Taken from Eva.

One book you're currently reading: Farewell Navigator by Leni Zumas

One book that changed you life: What's Eating Gilbert Grape? by Peter Hedges. An honest portrayal of what depression looks like.

One book that you'll want on a deserted island: I'm going to have to think about this for a while

One book you've read more than once: East of Eden by John Steinbeck

One book you've never been able to finish: The World According to Garp by John Irving

One book that made you laugh: God Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips

One book that made you cry: The Geography of Love by Glenda Burgess. I have never cried so hard because of a book ever in my life.

One book you keep rereading: any book from the Harry Potter series

One book you've been meaning to read: A Language Older than Words by Derrick Jensen

One book you believe everyone should read: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the fifth sentence.

from Tales of Burning Love by Louise Erdrich

Ooh, how are you liking the Leni Zumas book? I read that last year and was quite impressed. Not all the stories were great but there were a couple I really liked.

I love Harry Potter too and can't wait for the next movie. I so wish the series hadn't ended.

Page 247: No problem!

Iliana: The book is great! Some of the stories are very impressive and stay with you after reading them.

Bree: Harry Potter is a book I can not pick up unless I have hours to devote to reading it. I get lost in that series every time I read it!
