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: What book do you think everyone should read? If you could gift the entire population with one book?


A:  Wow, that's a great question!  There are a lot of books I love for various reasons that I could recommend.  If I have to choose just one, I choose The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  It shows in a dramatic and gutwrenching way how little value people place on a life, especially in this skewed view of reality TV.  The class distinctions are also eye-opening.  This is YA not for the faint of heart that opens doors for intriguing discussions.

  8. You know, I've never read The Hunger Games. I have a hard time with dystopian novels. If I were to read any though, Hunger Games would be the first one :)
