The Friday Five

Not that often are there questions that interest me, but this week...books. I love books.

1. What was your favorite book during childhood?
The Boxcar Children. I know, but I wanted to live in that boxcar in the woods. Loved The Secret Garden, too. Places without adults seemed to appeal to me.
2. What is your favorite book now?
The Magic Apple Tree by Susan Hill It's a year of life in Moon Cottage, in England. Lovely book. Always wanted to live in the country and have animals and grow vegetables.
3. What is your favorite movie adaptation of a book?
Don't usually like movie adaptations. Maybe the Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. American versions of movies I've seen from other countries usually stink. TV shows, too.
4. Do you prefer checking out books from the library or buying them?
I love the library. Can bring home an armload of books for free. How can you not love that? I belonged to libraries in three different towns when I lived in New Hampshire.
5. Have you ever been let down by a book that was highly recommended to you?
The Torchwood books pretty much sucked. Harry Potter around the third book, which is when I quit reading them.
