    I remember those. I really only enjoyed the cover art and the general idea, I guess. And the accuracy was definitely off...

    It's the pillow book of a fictional girl, and it's like eight hundred pages long. This page has some more info.

    Books are one of my favorite things in the world. I've always had a longing to be an author, even though I'm no good. I can eat away a book at amazing speeds too; I finished a 400 page book in about four or five hours, including lunch breaks. Not as fast as some, but I consider it pretty good.

    As far as particular books I like, I have a few. I can't casually like books. I have a very obsessive personality. I will find a series (it rarely happens with singular books) and read and think over it constantly.

    Below are particular series I've been obsessed with over the recent months:

    Percy Jackson: I adore these books for the rich world they create. I've always like mythology, and setting that up in a modern era made this series irresistible.

    Harry Potter: It's been a while, but I liked these books for the characters. Great characters and LOTS of them to love.

    Artemis Fowl: This is my current love. I like these for the actiony plot and also for the characters. The world set-up isn't as attractive to me as Percy Jackson, but I'm learning to love.

    ^^ Funny thing is that I don't consider myself a fantasy fan, yet all these books are fantasy.

    Gone with the Wind: The only book not in a series that I'm in love with. I fell for these because of the character development. Scarlett, for better or for worse, changed a lot throughout the book. I was very interesting to contrast her in the beginning with who she became at the end. Also, Melanie is my great. I wish all my friends were like her. Scarlett had no idea what she had until it was too late!

    Black Beauty: The only horse book I really love. Classic and near perfect, simple as that.

    And there is so, so much more I'm too tired to type...

    ***

    Now, for a critical question. I have literally lost sleep over this thought and am wondering opinions.

    Annabeth and Percy versus Holly and Artemis versus Ginny and Harry.

    Who would win in a fight? (Magic and weapons permitted.)

    I'm the same. I can't read two books and once and if i'm in a series, I just immerse myself and get my hands on the next books as quickly as possible.

    I am more into fiction than non-fiction. I like a good story :)
    Yep, I've read every single Maximum Ride book to date with the exception of the most current- Fang. They are all by James Patterson. I can safely say that those books are my favorite series.

    And yes, I am a reader. My library so far-

    Stormy,


    I LOVE Hitch-hiker's Guide! I've read them all three or four times over and have a magnet in my locker with the quote, "In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people angry and is widely regarded as a bad move."

    Also, Ford is awsome personified.
