Questions from Book- Marks the Spot:
  1.  How long have you been blogging?
    I have been blogging seriously for about 2 months now. 
  2. Why did you want to start blogging?
    I read so much and wanted to find a way to let everyone else know what I thought. My husband was tired of listening to me, lol!
  3. Where are you from?
    I was born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles. I left to attend college in Tucson, AZ and met my hubby and stayed in AZ.
  4. What is your favorite movie?
    Such a hard question! I have favorites from every genre, but I would have to say Clueless. I saw it in the theaters two days in a row and have been reciting quotes from it ever since!
  5. What are your hopes from your blog?
    Hmmm... To have fun, read, find new authors, network, and have something that I created.
  6. What are you afraid of?
    Spiders and scorpions. We have too many of both out here in the desert. Yuck!
  7. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
    This is a name I had been thinking about for a while. I have asthma and when I was little I couldn't do much without having problems breathing so I read. I got to be anyone and do anything while reading and nothing was holding me back. So instead of breathing like a 'normal' person, I breathed in books!
  8. If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
    To be like Mary Poppins and have my house cleaned magically! 
  9. Who is you favorite book crush?
    Col. Christopher Brandon from Sense and Sensibility. And having Alan Rickman play the character in the movie just made me love him more!
  10. Do you review every book you read?
    Not officially. I will always do a mini review in my head, but I don't have enough time to review everything!
  11. How many books do you plan to read this year?
    My goal is 200. I am a little behind, but I will catch up by the end of the summer.
