Friday Five 1 What Is Your Favorite Type Of Litera

Friday Five

1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?

I guess I'd say that of everything, my single favorite form is the extended essay -- I actually read the New Yorker every week!

2. What is your favorite novel?

My stock answer for this is "The Princess Bride" by William Goldman.

3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)

I have a particular soft spot for "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love" by Christopher Marlow.
4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?

Some of the great novelists have stumped me repeatedly with their long works (Dostoevsky, Joyce, Mann). And I wish that I had access to more plays.

5. What are you currently reading?
The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl.
