Feature & Follow Friday.................


Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school? 

 

A:  Since I graduated from college with an English lit degree I read tons of books.  Picking just one is difficult, but one of my faves was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  It has withstood the test of time and many authors use her basic premise for their stories.

  3. Pride and Prejudice is a great choice! I read that in high school and really enjoyed it. We also watched the movie in class (the new one) and it was AWESOME! It's still one of my all time favourite movies!

  8. Never read that one. I was an English major too, but for some reason didn't really like the classics as much! I am just too weird for my own good I suppose!

    I could not get into the classics, but I also do not like gushy romances either, if there is not paranormal, danger, excitement like that, I get bored. Glad you liked it, I was just glad I was not required to read some of those classic romance books, I would have hated it.
