Right now, I'm reading:
Jules Vern - I've got 35 of his books on my kindle and I am working through them.

My favorite story of all time is:
Thumbalina and The Bridges of Madison County

In bed I like to read:
Chariots of the Gods

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
The fact that everything that happens seems to be connected somehow. Example You just sold your old broken down truck for a good portion of cash and the very same day your hot water heater goes out. Damn the hot water heater is out, but luckily I have the money to replace it.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Life’s a journey of unexpected events.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Still working on that....
