What are the top five books on your Christmas list for Santa?  A few books I would like to find in my stocking include the Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Almost famous women stories by Megan Mayhew Bergman,Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt,  The Cat by Colette and Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.

It’s Secret Santa at Hogworts, what would you most like to receive?  The Invisibility Cloak of course.

You get to spend the day with the characters and movie adaptation actors from one fandom, what do you pick?  I would choose the stars of Bridget Jones diary ( I fancied myself as a Ms Jones in my single days and loved the book) , we could have the blue soup dinner party at Bridgets flat. 🙂

What fictional animal would you like to replace Rudolph and be able to meet on the roof?   Aslan from ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.

52 Lists: Books I have enjoyed.

Although I used to read lots ( I mean lots! as a kiddiwink I bordered on antisocial as I always had my head in a book), these days I’m lucky if I manage to read three novels a year. 😦 I don’t know exactly why ~ i think its maybe because I havn’t found anything so riveting recently, that I want to leave my life temporarily and get lost in a good story. I think I just need to find a good story!  But anyway here is a list of some of the books I’ve enjoyed over the years…..some are still in my bookshelf. 🙂
