It's a 3-4 hour drive to the Atlantic.

Mt. Eisenhower in the White Mountains is the tallest mountain I've climbed.

TPBM sees salt water on a daily basis.

No. I could if I wanted to, as the sea is only a couple of km from my home, but I'm too lazy to go there on a daily basis. Also, I'm not all that attracted to beaches (I like living close to the sea, though - the moist air suits me).

PBM has lived in a desert climate.

Yes. Though not that much of a desert.

The old joke about North Americans think 100 years is a long time, and Europeans think 100 kilometres is a long way comes to mind. Across the Canada from Vancouver to St. Johns, Newfoundland is about 5020km as the bird flies. One of my sisters lives in St. Johns so she lives closer to Tallinn than Vancouver.

Well, yes, it's mostly true.

In my adolescence, absolutely. I (almost) never reread now; too many unread books out there.

TPBM has fallen out of love with an old favorite.

I rarely drink tea, so no.

PBM's reading preferences haven't changed all that much since their teens.

In some ways, yes. I tend to read the same two main genres however the content of fantasy and science fiction has changed drastically.

The PBM, for the most part, reads one genre.

No. I regularly read several - fantasy, science fiction, mystery, historical fiction, occasionally romance and nonfiction (although my nonfiction is mostly magazine and web articles, not so much books). I've read other genres besides these, but not consistently.

PBM prefers novels to novellas and short stories.

I do like to lose myself in a story... and novellas usually don't provide enough duration for me to get lost.

TPBM has a sofa/armchair purchased solely for reading in.

I don't have any comics from my younger days. OTOH, I still have my collection of Ace doubles from the 1960s/1970s.

The PBM has read a tête-bêche bound book.
