Today I have the pleasure of hosting a unique Author Blog Tour featuring LAUREN BARATZ-LOGSTED. She is the author of many amazing novels, my favorite being CRAZY BEAUTIFUL and now she has a new YA novel that is being released next month named THE EDUCATION OF BET and I cannot wait to read it. So, come and join me today to see what Lauren has answered for my part of this great tour idea.

If your memory could be erased so that you could reread a book, What book would you choose ? And why?

Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It's about a man, a woman, and another man. It has everything: stunningly gorgeous writing, an exotic setting, fascinating characters, romance, comedy, drama, magic realism, and it's my favorite novel by a living author. I've read it many times but I would love to have again that opportunity of reading it for the first time. I originally read Love in the Time of Cholera over 22 years ago, when the U.S. translation was published in March 1988. Exactly a year later, I was in Florida vacationing on the beach with friends when I saw a woman reading the book. I asked her if it was her first time, and she said yes. I envied her.

Here are the other stops on the One Question Blog Tour:

June 10: Drea: Do you think a woman during this era could have truly done what Bet did? om

June 14: A.S. King: Can you write me an itinerary of a typical writing day for you, and include your feelings about the best and worst parts of a normal day?

I often wish I could read abook for the first time again, so I wouldn't be able to choose just one!

I've always wanted to read Love in the Time of Cholera, maybe I'll get around to it one day.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
