Well, I could keep watching the evening news as the twitching arrow on my Public Moron-o-meter comes perilously close to falling right off the far end of the dial...or I could answer the RevGals' Friday Five:
Earliest book you remember (read to you or by you): The Night Before Christmas -- also the first book I could read.
Picture book you would like to climb into: Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass.
Favorite series of books (then or now): The Pippi Longstocking books were a big favorite of mine. And Thornton Burgess' animal books.
Character you would most like to meet: The Cheshire Cat. And the Frumious Bandersnatch (despite all warnings to the contrary).
5) Last childhood book you re-read (for yourself or to someone): The Annotated Alice.
