#friyayintro @howjessreads Thanks for the shout out! Can‘t wait to see people‘s answers, but may not be able to respond to everything. We‘re traveling!

1. Little House on the Prairie—I wanted Michael Landon to be my dad.
2. Ireland!
3. a) From the lists I make to plan reading challenges or b) scrolling my Kindle, Audible or bookshelves
4. Barbara Kingsolver
5. Favorite magazine and why?

Jerdencon Travel and Leisure - self explanatory! 😉 3mo
Addison_Reads Favorite magazine would be National Geographic. It satisfies my inner science geek and I love the photography. 3mo

wanderinglynn Right now I‘m enjoying Seattle Magazine because I‘m new to the area and it has all the best things to do/see, places to eat or explore. 3mo
Leftcoastzen The Nation :totally unrelenting when it calls out the badness in regards to American social ills and politics.see also the 2 runner ups :The Progressive and In These Times. (edited) 3mo
paulfrankspencer The New Yorker. Good to get a liberal perspective and good writing overall. A joy to read. 3mo
xxjenadanxx I love Southern Living, as a fancy myself a Southern Belle, and Archaeology, because it‘s fascinating and educational and growing up I wanted to be an archaeologist. And Elvis. 3mo
Megabooks The Week because it‘s brief and balanced. 3mo

1. I guess the 90s? But could I be an adult this time and not a teen? Would I survive adulthood without modern technology? 🤔
2. Hardcover. I don't know why really.
3. Well older now because i'm turning 37 today.
4. No, more like 600+.

1.) gluten free pecan pie! 😛
2.) both are fine with me, though I prefer a corner brownie regardless
3.) I don‘t think so, but it‘s possible I just don‘t remember. Not in the last decade or more.
4.) I don‘t own a car. On the rare occasions I rent a Zipcar I listen to TheClassicalStation.org

Can't wait to start reading this to my youngest this evening! You could say that the plot really started to thicken in the previous book. My daughter, not content with just a couple of chapters every evening, has long since finished the series. Bedtime has become an elastic concept lately as my son and I agree that "we can't stop there!" ?
