Musings, Memories and Miscellany from our MoM’s

Today our Featured Member of the Month is:  Mendy
Mendy was named MoM for April 2009

1. How long have you been a PBS member?

Almost 6 years now… my join date was 6/16/2005

2. How did you find PBS? How has PBS impacted your life. What does PBS mean to you?

I found PBS through a good friend. PBS has brought friends into my life. I can’t thank the PBS community enough for everything they’ve done with me…. my Avon Walks for Breast Cancer, the swaps, the crafts, the illnesses.

3. Did you read as a child? What was your favorite book growing up? What book impacted you most as a child or young adult?

I devoured books as a child. Growing up I loved all books! The books that impacted me the most were those written by Judy Blume. She seemed to know so much about what I was going through as a tween/young adult.

4. What is your favorite or most meaningful book read as an adult?

I’ve read so many of them that have moved me or meant something to me. The most recent meaningful book is the best I can do right now. LOL The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. I was happy, sad, and angry through this entire book. I love it when a book makes me feel things and this one made me feel so many things. It’s one book that I don’t regret reading.

5. What are you reading now?

I’m back into a cozy mystery phase. I’m on chapter 3 of Buzz Off (Queen Bee bk 1) by Hannah Reed. I love that it’s set in my home state of Wisconsin – I even know a few beekeepers so it’s a fun read.
