What are your five favorite books, and why?
The following are my favorite five books in no particular order and why I like them. 1) The Blindside because it is a very touching story about a young man that started with nothing and had a very happy ending because he became a NFL player. 2) Tom Sawyer because it is a story about a young boy that stays in trouble all the time. 3) 1984 because I graduated in 1984 and it is interesting to see how much of that story has really come true. 4) Hunger Games because my youngest son introduced me to the book. It is different to say the least. I hope our world never gets to that point. 5) To Kill a Mockingbird because it is a classic.
