4. If you could meet one historical person, who would it be? Amelia Earhart, so I could ask her what territory she was planning to cover exactly when she disappeared.
5. You are on a deserted island. You can wish for three things. What would they be? I'm assuming I can't wish to get off the island? lol 1) A magic carpet 2) A few great books for the trip 3) A companion to make things interesting

10. Do you like to buy new books or are you ok with used? I'm okay with used as long as the condition is good. Unless it's a super old looking leather-bound book, then the older and the more worn, the better!
11. What have you learned about yourself lately? It's okay if I'm not where I would like to be at this point in my life. The point is that I'm still trying to get to where I'm going.
