Oh my, for all you non-Read-a-Thoners I'm really sorry for this overload of posts lately but I promise this will come to an end as soon as school starts for me again (which is like...next week, although I still refuse to believe that!).
But on to My Literary Best Friend (challenge hosted by Auggie Talk)
...that would have to be - you guessed it - Hermione Granger. It's not just that we - obviously - both love to read. It's scary sometimes how much of me I recognize in her when I start another round of rereading the Harry Potter Series. We both get made fun of ALL the time because we feel that need to raise our hand every freaking time a teacher asks a question. It's ridiculous!
I can see us sitting next to each other in class, competing on who knows the answer first, who can raise their arm higher or who snips their fingers the loudest :)
At the same time, though, it'd be awesome to have someone to discuss books with or to break rules with, because apart from reading the thing I can do best is get myself into trouble. Hermione and I would be the perfect duo to fight dogs (that own three heads, of course) and trolls and all the other rather nasty magical creatures!
So that's it from me - I'm already looking forward to all of your literary BFs :)
And now: Challenge numero 2!
The Passing Books Challenge hosted by Reading in Texas and The Space Between
I feel kind of bad for admitting this, but after I finish a book I do the most selfish thing there is : I keep it. And if I say it, I mean it. Practically every book I ever owned - including the books that were read to me when I wasn't even able to read - is still in my parents' house. The rather recent ones (about 7th grade and up) sit on the shelves (and piles) in my room and the others are kept in boxes in the attic. When we moved into our new house the one thing my stepfather said to my mom was:
"This girl is only five years old. She can't even read yet. Why does she own more books than you do?"
