On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. You might have heard that we interviewed LeVar Burton this week! The interview will be up soon, but in the meantime—and in honor of Burton's work on Reading Rainbow—what was your favorite book growing up, and why did you love it so much?

2. The latest Marvel superhero film, Thor: The Dark World, hits theaters today. If you could have any super power, what would it be? I'd love to have the ability to teleport. It would definitely beat taking the subway to work!

3. What's one thing you saw/read/did this week that made you laugh until you cried? This did it for me. 

4. Your turn! Got a question for the group? Ask away, and have a great weekend!
