FOUR THINGS TO ASK A STRANGER (almost a parody)

Welcome to Mary Anne Radmacher's blog.

One way to get to know a person you've just met is to ask them to tell you about their favorite friends. It's said that a person essentially becomes an aggregate of the five people with whom they spend the most time.

There's another telling question to ask a stranger. It's all about a book.

1) Is there one book that you have re-read and will read again (and again)?
2) What is the most recent book that you've read and what stands out to you most?
3) What is the title of a book you recommend most often to friends?
4) What was the last book you read that made you so sad when it came to the end? (Because you wanted to keep on reading, not because the ending was sad!).

If the person you are just getting to know has never re-read a book, can't remember what stood out from the last book they read, doesn't recommend books to friends and has never felt sad to stop reading an excellent book...

I suggest that you stop conversing with them. And, perhaps, run. Kidding (not kidding). Perhaps you might consider striking up a conversation with someone else that you might want to get to know. AND start THAT conversation off by recommending a book you've recently read...

THIS IS MY RED LETTER DAY FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY


TO assist in the exciting launch into the world of my newest book, LIVE WITH INTENTION. I poured my finest work into this book and I hope you'll enjoy it - every drop.

LIVE WITH INTENTION is available in all places where books and eBooks are sold...and today is the day that all the book "powers that be" hope that my friends and supporters will give my book its very first boost as it enters the big, wide world.* Will you welcome the work by ordering a copy? Or! ask your Library to bring a copy into the system: a very "green" action.

* I know it's at amazon.com and available on google Ebooks.
