Books – 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History

I am an avid reader!  I have read since I was a very young child.  When I was very young, I read the Laura Ingles Wilder series about Little House on the Prairie.

I have also always loved mystery books!   I read most of the Agatha Christie novels!  I like the Sherlock Holmes series of books.  When I was younger, I read the Nancy Drew series too.

I also like biographies and true stories.  I have read most of the books written about Presidents Kennedy and Lincoln and the events surrounding their assassinations.  I read the books about the latest true crimes that make the news.

When I was a teenager, I started reading romance novels and I was hooked.  I still read them.   I usually read at least two or three a week.  My current favorite authors include Lynnsay Sands, Nora Roberts, Diana Palmer, Julia Quinn and others!  I usually read a novel in about an hour and a half.  I especially like the books that are part of a series – I like the story to continue from one book to another so the characters become more real!

Week #23 – Books

Week 23. Books. What was your favorite book, or who was your favorite author from your childhood? What do you like to read now? Books or other formats?

CLOTHES – 52 WEEKS OF PERSONAL GENEALOGY & HISTORY

Well, I am a little late with this post but here it is anyway.  When I was a kid, I mostly wore jeans and t-shirts and that really hasn’t changed much through the years.  I still mostly wear jeans.  I have never really been in-style much and I mostly don’t care!  I did do the parachute pants and the leg warmers during their in-style periods in the 80’s but then I kept wearing the leg-warmers and slouch socks for long after they were out of style because they were comfortable!

I tend to wear what is comfortable not necessarily what is in-style!  I do love boots and they happen to be in style right now but then again I wore them for years when they weren’t really in-style.  Comfort is the main thing I look for in clothes!

Week #24 – Clothes

Week 24. Clothes. What types of clothes did you wear as a child? What was “in fashion” and did your style compare?. What types of clothes did you wear as a child? What was “in fashion” and did your style compare?

This challenge runs from Saturday, June 11, 2011 through Friday, June 17, 2011.
