The last book I read wasInto Thin Air
by Jon Krakauer. I have read all of his books, they are quick reads. I love them because they take you to that quiet place when you're along with you're your thoughts and it is all so well articulated.
What animal would you like to be reincarnated as, and why?
A black panther. They're calculating, powerful and quick -and they have black hair, which is the color of what my hair would be if I had any!
Choose a superpower.
The ability to be in multiple places at one time.
What did you dream about last night?
Sadly, I don't remember my dreams. Once my head hits the pillow it is lights out in every sense of the words.
