Fill in the Blank Sunday: Literature.

I missed Lauren's Fill in the Blank Friday, but because it was about books, I'm doing it on Sunday. I love books. And I love Lauren's answers. I pluralized some of her questions so I could do lists and lists of books....

1. My favorite bookS growing up were "Little House on the Prairie" series, all of them, of which I read them over and over again. I also adored Ramona Quimby, and was very excited to find out that I live near Klickitat Street! It's over here in NE and it is my goal to have a Klickitat address one day...

2. The funniest bookS I've ever read were Anything by Sophie Kinsella. The girl has got a gift. Evelyn Waugh may be one of the best authors of satire, and Bill Bryson is funny in the non-fiction way. I just started reading Nick Hornby so we'll see if he's as funny as I think.

3. The one book that has truly changed my life is "Nourishing Traditions", by Sally Fallon. It's a cookbook, but it is so much more than that. It actually all started with Jordan Rubin's book, "Patient, Heal Thyself" and it took off from there. I'm a nourishing foods junkie. NO diets. Kill the "Skinny Bitch"!!! (the book).

4. If you're looking for a real "tear jerker" you should probably read I remember crying in "Where the Red Fern Grows" during class in elementary school, everybody laughed!

5. If I could meet any author living or dead I would want to meet See diagram below :) This table needs more work. I tried to place them in un-like company so we could have good conversation, but I'm not sure I did it in the best way. This is a major time waster.

6. The next book on my "to read" list is The rest of Barbara Kingsolver's books. I have "The Bean Trees" in my bag right now. I get them all from the library. My "To Read" list is about 5 pages long, and getting longer.

7. If I was snowed into remote cabin in the woods and could only choose three books to bring with me I'd bring I would bring these condensed into ONE book each, so they count as three. Lord of the Rings, The complete works of Jane Austen, and complete works of William Shakespeare for reading aloud when I'm lonely OR the complete works of C.S. Lewis for some brain exercise.

Oh man, I could go on. And on. And send me book recs if you have any that you love and I'll add them to my list!

I loved the Little House books too! Actually, those are the books I learned to ready by! I'm indebted to that series and my mom for using them to teach me!

My mom gave me the whole Little House set in full-color hardback two Christmas' ago. Sometimes I just stare at the covers. We have the best moms ever!
