!!) In the summer in a Park... my favorite is congresspark

Kristin, have you read Julia Quinn's historical romances? She has a great sense of humor.

Teri said...

Quinn is the only romance writer I have read and not hated! witty dialogue all over the place!

Kristen said...

Oh yes. I said that I generally do not re-read books...BUT, Gifts from the Sea is one I have and do. What a wonderful book.
