I got this questionnaire from THIS blog, and thought, Why not?

1. Favorite childhood book?
Dr. Suess books, Little House series.

2. What are you reading right now?
20,000 Leagues under the Sea (Captain Nemo=♥ What did I tell you, He's a bad guy, naturally I like him best! However, the Professor's servant is...well..I like him too!).  The Voyage of Slaves by Brian Jaqcues (The Outcasts of the Flying Dutchmen series were recommended to me by a blogger friend, and I'm glad I took their advice! Mr. Jacques scores again!).  And 'A Break with Charity' By Ann Rinaldi (Ms. Rinaldi is an excelling writer as well!)

3. What books do you have on request at the library?
I have none.  I haven't found out how to do that yet at mine...I need to look into it and put 'Night Circus' up, though!

4. What do you currently have checked out at the library?
20,000 leagues under the sea, 2 History books, Icecore, Captians Courageous, A Break with Charity, Voyage of Slaves,

5. Do you have an e-reader?
No, but I want one, like, BAD.

6. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
As much as I can!

7. Can you read on the bus?
Yes, but since I'm homeschooled I hardly ever ride buses.

9. Do you ever dog-ear books?

Amazing writing, epic plot, awesome characters, action, and emotion.

12. What will inspire you to recommend a book?
If it is a freakin' awesome book that makes my heart race.

13. Favorite genre?
Science Fiction, Fantasy, action, and adventure.

14. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews?
If it is a bad/poorly written book, there is nothing I can do about it.  However, most books I've read have something good in them, and I try to point that out as well.

15. Favorite Poet?
Hmm...I'm not into the Poets, per say, as much as the Poetry itself.

16. How many books do you usually have checked out of the library at any given time?
7, because thats the limit the library has set. Which really stinks.

26. What would cause you to stop reading a book half-way through?
If it had dirty language or content that was inexcusable.

27. Do you like to keep your books organized?
YES! I have my books arranged by series and publisher.
