1. Can you remember the first book you read?
2. What was the last book (electronic or otherwise) you read?
3. Do you read for enjoyment, work or both?
4. What is your favorite genre of book to read?
5. If you could visit your younger self, what book would you tell yourself to steer clear of?

1. The first book I really remember is "I Love My Grandma", a Little Golden Book that had a fuzzy sweater that grandma had knitted for the little girl who was the narrator. You could touch the sweater in most of the pictures.

2. Jhumpa Lahiri's "Unaccustomed Earth". It was a collection of short stories about Indian-Americans (primarily from Bombay). Most of the stories were set in or near Boston.

3. Both, andsometimes work reading bleeds into pleasure reading.

4. When I want to relax, there is nothing like a trashy murder mystery.

5. I can't think of any.
