It is week 14 and here are the questions and my answers for this week:
1.) What is your biggest pet peeve?
I don't have too many real pet peeves, but I am a stickler when it comes to books. I don't like bent pages. I don't like broken spines or basically any kind of damage to a book. I'm picky about who I loan them to and how they treat them when they have them LOL... I'm such a book addict!!!
2.) Do you shop online?
I do quite a bit of shopping online actually. Especially for things I can't find around my home town. We are a very small community and very rural, so sometimes it's easier to buy things online than travel 200 miles to find them. I am also an ebay shopper. I like to find batches of books and buy them on ebay. Sometimes you can find an entire series. You have to be careful about condition but most of the time you can tell what they are going to look like from the pictures that are posted.
3.) Have you ever traveled by train?
A train line ran through our community when I was a kid for years. It wasn't a passenger train though, mostly coal from coalfields. I had the really horrible experience of losing a friend to a train accident when I was in middle school, so I rarely think about riding one. But, I did travel on the Christmas Train with my brother when he was a CubScout. Santa visited all the kids and gave out gifts, it was really nice, but I tend to shy away from trains after the accident.
