I saw a Latin edition of “The Hobbit” last time I was at the bookstore… Do you read any foreign languages? Do you ENJOY reading in other languages?

No and No. I know a little conversational Spanish and that is all.

What’s the last book that made you spring to your feet, eager to spread the word and tell everyone how much you enjoyed it?

“White Wolf Moon” by Mike Grant. This book spans decades of emotion, life, love, and music. I felt very close to the characters Mr. Grant created. I cried, laughed, and sang right along with them. A well-written novel. I would recommend to all readers over 20. I don’t think anyone younger would appreciate the music or the times, but there may be a few.

What’s the silliest (most foolish?) book you’ve ever read? Did you enjoy it?

A few months ago I read the ‘Jeeves Collection’ by P. G. Wodehouse. The book was silly, foolish, and very funny. I enjoyed reading about the antics of Bertie Wooster and how his butler, Jeeves, helped him out of some very sticky situations. I found it a very enjoyable and fast read.

Meme
meme n (mëm): A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another. From the Greek mimëma, something imitated, from mimeisthai, to imitate.
http://btt2.wordpress.com/about/

My favorite example of a meme comes from Heith Michael Rezabek: My favorite example of a crucial meme would be “fire” or more importantly, “how to make a fire.” This is a behavioral meme, mind you, one which didn’t necessarily need a word attached to it to spring up and spread, merely a demonstration for another to follow. Once the meme was out there, it would have spread like wildfire, for obvious reasons… But when you start to think of memes like that — behavioral memes — then you can begin to see how language itself, the idea of language, was a meme. Writing was a meme. And within those areas, more specific memes emerged.

Happy Spring Equinox, everyone! What book are YOU choosing to celebrate with?

I am currently reading two “Baby Boomer” Novels. One is “Goodbye Emily” by Michael Murphy.
Goodbye Emily
The other one is “The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club” by Duncan Whitehead.

Both books are good reads and recommended. I can usually be found reading 2 or more books at one time. 🙂

Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices? I know there are plenty of books I enjoy, but only if Im in a particular kind of mood–or books that can lift me out of a bad mood without fail. Surely I’m not alone?

You are not alone. If it is something that I have already read, I have to be in a certain mood to re-read it. If it’s something new I will tear into it as soon as possible.
Right now, I seem to be writing a lot more than I am reading. I find it hard to even keep up with my book clubs right now. So which is better reading or writing?

Clocks change this weekend here in the US, which means one less hour to read … does anybody else begrudge that hour like I do? Wish the Powers That Be would just pick a time-frame and stick to it instead of inflicting clock-driven jet lag on an innocent public twice a year?

I hate when clocks spring forward one hour. That means a precious hour is lost. My hours are special to me. How dare they take one away.

Oh well, the good side is that we gain an hour of sunlight in the afternoons. My husband loves this. It gives him time to work on things outside when he gets off work; but me, I’m a morning person. I produce my greatest work in the morning. My brain has a tendency to shut down after lunch.

I can take a short nap, or just a rest, and feel revitalized again for a few hours. I use this time to prepare dinner and spend some time chatting with hubby. By then, my revitalization has worn off and my brain is mush again.

I don’t do change well either. It takes awhile for my old body to adjust to these new hours. It throws my schedule off and it is just like starting all over again.
