Buffalo, NY -- August 12, 2007

Reading Just Once, by Jill Marie Landis. It's romantic fiction with a touch of humor.

Her favorite books--Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell; Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin; and Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte.

She likes Gone with the Wind because, while it's a romance, it's deeper than that...all of the books deal with women in society and they all use language well.

Her own book? It'd be about her home town--Bristol, England. It has a lot of history, including the slave trade, sugar and tobacco, and John Wesley who started the Methodist Church.

Recently she visited Savannah and bought Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and read it while she was there--it was very good.

She generally reads for entertainment, to laugh, though she also reads film books --she has a degree in film--and history books, mostly American and European history.
