Friday Five


1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?
Words in a row. Science fiction. Convert stories. Non-porn romance novels. Historical fiction. 19th century plays. 2 newspapers daily. Newsmagazines. Medical journals. Basically anything that I happen to be interested in at the time. Even the phone book or dictionary will do, and as a child I read my way through a couple of encyclopedias, skipping only the sports stuff.

2. What is your favorite novel?
I honestly don't know. Earth by David Brin is one that I've reread a few times recently. 8 Cousins by Louisa May Alcott is another that I like a lot, and I have an fondness for Heinlein despite some of his wacky ideas. (or maybe because?). I am not all that fond of many of the 'Great Classics of Literature' - whether that is because of or in spite of my BA in lit I cannot determine.

3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Dappled Things by GM Hopkins is a close second
and let's not forget Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, and most of Shakespeare

4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?
If I want to read something, I generally get around to it. My wish list is up on Money more than time keeps me from reading many things.

5. What are you currently reading?
Articles of Faith by Cynthia Gorney (a history of the abortion and pro-life movements in the USA)
Tolkien, Man and Myth by Joseph Pearce
The Culture of Death by Wesley Smith
The Catholic Catechism (1932) by Cardinal Gaspari
By What Authority by Mark Shea
current issues of Crisis, Magnificat, Envoy, Catholic Digest, Reader's Digest, Guideposts
