Asking me to pick my favorites of the above categories is like
asking a mother to choose which of her kids she likes best. If
pressed to answer:
Books - To Kill A Mockingbird, Everything Is Illuminated, The
Giver, The Canterbury Tales, As I Lay Dying, The Heart Is A Lonely
Hunter, The Pillars of the Earth, The Amazing Adventures of
Kavalier and Clay, The History of Love, and a great deal of poetry.
Plus I maintain avid subscriptions to National Geographic,
Smithsonian, and Vogue.
