• For this week’s Musing Monday, I’m going to give you the option to answer any of the following questions — or, if you prefer, you can answer them all! Have fun! {questions were supplied by my readers when asked for suggestions}

• If you had to choose only 3 books to read forever, which ones would you choose? My answer to this will change over time--but today I'd have to choose the complete works of Shakespeare, Stephen King's The Stand, and Knitting Rules by The Yarn Harlot (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee)

• Is there a character that you absolutely love but that you cannot get a good mental picture of? I couldn't get a clear idea what the characters in Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro looked like.

• Make a plea for your favorite book. Make others wanna read it! I'd say a book that appeals to men and women is Pillars Of The Earth by Ken Follett--it's got history, romance, intrigue, drama, humor, and everything in between

• If you could create a soundtrack for a book you’ve read recently, which songs would you use and why? I would use several of the Now That's What I Call Music cds plus some mash-ups to make a soundtrack for Dare Me by Megan Abbott

• Do you read outside your preferred genre? Has your preferred genre changed? I do read outside my preferred genre because of my book group--we read a smattering of everything! My preferred genre hasn't changed but I've become more open to reading other genres.

• Do you have a favorite book/movie combination? I thoroughly enjoyed Julie & Julia by Julie Powell and the movie with Meryl Streep... although I loved the Harry Potters!

• Name a book that you thought you wouldn’t like much, but you ended up loving. the Harry Potter series

• If you were Book Czar of the world, is there one book you would like to require every kid to read? To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. A classic.

The Stand and the Complete Shakespeare works will keep you busy. Smart choice.

And wow for answering them all. I really could not manage to muster up answers for all of them.

WOW... You answered them all. I only answered one. I agree with you, To Kill A Mockingbird was a fantastic read.
