Our 10 Answers
  1. There are so many books that I love! So many that I have been pulled into so deeply that putting it down is simply not an option. There are two books that come to mind when answering this question. The first is Pride & Prejudice (or Emma) by Jane Austen and the other would be Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. I know... totally different books, but they both end up in England during what seems to be much simpler times. But there is still intrigue, mystery, and enlightenment along the way. I'm not sure that I would want to live there on a permanent basis though... maybe just visit for a while like in Shadow of Night. ~ Jackie
  2. My Kindle, solar generator and gaming PC. ~ Izzy
