- They say that books read as a child make more of an impact on a person than books read at any other time in life. Are there any books that you particularly loved, that shaped the way you think when you were little? I’m not asking if you believed in fairies then but don’t any more. I’m asking about patterns of thought, morality–something that made an impact.
- And, of course, examples, please!
- Also, did you read this book/these books more than once? Many times? Even if that’s not a usual habit of yours?

Thanksgiving November 23, 2006
It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. of A., and so we’re taking this Thursday off . . . or at least, not asking about books.
But if you’d like to share what you’re most thankful for this year, we’d be glad to hear it!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
Reading Lists, Part Two November 15, 2006
- So, last week we asked you if you kept a list of books that you’re interested in, wanting to read, wanting to buy, etc. This week, we want to know–do you keep a list of the books you’ve READ?
- If so, how? In a journal? A notebook? On the computer?
NaNoWriMo November 2, 2006
- Yesterday, November 1st, began the annual NaNoWriMo challenge–where lots of marginally crazy people try to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. What do you think about that idea? Crazy? Inspired? Challenging?
- Would you/Have you tried it yourself? In other years? (Or this one, in which case, shouldn’t you be writing and not reading blogs?)
- If you took away the time pressure, would you/have you tried writing a novel of your own?
(Hey, and for you knitters–there’s a copy-cat, sweater version, too! NaNoSweMo. After the Knitting Olympics, knitting a sweater in a month doesn’t sound so crazy.)
