  2. Only one favorite book?! I don't think I can narrow it down to just one...let me see.
    Okay, okay--this is my favorite that I've read most recently--Prisoners of the Sea by Florence M. Kingsley. It is a Lamplighter book and was written in 1897. It is my favorite that I've read recently because it was completely unpredictable(despite the blah title). =D
