Save the cheerleader, save the world

OK, how many of you out there are watching Heroes? This has got to be the best show on television this season. Tonight's episode was nothing short of awesome. This show makes Mondays worthwhile.

In other news, word is that Disney is making a sequel to the popular National Treasure movie. I am sure we'll be heading to the theater for that one when it is released.

And now a meme I found at Carrie's:

1. How old were you when you learned to read and who taught you?
I have no idea how I learned to read; even my mom isn't sure how I learned, but I was reading the Little House on the Prairie books before I went to kindergarten.

2. Did you own any books as a child? If so, what’s the first one that you remember owning? If not, do you recall any of the first titles that you borrowed from the library?
Tons of books... I don't remember first one, but I was a huge Trixie Belden fan. One of the first books I remember getting from the library was Susan and Her Classic Convertible, by W.E. Butterworth; that and The Nickel-Plated Beauty, by Patricia Beatty.

3. What’s the first book that you bought with your own money?
Not sure, but probably a Trixie Belden book.

4. Were you a re-reader as a child? If so, which book did you re-read most often?
Most emphatically yes. I reread my Trixie Belden books and also all of the Chronicles of Narnia

5. What’s the first adult book that captured your interest and how old were you when you read it?
Unfortunately, probably Helter Skelter. My aunt had a copy on her bookshelf and I spent a lot of unsupervised time at her house. I was probably 9 or 10.

6. Are there children’s books that you passed by as a child that you have learned to love as an adult? Which ones?
I can’t think of any.

I LOVED the Trixie Belden books! I would save my money and go to the used book store and buy more. That set was one of my most prized possessions. I think I really wanted to be that prissy Di!

We're totally addicted to Heroes, too. Last night's was great, but they didn't quite fulfill their promise to explain the whole "Save the cheerleader, save the world" thing. Yes, they saved her, but they didn't really tell us how that saved the world. But I still can't wait for next week.

I read Helter Skelter too... I can't imagine where I got it- yikes! I read a lot of stuff as a teen that makes me shudder now: Steven King, V.C. Andrews and Lois Duncan... since my kids are also avid readers, it's taught me to keep a close eye on what they're bringing home from the library.
