Overall, it has been a great reading year.

  3. Ohhh, I love your answer for "Describe where you live." LOL! I wish I'd read that book, it suits me too. *g*

    Wonderful answers all around.

    Have a wonderful New Year!

  10. Hi Pepca! Thanks so much for playing along and linking up! This meme has been so much fun! :)

    Great answers! I particularly like 'Lament' for what the weather's like. I usually don't mind winter, but right now I'm lamenting it isn't summer. I can also relate to where you live 'Surviving with Wolves'. It can feel like that around here at dinner time... ;)

    Happy reading in 2012!
