My fellow blogger Christi Gerstle at Novel Conclusions (http://novelconclusions.wordpress.com/about/) has been kind enough to award me this award. You will find her blog interesting as well as fun, covering a multitude of aspects of this writing life we live – pop on over.
Now for the award rules : The Booker Award is for book and literary blogs that are at least 50% about books, reading, etc. On being awarded with the Booker Award, you must share your top five books (and that’s the trouble!) How does a book fanatic chose only five? Each decade of my life I have had books I re-read time and time again and I can assure you that would be a very long list. So I am going to list the ones I return to because they delight me. You will notice one is a children’s book and I’m not ashamed to admit I still love reading it.
Now the next hard question…who is your favorite author and why?
I will have to say Stephen King tops my particular bill. His expertise in creating a relationship between reader and character has me in awe. Each character, whether good or bad provokes a reaction and that is great writing.
I struggled with this question. Which is your favorite genre?
To be truthful I don’t have one favorite. I read what appeals at the time I am browsing the shelves but I don’t seem to read mysteries. Not sure why.
Now the fun part choosing who I can share this award with…
