  1. Oh what fun! I'm like you...when it comes to a good book, I can totally get lost in it, no matter what else is going on.

    1. Katie, your comment came to my email but didn't post here for some reason. Very strange. Good to know I'm not alone in getting lost in books. ;)

  5. Interesting insights. I heard RR speak at a conference in Connecticut. He is very down-to-earth and inspiring. I can see why he was (is?) a popular teacher!

  7. Thanks for tagging Donna Yates. I tagged eleven people but I had Donna from Weaving a Tale or Two and I thought it would be confusing. Also, yes same questions--how lucky!

  8. I loved finding out so many interesting facts about you! I am also a big fan of Rick Riordan- I think his Percy Jackson series is amazing. A few years ago he spoke at a local Barnes and Noble and he read part of the 5th P. Jackson book to the crowd. We got to meet him and he autographed books. He threw out Camp Half-Blood shirts to the crowd, but I didn't get one. I hope you get to meet him soon!
