WHAT SPARKED YOUR LOVE OF READING?
The first chapter book I remember being read to me was "Stuart Little". My mother read it to me when I was sick with the measles, so I must have been around four. I remember being completely absorbed in the story and then asking for more and more chapter books.
ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS?
My favorite books from my impressionable teenage years: "Gone With the Wind"; "Rebecca" and anything by F Scott Fitzgerald. More recently: "The Crimson Petal and the White," "American Pastoral," "Atonement," " The Goldfinch," and "Life After Life."
WHAT DO YOU READ WHEN YOU REALLY WANT TO ESCAPE?
The Jack Reacher series by Lee Child and The Detective Lynley series by Elizabeth George.
