Q. What are your five favorite books, and why?
A. The Cat in the Hat, by Sr. Seuss, because who doesn't need a couple of "things" and an easy way to carry them? Ring World, by Larry Niven, because it shows us the power of our possibilities. Bicentennial Man, by Isaac Asimov, because it shows us that at any time in our lives, we must evolve or become irrelevant. The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien, because it shows us that no matter who we are, we matter in the world. The White Dragon, by Anne McCaffrey, because dragons are cool, dragon riders are even cooler and Anne McCaffrey is the coolest author who ever lived because her worlds are full of dragons!
