Favorite Movies Lots...I tend to watch certain movies over and over, whether they're Oscar caliber or not! Movies like Urban Cowboy, Coyote Ugly, A League of Their Own, Midnight Cowboy, That Thing You Do!, Return to Me, Jaws, I can go on and on and on... I am open to almost any movies and I love seeing something new.
Favorite Music Everything! Favorite band of all time is the Beatles, but I love almost all classic rock, as well as every era in between, and genres like classical, jazz, heavy metal, alternative, etc. If I hear it and I like it, I'll listen to it. I don't care what genre or era it's from.
Favorite Books Too many to list... I love mystery and suspense, especially books like "A Is for Alibi" and such by Sue Grafton; Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware novels; Patricia Cornwell's novels, Ann Rule's true crime (I love true crime!), and so on. I'm also very into history and love reading about World War II and the Great Depression. I especially find the Battle of Stalingrad fascinating, as well as the DVD series "The World At War" absolutely engrossing. I just finished a book about the Dust Bowl which was really neat, and a book about Hawaii by Jack London. But I'll read everything from comics to true crime. I can't seem to find enough time in the day to read!
