�Which book or books are you reading now?
I'm in the middle of Eats, Shoots and Leaves. It's funny, but I can only read about punctuation for so long at a time before my eyes glaze over. I just returned But Didn't We Have Fun? to the library. I wanted to like it, but the author who is trying to write an informal history of baseball's early years wasn't informal enough for me.
�What is your favorite time to read?
Mostly in the evenings, because otherwise there are too many interruptions.
�And your favorite place?
Bed or the bathtub
�Who is your favorite novelist?
It depends on my mood and the moment -- sometimes Jane Austen or P.G. Wodehouse or sometimes someone else all together.
�You favorite poem?
I don't just pull poetry off the shelves to read it all that often, but I am rather fond of Robert W. Service.
�What is the most difficult book you�ve ever read?
The most difficult book I ever have finished was Kafka's The Castle, but then there are books like The Grapes of Wrath and Plato's Republic that for me have been such a long hard slog that I've never finished them.
�What was the first book you remember reading?
I think something by Dr. Seuss, but I'm not sure. I do remember checking this book about Edith and a Bear out very frequently from the library before I could read.
�Do you have a comfort book that you re-read?
Several. The Anne of Green Gables books, some Wodehouse, mostly books I read first when I was a kid or a teenager.
�What is the most erotic book you�ve read?
My friends and I got our hands on Anais Nin one time, but it isn't a category I dabble in much.
�Which classic should you have read?
Lots of them. I some how graduated from a college that is famous for its English major without taking a single English class. Which means I missed out on many things I should have read. But I've probably read more German literary classics than you have. Not that I remember them anymore though.
�Which book did you never want to end?
I can't think of a single book, but I wanted the Anne books and the books about Betsy and Tacy to continue on forever.
�What is your most overrated book?
Besides anything by James Joyce?
�Which character could you have an affair with?
�Who is your favorite character?
It all depends. There are so many great characters in books, it would be hard to pick just one.
�Which character do you most dislike?
Again, I'm not sure. I mean there are some really evil characters to hate out there. Kafka excels in some, for instance.
�Which character do you identify with most?
I always liked Maud Hart Lovelace's Betsy and Anne, when she's in trouble. Maybe Ramona. And of course, Elizabeth Bennet.
�Which book changed your life?
Oddly enough (because I am not Eastern Orthodox) it was a book called Facing East: A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy by Frederica Matthewes-Greene that started me down the road to Catholicism.
