Melanie's Questions:

What's the last book you bought?  I actually just bought a whole bunch of books with gift cards!

What's your favorite summer activity, besides reading? Going to the pool, beach, or Kennywood!

What is one of the worst/most-boring movies you've seen? There are so many movies that I've seen and thought were awful but a specific one is not coming to mind. As for boring I'd probably say any Jane Austen movie though I haven't made it through many of them!

Do you have a favorite B&W movie? I love old movies but most of them are color so I'll say Arsenic and Old Lace!

Rina's Questions

What's the longest you've stayed awake? 24 hours is probably the longest straight time I've been awake but I have gone a couple days on only a couple hours of sleep!

What are the next three books on your to read list? Out of the Ruins by Karen Barnett, Yankee in Atlanta by Jocelyn Green, and A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert
