The last book you read:

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries

What are you currently reading?

Following the Equator by Mark Twain

Well, let me assume I was there against my will:

Boat Building Manual by Robert M. Steward

A Star to Steer Her By… by Edward Bergin

Freedom From Fear: Overcoming Anxiety, Phobias and Panic by Liebgold (I harbor an abiding terror of the open sea)

The Iliad and The Odyssey, Homer

Dean Esmay, because I am malicious.

Joseph Marshall, because I am curious.
