  12. Favorite novel: Wide Sargosso Sea by Jean Rhys

  13. Hi Carrie!
    My favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird. Being a lawyer I thought it was brilliantly written and I aspired to be like Atticus Finch.

    My second favorite, also a courtroom drama, A Time To Kill by John Grisham because he so skillfully captured the emotion of trial for the lawyers.

    Would love a couple of new books to read!


  14. My favourite book(s) is Phillip Pulman’s trilogy His dark material. I also loved Audrey Niffenegger’s The time travellers’ wife.

  15. My favorite author of all time is Nora Roberts (J.D. Robb as well). Just love her! I enjoy how she creates series so you learn the stories of each character. There’s enough steam without getting too explicit. She’s great!


  16. I feel a need for 2 categories so I just created them. For light reading, my favorite author is Patricia Cornwell. For serious reading, my favorite author is Fydor Dostoesky.


  17. My favorite books are THE CATSWOLD PORTAL by Shirley Rousseau Murphy and BLACK BODY by H.C. Turk.
