Sally Field, Emmy-nominated for her portrayal of matriarch Nora Walker on ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters.”

Last book I bought:
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” by J.K. Rowling and “Edith Wharton” by Hermione Lee

Book I’m reading:
“The Peabody Sisters” by Megan Marshall and “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy Total number of books I own:
I don’t want to spend the day counting them, but a hell of a lot.

Three books that mean a lot to me:
“Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte
“Rilke on Love and Other Difficulties” by Rainer Maria Rilke, translation by John J. L. Mood
“Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown, illustration by Clement Hurd

Last film I saw:
Just a constant stream of Turner Classic Movies. Eventually I’ll get this year’s screeners…and I’ll watch them for months.

Three films that mean a lot to me:
“The Wizard of Oz”
“The Awful Truth”
“Norma Rae” — because it certainly changed my life.

Last CD I bought:
I rarely buy actual CDs. I download music on to my iPod. But I just got Yo-Yo Ma’s new CD “Appassionato”… it’s now downloaded onto my trusty little gadget.

Band currently playing:
The Spinners

Songs that mean a lot to me:
“Moon River” –because I sing it to myself when I’m on a bumpy flight….during the bumps not the whole

time. And I sing it to my grandkids as a lullaby.
“Dear Mama” by Tupac Shakur — because one of my sons gave it to me.
“Eli’s Coming” by Laura Nyro — that’s why I named my son Eli.

Favorite Drink:
California Chardonnay and Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Must be Canada Dry and must be cold over lots of ice

Favorite Charity:
Sundance Institute, Vital Voices

Favorite Vacation:
Anywhere with my whole family…where I don’t have to cook and clean.

Favorite Vice:
OK….it’s my one glass of great cold California Chardonnay every night…maybe a glass and a half….and I have to have a sliced Fuji apple (a must) every night not necessarily with my chardonnay but I have to.

Five people who I’d like to see answer this survey:
George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Lindsay Lohan, Osama bin Laden, Nelson Mandela
