I have been lucky enough to have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award by three of readers!!!  This makes me so happy, you don't even know!  And since I am so excited, I have decided to answer all three sets of post questions, then nominate my Liebster Blog Winners.  Thanks again Insomnia of Books, Andrea Hetsley Books, and xo'reads!!!

11 Facts About Me:

  1. I have a 1 year old Cocker Spaniel puppy named Sloopy (as in Hang on Sloopy).
  2. In case that seems weird, I can explain! I am an alumni of The Ohio State University, with a B.A. in English.  Hang on Sloopy is one of our school songs.
  3. I am a practising attorney in Ohio.
  4. I am married, but no kids yet.  I have an older brother and a younger sister.
  5. I have memorized the first paragraph of the Gettyburg Address.  No it wasn't a school assignment, I'm just a nerd.
  6. I was a member of The Ohio State University Marching Band. TBDBITL
  7. My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice.
  8. I went to Frnace & Italy in 2010 and it changed my life.
  9. I studied English Literature abroad in London, England.
  10. I have read Moby Dick and Anna Karenina.  It's an accomplishment, trust me.
  11. I love Starbucks!  Especially, the Starbucks in Barnes & Noble.  Books and coffee, what could be better??? Well, it would be better if they had wine, but then how would I get home?  Wait, if Barnes and Noble has wine, coffee and books...why would I need to leave?  Interesting....
11 Questions asked by tagger Insomnia of Books:

1. What is your favorite drink?
  • Spumante, which is Italian version of Champagne.
2. If you were on a deserted island, what two things would you take with you?
  • Can I take a working cell phone???  Otherwise, I would want a knife and a lighter...I know boring but practical.
3. If you were able to invent something, what would you invent, and why?
  • Something that would tell me if I am going to like a book.
4. What is your next read? Are you excited about it?
  • Probably The Beautiful and the Damned, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
5. Which do you prefer: reading paperback and hardcover, or reading e-copies on Kindle and iPad?
  • Paperback, but not mass market.
6. Chocolate-flavored icecream or vanilla-flavored icecream?
  • Chocolate!!!
7. Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you want it to happen to you?
  • I am married, so it probably wouldn't be good at this point.  I believe in it for books and movies, but not necessarily life.  Being with someone forever is hard, and love is sometimes a choice instead of an affliction.  I guess I just think we have control, sometimes, over who we love, and love at first site means that you don't.
8. Do you like historical novels? Why or why not?
  • Love them!!!  It takes me to a simpler time, in a world I am unfamiliar with.
