If you would ever burn a book (God forbid), which book would it be? Why?

When I was about 12, my grandmother gave me a series of so-called Christian books about a girl named Peggy. They are long gone, but if I had them, I would enjoy destroying them. They made me feel horribly guilty. Peggy was converted by a group of “Christians” who objected to going to the movies. The books were very weird. When I told my mother why I didn’t like them (although they were a gift from her mother), she said, “Don’t read them!”

Are you a monogamous reader, or do you like to read around?

I’m a promiscuous reader.

Last one, and be honest: Do you skip ahead to the ending?

I try not to. But sometimes I am a naughty girl.
