What Was Your Favorite Book Growing Up?


On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. You might have heard that we interviewed LeVar Burton this week! The interview will be up soon, but in the meantime—and in honor of Burton's work on Reading Rainbow—what was your favorite book growing up, and why did you love it so much?

2. The latest Marvel superhero film, Thor: The Dark World, hits theaters today. If you could have any super power, what would it be? I'd love to have the ability to teleport. It would definitely beat taking the subway to work!

3. What's one thing you saw/read/did this week that made you laugh until you cried? This did it for me. 

4. Your turn! Got a question for the group? Ask away, and have a great weekend!

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
