That picture of me is 13 years old, but I think I'll keep it since I look so young...and blonde! LOL :o)

I am happy in having learned to distinguish between ownership and possession. Books, pictures, and all the beauty of the world belong to those who love and understand them- not usually to those who possess them. All of those things that I am entitled to have I have- I own by divine right. So I care not a bit who possesses them.- James Kehler

Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself.... You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms. - Angela Carter

SO MANY BOOKS, SO LITTLE TIME!!! I'm throwing out my local library card because I now have a huge, international library that, except for the price of postage, doesn't charge any late fees and I get to communicate with the people who read the book before and after me!

I discovered Bookcrossing through (and my house has been a mess ever since!) Call me a BC nerd, but there's no thrill like anonymously releasing books in public and then sneaking away!hehe!

Which Author's Fiction are You?
brought to you by Quizilla" border="0" alt="HASH(0x8b7719c)">
You're the color blue. You have the three c's in
life--you're cool, caring and confident.
Trustworthy and honest, people are naturally
attracted to you. You're unusually optimistic,
but that makes life all the better. You're an
imaginative person who loves sleeping and
dreaming. Hard-working and determined, you
excel in school. You're everybody's favorite,
and this is because you have this undefined
richness in your personality and attitude.
Mild-tempered and stable. Not to mention very
intelligent. Along with the fact that you're
conservative, you're worried about the
environment. So basically, you're generous,
dependable and devoted--just the kind of person
everybody needs. Wouldn't it be great if
everybody in the world were like you?

What color are you? (Amazingly detailed & accurate--with pics!)
