Last night Fred and I went to dinner with two of my friends from high school. We met over at our friend Mason's new house to see how the decorating was coming along and upon entering his house, we saw this:
Yes, that's "Tommy" the knight. I have my opinion of the knight, but Mason wanted me to ask my female bloggers for their opinions. So, what do you think about his knight as a decoration?
FYI: Mason is a 27-year-old, single, male who has his own house, car and a job.
Today's "Ten on Tuesday" hosted by Roots and Rings is addressing the topic of books. Click here to play along.
1. Favorite book(s) when you were a child and why?
"Rags" - It was about this dog who chased away robbers from his grocery store.
2. First “grown-up” book you remember reading (i.e. written for adolescents or with adult themes, such as The Outsiders or Catcher in the Rye).
For some reason, "To Kill a Mockingbird" comes to mind. Great book!
3. Favorite movie that came from a book (even if you didn’t read the book and just love the movie).
"A Walk to Remember" by Nicholas Sparks. The book was phenomenal and the movie was good. It makes me cry every time.
4. Movie that you loved so much that you WISHED there was a book out so that you could find out more about the movie.
"The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks. I remember finishing this book in a doctors office and I was just crying so hard.
5. Worst book you’ve ever read?
"As Long as She Needs Me" by Nicholas Weinstock. It wasn't what I was expecting.
6. Book that everyone raves about that you either a) haven’t read and feel slightly dumb for not having read it or b) have tried to read and hated and so feel slightly dumb that everyone is getting something you don’t.
"Harry Potter" - My husband loves these and so does everyone else. I just don't get the attraction.
7. If you were forced to choose only 3 books that you could read for the rest of your life, which ones would they be? (Or if you were stranded on a desert island, which 3 books would you want there with you?).
The Bible, "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch and "The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks.
8. Name one book that if you could recommend that everyone you know read, what is it?
(From Chelsea: I’m going to make a late rule here that says “The Bible” doesn’t count because obviously I wish everyone would read this book!)
"The Last Lecture" It will make you think about your life in a whole new perspective.
9. What is your “guilty pleasure” reading?
Chick Lit. I love it. Some of my favorites authors are: Emily Giffin, Nicholas Sparks, Jennifer Weiner and Lauren Weisberger.
10. What book (excepting the Bible or other major document of your religion/faith) has changed your outlook on life the most?
"The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch. You will have a new aspect on life and love after reading this book. What an amazing story. It's an easy/quick read.
