Favorite Book

I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked, “What’s your favorite book?” Honestly I really have tried to figure it out. But I just can’t do it. It’s like asking to pick a favorite star in the sky. Although I will say that the Bible would have to be the sun, outshining all the others.

Least Favorite Book

 George Washington’s Breakfast by Jean Fritz: My one scarring childhood experience. Just the cover is disturbing. Unfortunately I’ve never been able to forget this book….
