Award winners share 11 facts about themselves, answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who tagged them, come up with 11 of their own questions and tag 11 more bloggers with the award.

11 Facts about me:

1.  I love photography and yoga.
2. I have four animals, 3 cats and 1 dog, that I rescued from the pound I volunteer for.
3.  I am a vegetarian.
4.  I sometimes skip to the end of the book to find out what happens because I can't wait!
5.  Two of my favorite books are The Jungle Book and Watership Down. 
6.  I like to take vacations in places I can go hiking.

10.I am married, and have a younger brother and two stepsisters.

Questions from Bookworm8921:

1.  What is the first book you can ever remember reading?  Henny Penny.

2.  Do you re-read books? If so what book have you re-read the most? Watership Down

3.  Have you ever liked a movie based on a book more than the book itself? No

4. How did you decide on what to call your blog? I can be pretty idealistic and impractical, lol.  I love birds, but my husband also calls me magpie sometimes because I am attracted to shiny objects.  And I can talk the ears off my family and some of my friends; my mom and dad both say I talk too fast as well.

5.  How many books are you hoping to read this year? Last year I read about 125 or something like that- I was hoping for 150, but I got off to a bad start.  After reading 11/22/63, I took a major break - not because of the size, but because I was blown away by how good it was.

6.  Do you have plans to write your own book?  I toy with the idea, and sometimes even start writing. I guess I would like to, but don't have a plan. :)

7.  What was the last book that you read? 127 Hours- Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

8.  What is your favorite movie? Oo good question! I love the movie Love Actually.

9.  Who is your favorite actor/actress?  I love Michael Fassbender and Emma Stone.

10.  What tv shows do you enjoy? Castle, New Girl, Glee, Top Chef, Grimm, Once Upon A Time

11.  Do you collect anything other books? Animals? Dust? No, I used to collect fairy figurines but I don't anymore. :(  Maybe I should start again.
