What was your favorite childhood toy?
It may sound silly, but the honest answer is that I didn't spend a lot of time playing with toys — I was the girl who always had her nose in a book instead. I believe I had one favorite Barbie that lasted a year before my brother ripped her head off, but a good book always won out instead. (For photographic evidence, please see my childhood picture — that is, in fact, an encyclopedia that I'm reading. The coolness is undeniable.)
